Can a rebound relationship last

The problem with rebound relationships

The great problem with rebound relationships is that they depend on random selection of a partner instead of looking for someone who really matches your love map.

Because a rebound relationship is usually sought to help a person get over the one he likes the choice made in most cases is anything but suitable for the person. If you are seeking a rebound the first person who will give you attention, care or shows interest might quality as a potential partner.

Under the pressure of wanting to escape from the pain we tend to sacrifice many of the items in our love maps. Yes we would still be with someone who has certain things that we like but on the other hand we will sacrifice so many things that we also wanted. See also The secret to attracting love

In short a rebound relationship is very close to a random selection where you select any partner just to run away from your pain.

Can a rebound relationship last?

There are two cases in which a rebound relationship can last. The first is that you get really lucky that the person you picked ,almost randomly, turns out to be a perfect match for your love map.

Usually this doesn't happen and the possibility that it happens is too low. The problem with rebounds is that the person you get into a relationship with is usually a person that you knew earlier. This usually means that you already know that this person doesn't really match your criteria. See why a rebound relationship can't really help you recover.

The second case is where you try to act like you are happy and deny the fact that this person can't really fill the space. Many people chose that option and even manage to deceive themselves for sometime but they always end up feeling bad. See also love addiction explained

When your subconscious mind realizes you are with a person you don't really like it will send you bad emotions in order to motivate you to do the right thing.

Your subconscious mind might let you miss your old relationship partner even more just because it wants you to break up with the person you don't really like, See why we miss our exes when we meet new people.

In such a case your subconscious mind doesn't want you to get back to the one you broke up with but it just wants you to give it hope by breaking up with the one you don't really like.
