Rebound dating

Source: Shutter Stock It's fine to bring up your ex every once in a while (and by that I mean not a lot at all), but if your BF brings up his ex constantly, that's not a good sign.Most people being used as a distraction eventually realizes that the one on the rebound isn’t really ready/emotionally available for a relationship and often end the rebound relationship.It’s important to understand that not every new relationship after a break-up is always necessarily a “rebound” relationship.This is true whether one is the dumped or the dumpee.For people who have an especially hard time moving on after a breakup, it serves as a distraction from moping, obsessing, and even stalking an ex.
