Philly Dating Service | 8 Signs You’re the Rebound Guy

dating in philly

There’s nothing worse than being someone’s rebound. Everyone is someone’s rebound at one point or another. Do you think it’s your turn? If your gut is telling you that something isn’t quite right, follow your instinct. You don’t want to be her rebound guy when you’re looking for the real deal.

We’ve all been in a relationship that destroyed our hearts and left us feeling like there was nothing left in life. Although the pain dulls and fades away, it takes time and healing to get over it completely.

But what do many people do when they feel the pain and despair of a breakup? They jump into the first relationship that comes their way. We completely understand why. After all, no one wants to feel the pain of a heartbreak, and no one wants to be alone. But instead of healing their broken heart, they use someone as a crutch. If you feel like you’re the one being used, let our Bryn Mawr dating service show you signs you’re the new rebound guy.

  1. You’re together, but something’s missing.

 

Some people say men are not intuitive, but that’s not true. Everyone has intuition, you just need to pay attention to your feelings. If you feel that although you’re spending time together something isn’t quite right, don’t second-guess your gut feeling. Your intuition is always spot-on.

  1. Things are moving too fast.

 

She already told you she loves you, holding your hand, and even talking about moving in together… But wait! You just met two weeks ago. You really like her, but aren’t things moving a little too fast? This is a major red flag she’s rebounding.

  1. When she talks about her ex, she gets angry.

 

It’s normal to talk about exes in conversation. But anger and resentment are key indicators someone’s not over their ex. If her face turns red every time she talks about him, that’s because she’s not really over him yet.

  1. The sex is abundant.

 

This is a clear indication you’re in a rebound relationship. She is trying to cover up the pain, and the best way to do this is by having sex with you. She also wants to feel a connection any way she can and is using sex as the quickest tool to do it.

  1. She focuses on making him jealous.

 

Does she take selfies with you or take pictures of your dates together just so she can make him jealous? If she does things intentionally just to get a rise out of her ex, that’s because she’s not really over him.

  1. She was freshly single before she met you.

 

If you when you ask about her dating history she mentions she just got out of a relationship, then chances are high that you’re the rebound guy. If the relationship is fresh, maybe a couple weeks or just a month, then you’re the rebound guy. She hasn’t given herself enough time to process her feelings and emotions.

  1. She checks him out on social media.

 

Out of the corner of your eye, you see her checking out her ex’s social media page. Trust us, she didn’t just get to his page by accident. She was creeping on his page because she wants to see what he’s doing. In other words, she’s not really over him.

  1. You have nothing in common.

 

Besides all the sex you’re having, you have nothing in common. You guys don’t really have any meaningful conversations. Sex is great, but it’s not the only thing required to keep a relationship alive. You need commonalities; otherwise, this relationship will never work.

So the big question is, are you the new rebound guy? If so, don’t worry, everyone has been a rebound at one point. Of course, you don’t want to remain her rebound guy, so end it now and find someone who is fit and ready to date. If you continue in this rebound relationship, you’re going to end up heartbroken.
