Hey, y’all! I don’t even know why I’m trying to make speaking like a southern girl but I am LOL. Anyways, Hi. Welcome to this week’s column on things I want to talk about. As you all already read in the title, we’ll be talking about rebound today. Could you be one? Maybe, but in case you’re still in denial here are some clues you better look for just so you get a clearer vision of your relationship.
Número uno: Your freshly out of a relationship partner is head over heels for you. He/She loves you and they don’t mind saying it even if it’s way too soon. Not that you’re not amazing or anything, but they barely know you to even say that yet.
Dos: Their ex still lives rent-free in their mind: perhaps you’ve noticed them trying to make their ex jealous or you constantly hear stories about how awful this person was to them… no matter what they say, it’s obvious they’re not over that person.
Three: You have tons and tons of sex and sometimes it feels like that’s all there is. Especially if you don’t have much to talk about in between these encounters, and that leads to my next point.
You don’t have much in common. To this person you’re just filling in the blank space their ex left and will soon occupy again. So those “new activities” you’re picking up on because your partner is interested in are most likely exactly what they used to do together.
They don’t have much of a personality: at first glance, they could seem like they have a lot going for themselves, and sure they can be charming or seem interesting but soon you discover that they have no hobbies or goals whatsoever. It’s like their past relationship was literally “their life” their interest in you morphs and it’s not hard for them to break up. For some reason, they don’t want to work things out even though with their exes they would’ve tried everything to stay together. And, if she/he is breaking up with you out of the blue it means they’re probably done using you.
Do any of these sound familiar? If so, RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN. Or…make sure they take it slow and let time tell. We’ve probably all been in this position and I mean, whatever if you come to peace with it, but it’s pretty easy to fall for someone’s kind words so just put yourself and your feelings first.Comparte
