Thank you for all the comments and advice.

I have been regularly meeting and dating new people, but a few months ago I met someone and we went out pretty regularly (2-3x a week) for 2 months and I got a similar speech like "Radio Nate" after I asked where it is we are heading after becoming intimate. I felt as if I put all of my eggs in one basket so now i'm just a little unsure. I started dating others casually and lo and behold he came back in the picture saying things moved too fast, etc, but regrets getting scared and wants to see me again.

I guess I just don't want to feel like I am "cheating" on someone but that's what casual dating is about I guess. It's just keeping the intimacy out of it that keeps it casual I guess?

I think coming out of a marriage it is really hard to not act like a couple when that is all you have known for years and years. When you are used to being a pair, the casual dating thing doesn't feel right. At least for me it doesn't. I know how to be in a relationship (even if my ex-h didn't) and I'm learning how to be single. It is that in-between stuff that is SO confusing.

What I did was cut myself a HUGE break, take a deep breath, back off and relax. It feels good.
