The Importance of Rebound Relationships After a Breakup

No, he’s not your boyfriend, he’s just your rebound relationship, that is, the person you started dating (or hooking up with) after your last breakup. It can be a person or several; a one night stand or extended fling; a new crush or an old love. The important thing about a good rebound relationship –that nail that the previous one tries to pull out– is not how long the bond lasts or how serious the bond is, but rather the speed and force with which it reaches you, like a tidal wave that picks you up, with heartbroken and adrift, to return you to the mainland.

Does one nail drive another nail? It’s time to rethink rebound relationships.

The rebound is a time-honored ritual after a breakup, as celebrities are experiencing even before summer begins. Kylie Jenner has started seeing Timothée Chalamet after her breakup with her boyfriend Travis Scott. Megan Thee Stallion appears to have a thing for Belgian soccer player Romelu Lukaku amid a rumored breakup with her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine. And Taylor Swift has just ended her idyllic romance with British bad boy Matty Healy after a month of hype and media coverage.. According to Us Weeklythe two “were having fun, but it was never anything serious.”

Jenner and Chalamet are such an unexpected mix that it almost seems that they are kidding us even though we have been able to see them the first photos together. More explicitly, Emily Ratajkowski joked about this situation on her Instagram with a photo of Eric André in bedafter breaking up with Pete Davidson and before he related her to Harry Styles after making it official their divorce by Sebastian Bear-McClard. The message was clear: she is my bachelorhood and I enjoy it when and with whom I want.

On the other hand, when the news of the break between Swift y Healyfans from all over the world seemed to breathe a sigh of relief. By the end of their month-long romance, public opinion had turned from subtly positive to uniformly negative. and there was no shortage of those who criticized the singer for going straight from a six-year relationship with actor Joe Alwyn into the arms of someone considered “troublesome” and therefore “undeserving”. On the Internet, some Swifties actively encouraged people not to attend concerts on the tour Eras until Taylor Swift and Matty Healy broke up.

“Taylor, this guy is going to give you scabies,” rapper Azealia Banks wrote on her Instagram stories days before the split. “It doesn’t even reach the sole of your shoes. You’ve worked so hard to get to where you are.”
