Are you the rebound chick? His plan B? The plan that he intends to use if his first plan fails. This is the case when a man needs to mask his pain and hurt from a previous relationship. I find there are a lot of women willing to play this Russian roulette with a man because they refuse to see the forest for the trees.
A rebounding man has a lot of emotional issues not dealt with, such as; he doesn’t want to be alone, he doesn’t want to feel that crush from his failed relationship, so his true intent is to fill a void to mask how he really feels. The new relationship is meant to keep him from having to deal with his feelings about his recent breakup. Rebound relationships are never healthy; in fact they’re superficial because you’re only being used by the man to ride through his short period of delusion.
Men who have breakups and then immediately involve themselves with someone else seem to feel the need to prove to themselves they are worthy of love and affection. They may miss the comfort and affection of the regular relationship. But whatever the reason, it is a selfish reason, one that is based on serving the self-esteem and satisfying the feeling of personal worth.
I’ve decided to dedicate this show to every single one of my sistahs on the rebound. Allow me to “school you” concerning the truth.
