    What do you think about rebound relationships? Does it help you move on from your ex?

    No. Just kind of makes you feel guilty, alone and horrible.

    See I disagree. I think people may judge you for saying it but rebound relationships do work for some. It can help you forget about a previous relationship and you could really start to fall for the new partner.

    I guess it depends on many factors. How good the prior relationship was, how long you were together and emotions wise. If it was a **** relationship and short lived then it'll be easy to move on.

    It also depends on why you broke up in the first place and if its fixable.

    Well I went to someone for a rebound and I was also somebodies rebound.Being somebody else's rebound was awful because I thought we could really go somewhere but I was just a way for him to get over his ex. I legit felt so unwanted and horrible. We still talk but I can tell he still really misses her. I actually really do love him but I guess we're just friends.

    Having a rebound was ok. But personally, I felt really guilty that I had been with someone else even though we had broken up. I don't talk to that guy anymore, I wouldn't want to either. I wouldn't do it again. Just break out the ice cream next time.

    Honestly, this may sound cynical but rebounds never work out. They're usually to keep someone occupied and busy.. It's missguided attempt to move on. When in reality all you want to do is crawl back to your ex. However, your pride stops you from doing that.

    Are there any signs he gave you that made you realise you're being used as a rebound?

    Haha I thought it would help me move on when I did it myself but nope, just made me miss him more. The sex with the rebound was rubbish!!

    I don't know, we talked and talked had sex then he kind of changed his attitude towards me? Then made it perfectly clear that nothing 'further' was ever going to happen between us. We're still friends now, we still talk everyday and we're quite close but it kind of breaks my heart. I really like him but I guess I just keep him occupied. His friends were his ex's friends so she took them with her so I guess I'm here for him to talk to?

    I think if you're out of a relationship you're gonna have a rebound whether it's a rebound sh*g or a rebound relationship. Personally, I'd want to get him out of my system before committing to someone else in a relationship that involves more than sex, I wouldn't want to be with someone and put them through that knowing I want to be with someone else or vice versa.

    Edit: Tbh, I guess I class it more of a friendship now rather than a rebound.
