What if I'm not ready to date again but at the same time feel extremely lonely?

My friend, dating people to keep yourself from feeling lonely is extremely unfair to the other people. You can't expect another human to fill a void in your life.

There's a lot to unpack here. It would be irresponsible of me to say anything with certainty, but I have a strong feeling you're dealing with Depression on top of having not properly mourned your breakup. I know from my own experience a really bad breakup can make a person feel like they'll never find love again and it can really wreck a sense of self-worth. I'd look into working on those issues first before dating anyone else.

Because you do deserve to have fun on dates, but you gotta at least be doing it from a healthier place.
