In an attempt to seek revenge, you may find yourself doing things that are completely out of character for you.
These things may include excessive partying, drinking/smoking, and/or engaging in meaningless sëx (e.g. one-night stands).
For decades, it has been widely assumed that people feeling jilted after a break-up “misbehave” in pursuit of revenge, but research is just now affirming this assumption.
Researchers Lynne Cooper and Lindsey Barber at the University of Missouri led a study that examined the emotional and sëxual responses of 170 undergraduate students who had experienced a break-up within the previous eight months.
According to the results of the study, within four weeks of the break-up, one third of the students had sëx with another partner to ‘rebound’ from their previous relationship.
”People really do use sëx as a way to get over or get back at their ex-partner in the aftermath of a breakup,” Cooper told Live Science.
