It’s got to be a man thing. And please don’t think I am man bashing, but why is it that men will leave a relationship and before the previous relationship is barely over, they are setting up the next one? I say it’s a man thing because I’ve observed this with a few of my brothers. There was a time when people left a relationship and got into another one immediately, people would call that being on the rebound.
Here is why it’s dangerous to get involved with someone like that: first, you have to wait and see if the previous relationship is really over. Then I think the one moving on should take time and heal and recover from the previous relationship before jumping into another one.
It’s unfair to use another person to get over someone you were in love with or were seeing. I would question whether that man was really sincere. Now if a month or so from now, if that person reached out to me, I might believe they were really interested, but sadly most men just move on to the next conquest and that makes me question if that person was sincerely interested in me.
I say this is a man thing because most of the time a woman will turn to her friends and mourn the ending or her relationship. I’m sure there are some who would move on quickly, but for the most part women take time to get over their pain.
It’s sad that we have moved away from being on the rebound, but I think we need to go back to that mindset. What do you think?

I agree with you , it’s a man thing. Worse is when a man has been with a woman for years and won’t commit to marriage they break up and three months later he is getting married to somebody else .
So true Ivonne!
