Being the rebound in dating
If you find yourself in this situation, the most adult way to handle it is to tell your rebound the truth: You are not emotionally ready for a steady relationship.
Give the other person the opportunity to jump ship now and if he decides to stick with you, make an honest effort to remain monogamous until the new relationship comes to an end.
The new relationship starts off on rocky grounds, with unrealistic expectations, and can easily end badly.
The best way to avoid a rebound relationship is to give yourself healing time after a breakup.
The first is that it really is cheating, even if your new guy is just a temp.
Second, ex-sex delays the healing process after a troubled breakup.
Some have gone as far as to say that their rebound was the best sex they have ever had.
On the other hand, we may have been the reboundee - the person a guy turned to after his relationship had ended as he was quickly seeking someone to replace what he lost.
Rebound relationships can start off with a lot of baggage that is left over from the previous relationship.
Many of us have experienced both sides of a rebound relationship.
We may have gotten dumped and immediately gone out and gotten a new boyfriend.Rebound relationships don't have the same feel as a committed relationship, so when your ex comes calling, looking for some ex-sex, you don't think twice about leaving Mr. It doesn't really feel like cheating because this is your ex and the two of you have had sex numerous times before the rebound guy came into the picture.
