Dating a rebounder
A little more complicated than that, but he was I think I was a reboundee once...maybe just a place holder. I would rather hear "Let's be friends with benefits until my ex GF can move to town" than "We are just still BEST friends".
I would rather have enjoyed my time with him without getting my hopes up. I'm sure he isn't looking for a relationship right now. I'm sure you didn't mean it to be selfish....it's just how I viewed it. I'm still talking to him, I just told him I wouldn't go on a date with him right now.
People offered me all sorts of advice to talk me out of rebounding, but nobody was able to change my determined mind.
Still here are five things I learned, all of which I wish someone had told me beforehand: ◊♦◊ My wife and I had been separated for a week and a half when I went on my first “rebound” date.
It’s hard not to draw comparisons between yourself and your successor.
Even if you’re the one who left, you now observe how happy your ex looks with their new partner, and you wonder why you weren’t able to inspire that same happiness.

Jumping into a new relationship too quickly after a break-up is called “rebounding.” It’s called this because it’s a period where you are vulnerable and inviting attention on yourself from people who have their own agendas, just as an NBA player becomes vulnerable immediately after retrieving a missed shot.
