Hey guys, my ex and I broke up after two years of a lovely relationship about three months ago, because he has depression issues and he felt like he was beginning to treat me badly.

Yeah, I think he's just trying to buy some time. He definately needs to be alone for a while though. When he sees that you've moved on, he might panic and ask you back. He's not being very considerate by hanging on to you like this. He's selfishly hanging on because it suits him. I'd break contact entirely. Tell him you haven't got the energy for this. If he genuinely wants to fix things, you'll get a call in a few weeks, but even then, he sounds like a whiny pain in the arse, and there are so many awesome, fun guys who would appreciate your level-headedness. You sound way too good for him, and I think he knows that you are too. If you do decide to go back down that road with him, absolutely INSIST that he gets counselling and proves himself worthy of you before you make it official. Big changes would need to happen here.
I reckon you never completely move on until someone better comes along, so I'd just wait it out. Trust me, you don't need this emo.
