Rebound Relationships Not Getting a Bad Rep Anymore?

A study from Queen’s College and the University of Illinois has found that rebound relationships may not be as negative as most perceive. In their study they found that individuals who quickly began a new relationship after a failed one felt a better sense of self-confidence, desirability and resolution over their ex-partner. These new relationships also gave a better sense of psychological and relational health to the rebounding daters in this study.

Overall, this study found that rebound relationships may have more positive attributes than originally believed. However, these benefits have only been measured in the short-term run. Long-term effects of rebound relationships may differ from couple to couple.
