Do you want the good news or bad new 1st? OK, bad news 1st. Here it is: relationship experts say the “Rebound Relationships” are rarely based on love. That’s either good or bad, depending if you’re in or out of said relationship.
For the sake this article, I’m going to assume you’re on the outside looking in. Now the good news, you may not believe this, but you can actually make rebound relationships work for you. Give thanks to our creator that the feeling of “wanting to be in love”, usually lasts as long as the new romance lasts.
This doesn’t automatically mean they want their old partner back.
Are you wondering? Is this new romance with someone else, to get over you? That’s the common opinion among experts and non-experts. Rebound relationship dating helps to not think about the break up. They’re used to help people move on from a real love.
Your problem, is also part of your answer to getting your ex back.
Remember this and try to understand, it does not matter why you’re on the outs. It doesn’t matter whose fault it was. It doesn’t even matter who actually called the relationship off. Virtually all relationships founded on real love can be saved.
You will be surprised to discover that your lost love is likely still focusing on what was wrong with your relationship. What if you were a “good guy”, she’ll probably be hanging out with a “bad boy.”
If you are into foreign films, the new guy might just spend his last rent money to complete his “bobble head” collection of his favorite pro baseball team. Or, vice versa.
Are you starting to get the gist of what I’m talking about? If she is spending
time with someone with a different style than yours, this can actually be good for you, for two reasons:
1. Her attention is still focused on you, even when she’s with the new guy. (but, she won’t tell you that)
2. It gives you a chance to see what she’s looking for.
The Rebound Relationship is usually just a Band-Aid.
Take advantage of this time to examine yourself! What if she felt she was missing something while with you, hopefully she doesn’t more marriage material in the new guy, then in you. Rebounds are complicated, with a lot of emotions flying around inside the heart. As she spends time with the new guy, she’ll start to see the flaws in him. After a month or so, the rebound will run its course. Coupled with the new you 2.0, you will start to look pretty good again.
