Dating someone on the rebound
He needs a chance to go through the phase of attempting to win his ex back and fail and then mourn the lost of that relationship before he is ready to be receptive to loving again.Right now he is a bleeding heart and bleeding hearts have no room to accept new love.The experience of breaking up with a long term lover is perhaps best summarized in one of Michael Jackson’s most immortal lyrics: ‘Bad.Really really bad.’ Sooner or later, pretty much everyone on the planet feels the grim pangs of heartbreak, and we all deal with the pain in different ways.
Most people assume that a rebound relationship is actually a bad way to cope with a break up.
A rebound is a new romantic relationship that begins in the immediate wake of a break up, often before feelings regarding the previous relationship have fully subsided.
Rebounds will usually occur around six weeks after the initial break up.
But if the only reason you’re getting into a relationship is to forget your ex, and not really to fall in love with someone new, then perhaps it would be better to let your new date know what you have in mind rather than hurt them later. Many of us fall into a rebound relationship without really realizing it.
It happens all the time with consoling friends of the opposite sex who are attracted to each other, on chance meetings at a party and even when old crushes get in touch immediately after a break up for a feel-good call.While it's totally possible to meet a new sweetie you genuinely like, most people who go through a tough breakup need a good amount of time to themselves to get over their ex before they can move onto someone new.
