I have just finished with my girlfriend today, she was devestated and cried a lot.

But im interested in another girl who i know, but the question is how long should i wait before asking the other girl out? My ex and i work together so it may be awkward between us for a while, depending how she feels.

Should i just ask the other girl out? Or wait for a few weeks?

Rebound relationships are about the most jinxed thing on the planet, honestly. Not only out of respect for your ex, but in order to give yourself the headspce you need, jumping right into something new is generally a really bad idea.

I say wait at least a few weeks. Really.
