Our mutual attraction was immediate. You made the first move, I fell in step, and for a while we were inseparable. We looked like lovers but…

You appealed to me from Day 1. You looked like the leading man straight out of a Hollywood movie. Your attitude was a little unsettling. Your conversations grew increasingly fascinating. There was never a dull moment with you. You were uncomplicated and that was what I needed. You could not have entered my life at a better time…

I had recently separated, but you already knew that, didn’t you. What you didn’t know however was that my attraction to you kept my head above water and saved me from drowning in sorrow. I clung to you when I should have been dealing with the changes in my life. I dreamt up scenarios of a future together rather than face my uncertain future. You offered me companionship; allowing me to escape my solitude. You made me feel desirable when my self-confidence was shaky. You gave me hope that I would one day fall in love again…

You were precious to me. You made me feel safe when I was going through a difficult period in my life. Truth is, I was selfish. I let you fall in love with me. I let you think there was a future for us. I let you whisper tender words of love. I gave you my body as if forever. I made you promises I could not keep. I broke your heart to save mine. And for all that, I beg your forgiveness…

But I also want to thank you. You were a safe haven in stormy weather. You made me forget my anger and pain. You assuaged my sense of solitude.

I finally understand what the term “Rebound” implies…
