    my ex and i broke up 2 months ago after a 3 year relationship.

    i've just started working. i spent 2 months in one department and now have moved to another. whilst i was there, there was a really nice guy who is 6 years above me, who made it clear to me that he liked me from the start. however, he's since asked another girl out whos the same level as me, but she had to turn him down. so i wonder if he is a bit of a player, but at least i know he's not asked out anyone else at my workplace.

    i've been finding it really difficult to get over my ex. i miss him like crazy and just don't know how to get over him. this other guy knows my ex and i have only just split up.

    should i go on a date with him and see what happens? is it better to start dating after you are totally over someone? also i've never dated anyone so much older than me.... any thoughts?

    Well it's up to you. I don't think it would be fair to imply that you are ready to get in to something serious when you aren't.

    But if you make it clear to the guy- maybe say I'm not sure about how I feel about X right now. If then he still says he'd like to go out on a date, then it's his choice. And it could help you get over the other guy to socialise with someone new. Just try and be really up front with him that you don't want to go further than casual dating just yet.
