A rebound is someone who you date/go out with to keep yourself busy and you use him/her to keep your mind off your ex who you still have feelings for.

note: rebounds are suppose to be atleast a bit better in some way to help keep your mind off your ex better.

second best, just some person you use to get over the person you just broke up with. they'll never be enough but they can be an okay distraction.
she doesn't matter, she's just a rebound
