One of my friends was talking to me about how now that me and my boyfriend are broken up, that I need to be careful about the next guy I date, because he will be the rebound guy. I've only heard about the rebound in passing or on TV shows and movies, but never paid much attention to it. So what I'm asking is if this is a real thing, and how to either prevent this, or avoid it all together.

A rebound is generally when you date someone else rather quickly after breaking up with someone else. So just take some time off and enjoy being single for a bit, until those feelings for the other person are close to gone. That way you are fully committed to the next.1
