My boyfriend and I had a very intense relationship, and he broke up with me last week. I was extremely hurt, but the heartlessness about the way he did it made me realize he was never the right person for me. I am bouncing back from this breakup pretty quickly, as I am somewhat relieved it is over. I do not plan on dating super soon, I need time to heal. But there is someone that I do kind of have in mind for the future.
This guy I used to work with messages me on facebook asking me out last winter, but because I was with my boyfriend I said no. I always told myself if I was single again, I would reach out to him to see if he was seeing anyone, because he seems like an interesting person.
I am afraid the longer I wait, the more likely it is that he will be with someone (because it was 7 months ago that he initially asked me out...). How long is a normal amount of time to stay single before dating again?

Honestly your moving on graciously. Yeah it fucking sucks that you broke up but you new he want the right guy. Honestly I'd hit up this other dude up and tell him whats up. Maybe not go out but just conversation. Ain't nothing wrong with that you do need some time to heal and I don't recommend jumping from on relationship to the next but nothing wrong with you messaging this guy.0

Well, when you feel ready to move on you'll know that time. Obviously letting him know that you fancy him but you just broke up recently with an ex and you need time to heal to be ok with moving on with him would be a good idea. That way he knows you have an interest in him, but you're emotionally unhealthy at this stage, but a future together will be possible, once you feel better overall.0
