In other words, there are few things more cruel than dragging an unwitting new partner into your emotional baggage while letting them believe your new relationship is the real deal.Sometimes, though, someone won't even admit to that they're rebounding, much less the person they're seeing.Nothing temporarily numbs the sting of a breakup quite like a rebound relationship.
Does that make you wonder sometimes if it's all too good to be true?
Hell, sometimes they can even grow into something amazing!
This only works, however, when people in the rebound are on the same page about what the relationship is.
Weirdly, though, you feel like you've barely gotten to know them in between all those grandiose declarations and epic sex sessions, and there's a strange lack of actual commitment compared to how much time they spend with you.
Is this person conveniently everything you've ever wanted in a partner and so emotionally available so quickly that they seem to have literally nothing else going on in their lives?
Here, a few clues that you're a rebound to your fresh-out-of-a-relationship partner.Not that you're not amazing and lovable or anything, but they barely know you well enough to even that yet.On the surface, your relationship is growing at warp speed.Within a few weeks, they're declaring their love for you, you're all but living together, and nearly every waking moment is spent in each other's company.Are they calling you The One even though you just met, like, ten seconds ago?In quiet moments, between basking in the adoration, do you feel sort of like a blank canvas they're projecting their feelings onto?
