Your relationship ended and you decide to fall into a rebound relationship that makes you feel confident, sassy and filled with the desire of lust.
A rebound is an undefined period following the breakup of a romantic relationship. In reality, this relationship won’t last long. This is only a temporary feeling that helps fill that void of emptiness, during your breakup period.
Rebound relationship signs
1. Your rebound is similar to your Ex.
Making your ex-jealous wouldn’t get you far. Yet, you know that this rebound is just to make pass time. To gain what you had with your ex, or fill that void of being accepted. Go out and explore and find someone different and new.
2. Your attraction is just temporary.
At that moment your ex is your enemy and everyone else is way better than your ex. The attraction you feel towards your rebound is temporary. This attraction will fade away as you get over your ex. It’s kind of like having beer goggles on. Once the “I hate my ex” haze wears off, the round isn’t quite as amazing as you thought.
3. You just don’t want to be alone.
Breaking with your ex is the hardest thing to do. That’s why you would rather look at a rebound to fill that void of emptiness. Instead of you going to the other rebound to the next, you feel alone and desperate.
4. You’re not over your ex yet.
During this period you would compare your ex to your rebound. Yet you constantly talk about him as if he’s around to your friends. Rebounds are quick relief from the heartache. You’re not over your ex, you would rather definitely not be ready for another relationship. Rebound relationships don’t work because you didn’t give yourself time to let go of your last relationship.
5. You need time to heal.
Time is a healer. If the breakup was particularly hard. You’re not emotionally capable of handling another relationship right now. Flings are not that complicated; serious feelings are bad. You need to let yourself heal. Fill your time with people love and enjoy your time focusing on your interests and hobbies.
6. Rebound relationship moves too fast.
Being in a rebound you don’t get to know each other. A rebound relationship is filled with lust and one night stands. Moving too fast is a sure-fire way to burn out a relationship quickly. The sex might be great and amazing, but you’re going to need more from the relationship. You deserve more than that, and you should look for someone who deserves you.
7. A rebound relationship is just a distraction.
Rebounds are meant to be a distraction. It’s like taking a high dosage of drugs. They make you feel attractive, alive and confident. They make you feel all the things you need to feel to stop the crying and start healing. Enjoy your distraction and then move on. You need that time to heal and looks for someone new.
8. You don’t really care about him.
You might seem like you madly in love. You’re either in love with the idea of being in love or you just love how he makes you feel. Think about it, do u know much about your rebound or do you know anything that makes you interested. You just want to feel wanted and you like getting all the attention. That’s not loving, it is a desire of lust.
9. You are still hurt and confused.
Want your ex to hurt and be confused just like you feel at the moment and you think a rebound will actually do that job. The pain of a breakup leads to a lot of confusion and bad choices. You’re not in a good place to even know what you’re feeling. Dragging someone else into the middle of all that pain and confusion isn’t going to make things better. You’ll end up regretting it and feel ashamed. Do not mix your rebound with your ex, it will just make things more complicated.
10. Someone’s bound to get hurt.
Putting two people will get your ex and your rebound hurt. If you don’t think of rebound relationships as extremely temporary flings, one or both of you are going to get hurt. You’re carrying far too much baggage right after a breakup to handle anything serious. The other person is going to resent the fact you’re not over your ex and he’ll just feel used. You’re still going to be hurting and another breakup is just going to make things even worse. Rebounds end. That’s all there is to it.
11. It’ll just lead to another rebound.
You fell for your rebound to get over your ex. Now you’re breaking up with your rebound a few weeks or months later. Another. It’s an endless cycle once you get started, it will never end. You keep needing someone else to help you get the last rebound. It’s painful and no one deserves that. Walk away from your rebound relationship and focus on yourself. Look at your interests and find something you love. This will help you grow faster and discover yourself more.
12. It’s all about you.
You are not thinking about your rebound feelings and you’re not thinking about ex-feelings. All you care about is making yourself feel better. You’re concerned with your needs and making your ex jealous. Everything is about you. It’s nice to have that completely selfish moment. It does make you feel better. And your rebound relationship won’t last for a long time.
Overall, being in a rebound relationship is a waste of time. It will break you down and shatter you into pieces after being in one rebound relationship during a breakup. This will lower your self-esteem in a time like this; you need time for yourself, to regenerate and discover what you want to do in life this will boost up your confidence. Instead of getting your in a rebound relationship does stuff that will occupy you and reach out to people love. You need the love and support right now and focus on yourself, your well-being is important.
