Based off the tv character Charlie from 2 and a half men, when a person is fresh off a break-up with there significant other, chances are they will usually try to go for the rebound. But if the before mentioned person doesn't get a rebound in the first 2 weeks they drop their standards down a level. (example, from hot to cute, cute to average and so on.)
Yo, Robert has been single for a week after being dumped by Janet.
Yeah man pretty soon he's going to start the Charlie Harper Sydrome.
From the 2008 movie and book series "Twilight" this is where every girl regardless of age will fall in love wih the main character, Edward Cullen. Somehow women seem to get this unrealistic view that Edward Cullen is a living person and will fall in love with you if you see his movie or read his books enough.
That Edward Cullen is sooooooo cute!
Ohno, Janet has fallen into The Twilight Effect
