Everybody talks about how they "want to take a year and figure themselves out," but all those people usually end up getting serious with the first Tinder match with an acceptable face.
Since we're a generation of settlers, let's just accept the fact that you will have a rebound relationship soon. Same thing people did on December 31st, 1999 -- prepare for the worst and hope that you won't have to resort to eating cans of tuna fish in your basement.
Cosmopolitan has been labelled as one of the most popular international women’s magazines in the world, which begs the question, why on earth did they steer away from anything other than their specialities of relationship advice, sex, dating tips, fashion, health and celebrity news?
Well sex sells and don’t we all know it, but in 1999 Cosmopolitan somehow “made a connection between sex and dairy” (Jensen 2013), more specifically, sex and yogurt… Well Cosmopolitan called it something different – a “fetish”.
So it pays to be direct with them before things get too serious.
This whole idea came from a survey that suggested “65% of readers had used edibles in the bedroom” (Marmite 2011), somehow I don’t think the respondents were referring to cheese or yogurt….
Cosmopolitan assumed their new “sexy” dairy product would be an instant hit overnight because of the popular magazine’s success, so they scrapped the idea of any form of marketing, advertising and promotion (also known as “piggybacking” off an established brand)… Although somehow I don’t think the world’s best marketing plan could have even saved this product from failure.
You can be planning a European vacation or a trip to KFC for some lava-hot wings. So, why not apply that aspect to the relationship you're feeling pretty "meh" about?!
Checking in with your rebound is important in establishing goals, motives, boundaries, and a hopeful end date. You both find out that you're feeling warm about the relationship and hope to end things cordially. You put off the talk, get married, have five kids, and they all end up in unfulfilling relationships.
