We all know the story of Golidlocks and the Three bears. Goldilocks tried the 3 bears' porridge, but the first was too hot, the second was too cold, but the third was juuuust right.
Well, in dating, there is a new dating term: The Goldilocks Zone. It explains how in dating we sometimes go from one extreme to the other. This theory says that after dating someone who has strong traits one way, you end up dating someone the complete opposite after. Essentially you're finding someone who gives them the exact thing they weren't getting from the previous person. That is the Goldilocks Zone. (For example, dating a guy who was super clingy and the next guy barely responded to texts.)
Author Ann Smith explained in Psychology Today, quote, "When we rebound, we go to the other extreme and end up in the same place."
What you need is someone who is in between the two.
