In case you wonder if you are being used as the rebound in your latest relationship, here are four ways you can check and see if you are.

This list is compiled courtesy of She Knows and goes like this:

  1. They talk about their ex a lot.  Whether it's good or bad things, if they keep bringing up their ex without you asking, it means they're still sorting through their feelings and not totally over the breakup.
  2. They're still in touch with their ex.  It's worse if they're trying to do the "just friends" thing.  Sure, some people stay friends after breaking up, but it usually takes time to get there, so being in touch right after a relationship ends can be a red flag.
  3. They're over-eager.  If they're super eager to jump into a serious relationship with you right after a breakup, it might be their way of moving on without dealing with any of the feelings or unanswered questions from the last relationship.
  4. They're only into sex.  People sometimes go a little nuts after getting out of a long-term relationship, and just focus on having sex, lots of it.  Especially if someone cheated on them.

The article was directed towards women, but men can also use these four things to see if their woman is on the rebound also.
