The other night I was talking to Lydia about my previous post, “To be the rebound, or not to be“. She gave two good reasons why sometimes you might want to wait and not be the rebound guy.
- Some girls do have to go through the rebound guy before being “normal” again.
- There’s a chance that the girl might get back together with her ex. If you’ve already stuck your neck out, there’s no place for you to retreat to. It’s already out there. And that’s just really awkward. Even worse is if you do become the rebound guy, and she goes back to him after you. Ouch.
I’ve been the rebound guy once and the whole thing fizzled out pretty fast. Luckily for me, I didn’t feel too much for her so I wasn’t cut deep. And the fooling around was good while it lasted.
Live and learn, right?
