Most Helpful Guy
personally I think that you should try being single for a little while.
NOT because I think you are doing this to make your ex jealous, I don't think that,
But rather because I think it will give you time to clear your head on how you actually feel and understand your emotions better, plus being single will possibly make your ex's friend approach you first.
Just consider it and know I would not have given this advice out to you if I felt it wouldn't do you good.
