    So is your question should you go on a date now with someone else? If so then I think going on a date with someone else is harmless. I wouldn’t be looking for anything serious since you were engaged to someone not too long ago, but I don’t think going out for a good time is anything to avoid.

    i think you need time for yourself. don’t jump into another relationship. figure out what YOU want from life. be you. be single. enjoy it.

    Okay I see it now! I wouldn’t jump into a relationship like the PP said, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with going out on a date.

    NekoKitten:  If your heart feels ready to move on, and your mind agrees, go on the date! Enjoy yourself and enjoy being with a man that treats you right. Only you know if you’re ready or not!

    I don’t think anyone knows whether you’re ready except for you. If you want to say yes, then say yes! I think the worst thing you could do would be to create some arbitrary or artificial set of rules to live by. Your gut got you this far, keep on trusting it!

    I voted other, because it really depends on whether or not you’re ready. But since you did mention that you do feel ready to move on, you should go for it.

    I say go for it!!!! I was engaged to my daughters father and we split in June of 2012. My FI and I had already known each for years so I knew he was a good guy. We started dating in October and haven’t looked back! I definitely had that thought in the beginning that it was too soon but only you know how you feel.  Go with your gut girl!

    Go for it  girl! Life is too short not to enjoy it now! Forget the ex, the etiquette, the rules, or anything else. Its your life! Too bad for the ex! He should have been nicer to you. Do you think if the ex meets a new girl he will start thinking about etiquette, rules and so forth or even worry about your feelings. Huh! Don’t think so!

     

    There’s a reason for everything and the fact that it didn’t work out with the ex might just be because there was someone else in this world that would appreciate you and love you and be good to you. Go girl!

    NekoKitten:  I’d probably say yes, but maybe go reeeeeally sloooowly.
