I don’t think it’s a good idea to go actively looking for a rebound relationship. When people jump from one relationship to another, they never take the time to evaluate the last relationship. Feelings from the last relationship tend to be carried over to the next, creating an unhealthy cycle that’s hard to break.

Also, rebounds never work out for either party. If you’re with someone just because you’re lonely, you won’t ever really invest your feelings and emotions into the relationship. You will end up hurting them because eventually you will want to find someone else to date. I suggest you take this time to focus on yourself. Do the things you couldn’t do in your relationship that you always wanted to do. Hang out with your friends and family more. Make progress in work. Travel. The possibilities are endless.

If you’re concentrating on the other aspects of your life, you’ll be able to think clearly and be more likely to meet someone when you’re really ready for a real relationship.
