The most dangerous thing about rebounds —plus the toxicity of course- is that it is not announced. You get into a relationship with someone, it is all fun and butterflies at the beginning then suddenly it is all topsy-turvy.
Rebounds are complicated, heartbreaking, and confusing, not just to you, the reboundee, but surprisingly for the rebounder themselves, and yes they might not even realize they are rebounding, or that they are using you as a rebound. A rebound is more of a healing mechanism that takes up the empty space left by the relationship, happening quickly after breakup and usually people rebound with someone who is the complete opposite of their partner.
It is basically when you want to rid yourself of the misery of a broken heart and instead of finding closure with yourself, you carry that emotional baggage into the next relationship. People seek rebounds for so many reasons, some to bring back their self-esteem and feel wanted again, others in attempt to get over their feelings for their ex. Whatever the reason is, rebounds are full of complexities and confusion, and the end is usually not pleasant.
So, here are undeniable s that can save you early on from falling into the trap of a rebound. The breakup is very recent. Getting into a new relationship a couple of weeks or months later after the breakup is only an indicator that they are seeking someone to ease their emotional pain, and here is where the reboundee role comes to play.
Rebounds always feel very causal, empty, or focused only on physical intimacy. They are not consistent and barely commit to any plans. Rebounders are just in it for the fun or to fulfill their own needs, theirs only. They can sometimes skip a day or two without contacting you and refuse to arrange plans ahead like planning a vacation together or a night out with friends. The physical attraction overpowers the emotional bond.
Emotionally, the relationship feels really empty while physical intimacy is peaking. If they constantly talk about nothing more profound than the physical aspect of the relationship, then this should be a major warning. They either talk too much about their ex or refuse to talk about them altogether. They constantly ramble about their ex, whether complaining or remembering how amazing they were, even worse, they openly compare the traits between both of you.
In other instances, they refuse to mention their ex at all, and just bringing up the topic fills them with bitterness or anger. The relationship is moving both fast and slow at the same time.
From the looks of it, the relationship is progressing really fast, but deep down it is shallow and none of you really know anything about one another. Their interest in you runs hot and cold. You have a strong gut instinct that they would get back to their ex if they get a chance. It needs no rocket science to tell when someone is not over their ex yet.
