My bestfriend doesn’t think I should date for a year


My ex broke up with me almost two months ago. I’ve been talking to a new guy for almost two weeks and I’m starting to actually like him. We’re literally the same person and we get a long way better than my ex and I ever did. But my bestfriend said I’m not allowed to date for a whole year and she thinks we should just stay friends. I enjoy being around this guy and idk, what do I do? I’m not looking to jump into another relationship yet but I’d like to have the option y’know?
