I just got out of a really bad relationship recently and since then I have been asked out by 3 guys and hit on by more than I can count and I am just feeling really frustrated because I just got a restraining order on my ex today and now I have all these guys over me and I just feel overwhelmed. I am thinking I should announce on Facebook that I am just not ready for a relationship and that no one asks me out for another month or two because it's just too much for me right now. I hate posting personal stuff but I just really want everyone to back off for awhile.
Also, I want guys to back off because I really like one of my friends and I would like to see if I can start something with him and I need time to figure out if we have something. I am not going to jump into things with him either it's just that through this whole thing he has been the voice of reason and he has been protecting me from my abusive ex and has really taken care of me and I just want him to be around because he's the only guy I have an emotional attachment to and I just feel safe and secure around him and I need that right now.
Thanks for any advice.

I was just talking about this kind of thing not long ago regarding Facebook. I even posted a question about it yesterday. I was thinking about how Facebook has just too much information about each of us, and its there for all the world to see. I personally wouldn't post sensitive or intimate information on Facebook unless you have your friends organized into lists with their own privacy settings. But anyways to your question, I would post on Facebook if it was a more generalized statement about how you're done with guys for now (prepare for lesbian jokes lol). Or perhaps you can hide your relationship status so it doesn't say single. But I would talk in person or over phone to the guys that are interested to let them know you are not interested in dating right now. Hope this helps :)1
