You're concerned with getting him back, but my question to you is, what is the guarantee that you won't make that same mistake again? What was the reason you dumped him the first place? Have you resolved those issues within yourself so that you can have a drama free long lasting relationship with him now?
I find your motives a little on the selfish side. You made a decision to break it off and now that he's moved on and you're still single, you want him back. I understand your regret, but I don't think this is your decision to make. It's like the kid who stopped playing with a toy and only suddenly becoming interested again because another kid wants to play with it. I sense more envy on your part than it is love, however, I cannot judge.
Still, there's no harm in expressing your feelings for him to him. You never know how one feels about someone else at any given time. Maybe he isn't entirely happy or perhaps he'd like to know that you still have feelings for him. That is to the extent you should do anything to try to get him back. If he is in fact happy within his new situation, you should respect him enough to let go and prime yourself so that the next good one that comes around, you will be ready to receive him and won't let him get away the way you did this one.
I wish you luck in love.0
