Your ex broke up with you and left you heartbroken.And while you are still trying to understand what happened and pick up the shattered pieces of your life, your ex has started another relationship. Your ex seems happy and their new relationship seems to be going perfectly.She thinks perhaps it’s because she is not as close to Garry as she was with you.
This is the reason why most of the rebound relationships seem to move so fast. She knew she wanted to breakup with you but she didn’t expect to be so much miserable after the breakup.Because a rebound relationship is an attempt to reach the level of intimacy that only long-term relationships have. She has an old friend Garry who comforts her, she finds herself attracted to him.After a breakup, that intimacy is gone in a matter of few days and you are left feeling empty. It gives you a chance to feel that level of intimacy again.It gives you hope to fill that empty feeling inside you.She feels that perhaps this guy can make all her pain and the emptiness go away. Whenever she is with him, her mind is not thinking about the breakup and you. But still whenever she is alone, the pain comes back.
She can’t let go of this feeling of emptiness even though she is a new relationship.
Being intimately close to someone gives us a feeling of security and a boost to our self-esteem.
It’s the kind of intimacy that is built with time and effort that a relationship requires.
She feels a little better when she is with Garry, but she can’t shake the feeling that this relationship is not giving her the peace that she expected.
At this point, most people realize that this new relationship will not bring them the peace and happiness they were hoping it would. She thinks that the new relationship, despite not being what she expected, is still giving her some level of comfort.
Even though, she usually waits three months before sleeping with someone she is dating, she makes an exception in Garry’s case; simply because she thinks that sleeping with him will make her forget about you. Even though the sex is great, she is still not at peace with herself.
