Am I a rebound? watch

    The guy I have been dating for nearly two months has come out of a long term relationship not too long ago (around 3/4 months). They were together for 5 years and I believe they broke up because they wanted different things. When I asked him about it he said he was upset about it for a month but was now ready to see what else was out there. When I went to his house there was a photo of her still in his room and when I questioned it he said that it had been there for so long that he had forgotten about it and moved it immediately.

    When we are together (or even when we are apart) I have never been made to feel like a rebound but I can't shift this nagging thought I've only had since this morning. We are starting to talk about commitment and getting into a relationship which causes me major anxiety anyway so I am unsure if it is just anxiety or if there is something else going on

    Does he still have her number? Does he interact with her?

    It's tricky to say but I get why you'd think that given the length of the relationship

    Also, do you look or act like that person in anyway? Similar interests etc.

    Not that I know of no. I know he saw her recently (she works on public transport and he needed to get home so it was kind of inevitable)

    I don't know the person but we don't look similar just the same hair colour and a similar height

    I just asked why they ended and he said that she wanted more of a commitment than he was willing to give her so he eventually fell out of love
