Have you ever questioned whether or not your partner has completely moved on from his ex-girlfriend? If he does anything to cause you to have even the smallest doubt about the relationship, you may be unwittingly playing the part of the rebound. Here are 4 signs that he is using you to get over his ex-girlfriend.
1. He doesn't seem to make any plans for your future: When your man doesn't seem to make any plans for your future, then it's a sign that he may be using you to get over his ex-girlfriend. A man who truly loves you is supposed to have made plans for your future. Could it be a hangout or even a marriage?
At least, he should have one or two plans with you in the future. But when you see a man who isn't even concerned with doing anything pertaining to your future, then it's quite evident that he may be using you to get over his ex-girlfriend. Photo Credit: iStock
Most times, when you ask him if he has any plans for the future, his excuse might be "let's be worried about now, and not the future." Now, if you happen to hear this kind of excuse, just know that your man may not even value you. He may just want to use you to get over his ex-girlfriend.
2. He compares you both a lot: A man who compares you and his ex-girlfriend a lot is implying that he is using you to get over his ex-girlfriend. Even if he doesn't compare you both frequently but always talks about his ex-girlfriend all the time, then you should be aware of the fact that he may be using you to get over his ex-girlfriend.
Who knows if you're in this kind of situation? And the annoying part is that he doesn't even wish to know how it's affecting your feelings. All he cares about is just him and himself alone. Photo Credit: iStock
Have you had an experience where each time you prepare something for him, he's always like, "You see, my ex-girlfriend did the same thing once" or, "My ex-girlfriend did it this way..."? And even if you try hard to avoid such occurrences, do they still keep happening?
If yes, then you should know that the man may be using you to get over his ex-girlfriend. Also, it's freaking creepy when every little thing reminds him of his ex-girlfriend.
3. His friends are surprised that he's dating: One of the signs that your man may be using you to get over his ex-girlfriend is when his friends are surprised that he's dating. Observing this reaction from his friends should put you in a mood of thought, because if your man is truly dating you, his friends would definitely have an idea about that. Photo Credit: iStock
In fact, even before he starts dating you, his close friends might have already gotten a clue about it. So, come to think of it, when his friends are surprised that he is dating. Can you now see that he may be trying to use you and get over his ex-girlfriend?
Also, have you met with your man's friends and they are surprised that he's dating you? If yes, then your man may be using you to get over his ex-girlfriend.
When your man's friends are like, "Wow, I can't believe he is already dating" or, "it's good that he found you, his ex-girlfriend really did a number on him," then you should have a rethink. It's clearly a pure sign that your man may be using you to get over his ex-girlfriend. Photo Credit: iStock
And also, if his friends are questioning the relationship, then there's something wrong somewhere.
4. The relationship is no longer romantic: If the relationship is no longer romantic as usual, then it's a sign that your man may be using you to get over his ex-girlfriend. Love at first sight is always good when both partners love each other.
But when you're just in a 3-month relationship or less, and the relationship does not longer feel romantic, then it's quite obvious that your man may be using you to get over his ex-girlfriend. Come to think about it. Is the relationship more physical than emotional?
If yes, then it's a clear sign that your man may be using you to get over his ex-girlfriend.
Also, who knows if your man might go as far as kneeling down to propose to you, just as illustrated in the image below, but then he doesn't even prove to you that he loves you? He might propose to you to blow your mind, but what he's keen to do is what he may definitely do. Photo Credit: Penciled Celebrities
Don't deceive yourself thinking that when a man proposes to you, that he loves you. No! Most of the time, he does it to make his ex-girlfriend feel bad so that she can come to him. You're getting the point here, right?
