I believe the answer to this question is it is going to depend on two items. One, the personality of the person out of the relationship you’re considering getting into a relationship with. Two, how good or bad the first relationship was and how good or bad it ended.
If the person’s personality is very flexible they’re able to cope with the relationship ending well and the relationship in question didn’t end badly, then getting straight-a-way into a new relationship with them isn’t too terrible of an idea. However, if the opposite of all this is true, then you might consider waiting a few days or a few weeks before trying to develop something new with them.
People need time to mourn and grieve of the loss of what’s ended before they are mentally or emotionally reading for something new. Giving them that time might be very conducive to making sure the new relationship you want with them develops with a good foundation and will last. Otherwise, you might be setting yourself up for failure before your new relationship has had a chance to develop well. That’s my bottom line.

I would say no less than a year, because it takes time for most people to move on. People go through a grieving process after a break up and that process takes time. So they aren't ready to enter into a new relationship until they are past the acceptance stage , and that can take up to a year or more in some cases1
