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.
