  • Yes my ex-wife, for the first few years afterwards i couldn't get over here and thought i had made the worst decision of my life splitting up with her. What was worse we where still friends and often thought about getting back together, more me than her thinking that. These days i am happily remarried with 2 kids and i never think of her anymore.
  • yep, my first bf, we were together for 11 months then he cheated on me.. but i got over it pretty quick, thanks to my friends
  • 9 months and iv never loved like that b4 or since, and it took me a year after being totally devastated. its just the most horrid feeling but if i can do it, literally the whole world can, because i was the one person that in my mind, was never going to get over it. it seemed too hard to start with. i did tho, i pass him in my car and think nothing of it, in fact nearly ran over him by accident the other day x
  • My boyfriend of a year and a half. It took me three and a half years to get over him. My last boyfriend was three years and heaven help me get over that one.
  • yeah, i was with my boyfriend for 19 months and i feel like im over it in 9 days. i felt like i would die without him but now im happier than ive ever been, thanks to goin out with friends etc
  • I never thought I would get over the father of my first Child. It took quite awhile and the love of a truly GOOD man, but it did happen..I haven't thought about..whats his name?....in years!!
  • My girlfriend and I dated for three years. She started working at hooters and decided I wasn't good enough for her. (LOL, I know) So one day she flat out said, "I don't want to be with you anymore, don't ask why it's because I just don't want to be with you anymore." And that very night she was out with other guys. (if shes here, who's running hell, right?) For six months I was a wreck, I couldn't even get hungry, I would only eat because I didn't want to die :). After six months I woke up one morning and said "Man-up god damnit, it's been six months, and there are 3 billion other women out there." It didn't stop hurting then, but that was when I stopped feeling sorry for myself and actually started to heal. So now(a year since) she is still working at hooters, and I am seeing the world, teaching english in guatemala right now. And she is asking when I'm going to visit her (never). I know I added a lot that you didnt ask for, but (1) It makes me feel good to belittle her :-P. and (2) I wanted to show that even though you feel they will never want you, give it some time, improve yourself, they will.
  • My last relationship was over a year and it took me a little over 2 weeks to get over him. Being around positive friends, food, and family helped a lot. Now I'm with an amazing person who i've known for years we've been dating for a few months.
  • i think we were together for like 3-4 yrs and then i got pregnant by him and he left. i thought i would never get over the betrayal or the hurt i felt. but i eventually did, i guess it took me like a yr to move on with my life.
  • my fiance left after 1 and a half years and it took me about 3 months to get over him. i met someone else very soon after and we becae good friends and his fiance had just left him so we talked it thriugh together having some1 who is going through what you are helps and helping some1 helped me. he on the other hand took much longer about 7 or 8 months and went through every bad stage but he was with her for over 4 years nearly 5.
  • It's three years now and I am still not over it. Each time I think I am making progress it seems I take another couple of steps back. Maybe that's because we were both still inlove with each other very much at the time I lost her(we didn't break up she passed away) We were together nearly 3 years at the time of her death.
  • Yeah, we were together for two years.
  • Oh I was with my X for 11 years and I thought he was the one its been six weeks and I'm in a lot of emotional pain. I wish it would just go away.
  • Yes. We were together on and off for a few years. It took a short time to get over her. My life was a mess, there was so much more going on.
  • Yes. I was with the first one for almost three years and the other for over five. I got over them both pretty quick...less than a year. When I decide something is hopeless, I move on.
  • Yes, I got over him, and now, I truly believe it was for the best. We were the "perfect couple", So I thought, he had me fooled. We never argued, he always treated me like a queen, we were making all types of future plans, then he knocked me too my knees, I was completely in love with him. He had a motorcycle accident, broke his whole right side, I took care of him, fed him, bathed him, wiped his ass, everything, for about four months, while 40 hours, and taking care of my two boys, two days after he got his settlement, he moved out on me, while I was at work, and had my brother-in-law help him, he told my brother-in-law, that I knew he was moving out. We were together for two years, it took me a year to truly move on, and then I still didnt want to date again. He still calls me and tell me how wrong he was and that he loves me, Ha!
  • I was married to a man i adored for 6 years. had a son with him. he cheated on me.i divorced him. it took me a good 5 yrs to really get over him, and in that 5 years had a failed relationship because of it. i think once your heart is broken that you should really not jump into any intimacy with anyone until you are emotionally ready to. or you will get hurt or hurt someone without realizing it. focus on doing good things for yourself to get over it and it really does get better.
  • I did recently. We were together on and off for 5 years and it ended when he went off in the military. I was seeing someone else anyway but still loved him and 2 years later, i am over him.
  • Yes, I was with him for 3 months. But it seemed more like a year. It took me 9 months to get over him. The next relatioship we were together on and off for 7 years(it was crazy) and eventually in that one he broke up with me and it took me about 2 months before I found someone else. Then I was only with the last one for a very short time. You do get over them. My Family told me that I would as well as friends. It seemed like the end of the world at first and I had played all the sad music I could play and read all the books on the subject that I could read. After that, I found out I was fine on my own.
  • oh wow we were together for almost 4 years off and on for the last one. it took a year or so to get over him. well i still love him and acknowledge that he was a major and important influence on my life but im over wanting to be with him as a girlfriend though i would have no problem and i actually would love to live with him as a sort of caretaker maybe (he's paralyzed and doesnt have much money for a nurse his family isnt much help either) but we dont talk anymore as of now, hes in jail for a while (sold his meds for money). im still not sure if i'll eventaully reconnect when he gets out he really does deserve at least decent care and his family is just terrible to him (one meal a day, overflowing catheter bag thing hes gotta empty it into soda bottles sometimes cause they wont do it)
  • Yes. We were together for 2.5 years, and it took about 4 months to get over him. 6 months after the breakup, I met the love of my life.
  • Oh yes. My God. He devoured my heart so bad I couldn't move, breathe, eat, get out of bed or stop the tears from soaking my pillow through and through. The scar I'll always have is a momento of a true love that really was. He's my ex-husband and I see him sometimes because of our children. We have a sweet friendship and we still care about each other but it's distant. It took me five years to get over that and I don't think I'll ever really stop loving him in a sense. When I see our boy and girl, they look like me and him. So at least I still see my heart walking and growing around me everyday in them. So the answer is yes. I was still able to move on somehow and now I have the greatest boyfriend that I could ever wish for who's my best friend and loves me and adores my kids as I do his. We are a Partridge Family! And I couldn't imagine my life any other way :)
  • I'm in the process of TRYING to get over my ex-bf. It's one of the hardest things ever. He was my first serious BF whom I loved so it hurt big time. We were together for 6 months, went thru 1 "war" as I call it when I fell for another guy online, and long distance. We went thru a lot and still managed. I'm still trying to get over it. Wish me luck.
  • I was with him for 10 years.It took awhile.(I didn't exactly keep track)If I could do things differently,I would've waited a good solid year after breaking up to date anyone.It would have given me time to get my thoughts straight.
  • Yeah I got over him. It took about a year. But I am now COMPLETELY over him.
  • Yes, more than once. One relationship lasted about 3 years. I got over her in a few months. The other was about 9 months when I was younger. It took about 5 months to get over her.
  • yes,,took about a year and end up in a worse relationship..great
  • I was 14 and we were together for a year.. back then i thought it was love now i'm in a relationship and it's been a year and a half, i've never felt more happy with anyone. But it took me almost a year to get over that one..
