Ever heard of Rebound Relationships?
Have you ever experienced falling for someone you like, only to find out in the end that he/she just turned to you in order to get over his/her previous relationship easily? A 'rebound relationship' is one in which a person becomes overly quick to commit to a new partner after having experienced an upsetting break up.
A rebound relationship tends to have a negative character. This is found as an example on this article:http://www.divorceinfo.com/reboundrelationships.htm It happens usually on those people, both man and woman who is still going through the period of coping from the pain of an ex lover and decides to involve themselves right away to someone new in order to conceal the strong emotions of anguish and heartache.
A rebounder will not necessarily know they are using you. As the rebound person, you need to be the stronger person. Be in control of the whole situation, and be straightforward and honest with your rebounder. Most importantly, if you want it to succeed, never pressure that person. Show them how strong you are and how serious you are about not wanting to be a rebound. If they see it from your perspective, they may end up thinking twice before hurting you.

When dealing with this type of relationship, we have to be cautious at the same time, most especially if the person who is involved just got out of a serious relationship. Obviously, it would not be easy for both sides. However, when the right time comes, we might find the right person meant truly for us. Everything else is worth the wait if we all know how to take it easy and let the pain fades away when the right time comes.
