That's terrible, in my opinion. It's as if they weren't serious with you.

I think they have a higher risk for more std jumping from many partners example -Charlie Sheen

If you're talking someone who dumps someone just to jump onto the next person that comes along it depends on the type of person. If it's someone getting out of a bad relationship more power to them. If it's someone dumping just to date up at the expense of the person they're dating with no regard to their feelings it kind of gets me sick.

Now on the other side of the equation. I had a steadfast rule in college; if I got dumped and then met someone I wouldn't sit on my hands hoping the person I had just been dumped by would come back (except in the case of my ex-fiancee, which was a very bizarre relationship in itself). I wouldn't hesitate to get into another relationship as I rarely "just dated" anyone and liked having someone there to care about who cared about me.

When did dating suddenly mean going steady with someone? The way the original post is written it sounds as if the individual being described is dating someone exclusively for a week and then dates someone else exclusively for a week.... If I wasn't going steady with someone I would date around, potentially a different guy every weekend. No one cared unless you'd been dating someone exclusively or going steady with them and then suddenly dumped them for someone else.

It's hard to say, one minute you could be loving someone so much that you want to explode of happiness, the next you're breaking up, and after that, it's like you didn't feel anything. I guess it could sound selfish, and for the most part, it usually is, but it's not always the case. Don't just judge someone based on how they react AFTER the relationship is broken off, they may have loved someone very much, but their emotion doesn't allow them to hang on to them.

I guess most people think of this kind of situation like 'The Great Gatsby'?

I'm not interested in relationships to begin with but if I was in one that ended I certainly wouldn't just jump into another.

How do you feel about people that just date someone and as soon as they break up, they go to date someone else without even experiencing being single for long? I know many people that date people one week and literally are dating someone new every week after. Personally I think it is good to take a break after dating and not just continue to jump from person to person. There are exceptions but I think usually people need to take time reflect and maybe see where your last relationship went wrong. Plus being single can help you find out new things about yourself and grow as a person.


Dating someone doesn't always mean you're in a relationship with them. What you're describing is casual dating. As in going out, hanging out, spending time with someone to get to know them. If they are not worth getting to know further, there's no reason to get serious with them. It depends on the person how they cope or the duration of their breaks between candidates. Some people are not looking for commitment and are just looking to have fun and make the most of their freedom, while others are looking for a candidate for a long-term relationship. It really depends on the person. Not everyone who dates casually is a slutbag or fuckboy. Some people already have it together and know what they want.

I find that to be kinda weird imo
I only date people I've known for awhile, so I get to know who they are as a person
Don't know how people do that tbh

i don't think that it something i could ever do, but i can understand that some people may wish to do that, and i mean, if they want to, then they can absolutely do whatever they wish, and i won't stop them, but i have to actually get to know the person.

People will do as they please. Not everyone is wise, intelligent, or capable of giving a shit.

Honestly i feel thats a horrible way to go about things but maybe they struggle to deal with how the first one eneded and are using the next one to cope. Even so that is not the way you want to start a new relationship. its important to give it some time so you can understand what went wrong and also to learn about yourself.

This.
There doesn't have to be a grace period in case someone changes their mind and if someone's leaving a bad relationship then they should feel free to take on a new relationship with out being slut shamed.

If I may intervene, his usage in the topic title, 'people-that-jump-from-1-relationship' as well as the term 'breaking up' infers a somewhat serious relationship as the term generally refers to the end of a serious and often intimate relationship.

If my interpretation of the author is right, then I believe that jumping from one relationship to another is a rather negative thing, as it assumes you dropped that important person in your mind within a rather short time,

This is true however alot of the time its just a rebound relationship which is good for no one.

it's hard to judge if one is or not
