    I was just wondering how you guys feel about "Rebound Relationships". Have you ever been in one, do you know of one that ever really worked out?

    my second serious guy relationship turned out to a "rebound relationship".

    he had just broken up, a few months earlier, with his long term live in lover. (i was new to the area and found this out after we parted ways).

    for about 6 weeks we had sensous, multipe orgasm, mind blowing sex. we were an item, caused tight smiles and behind hand wispers from many of the partrons of the bar he held court in 4 nights a week. i basked in his glory, attention & association and bedroom skills. icon_twisted.gif

    it was fantastic...until he moved on to someone else. i was there, apparently, just to ease him back into the dating pool. icon_sad.gif

    Ah I see, my ex and I broke up about 7 months ago back in March. You might remember my thread " I think I just got dumped" where my then BF came to me and wanted a two week break. Well after the breakup and a week later he pops up with a new BF, whom he swears he didn't know before the break up, not that it matters, I just don't see anything good coming from Rebound Relationships, to me they are just emotional band aids.

    I guess they can be like anything else in life, but I see them having a very short shelf life when the honeymoon haze wears off.

    I would want to date someone who just got out of a relationship. They need time to heal eevn if they were the dumper not just the dumpie. They normally don't last. IMO.

    i've been in them and had a few... they're fine as long as you both know there's an expiration date.

    I don't think most people go into them thinking there is an expiration date. I think when you both are in denial of giving yourself a chance to heal from your previous relationships, your also in denial of what probably brought the two of you together in the first place also.

    They usually don't last

    I always need some advil when the guy starts complaining about his Ex

    Can you believe what that asshole did?
    Would you put up with someone like that?
    He even wanted the dog for Christ sake
