How long is acceptable to start seeing someone else after finishing in a relationship

You'll never get a concensus on that!

whatever the person is happy with, imo.

Depends on their circumstances, the circumstances of the break up, whether they're emotionally ready, etc.

I don't believe you owe the other person a period of celibacy, iyswim.

so it's whenever the individual feels ready.

How long were you together? Who ended with who?

oh well, if you are leaving someone because you have already met someone else you would prefer to be with but don't want to embark on a sleezy affair, then it's more a question of kindness rather than rubbing it in their face really, than it is about acceptable periods of time. You're doing the right thing, ending your current relationship first.
If more people did that, it'd be great.
