For some reason, all of your friends get awkwardly silent when you talk about how wonderfully your new relationship is going, but that’s just because they’re jealous. And you’re you’re not in love—you’re an emotional maniac. After a big breakup, the idea of going cold turkey into going solo is low-key terrifying.
The time just after a breakup would be better used rediscovering the real you and standing on your own two feet for a while. This other person might have genuine feelings for you, and it will be devastating for them, when they find out they have been used.3.You could be settling for second best You probably won’t be too fussy about your choice of partner for a rebound relationship too, and that could get you lumbered with someone you don’t really like.It’s unfair to the other person You really are playing with the other person’s emotions when you date them on the rebound, and they are quite likely to get hurt.Using someone in this way isn’t fair, because you won’t be fully over your ex yet.A failed relationship is not usually just one person’s fault, so you will need some time to take stock and think through what has just happened.
