We don’t think rebound relationships are a good idea. Here’s why!
Let’s face it, we have all been there and done that. Post a painful breakup, we have fallen for the wrong guy/girl and blamed it on rebound. Is rebounding a wise thing to do? Clearly, it’s not. Read on to find out why it doesn’t last.
It’s too soon:
Rebound relationships are your body’s way of reacting to the situation, that is, a break up. So when you jump from one relationship to another, it’s too soon to go the distance. It’s more spur-of-the-moment than carefully thought out and planned.
Lust, not love:
It’s the physical attraction that acts the catalyst in a rebound relationship. Between love and lust, it’s the former that lasts, while the latter withers away with time.
When you go for this kind of a relationship, you are seeking comfort. You want to take it slow as you have just had your heart broken and dreams shattered, so ‘being comfortable’ is more important than ‘being serious’.
Not mutually exclusive:
Most rebounds are a product of a drunken stupor or speed dating, where neither of the two is mutually exclusive to each other. You’re free to date/hang out with other people and even sleeping around is okay in most rebound affairs.
Finally, the one reason that makes this kind of a fling a total failure is the excess emotional baggage carried by one or both parties. Messy break-ups, divorces and heartbreaks are rather ugly and can not be forgotten very easily.
