So after a whirlwind of emotional turmoil over the last month, I finally decided to give up the ghost with my Ex. Tuesday was the last time we spoke and it didn't go very well at all, so I firmly told myself to commit to walking away.
Went out on a date Saturday with a girl I had met online and have been chatting with for the last week or so, and we had a great time. I can tell she's really into me, and the night ended on a high note. We didn't get into bed together, but there was certainly a connection.
Getting up this morning though, I felt really guilty and missed my Ex horribly. As bad as we have been to each other over the last month I thought that somebody new would help put my Ex out of mind... all it did though was bring her fully back into my thoughts.
Am I just digging my hole deeper at this point? I am totally at a loss.

You're on the right path, but it takes time. Also, you're bound to make a few rocky starts with new people before you find someone you're able to connect with on a substantive level. Just because your date went well doesn't mean that your heart's ready to jump into a big new relationship. Take the date for what it is -- a date.
If you're still feeling this sort of guilt six months down the road, it's best to go to professional counseling so you are certain to mend your heart after the obvious emotional scarring you've experienced.0
