I'd like to add my welcome.
The transition can be very difficult - at least you have got *some* positive feedback from him.
You didn't mention this in your intro, but is your interest in having a relationship with other men, or women? If it's only women you are interested in, then your way forward might be a little clearer. However, if you are interested in other men, then you will have some more work to do together in order to work that one through.
My main words of advice are to take things slowly - be patient; Don't assume anything when it comes to what both of you are thinking.
