The danger of dating on the rebound

When you are fresh off of a break up, it seems that you suddenly meet a boatload of people that you feel drawn to.  It’s probably the void your ex left that is pushing you to fill it with the first hottie that gets your attention.  It’s hard to see this when you are going through it though.  This is just one of the risks involved in dating on the rebound.

When you meet someone new, we always say not to mention or bring up the ex, especially on a first date.  The problem is that if the ex isn’t completely out of their system…or the picture, you don’t know if they are truly ready to starting something meaningful with you.

If you have just ended a relationship, do you tell the new person in your life how recent the break up was?  Does it matter if the last relationship only ended days or weeks ago?

Have you ever been the rebound guy/girl for someone and it worked out great?

@Luvbug/Proff??

that hurts!!

If u want to hurt a man intentionally,do that. Coz we visual,so when we see u doing that routine,taking time in the shower just be4 bed and luthering up on lotion,our heads are soiining with anticipation and not talking much or talking in excited expectations..not about sexx…….

U shld see his face when u say,”NO..not tonite”(in ur soft voice) .. :shock: and :evil: in that contortion on his face.

ARed ~ you know men..he’s going through different scenarios in his mind on how hard he wants to “try” to knock your current out of the picture for the weekend! You know they all think they have “skills!”

:lol: Girl, I know. He has a group of women hanging off his every word, so he should just leave me alone.

No way, I’m passing up the man who’s willing to take me, my sister, her infant and all our crap to the airport at 6 am…for that clown. :lol:

Playing devils advocate: Another plus to taking someone to the airport at that time of morning is to ensure that said ‘flame’ will ACTUALLY be out of town so they will have free range to ACK up while you’re gone. :mrgreen:

Not necessarily true. Just because you took me to the airport doesn’t ensure I got on the flight!!!

Ared see Leggs 2:21 post…so there’s hope afterall. I’ve had that used on me before. A dude told me he was going out of town when in fact he was still here just with someone else. We weren’t in a relationship or exclusive, so not sure why he felt the need to lie to kick it. My ex also tried that number on me when we lived together. Fool said he was going somewhere like Kentucky but actually stayed in town that whole weekend partying it up. One of his friends ended up giving him away by accident. So when Sunday came around he got home and I asked how the trip went. He had made up all these things that he did, even said he went to the strip club and told me how many dances he got blah blah blah…so I let him go on and on until I just started laughing hysterically. He was looking crazy, so I said…ok now that you’ve gotten all that out, what did you REALLY do this weekend cause you sure as hell didn’t go to no dayum Kentucky….Kentucky, Georgia maybe. He finally fessed up

Trevor

The wife and I did the same. We talked about what was going on in our lives when some of those songs made their impressions on us.

I thought the wife went loco when The Black Sheep’s “The Choice Is Yours” came on. She loves that song, which is something that I really didn’t know. I’ve been with that woman for 12 years. So, we are still learning things about each other even in something as simple as music.
