They also had an object placed on their arm, which at one time produced a warm, pleasurable sensation, and another was heated up to cause pain.Using functional MRIs, scientists mapped what areas of the brain responded to each of the four sensations.I’ve been dating a girl for about two months and I really like her. The problem is we started dating just a month after she got out of a long-term relationship. Is she really ready for another relationship, or just on the rebound?Scooping up girls and guys “on the rebound” is a time tested way to get laid…whether they’re emotionally fragile or just newly single and horny, it’s easy pickins.Just like the pain of burning will help you instinctively jump out of a fire, the pain of getting dumped will instinctively help you jump into a new relationship.As you might guess, cavebabes on the rebound were a lot more desperate than modern women need to be.But if you’re interested in a long-term romance, does it make sense?
