Rebound Relationship Signs - Is She Gone for Good?

By Dr. George Karanastasis

Getting dumped by your girlfriend is about as bad as it gets. Unless… you take into account what happens immediately after: your ex becomes single once again. Single and available to date whomever she wants.

You know that other men are hitting on her constantly. The thought of it is driving you crazy. Worse still, you’re well aware that sooner or later… she’s going to give in to one of their advances.

And then it finally happens: she starts dating someone else. The kicker? She’s getting along great with the new guy and their relationship is moving fast. It’s at this point that you lose all hope of ever getting back together. After all, with her new man in the picture, she’s gone for good… or is she?

Fortunately for you (if you want to win her back, that is) this is hardly the case. In fact, more likely than not, they won’t last. And while you can’t be 100% sure, here are 3 classic rebound relationship signs that will put your mind at ease…

1. She gets into a new relationship very soon after your breakup. As bad as this may seem, it’s actually a good thing. Why? Because the sooner she starts something new - the higher the chances of it ending, and fast. Now the real question is, how soon is too soon? And the answer is: it depends. Nevertheless, if it’s anything less than a few months - don’t worry about it becoming serious.

2. She gets too serious with new guy, much too fast. Another major source of heartache for you, but again, something that will (most likely) work in your favor. You see, whenever couples split up - especially after a long-term relationship - they need plenty of time to let go; to “wipe the slate clean”, if you will. And if one of them gets too involved with someone else too fast, they end up bringing the “baggage” of the old relationship into the new one. In short, it’s a recipe for disaster (for them, that is; for you, it’s nothing but a blessing).

3. She continues to stay in touch with you while she’s dating the other guy. There’s a lengthy explanation for why a girl does this after a breakup. And while it’s too lengthy to describe in this post (fully explained in How to Get Her Back for Good) you should consider it as the most favorable of the rebound relationship sings… and a situation that should be handled with extreme tact. Why tact? Because how you deal with this determines if you’ll get her back… and how fast.

Now there are several more subtle signs to look out for to confirm that this is a rebound. Nevertheless, those are the big red flags. And while they’re not pleasant (at least not the first two) take comfort in the fact that they work in your favor.

    What if you’ve slept with her after two weeks and she is dating another guy? Is this the ultimate favorable or ultimate slap in the face? I can’t not sleep with her…its that good. And i don’t hate her for breaking us up. I’ve made some profound changes in my psyche since this breakup. My intentions are solid again…I am in a much better place. But I still want to share my life with her at this moment.

    doc! I red your book and its awesome I must say! but one thing that gets me thinking about our ‘weird’ situation, when my girl broke up with me she met a guy and they were texting. but the twist is that the guy is miles miles away from her literally. they only communicate on Skype. can we consider it as a ‘date’? or if I’m right i do have a clear advantage here and we have a long history together and her longest as well almost 3 years! I’m putting NC in play here. i just want to know that if that guy can be a real treat? and doc she wants us to become friends, but on her status on her profile she’s saying not directly that she still loves me. its just weird. and we broke up while I’m on vacation for a month… and its shocking… I’m reading your book every time and i boost my confidence!! infact, I’m reading it now. I hope you can give an answer to my question!! :)

    I’m 16 and my girlfriend is 15. She was fine for the past week and a half and all of a sudden today she says we should break up because she has been thinking about her ex more often and today when she saw him she started crying (I guess it was a hard breakup) I tried to get her to change her mind but I just couldn’t get through to her. She says she just wants to break up just enough to get her life back to normal. I’m not sure If she really means that or if she’s saying it just to make me feel better. What should I do to get her back?

    to all the users who are still confused.Most girls do not come back after rebounds, a few could. My advice, if she or he is rebounding, and you truly have ‘hopes’ of getting her back, then just wait. Focus on this time to clean up you, go out with friends and ‘act’ like nothing happened..IF she truly loves you, then she’ll come back (sometimes not) and you have to answer this for yourself. “do i really want her back after this?”

    Me and my ex havs been broken up for 8 months. Due to my infidelity. She has slept with other guys but we still sleep together also. She says she wants me out of her life but still calls me and wonders who I am txting. Ive been trying to make things work because we have a child together and I know I made a big mistake and I love her. She is always saying one thing and doing another like it is a game. Is she trying to get back at me and then get rid of me? Or am I just the in between guy when she cant find anyone and eventually be gone?

    I’ve dated a girl for a little over a year. She broke up with me 2 times before now. I have always been able to get her back. Then the church I go to got involved and made us separate for two months with no contact. At the end of that she told me that it needed to be over, broke it off for a third time. This time I responded by saying I was sorry for the petty arguments and not being the man I should have been. When she said we needed to be done I just responded by saying ok. I haven’t spoken to her since. It’s been about a week and I’ve thought long and hard about her. I now know I don’t need her but I do want her. Do I implement no-contact from here or something different?

    What if its my wife doing this?we still live under the same roof as we have children and its a guy she works with.I’m trying to just be nice and not make a big deal because she says she doesn’t know what they are.I have pushed her away over the last 2 months and now I’ve realized how much i made her feel unloved.Ive decided not to react anymore and just be nice and calm.Is this the best route?I think its more revenge than anything on her part.
