I am single, but am I ready to mingle?

Question by JustJane: I am single, but am I ready to mingle?
To cut a very long story short, I got rejected by a “friend” of mine on Monday last week, spent the next two days in depression and confusion (mind you, I was in depression for the past couple of months, and this just added to it!). On Thursday I got asked out by a guy who seems quite nice. I turned him down nicely, explaining what I’d just recently been through. He agreed that it was too soon for me to be dating, and perhaps we should just start as friends and see how it goes? I said alright, and I’m meeting him day after tomorrow for coffee (yay!)

Couple of things:
1) he is ten years older than me. I am 23. But we have the same taste in music, same views on various topics which I feel strongly about.. Do you think he’s too old for me?
2) He is half-Greek, half-Irish. I’m Pakistani but brought up in Dubai. He says he finds me and my smile really, really attractive. Do you think that differences in our culture could be a barrier? He has the same family-oriented views that I do, and loves to be with people from another culture (and I do too!)
3) Due to really bad experiences with men in the past, I am feeling very cautious and unsure of myself, but I really like this guy and it is the first time that I’ve actually clicked with someone (past boyfriends all being douche bags of the highest order).
4) I’ve just barely deleted emails of so-called friend, and I am being asked out by this lovely bloke. I have no feelings except regret that I wasted time on that “friend”, and I most definitely don’t want him back even if someone serves him up on a gold platter dressed with tartare sauce! (Plenty of fish in the sea and all that.)

Do you think it’s too soon for me to be dating?
