I was in a 6 year relationship, that ended 4 months ago. I've been dating around, and mingling. I'm usually the type of girl who wants a relationship and prefers relationships over dating. But lately I don't want to commit to anyone, I feel like I need a break and some time for myself. I'm kind of shy and I recently had a one night stand, to be honest it was actually a lot of fun. I feel like I need to let loose and have some fun. This is understandable after a break up right? I don't want my "fun" to later on in the future push someone away who I might want to commit too. Guys, would you hold it against your "so" if she had a single phase and did something's during this point in her life? I'm 24 and only have slept with two guys.
Is it normal to feel this way after a breakup? I don't want another relationship?

Nope. What you're feeling is perfectly normal. It takes time to adjust to the new normal, and you're on your way there. I wouldn't let it bother me.1
No, your 24 years old. It's expected1

You should give yourself time to heal emotionally and avoid all the sleeping around. Not because there's anything wrong with having fun, but because it'll make you feel hollow inside and jaded. I mean, it's like drug abuse or excessive drinking after a break up. Just be safe and don't overdo it. It took me over a year to get over a bad breakup. And I was happy I refrained from all contacts with guys.1
It's perfectly normal! I'm at the same stage, slept with one pretty hot Spanish dude. It's supposed to be exciting but oh well, guess I'm not quite the NSA type :/1
Who cares what they think. Guys do stuff like this all the time. No ones perfect and by the time you meet him it'll be part of your past. Hopefully you will have made some adjustments by then by taking care of yourself and growing. Focus on yourself, this time should be used wisely, one night stands never solve anything and if done frequently could cause attachment or put you in other bad situations you don't want (std, pregnancy, girlfriend drama etc..)1
