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.


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,



I must've interpreted OP's paragraph completely differently.
From what I read, he mentioned "dating" one person for a week, then "dating" another person the next. I would have to seriously doubt anyone to be in a "serious" relationship with someone within a week, and break it off with them to go into another "serious" relationship for another 7 days. Again, dating someone does not always equate to a serious relationship.

My brother's wife was like that. She waited until she had started a relationship with my brother before dumping her ex. In her words she "didn't want to be single". I guess it's a thing. Didn't help that her boyfriend was a total tool as well. She's a good person and has been with my brother for almost 10 years now.

I don't think it's usually healthy. It often fuels desperation, clingy behavior, and poor choices in partners. It's especially difficult for those that avoid being alone because of low self esteem--can't rightfully love another unless you love yourself first.

in my case, it would be hard enough to get into the first relationship. After the breakup, that is when the months of prep work begin for the next victim...I mean partner

People can do what they want. Some people just don't like being single. Some don''t want to commit to a serious relationship.

Ummm....... Because.........

hmmmmm..........

Thats what young people do?

Oh wait I know!

I have a friend who does this exact same thing. They can't be alone, they need attention hah, yeah! Thats it. He can't take the hardship of accepting being single, and hes probably been through a lot of women.

xD For the life of me, how the fuck people can do this. I think the underlying problem is sex, because as soon as you have sex in a relationship, that is when you will realize what kind of person you are dealing with.

Sex...... Ok the answer is SEX There, I feel better now that I have give a good answer.

Well I'll be, it seems like different part of OP's argument seems to infer completely opposite situations . I'd hardly even call dating for a week a 'relationship' xD so I do agree with ya there
