I'm at the juncture where I'd sometimes still think of my ex and might cry thinking of him whenever Iisten to emotional songs. Sometimes I'd imagine he wants me back but I would only be 50-50 in taking him back.
Anyway, what makes it a little complicated is I recently met someone else who's interested and he's quite similar to my ex (both love children, both love animals, both were teachers at some point in their lives and both cook too).
So my question is, if all goes well, should I give this new guy a chance, or should I wait til I fully recover from my last break-up?

I voted to give the new guy a chance, but only because I'm somewhat privy to past details of your situation. I don't remember how long you two were together and have been apart, so maybe some healing time could be in order here. You decide - they say the longer the couple are together (also frequency/depth of contact kind of matter), the more time is needed to heal. I don't think you'll ever forget an ex- like that, memories being what they are, but check to see if you just want to replace a certain feeling or not.
I don't think its unnatural to find guys similar to your ex-, especially since there wasn't a breakup involving animosity. Maybe you just like guys who like children, animals, and can teach & cook - especially if you struggle with some of these then they can counterbalance your skillset nicely.0
