    No it wouldn't. If anything it would probably say that you don't want anything to happen, as you've only just come out of a relationship.

    If you like her then just ask her on a date.

    It's all up for interpretation. I agree though, I personally wouldn't find it flirty.

    I'll probably try to mention it as nonchalantly as I can and not make a big deal of it and then see how she reacts?

    You're welcome! Your best bet would definitely be to ask her out for dinner/coffee/whatever sometime. Her answer will tell you all you need to know

    If you said what you said in the OP they would get the impression of you being a wreck. Nothing wrong with that, but not an attractive thought.

    If someone said that to me I'm not sure if I'd take it as a hint (they could just be making conversation...), it wouldn't really make me more attracted to them though.

    Depends how well you know her, if you're friends and talk about that sort of stuff then yeah it would be fine to mention it. If its some random girl you say hi to every now and again, telling about a break up would be weird.

    If you don't really speak to the girl that much I would recommend speaking to her a bit more and then starting to be a bit more flirty in other ways, I would avoid saying that you've just had a breakup. It can make people think that they're just a rebound or that you can't deal with not being single and are just desperate - neither are good for you.
