As Sam Smith put it in his song Dancing with a Stranger:
“I need somebody who can take control
I know exactly what I need to do
‘Cause I don’t wanna be alone tonight, alone tonight, alone tonight
Ooh, baby, baby, I’m dancing with a stranger”That’s what a rebound boils down to. We’ve lost the person we actually cared about and now we just need somebody, anybody, to fill the void for a bit.
But sometimes, a bit turns into a lot longer, as these anonymous people will attest.
10. The 3 year stretch
That’s quite an accomplishment.
9. Happy and in love
Good for the both of you!
8. Started in my cups
You never know what that sloppy night might just turn into.
7. Madly in love
The kind of madness that nobody minds.
6. The love of my life
To light me up and start me anew.
5. It’s in the game
“I rebound so quick I should be a NBA all-star.”
4. The wife swap
Well. You win some you lose some.
3. Going strong
That’s nearly a decade!
2. One night stand
That’s a good stretch for perfection.
1. All of them?
You’ve got some kind of magic in you.
I guess you just never know what will happen when you go dancing with a stranger.
Have you ever been in a rebound situation? How did it turn out?
