Most Helpful Guy
I agree with weapon. If it didn't work between you two in the beginning, then why would it ever work? Look if you still have feelings for your ex, dont date the new guy and then screw with his head just so you can leave him a month or two later. Dont rebound.
If you can do it, try things out with the new guy and do NOT bring your ex with the relationship.
Most Helpful Girl
Tell the new guy that you're not ready to start anything right now because you'e not yet over your ex.
However, sounds like you don't want to be, with how you said that you feel 'neither of you deserve better'. You're willingly squashing the chance of not getting over your ex and turning down potential new guys, holding on to the hope that something will get rekindled between you guys.
Be honest to this new guy.
