Rebound relationship is the one that begins shortly following the break up of a significant romantic relationship. The rebound girl/guy is the one you get into a relationship with, while you're still on the rebound (period). So have you ever been in one? Were you the rebound girl/guy or were you the one who dated while on the rebound? How did it go? opcorn: Spoiler I went out with a guy who recently broke up with his girlfriend. The ex-gf was still a bit attached to him. They've been together for years. I can see that he also felt guilty whenever he hears she was still miserable while he has (supposedly) moved on, being with a new girl (me). Apart from that, it was a good relationship at first. But after a few months I can still feel his emotional baggage from the previous relationship and we broke up. I wasn't surprised when soon after that, they got together again but this time the ex-gf-turned-now-gf was wondering if she's the rebound girl now (and he had to assure her, she wasn't). :hah: Let's just say both of them was still not over the whole bizarre love triangle even after a year when I had met someone else. When they heard I was going to get married, they called me to talk about the past hoping to cure both of them or their paranoiac feelings. I told them they're a perfect match and just forget about me. My husband (then, my fiancé) had to call them and threaten to file harassment charges before they stopped calling.
