Cupid's Pulse Article: Reggie Bush’s New GF: A Kim Replacement?Cupid's Pulse Article: Reggie Bush’s New GF: A Kim Replacement?

NFL player Reggie Bush may have recently broken things off with Kim Kardashian, but he didn’t spend much time mourning.  Bush has recently been spotted in New Orleans with Maxim model and singer Mayra Veronica, a Cuban beauty reminiscent of Kardashian.  “Mayra doesn’t want to be Kim’s replacement.  She wants to make sure there’s a special place in [Reggie’s] heart just for her,” said an insider, according to RadarOnline.  Bush and Veronica’s relationship started as a summer fling, and the relationship has only grown since then.  Though Veronica has been busy promoting her new single, “If You Wanna Fly,” she made sure to clear her schedule when Bush was in California.  Those close to the couple say, “They really can’t wait to see each other.  They just love spending time together.”

How can you avoid replacing your ex with the same type of guy?

Cupid’s Advice:

Kim Kardashian has been accused of chasing after the same type of beau, and now her ex Reggie Bush is doing the same thing.  It can be hard to branch out, but there’s a reason you’re single and looking – because your past relationships haven’t worked out.  Here are a few tips to help you change things up:

1. Stop, drop and think: It happens.  You’re at a bar and there’s a guy across the room that you can picture yourself dating.  But before you pursue the attraction any further, be sure to take a quick inventory of the guy.  If you can tell he’s no different than your exes, even from first glance, then forget it.

2. Look at yourself: While you play a large part in picking your beaus, certain types of men flock to you for a reason.  If you continually attract a certain type of guy, try making small changes to your look or the way you act.  You may be able to attract Mr. Right.

3. Walk away: When you know a guy is no good for you, don’t stick around.  There’s no reason to waste your time in a relationship that will only end in disappointment.  Be sure to listen to the warning bells going off in your head.
