Defining a Rebound Relationship,
If you feel drifting away with your emotions especially with a long lasting lover and that you're moving into another one, then you're probably in a rebound relationship. Sometimes, rebounding could occur without necessarily breaking up the recent one. It Serves a Purpose,
By connecting to another person, you will protect yourself from suffering the recent loss. It will save you emotional pain and it will keep you distracted most of the time although it moves you on with life misleadingly. So why feeling the misery of the broken heart! as long as you can fix it quickly with a new love, jumping back to the dating scene and reveling in the emotional intensity and passion. Great Expectation,
You can't just expect your new partner to make it up for you. Whether you're abused by the old love or even involved in infidelity, with the new love you could very likely replace one set of problems with another.
Too Fast, Too Soon,
Human nature directs us to seek a committed and fulfilling relationship, in spite of having a bad affaire recently and your strong desire to make it up urgently, be careful of not rushing in the wrong direction.
Masking Your Pain,
The problem here is that you will be using someone to hide your injuries and in most cases resulting in a used and hurt person. In such cases, rebound relationship will cause you moved on after having that person served your purpose. Be honest with your new partner about your intentions.
Being Used by the Rebounder,
If you ever find yourself in rebound relationship with a broken heart rebounder, be careful of not letting him set the pace. Once he/she decides to move on, you'll find yourself in the middle of a whirlwind. If you feel attracted by a rebounder and have the strong desire to make a committed relationship, then make sure your relationship develops slowly and take care of yourself emotionally.
Emotional Pain does not kill,
Experiencing and healing pain makes us feel the people's pain. Emotional pain does not kill; it's what you do to avoid that pain that might kill you. So do a favor for your own and your new partner and deal with your old pain before moving onto another one.
