there is no time limit on how long you wait...you need to consider a few things first
1) can you stand seeing him with another girl
2) if you were to be out with your new guy and you had a double date with him and his new girl, could you sit behind them in a drive in movie and see him go in for a kiss towards her, or would you even be able to go on a double date
3) can you two be around each other without feeling weird, understand you're only friends, not hook up and be OK with what has happened?
if BOTH of you can answer YES to all of those questions, yorue ready to be friends...otherwise you're lying to yourself when you say you are ready to be friends...the key point here is you have to be completely over that person and understand you and him are on different paths, meeting different ppl, until you are not phased by his choices and decisions and actions then you won't be ready...you need to be over him and he needs to be over you...understand?
hope this helps - again there is no time limit, it all depends on the BOTH of you7
