Hi - after hanging around "breaking up is hard to do" for a couple months, I'm ready to venture into the dating world yet again!

I would forget about the 1st guy since he's already dating someone, unless you hear that they broke up.

As far as the 2nd guy, I hate these vague kind of things like "let's chat sometime." I think if you want to pursue him a little, then send him an email through Facebook asking him some particular questions, but not about dating, and see if he responds. At least that will start up a conversation and then you can see if he asks for your phone number or suggests meeting in person. Don't make it so general like "what have you been up to in the past 25 yrs?"

Hi and welcome to the board! Congrats, too, on getting back into the game. I second the suggestions musiclover gave you, and wish you well in finding love again. :)

Alright, I just sent guy #2 an email through Facebook with a couple questions and some brief chit chat.
