Your foolproof guide to choosing the right rebound guy

So, your relationship ended. You know you need to heal and move on with your life, but that can mean different things to different people. Take some me-time or go on a vacation if you must, but if your medicine of choice is to find another man to erase the memories of your ex, here is a checklist to make sure you’re choosing wisely.

He understands your situation
A rebound relationship is only fun if both of you know what you’re getting into. If he looks at you as potential always-and-forever material, it’s just cruel for you to lead him on. While it’s obvious you shouldn’t start crying on your first date about your breakup, let him know upfront that you’re not ready for anything serious yet.

He’s willing to move fast
If you see that your new man seems to cherish the little things and wants to take it slow despite knowing you’re not in it for the long haul, he might be hoping against hope that you’ll form a connection. Pick a man who is looking for the same things as you, no strings attached.

You’re only attracted to him physically
You wouldn’t want to catch feelings when you’re trying to cleanse your palate after a breakup. Make sure you’re both tethered only because of how drawn you are to each other physically.

He is not like your ex, AT ALL
You know what won’t help you move on? Seeing your ex in everything that your new beau does. It could be as little as the way he holds his pen or as big as his choice of profession — if he does it like your ex, run for the hills.

You’re not that into him
Here’s a simple test. If you can look at your rebound guy and say “Under normal circumstances, I would never date him,” you’ve struck gold. Rebound relationships aren’t built to last, so parting ways will be easier when you already know you’ll tire of him eventually.

He’s not that into you
It works both ways. It is important to be on the same page. So, if you see that he isn’t too eager to text or call first, and doesn’t mind being blown off when you find something better to do, he’s not a keeper, which, in this case, is the whole point.

He hasn’t gotten over his ex
For reasons that should be obvious, it doesn’t get better than this. If you’re the rebound to your rebound, everybody wins.
