Rebound Relationships – Step AWAY from the man drugs.
After a breakup, have you ever had a well-meaning friend say something like: “You should just be single for awhile”? Have you ever dated a rebound?
When all you want is to either get back with your ex or to have a relationship with someone new, those words grate like nails on a chalkboard. It can feel like the ONLY thing that you want is to fill the void.
