These relationships are becoming a more and more frequent phenomenon these days, even if the term is still too little known, which means that the people concerned are rarely fooled! If your new partner knows that you are just coming out of a relationship that still left traces on you, chances are he/she knows full well that you are only looking for comfort and not to take your head off. ! Even more if you announced it cash! But otherwise, it’s up to you to see if you intend to inform him of the ephemeral nature of this new relationship …
Be careful, however, not to break hearts because the transience of the Kleenex relationship can be for you and not for him/her.
