So from reading a lot of the other threads it seems like girls, especially the dumpees, are the ones to get into rebound relationships right after a breakup. But what about guys who are also the dumpers? You can read my story called "ex-bf in long distance rebound relationship"...if you want to post there too it would be greatly appreciated!
Basically, my bf and I were together for 3.5 years. We broke up and started dating someone 3 days later. They are now in a relationship, but less than 2 months from when they started dating the rebound girl moved away for the summer.
From the dumpers point of view, it makes no sense at all (in my opinion). Especially when one of the reasons he gave was to be single and see what else is out there. I see his actions as being disrespectful to the relationship, or am i off here?
I guess I just want to see what people think of this new relationship. Why would a dumper get into a rebound relationship? On top of that, why a long distance one? It seems like people say that it could be love and not to count on the rebound relationship not working cuz what if they get married, but we are talking about 21 year olds here....If anyone reading this has been in a rebound relationship, do you get into it consciously knowing its probably a temporary fix? Also, from the rebound girl's point of view, why would she date a guy who just got out of a 3 and a half year relationship? From what I know, it seems like she was the one who went after him, but they barely knew each other before. I know I would never ever do that. It just seems desperate and needy and has no consideration for other people's feelings...Ugh, I hope this doesn't last long...
