Over the weekend I ended my streak of not going out at night at about a month (not counting the weekend in Breck) and on my first night out I ended up with an easy SNL with a girl on the Rebound. In fact my new nickname should be Wilt Chamberlain, as I've recently been getting a lot of girls off the bounce. I picked up a girl 3 days off a break up at a bookstore a few weeks ago, I met another girl who was in the "seeing" stage which became the break up stage, which became me grabbing her off the glass like 1963 Bill Russell( Just a warning The esoteric OLD basketball analogies are strong in this article).
Ok so a few things I've noticed about girls on the rebound, that will help you unleash your inner Dwight Howard.
1. They are not looking for a Boyfriend right away. This should be a duh, but I'm consistently amazed by how little other guys (Even those teaching) seem to understand the female reltionship cycle. Thus any sort of overly deep Breakthrough Comfort Style game will be less effective with rebound girls. If you want to make a rebounder(Like Charles Oakley in 88) your Girlfriend, you're going to need to treat her like an FB for awhile until she starts to chase you for commitment. Once a rebounder ( Like Tim Duncan in crunchtime) is seeking commitment, you can be sure she's moved on to the "Looking for a relationship" part of the cycle.
2. Don't avoid the old relationship talk. Obviously you don't want to become a crying shoulder or EVER give her relationship advice( I made this mistake in Breck and blew a sure SNL) Instead (try to) sympathize and if I may invent a word Emotionalize( Maybe I didn't make it up, spellcheck seems to think it's a word too) What I mean by emotionalize is that you need to allow her to become emotional and if you can, increase that process. More Emotions = More Attraction/Comfort/Seduction. Emotional language and sharing similar sympathetic stories helps. Trying to be MR DHV(I like that term for try hard dogmatic PUAs) and talking about how you NEVER get dumped. Doesn't.
3. Don't be afraid to escalate. Most girls on the rebound want to bang out that next guy to get the grieving process moving forward. Like Dominique slamming back his own free-throw in 89'. A lot of the time earlier in my life I would miss all sorts of signals from girls in these kinds of situations. Girls are people too, as such they are responsible for their own emotions. If you escalate and she's uncomfortable, she will let you know. Or she will ask you if you can give her a ride home in the morning like the girl last night :)
Hope that helps you guys get out there and swoop up rebounds like Moses Malone in the 80s.
