I said above that it's not a math equation.  It depends on many factors. 

Nevertheless, rebounds happen.  We all know they do.

Ladies and Gents, the OP asked for ways to politely tell her friends and acquaintances that she was ready to see someone new and have fun, and not to worry about her. Please don't let this dissolve into a discussion about people's personal opinions on when is 'too soon' to date or what rebound means.

I appreciate everyone has their POV, but please either move it to a new thread or PM each other.

And now, back to the subject in hand.
A possible response could be:

"It's not serious, we're having fun enjoying each others company. Besides, the ending of my rel@tionship with X was mutual and I've had time to reflect".


Edited for spelling

Here's what I say when someone questions my choices.

"If (bad thing) happens, then you are free to say I told you so.  You can even point and laugh.  But please allow me to make my own mistakes.  Thank you."

It works.  And I typically only have to say it once to any one person.

So do I! I'm nicking it!
Just because someone is offended that does not mean they are in the right.

What about something like, "Nobody can predict the future. Any relationship I start might eventually end. But, I'm happy now, and isn't that the important thing?"
