    It's a bit soon but if you wait as others have said there's a risk someone else will try and succeed. A few weeks isn't gonna make a difference so I'd say go for it. But she's likely to tell you 'I don't want a relationship right now'.

    It's perfectly possible,I know examples of this
    We must have had different experiences then because where its happened to my female friends if they go too soon its a rebound . When they come out of long term relationships they tend to be too exhausted and upset to want to jump straight back in, so tend to take several months or more till they feel they want another one. A seven year relationship is a lot to get over.

    This girl that I've known for a few years recently broke up with her now ex-boyfriend. They were together for 7 years.

    Is it too soon to try to make a move on her? She's a nice girl and we have been friends for a while.

    Should I wait it out a few more weeks or do something now?
    You'd actually consider jumping in and being nothing more than (at best) a rebound? Is that all the respect you have for your friend and yourself?
