3 signs that you’re in a rebound relationship
The type of rebound relationship occurs when one who has recently experienced a [bad] breakdown decides to jump into another.
The time here might not truly be the factor. The rebound determines more the status of the previous partner/common weight.
It is perhaps not the best thing to do if you’ve yet to get your head out of the relationship and the former partner out of your mind.
We can all agree that trying to drown an ex by getting another’s memories isn’t a brilliant idea and no one really wants a ‘replacement’ or a ‘stop-gap solution’ rather than a choice.
So how would you deduce that someone is trying to use you as a rebound?
Here are 3 signs that you’re in a rebound relationship.
- They’re with you, but still obsessed with the ex
If he or she isn’t going to be shut out of the ex or seems so intent on making that former jealousy imaginable in all the near and distant ways, he or she is unlikely to get over the person or even stop you.
How are you going to know? You both share a young relationship with each other and are keen to make everybody know they are happy and satisfied with you even if it is only a long time ago. You may also find them acting as a long-term couple, even if you have just begun dating.
- It looks like they’re in it just for the sex
Nothing is wrong with casual sex, however, which would only be meaningful if you both are open and upfront on what you both want.
But if your partner is only for the sexual distraction and you try to make a relationship work, it can be a problem. And if your relationship with your partner feels like that, you should probably be worried.
- The relationship is just on the surface
According to Men’s Health, exploration is all about new relationships — that person who is suddenly so important in your life you learn as much as you can. So that could be a rebound if your new partner hangs behind you if they are vulnerable and unclear if you feel like they are using a false smile, but don’t actually make you know them. Allison says, “She doesn’t give you deep, sincere eye contact, and she doesn’t feel as if she’s completely present. “She seems too much in you, has been spending a lot of time with you but doesn’t seem to be her authentic self, or she doesn’t ‘let you inside.’
