    Is this likely a real thing, or just a rebound?

    A friend of mine ended her LTR, a month ago. Her relationship had been rocky for a while. We’ve known eachother for the last year, while I was broken up with by my girlfriend 8 months ago. Since then, I acknowledged that I liked her, but wasn’t rdy since I was not over my ex; and also because she was in a relationship. That said, this friend of mine had told mutual friends that she liked me too, whilst she was still in her relationship.
    1-2 weeks after she ended things, I let her know how I felt, not expecting any big change to occur. A week later she asked me out as friends, had a fun/romantic time, and kissed. We started hanging out more frequently. We don’t want a rebound thing, though she’s not rdy to jump into a new relationship, so I’ve expressed that I can wait for her to be rdy. A friend mentioned to her that she’s totally in a rebound, which has her concerned. We check-in about how she feels about what we’re doing, cause I want this to be a real thing eventually.
    Thoughts?

    I think you’re doing it right. Keep seeing her and take it slow.
