Shattered Romantic Relationships – Rebound The Intelligent Way

By Ella McDonald

How many times have you seen one of your close friends break up with a long-term significant other to discover, the very next week, somebody that was obviously all wrong for them? It’s the most common consequences of the end of relationships: rebound dating.

The thinking behind rebound human relationships may be so ingrained in to the way we think about dating that it just looks natural to look for one after a separation. There’s something to be said for getting “back in the saddle,” choosing a companion when your opinion is clouded typically does more damage than good all round. If you want to get over your ex fast, there are better ways to do it.

Band-Aid relationships: rebound mentality The first step to keeping oneself from doing one thing you’ll regret is to take an honest look at what you’re feeling and understand how those emotions can lead you places you’d rather not go. More often than not we just miss the companionship and look for someone to fill the gap in our lifestyle and distract us from the point that our heart’s just been ruined. Therefore, make a point of finding a sociable time-filler that doesn’t involve romance.

Maintain your principles: The best thing you can do to avoid getting involved with someone who’s all wrong for you personally is stick to your standards. In fact, do not delay- raise them a little just to add a basic safety buffer. If the particular person you’re contemplating dating is less kind, less bright, less anything that you’d commonly desire, stay away. The people don’t make for great romances, rebound or otherwise.

Beware of the handiest man or woman: If we look for somebody to rebound with, we need someone quickly. We don’t have time to “waste” looking for someone we really click with, so we tend to latch on to someone we know already and have at least some rapport with. It might be a close friend, a co-worker, even somebody that works at the supermarket down the street. If you find yourself falling for someone you’ve never been at all fascinated by previously, stop and think about what’s truly going on here.

Just take a chance by yourself: As an alternative to filling your time with go-nowhere dates, get out to make some new acquaintances (that’s “friends,” not “partners.” There’s a difference.) Get involved with things you’ve always wanted to do but by no means had time for. Whatever you do, don’t sit about pining on your ex or scouring the bookstore shelves for self-help guides.

Be gentle with yourself: Even if your not sobbing into your bed sheets every night, the end of a partnership will naturally have you feeling a little bummed out and low on energy. Take that into account and try not to start any major assignments for a few weeks. On the other hand, give yourself a break to some time out to do something you love.

Of course, not every rebound relationship ends up a disaster. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a fun fling. If you do decide to become involved with another person after a split, though, make sure you’ve taken a little off by yourself and you’re not bringing down your requirements. Basically we cannot always prevent broken human relationships: rebound dates gone wrong are easy to steer clear of.
