so ive been single for about 5 months now i like a girl and she likes me the only thing is im not sure if im ready to be in another long distance relationship even if i have known her for awhile what should i do?

Going for a long distance relationship can be daunting. It can also be hard to jump into a new relationship if you were just figuring out who you are in this new period of being single. There are a lot of variables influencing your decision - the long distance and the recency of your last breakup should be considered separately, I think.

Ultimately, it’s about you knowing your needs and how to best get them met. There are pros and cons to every choice, and I can’t make yours for you. The one thing I’d recommend is to commit to whatever choice you make, rather than keeping her (and yourself) on the line while waiting to see how things shake down. That doesn’t mean things can’t change later, but it means that whatever terms you set for your present relationship with this girl aren’t being clouded by hopes and expectations for a future that may or may not happen.
