What I am going to do for you is discuss all the factors that go into them so you can hopefully apply them to your own situation and determine if your ex girlfriend is in a rebound relationship.
Now, I am assuming you are reading this page because your ex girlfriend just entered into a new relationship with someone else and you are trying to determine whether or not that new person is being used as a rebound by her.
My mom, who adores my kids second only to their parents.
As my children and their needs as people grow, it seems that our circle of people shrinks – and the pressures of being a single mother mount.
Seriously, that is the official definition according to a divorce support website I stumbled across.
So, if we are to look at this definition then that means that a rebound relationship can only occur if the person was in a very serious or super loving relationship first.
“But I said to myself, ‘I hope this girl can find time to process it all.
Because sooner or later it will catch up with her.’”It has caught up with me.
Eighteen months after my marriage ended, I jumped into a heady, sexually intense year-long relationship with a fellow writer and parent who was 20 years older than I was.
In hindsight, it was no surprise it ended — his kids were grown, mine were tiny, our lives were at different points.
This last option—when individuals sever the relationship but then recommit to it—becomes particularly intriguing when couples break up and make up again and again.
