For more background regarding timelines -- my partner had a couple FWB/casual hookups and we had a threesome in the first few months of the relationship that were not a problem. About 7 months in he started getting itchy to find a secondary. I definitely didn't feel ready but thought I'd get over it. About a month later he found one and everything got much worse for me instead of better. We've been dealing with the fallout since.
I don't foresee myself being interested in dating for another year or so, but it is really much more a matter of meeting someone I feel a strong connection with than a numbers game.
