  • It is not something I would do but for some people they seem to always need someone in their life, even if its for a short moment.

  • I think they are desperate and afraid to be alone. I think it's a deeper psychological problem. JMO.

  • Not that some women are not guilty of this but, in my experience more men do this than women. Women tend to mourn break-ups. But, men tend to try to distract themselves instead of dealing with the break-up. They'll go out the next night & hook up with some random girl, while their ex is at home crying, watching a sad movie & eating ice cream.

    Experts claim that because men don't deal with their feelings immediately that they suffer more later. I kind of call bullshit on that. Yes, I'll admit I'm totally jaded but, I think in general, men are just less emotional and, do not get as attached as women do.

  • I did that in my youth. But after my First DH I stoped, gave myself a break. That is when I met my now DH. Been together 24 years now.
    Some people either do not want to live alone or they are just young and doing thing without thinking.

  • That they're insecure and need someone to be in their lives at ALL times.

  • I think they're looking for someone else to make them happy while being incapable of realizing or being able to make themselves happy first.

  • Not something I would do, but not my business. I think some people are addicted to the rush of falling in love, but not willing to work at staying in love.

    ^^  I agree.  While there are exceptions to every rule, I think in general this is the case.  Most women need to have an emotional connection with a man, but men seem to be able to disconnect their emotions easier and base a relationship on the physical aspects.  There are the female exceptions to this rule too.  I've known a few female bed / relationship jumpers.  They always seem to be seeking themselves in other people instead of reflecting on who they are as an individual.

  • I think people who jump from relationship to relationship end up hurting others and themselves.

  • I don't agree. Relationship jumping is just someone in search of who is right for them. It's like test driving a car. You keep testing until you find the right one for you. I don't see anything wrong with that.
