You feel super vulnerable and scared, and you act like a weirdo with new guys because you're just super off your game. Not because we don't want to do it sooner, but because our last relationship was with a nightmare monster from the sea, so we're always waiting for the shoe to drop. Especially if our last boyfriend would do super-nice things for us after treating us like crap.
With that in mind, here are 11 things we wish guys knew about dating someone who is fresh off a bad romance. So no, you didn't do anything wrong by buying us flowers. We probably won't want to introduce you to our friends because we assume you suck.
I know you don't see yourself as a random person, but we do.
But life is unpredictable and beyond our control—sometimes it’s just not meant to be. Her Standards Are Different Now Standards always change when you go through a breakup, hopefully for the better.

He's still getting over the girl he thought was The One. I'm so confused, especially because this keeps happening to me.
He kept saying that it would be unfair to me (or any other girl) because he would judge me to her standard. I want to keep seeing him, but I also know what I want. I want to be important to someone, and I don't want second place. I always meet guys who are at a weird point in their lives and I don't know how to break this terrible pattern.
I found myself forgetting about my ex in the time we spent talking, and found myself flirting and enjoying his company.
