There is never much true love or passion in such a temporary relationship.Even if this rebound guy turns out to be a nice guy, there still won’t be much connection between them.Meanwhile, stay clear of doing anything stupid that could worsen your case.
This guy most probably would not be compatible with your girl and sooner or later, she would realize that it was just a big mistake she made.
The rebound relationship might have turned out to be a truly miserable experience for her.
But for our plan to work, make sure that you stay cool about it!
There might be instances when you see her with this new guy, but you should be completely cool about it.
He was severely emotionally abusive, manipulative and generally treated me like crap for the whole three years we were together. Everyone in my life eventually found out and got me to leave him. So, you were right to acknowledge that it wasn’t the “ex-factor” that made you angry. Unfortunately, this is NOT a normal situation and is in no way a run-of-the-mill case of “la la la my friend wants to date my ex boyfriend and now I’m annoyed! This girl is supposed to be YOUR friend and KNOWS that this asshat was ABUSIVE to her best friend. Under what circumstances is your friend even SPEAKING to this freak show, let alone dating him? She’s clearly being heavily manipulated, and is falling for it. Your ex is not the only one who is bad for you anymore. It’s hard to watch someone screw up their own life. All at once you want to knock some sense into her for being such an idiot, and punch her for dating your ex boyfriend. Through her actions, she's essentially saying that she has no self-worth, that she doesn't give a f*ck about you went through as an abuse survivor, and she cares more about this guy than she does about you. Honestly, this was likely the final nail in the coffin.
I’m now in a happy relationship with a wonderful guy and I have everything on track. She was one of the people who encouraged you to get away from him and now she’s going to play house? (Something you and she both know this dude is famous for). It’s a mixture of anger, pity, rejection and frustration. So, while the emotions may be running high, and you’re feeling a lot of feelings, I think you have to remove yourself entirely. She’s holding onto a part of your life that is still very painful for you. I’m sure this is not the first time this friend has done something shady or put a guy before your friendship.
She would need some time to get the rebound guy out of her mind and replace it with you.
When the Right Time comes, Act Once her rebound relationship has begun to go down under, it is time for you resume small conversations with her.
It is natural that she would be comparing you with this rebound guy and you would easily be the winner if that is the case.
This would flood in her mind doubts about breaking up the great relationship you guys had cherished.
Do not show that you are jealous or that you do not approve of this new guy she has found.
