By Laura Seaman

It looks like Naya Rivera has a new boyfriend! She was seen with actor Ryan Dorsey on a trip to Los Cabos, Mexico. Rivera was showing off her bikini body as her man got a photo of her by the pool. The couple also enjoyed a nice horseback ride on the coast and took a few more photos together. All of this is after Rivera’s former fiancé, Big Sean, called off their engagement in April only six months after proposing. Big Sean’s rep told that “Sean wished Naya nothing but the best and it is still his hope that they can continue to work through their issue privately.”

How do you know that your new relationship isn’t just a rebound?

Cupid’s Advice:

It can be hard to get over heartbreak and truly open your heart up to another partner. When you do find another relationship, how can you know that you’ve truly moved on and haven’t just started dating this person as a rebound? Cupid has some advice for you.

1. Date them because you like them, not because you want to date. This is a common problem when you start to date again. You need to ask yourself if you truly like this person or if you just like having them around as a partner to fill the hole your last partner left. If you can’t honestly answer that question correctly, maybe you shouldn’t keep the relationship going.

2. Ask yourself if you could be happy without them. As important as it is to be happy with your new partner, you need to ask yourself if you could be happy as a single person. If not, maybe you need to learn how to be away from a relationship before taking your new one too far.

3. Think about why you’re dating them. This might seem like the obvious way to go, but sometimes the answer to this question isn’t very clear. Are you really dating them just to show off how much you’ve moved on? Or to get back at your ex? These are reasons showing that you clearly haven’t moved on, and if your answer to that important ‘why’ question isn’t “because I really like my partner,” then yes, this is a rebound relationship.
