Being in a rebound relationship isn’t one of the coolest experiences for women who are looking for someone that will love them unconditionally. Yes, the person that you may be in love with so much may just be using you as a springboard to ease the pain of heartbreak.
Sometimes it may not be his fault, but then you’ll want to be sure you’re not in a rebound relationship so that you don’t get your heart broken.
Let me give you a cheat sheet of rebound relationship signs to look out for, to be sure your new man isn’t only using you to get over his heartbreak.
Your relationship is moving faster than you expect
Yes, it makes a lot of sense to tighten the grip on someone you feel truly loves you. But hey, when your new relationship is beginning to move faster than you expect, you have got to check it girl.
Don’t get fooled by the kind words and affection. There is a very real chance that you could just be a distraction from his recent breakup saga with his ex. This is a very glaring sign of a rebound relationship.
You sense that they may still be bitter about their ex
I don’t know about you, but I’m always wary of guys who harbor bitterness for their ex, or past relationships. Yes, they can put up a front like they have gotten over their ex, but deep down, they often wish they could make up with their ex.
Is this someone you want to be in a relationship with?
Obviously no. Hard truth; you’re his visa to getting over heartbreak. He can easily reunite with his ex, leaving you heartbroken, is that what you want? I don’t think so.
They want to make their ex-girlfriend jealous
This is one very clear sign of a rebound relationship every girl should look out for. When you begin to sense that your man always want to make his ex-girlfriend jealous, especially when he is with you; you have to be careful, so you don’t get hurt on the long run.
It is overwhelmingly clear that men who want to get their ex-girlfriends jealous aren’t over them yet. If the opportunity presents itself, they would most likely want to mend the fences with their ex, even at the expense of their current relationship. You wouldn’t want that would you? So, when you notice this, its time you get out.
He claims to love you dearly even though you’ve just met
Getting over heartbreak can be a tad difficult for some guys. That is why some guys will always jump into the next available relationship; to escape the hurt that comes with heartbreak.
Of course, you’re loveable and deserve the best, but then, when a guy you just met or a guy that hardly knows anything about you, starts spewing undying love for you, that’s a red flag. You have to be careful and make sure you’re not being lured into a rebound relationship.
In a nutshell
Being in a rebound relationship isn’t the best for any woman out there. You will want a relationship that you know will not just make you happy, but stand the test of time. With these tips above, I’m sure you’ll be able to recognize a rebound relationship from miles away.
