Dating someone just out of a relationship
I like that you're having fun with him, and he seems like a considerate, caring guy to date.And I like that he was clear about having feelings for you.When the emotional attachment in a previous relationship is severed, one may look for someone else to attach to and ease his emotional pain, says Nathan Feiles, a psychotherapist and author of “Are Rebound Relationships Doomed” on the "Psych Central" website.Problems can arise if you are in a rebound relationship.You may think no one has ever made you feel like this and you can’t help but be amazed at the chemistry, or electricity between you and this new love. But sadly those involved don’t take the time to get to know each other before jumping into something serious.
Even if he insists he's over her, if their relationship only ended a few weeks ago, he's probably not.

If he's talking about her, that means he's thinking about her...
He cancels plans, he goes MIA for days at a time, he acts distant.
At the root of it, the same sense of insecurity that made the guy obsessed with finding out if you like him is now scaring him into thinking that you’re going to “take his freedom away.” Generally speaking, most guys have a fear of being “trapped” in a relationship, but in this particular scenario you’re dealing with a guy who’s actions are especially dictated by avoiding unpleasant situations as a primary motivator.
