However, your appearance is very important when you’re in search of a new partner – and not just because looking your best is a way of getting attention!Both sexes are more attracted to people who take care over their appearance: by showing you care about how you look, you indicate that you want to be found attractive.
I really like this guy and feel there’s a connection, but I’m afraid that if I pursue this I’m going to end up being the rebound no matter what I do.I thought about your situation and there are a few things I wanted to touch on in my response.First, you mentioned that he was very stressed after having broken up his relationship of 10 months a couple of weeks ago.You followed that up with, “I was confused because I thought he really liked me.” Maybe I’m missing something here, but his recent break up with his girlfriend has nothing to do with whether or not he likes you.This means you already have the skills required to make a relationship work.
