Any trigger that reopens this wound, such as a romantic partner calling it quits, can cause a spiraling of emotions that can lead to feeling completely and utterly emotionally dysregulated.

But before you give him your number (or your panties); ask yourself: why is he single? He quickly proclaims that you’re his true love and soul mate.
