My ex and I broke up a month ago (after two months of dating), and it wasn't a bad breakup, just some inconvenient timing (we didn't know if the relationship would be possible to carry on; turns out it is). However, since we've had a month break, both of us are just trying to take it easy and slow. Prior to the break,we were sexually active, but I think we're trying to hold back on that for now.
Anyway, we've hung out three times (lunch and dinners), and tonight is the first actual time we're calling it a date, but since the relationship wasn't long enough to be real serious, we're just playing things by ear and treating it like we did early on the first time around.
I've personally never dated someone again after ending a relationship, even one where the breakup wasn't bad, but for those who have, do you have any advice on how to approach the date? Is the slow, play-it-by-ear method I mention probably the best way?

I think the play-it-by-ear thing sounds good. You seem to have a good mindset about this and I wish you luck. I always think of it as a very good thing when the chance comes up to date an ex again, if the situation is right. The whole idea of it reminds me very much of the movie "For Lovers Only". Sometimes the timing isn't always right, but the couple is. Since you've dated before and like each other, it should happen naturally, that you feel open with each other to flirt and act like you did before.0
