My personal story is that my ex-GF (of six years)and I broke up just over a year ago. I've dated 4-5 girls since then, but haven't had sex or a meaningless fling (there's been some PG making out and some over-the-clothes touching that was a lot of fun, but nothing I'd consider a rebound or a meaningless fling).
I started seeing someone recently that might have the potential for something long-term, and thus this question popped in my head.
By the way, my answer would be no, that rebounds aren't necessary. But I'm a relationship kinda guy and I know not everyone will see it this way.

No, I don't really think rebounds are necessary.
I actually think having a rebound is pretty sad. It's something I'll always try to avoid. It's not good for you or the person you're involved with.
I'm not really into casual dating either, so I understand where you're coming from.
You've been single for over a year, I think plenty of time has gone by to see promise in this new relationship. Good luck! :-)1
