I was DH’s rebound, and he was sort of mine too, I guess. 

He dated a girl for a couple of years and then the bitch cheated on him (with his brother, no less). My ex and I were on and off and had an extremely volatile relationship. I had just started getting over him when DH and I started dating, and he had only been broken up with his ex for a few weeks.

Oh well, worked out well for us! 🙂

Sometimes the rebound is the one! I’m the product of my mom marrying the rebound, and they’ve been happily married for 31 years. She had been dating this asshole for just over a year, she met my dad through her sister while she was with the guy. He dumped her a week before her 18th birthday (see, asshole.) and her sister decided to invite my dad to the birthday party. And they’ve been together ever since.

Me too, an almost immediate one but six years later I love him more now than I have before.

@CBWFlove:  sometimes we just get lucky I guess. I like to think I got out of the wrong relationship just in time to find the right one. My DH is actually the person that helped me move my stuff out of my old house (shared with my ex).

@CBWFlove:  i met my dh just days after ending a relationship of 8 years.  he was just ending his marriage of 11 years when we met.  so, yeah, we were both each other’s rebound i guess but we knew exactly what we were looking for in a mate and found it in each other.  in fact he proposed 3 months later.

ME TOO! I’ve known my FI since high school because we had mutual friends but we never really talked until like 2 weeks after I got out of a terrible relationship. And I mean terrible. I even almost told him thanks but no thanks since I had just gone through such a bad breakup. I’m so glad I didn’t!

So am I, I met my fiancee about a month after my daughters father and I officially broke up. My daughters father even asked me to marry him a few weeks after my fiancee proposed but by that time it was too late. I even questioned my decision at that point but I knew in my heart that my FI was the one for me. He’s even a better father figure and 100xs more involved in my daughters life than her own biological dad.

I met my husband while I was dating another guy. The guy I was dating was a douche and it wasnt going anywhere so I just let him go and got with my DH. Best decision I ever made!!!! 🙂

It feels like I could have wrote this. I got with DH one whole week after breaking up with my serious boyfriend of 6 years, whom I had been waiting for for 8 years. It was love at first sight, we were friends for 2 years before we finally came forward and decided to go out together, but as much as I was in love with him, it wasn’t right, right from the start. But I was so sure he was the one, I gave him everything for 6 years. And then I was done.

And I was friends with DH already at this point, and it was obvious he was interested in more and I was as well, but I told him from the get go that nothing serious could happen because I was on the rebound and it wasn’t fair to him. I tried to break it off because it wasn’t fair. He didn’t give up.

18 months later we were engaged, then married and now we have 2 beautiful children. Been married 4 years now and it is still the best decision I ever made. No regrets whatsoever.
