Should I be single?

Okay so I'm with this girl and we've been together on and of for about 8 months. During one of the times we weren't together, I got with this guy. We had been best friends for four years. I ended up cheating on him with her and broke his heart. I will never let myself forget it. The only problem I'm having now, is I've noticed my attraction to him growing. But now I'm with her. I'm still friends with him. I've been contemplating just being single for awhile. I have major issues with being alone though so it scares me. Does anyone have some advice?
