These comforts are often difficult to quit cold turkey.Not saying single people don't get to enjoy these things, it's just not nearly as frequent or as meaningful as it is for couples, statistically speaking.
On the other hand, if their relationship has been going on for over a year, then you can safely assume that the relationship is serious for them and it’s probably not a rebound.
I have enough relationship experience to know that when you’re a legit, cool individual, you’re going to receive attention and re-engagement from lovers of the past.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s that they’re scared shitless of commitment or intimacy or whether they’re moping after their ex or creeping around behind your back having talks with them; they’re unavailable.
They’ve overestimated their capacity for a relationship and pushed down their feelings about their ex because they use you, albeit not always intentionally, to help you get them through this transition.
You are confused because everyone seems to be telling you it’s a rebound relationship while your instincts tell you that your ex has moved on.
It’s truly a gut wrenching feeling to think of your ex with someone else, especially if you are still in love with them and want to get them back.
This is just the reality when you’re consistently forward-moving and improving yourself as I always suggest.
This article is about turning a rebound relationship into something more serious.
The reality is that a lot of men and women aren’t on the same page with the people that we meet and hook up with.
Whether it’s a new person you’ve met or a lover from the past, chances are either you or him/her isn’t ready to get into a full-fledged relationship at this time.
Also it's better for their healing if they are able to end the rebound relationship on their own terms and choose to move forward as a single person rather than be thrown into that lifestyle.
