What's With All This Anti-Rebound Relationship Bunk?!
By Tigress Luv
Whoever said rebound relationships are bad, ought to have their head
Here are five GREAT
things about rebound relationships (and why you ought to get in one!)
1) Rebound relationships save face. Yours.
Rebounds are a great
way to repair a damaged ego and to regain the loss of self-esteem that
often results from the rejection of someone we loved. A shattered ego
is an all too familiar after-effect left behind from a breakup, and
finding someone who thinks you are the cat's meow can make a huge
difference in mending your broken spirit.
relationships have a way of allowing you to see just how
'non-important' your ex really was.
What happens is that
when someone breaks up with us we tend to subconsciously give them more
'heart-power'. After all, anyone who can so turn your entire world
upside down and inside out must have an upper or supreme power over us,
right? Wrong! Ironically, we tend to build our exes up, instead of tear
them down, when they reject us. But a rebound relationship with a GREAT
new person can show you exactly what a putz your ex really was. A new
hottie is exactly what you need to be able to see your ex for the real
person - flaws and all - that they really are, and not the god or
goddess that your broken, rejected heart has made them out to be.
relationships get us 'out of our cocoon'.
Of course, there is
nothing more depressing than moping around your home, box of tissue in
one hand, quart of ice cream in the other, grieving about our loss and
tenderly patting our heart on its broken little back, hoping to never
see daylight again. We keep the curtains tightly drawn, the lights
turned off, and cry over sad, sad movies. Well, hey YOU... it's time to
get your arse outta there and start living again. (You can
bet your sweet buns your ex is!) Rebound relationships come in real
handy for this purpose. Let somebody who thinks you are really someone
worth dating take you out on the town and away from your self-pitying,
relationships quite frequently turn into the greatest romance you'll
Rebounds can and do often times bloom into great and long-lasting
romances. Mine is going on six-years now! Woo Hoo!
relationships can often help you reunite with your ex.
Even though they
dumped you doesn't necessarily mean that they don't want you and that
somebody else can have you! Oh, NO! Once they see you with that hot new
guy or gal, or once they hear that you are dating again, and not at
home whining over the loss of them, they will - most definitely - want
you back! Forced jealousy does have its advantages, you betcha!
