How long does a rebound relationship usually last?

A month ago, the girl I like broke up with her boyfriend of 3 years. A month later and she is already dating another guy. If this is a rebound relationship, how long will it last?


Have an opinion?

  • my rebound relationship lasted about 4 months. I got out of a 2 year relationship.

  • Probably not very long. Rebounds are called rebounds for a reason. It's not simply because people find someone new. The reason is because they find someone who they feel can keep them from falling apart. They won't heal and the new relationship is likely to strain because of it.

    It takes HALF of the time of the entire relationship to fully recover. HALF! That's a year and a half for this particular girl!

    I wouldn't go telling her that, though. You might put yourself in a really bad position.
