I think some people just use okc to give themselves an ego boost, like picking up a different stranger in a bar or club every night, or drinking, or talking about their custom-built mercedes nonstop. They have no intention of sustaining a relationship, regardless of "chemistry". Boo hoo hooing won't change that. I'm not saying don't boo hoo hoo but get it over with and get on wth your life. You were burned. Did you not have anything going for you in your life ten days ago? Well, now it's like 12 or 13 days... But do you still have a job? A place to live? Enough money to buy food?

And it can happen after 10 days and 2 dates. Took me 3 years to get over one such encounter.

The brain / biochemistry thing works in mysterious ways and is very powerful. It's not that easy to simply make it 'go away' through logical reasoning or force of will either.

If it was I guess there wouldn't have had so many novels / operas / plays / movies exploring the theme.

I seriously think some of you have issues if you think it's a valuable use of your time to tear people apart on here and pass your judgments, post your insults, and ridicule others. Maybe you should consider your own mental state if this is how you spend your time and consider therapy a good option.

Thank you to everyone who read my initial post and who was so kind to send me some sympathy and good advice. If I could have filtered out the ridicule and insults it would have really helped me heal.
