  • My gosh it varies so much from person to person. Some women are not very emotional and some men are intensely emotional so its a little hard to categorize. However, I have heard that men tend to hold in the pain at first causing them to feel a delayed anguish rather than one that is more instant...whereas women tend to experience the latter. How long was your relationship? The longer it was, the longer it might take to exorcise it from your emotional system. It also has a lot to do with how emotionally intense you are as a person. I think that is the crux.
  • I think one year should be the minimum time in order to "collect yourself" and keep on going in life.
  • some say its half the time you were together. all people are different though.
  • it took me six months to move on I still love her too
  • It really depends how long you were together and how deeply you cared for that person. But, I think what PP said was about right: about half the time you were together to fully be over them.
  • It depends on the person. Some people move on faster than others regardless of their gender.
  • I don't believe so - I have gotten over someone in a week and them some took me years... I would say it depends on the substance of the relation before the breakup. If they were someone you seen yourself with in 50 years it's going to be a while - if it was someone you just dealt with - it's gonna be a walk in the park.
  • Everyone's different. I've been on and off with my ex for so long, in order to get over him I had to change schools, right now I'm feeling fine, but I know the day I talk to him again, whether it be in 2 days or 2 years, the old feelings will rush back, because that's what always happens..
  • 6 months is a good ballpark figure. A minimum of a year for marriages. Two years absolute maximum for any relationship. A strong spiritual life can reduce the "get over time" dramatically. Another way to reduce the get over time is to never ever sexually fantasize about the ex, as this delays the healing. I think also when one has had numerous relationships in life , the time is shorter.
