It’s hard to determine if your new guy is over a breakup or still on the rebound… unless you know the telltale clues.
• He compares you to her. Men who are stuck on a former flame will find ways to bring her up in conversation — even when they’re complimenting you. Be wary of such pseudopraise as “You’re so much sweeter than she is.” His words may feel flattering, but they indicate he’s still emotionally attached to his previous partner.
• He flaunts your relationship. Watch out for stealth moves that might make his ex jealous, like dragging you to a bar where her friends hang out or plastering pics of you two on Facebook. He could be parading you around to upset her, and that kind of bitterness proves he’s focused on her…not you.
• You could pass as her twin. Don’t fool yourself about his having a type. When a man hasn’t moved on, he’ll unconsciously seek someone who reminds him of his ex. It helps him cope when he’s not ready for someone new.
