*Based off of Basketball: Someone(1) couldn't score, so someone else(2) picked up the rebound(3) to give it a try.
(1): The person doing the dumping.
(2): The person picking up the dumpee.
(3): The person who just got dumped.
Boy 2: "Yeah, she just got dumped by her boyfriend. So I picked up the rebound."
note: rebounds are suppose to be atleast a bit better in some way to help keep your mind off your ex better.
Girl2- no, he's just my rebound.
