I just recently ended things with my last bf; it didn't work out. I wasn't happy but was nice about it and talked to him.
I recently just met another guy but it's only been less than a week from the break up and we're close.
In realizing, I just don't want to rush and make a mistake, even the new guy has said that he deserves a fresh start without my ex being present; this includes my ex on Facebook or talking so much to me. the new one said otherwise he feels a sense of guilt like he 'stole' me away from my ex. there was a confrontation where my ex told the new guy (I haven't given him an official title yet), to basically fuck off.
I want to tell the new guy that I need a break. do you believe this will make him leave or he will wait? there have been invites to dinner at his family's place, and I doubt he isnt' taking me seriously as a potential gf.
Most Helpful Guy
The most appropriate thing to do? Don't jump from one relationship into another. Take some time to catch your breath. You don't have to stay away from this new guy if you don't want to (though of course if you'd prefer some distance then you should take it of course), but I would suggest talking to your ex about what's going on, out of respect for his feelings. He might get mad, perhaps rightfully so because considering how little time has passed it perhaps says something about how much your relationship with your ex meant to you in the end, and of course that hurts, but also remember that you have every right to pursue happiness, and that however much your ex is in pain or however justified he might be in his anger, he has no say about what you are to do with your life.
As for whether this new guy would be willing to wait for you, that would depend on how long you plan for this break to be and how serious he is about you. Remember though that you shouldn't want a guy to wait for you too long. It's not good to wait for someone to be ready for a relationship. If they're not ready then they're not ready, and that's too bad, but life goes on.0
