So my boyfriend and I - ex-boyfriend and I, I guess I should say now - split up this weekend. Long story short, we split because he has some personal stuff he needs to work out and he doesn't want his issues to bring me down. Since we didn't split out of anger or because it wasn't working or anything like that, then, we're still very much in love, so this is really hard on us both.
However, since we split, I've been getting a fair amount of attention from this one bad-boy type guy who has a reputation for hooking up with a lot of girls. I think he's into me, and he's hot, and I'm lonely, and I want someone to ease the ache, and overall it would be incredibly easy for me to rebound with him.
So my question to you is:
Everyone always says rebounding isn't a good idea - but if I recognize that I'm still in love with my ex, that it would be a temporary fix, that it wouldn't solve any problems or make me feel any better in the long run, would rebounding really be all that bad an idea? Why or why not (voices of experience are welcome here)? It would ease the pain at least for a little while.
