Breakups are hard, that’s for sure. The rebounds that follow can be even more of a mess. If you’re in a relationship and suspect that they are not completely interested in a meaningful relationship with you, it may be because you’re a rebound to them. Once you have these doubts, it can be difficult to shake the feeling. They can wreak havoc on your self-esteem. You deserve much better than to be someone’s second choice. If these signs sound familiar to you, take heed, before you get hurt. Unfortunately, your partner may not even realize what they’re doing to you.
