How can you tell the difference between rebound love and genuine love?
When a mate walks away from another (even if they are just
dating) it hurts a great deal, so the person that feels jilted
should take a few months to center themselves and to find out what
they have learned from the experience. If this person jumps within
days or weeks into another relationship it's too soon to be totally
serious over another person.
Most people feel lonely and bewildered over the experience and
they want comfort from the opposite sex. It isn't always about sex
either, but the loneliness of not having the person they were once
with around them all the time.
If this person is a good person then just take it slow and
perhaps it will still work out.
There is no real way to tell the difference between rebound
relationships or genuine love relationships. Only time tells the
nature of any relationship. All relationships are risk takers
because you are getting to know the character of the other person.
It just takes time. Crossing the street without looking is
dangerous. Rushing into a relationship without taking a good look
at the inner soul of a person (which takes time, at least a year),
is very dangerous.
