" It's 3 mos later, and I'm still wondering how do I cope? so the person who wants to broke up via text doesn't want to see the person hurt or just can't take the pressure to talk things out? If they don't want to see you cry, they might text. If the rest of the relationship was text, than text works to break up.But you can't text intimate physical contact, making out, and memories made in person. I would agree that it sucks to be broken up with through text, but the reality of the matter is that there are no rules to breaking up. Yea that sucks and the person who does it is being selfish, but the reality is the two are not in a relationship anymore and there is no further obligation to do anything "correctly." I agree with You. I do not believe that anyone should get right into a relationship to forget about the previous one.Certainly there are cases where a fear of being without a partner, rather than genuine attraction and emotional connection, motivates someone to immediately enter into a new relationship.Those on the rebound may experience shame and consequently express anger and resentment toward their previous partner.A negative attachment with a old partner may interfere with the attachment to a new one, as well as put a current partner in the uncomfortable position of competing with the ghost of what remains of the past relationship and wondering if the new partner’s interest in, or excitement about, the new relationship is enough to provide fulfillment.In contrast, some potential partners on the rebound do not bring up the relationship that recently ended, nor do they expose any emotions surrounding the dissolution.Consequently, their emotional availability is questioned, as is their capacity to be devoted to a new partner or make good decisions in choosing one.
(For information about my books, please see my website: marylamia.com) References I've recently had the pleasure of being the victim of a rebound.A relationship of years together should not end by text. I recently had a break up now 4 months and I have had a difficult time of it and have dated but tell the guys I am not interested in getting involved just dating.I communicate to them " do you want to be a rebound person?If she healed it could of been a whole lot different. timing was off but didn't like the social media sneakiness and dishonesty she was posting. :-( I got a question for anyone, is breaking up by text message wrong?I understand she didn't want to hurt me but boy did it hurt me to broke up with me via text and not willing to meet up. When I met him, I didn't think I would ever consider marriage again. I have been finding the blog at to be very enlightening. my ex and I are somewhat a long distance like an hour and a half apart.
