Cupid’s Advice:

Jumping into a new romance right after ending a long-term relationship can be considered a rebound.  Cupid has some questions you may want to ask yourself:

1. How much time has passed?: If you just broke up with someone and are already seeing someone new, you’re probably in a rebound relationship.  It’s important to realize that these flings usually aren’t permanent.

2. Do you still have feelings for your ex?: So you’ve started dating a new person, but everything they do reminds you of your ex.  If this is the case, you might consider taking some time alone to heal and move past the breakup.

3. Is the new romance serious?: After ending a serious relationship, it’s usually difficult to feel strongly for someone new right away.  So if you find that your feelings aren’t nearly as intense for your new partner, maybe you’re still on the rebound.
