  • Not long it was so pointless. I think everyone has one that they still think about from time to time but not that one.
  • It took me quite awhile before I felt I was "over" my last marriage. I didn't feel ready to date again for two years. It was a very difficult time, but I came through it a better person.
  • Well it didn't end horribly, so I was let down easy, but it was about a year till I was interested in anyone else, commitment kinda lingers unfortunately
  • About three and a half years.
  • Because it ended in suicide, I don't think I've ever completely gotten 'over it'. I have moved forward in my life, and am now happily married. I am still, however, a bit sore in the heart from the way the last one ended. It is no threat to my love for my husband, it is just one of those things that never fully 'leaves' you.
  • 5 minutes. he was not the best boyfriend in the world. when i gained 5 lbs and he told me i was getting fat (I was about 120lbs) it was a matter of a couple weeks before i ended that.
  • I was in a long-distance relationship with someone who wouldn't commit, who lied, insulted me, and I'm quite certain cheated on me. I was depressed for a long time, and gained a lot of weight. I finally decided it wasn't worth it. I joined Weight Watchers, ended the relationship, and was "over" it immediatedly. I found someone else very special in less than a month (we've been together almost 4 years). My ex STILL wants to be "friends." I guess my ex is the one dealing with "getting over it."
  • well a year and a half. when you want to get over them you will and i forced it. but it's gone.
  • Took me 2 years to get over, after breaking off all contact. Then he contacted me shortly after I was married, and it took another year to get over that.
  • A couple of months!
  • 7 years and counting.
  • 6 months
  • A day or two. I broke up with her, so it was my decision.
  • I'm not completely over it, to be honest...
  • Perhaps a few weeks. I dumped him, but it was the emotional damage that he'd caused me that lingered for much longer.
  • is been almost 2 months, and it still hurts.. still working on it.. what a asshole.... I hate him now.... but deep down insede still miss him
  • How can i get over? My ex who left me a couple of months ago still keeps calling me despite her being someone else (which is the reason why she left in the first place).. She was my best friend and my first girlfriend which makes this experience and feeling a new and unusual one for me. I try not to communicate with her but she still calls and updates me every 2 days, even about her love life.. she buzzes me where not to go because she will be there with the new guy.. then at times she tells me that she misses me, loves me, and all that jazz.. what is her deal!! Its so hard but I really want to get over her.. i don't know who she is anymore..
  • Still not over it. Is a very hard one for me. Some I have gotten over before they ended and some ended maybe a day or 2 before I got over it. This one is going on 7 months and keeps hurting more and more. Guess it just depends on how strong and true the feelings are.
  • I was with my ex for over two years and weve been broken up for about a month...even though I was the one to end it, I'm still not over him!
  • A couple of months. I'm still angry, concerning the circumstances of our breakup, and hope lots of bad things happen to him for what he did to me... but as far as feelings go, I'm ready for (and am in) another relationship.
  • Not long at all.
  • 3 years but its my fault u can help urself to forget by working playing try to love again and enjoying life bec its not the end of life pray to god its really will help u to forget
  • i'm not really sure if there was anything to get over.. i ended the relationship, although he was still living with me for a few months after! (as stupid as it sounds) ..
  • took 2 1/2 years before i starting dating again....
  • A week. It took me that long to write and email all his "pen pals" and tell them what a jerk he was and that he told almost all of them the same things, most of which were lies.
  • 4-5 months from a 5 months relationship
  • 9 months and counting.
  • A bar and a night with the guys
  • 41 years and I'm still trying to get over it. I loved her then and still do. In fact very much she is why I have never married or been in a live in relationship. She was also my longest girlfriend and the only one I asked to marry me.
  • I'm still not over it. But i will be!!
  • I just love these kinds of questions that make me remember these kind of things.
  • I am still working on that one.
  • first one took a drunken night with the girls, second one.. its been 2 months and i am still trying to fool myself thinking that im over him... i guess it just depends on the intensity of the relationship...
  • I'm not certain, to be honest. It's been four days since it happened, and considering I was and am head over heels for her, I don't hesitate to join my friends doing stuff, or talking to her on the phone (she's away at a family member's funeral). That said, I'm also taking care of her pets while she's gone; when I left, I caught a whiff of her perfume from something, and damned near broke down on the spot.
  • 1month 1/2 my heart was already damaged for all the bull.. so I just buried 6 feet under after we separated.
  • About 3-5 days! I'm so much better off without him!!!
  • Going on 2 years now.
  • well... we broke up march 17 (i swear i don't remember the date)... and i didn't kiss someone else for 4 weeks, didn't have sex with someone else for 2 months, and didn't get into another relationship until july 16... so 3 months. felt like years. glargh.
  • I divorced her after giving her chance after chance. The crime: her Vanity (I am richer than thou !!!) Although I fully and completely supported her and my children, she foul mouthed me and my extended family everywhere for more than a decade, did exactly opposite to what I felt or wanted, secretly doing things that neither I nor anybody else in our family knew of while not acknowledging or providing any reason for those actions, believing and practicing more in amulets and talismans than in extending courtesy performing duties and improving household environment. My ex has all of my children because she threatened me that I would not be able to keep them safe and secure. This is a credible threat given her rich background and history of her actions. I almost died once this relationship ended - and more importantly my children were abducted and kept by her. My children (two daughters now in teens followed by three sons) are ALL my life. So then going through that traumatic phase I came to understand: * why people commit suicide * why people go to pot * why people become recluse * why people become extremists * why people rebel against God * why people become harsh toned, hurtful and pessimistic * why people become sleep looser Thanks God that he saved me from all of the above and the dark depressive period is over after I tried very very very hard to come back. In reality I have not gotten over it fully but I am back to Life. Hope it would be back to normal once my children grow up and realize what has happened to them. Ameen !!!
  • I'm still working it. It's been 18 years. I was married for 24 years. I don't dwell on it, but being divorced has changed my life in ways I'm still realizing. It's not all bad, though.
  • I'll let you know when that happens...
  • I'm still not over either of the two ... it has all been on and off way too much .... and he still wants me to ask for forgiveness for seeing my ex while we weren't together!
  • Since I kinda knew it was a mistake to begin with I was over it the minute it happened.
  • I'll let you know. So far it's only been three days....thank God for football. Last time it was baseball:)
  • About a year. It was a 7 year relationship.
  • Have of the time that you were together. If it was for a year then you would need 6 months. This is how it works my friends.
  • Half of the time that you were together. If it was for a year then you would need 6 months. This is how it works my friends.
  • well pal...i think it all depends on your wish to move on in life....... to find some new people who can make you smile..... with whom you can feel better........ rather then thinking about the bad experiences in life.............. always remember...... if one person hurts you.... it's not because you are deserve it...... but because you have 10 more good people waiting to care for you.............. believe me its true.. :)
  • Six weeks in a cast and 38 stitches.
  • Any day now.
  • Almost there....
  • I think I was over it long before we broke up, so it didn't take me long to move on
  • 2 months and counting. After 8 years and loving with all of my heart it hurts to be cheated on. I will never forget. It took 5 days to say goodbye but I don't know how long it will be to "get over it". Part of me will always be sore about it, but I am already moving on. I stay positive - it was not my fault!
  • I'll let you know, lol
  • i cant find my self without him!!!! BUT he left me without saying Goodbye !!!! without saying a word.. without any Convincing excuse,,, But I will rise up again on my feet and walk to the future with optimism and hope and happiness ,, i miss drinking (karak tea) with you in Shj city... miss you
  • This break up will take forever for me to get over. I'm about to leave the love of my life.
  • Took me a few months after the anger, hurt, and tears but it made me stronger because cheaters never prosper.
  • It has probly takening me 3 to 4 months to get over my previous relationship
  • it took me a year to get ove my ex even though i had another boyfriend and with my current bf i still call him by ex name
  • It's been 3 days since I found out my girlfriend was going to "see" her Ex. The first day my feelings for her suddenly changed;love became rage, the second, rage became hate and now I'm just angry. I'm trying to think positively and keep my mind busy. I haven't done anything wrong. She's a bitch and does not deserve me or anyone honest to be part of her life. She'll never get anywhere in life doing this type of shit. And right now I really don't care about her. Feeling better already :-)
  • i dont know how long it will take.... but right now im not willing to get over it. It was far to great and im workin on it. Just giving him the space he needs and hoping for him to realise his love for me like i love him....
  • its been 2 years this 2009 and nope id go back any day just went to a party with her lastnight and that did not help because it brought back so many memories and i wanted to say i love you but i know she is gettimg over me as everyday gose on but dont give up theres alot more out there
  • 2 month-ish for a year long relationship. im proud of myself :]
  • it depends on the relationship: how strong the feelings were, who broke up with who, and the reason for breaking up. it also depends on how you're working to get over it. for me the best remedy is finding someone else to like. but before you do that you need to really be as sad as you are and almost embrace your broken heart, or else it makes everything harder to deal with. once you're done wallowing get out there and flirt it up like old times.
  • i guess your never truly over that person if it actually meant something for you in your life. personally i think love is something to be careful about and take good care of it. there are plenty of girls and guys out there. and well there is always a true soul mate somewhere out there you just have to keep going, because that breakup is not the end of the world, but the beginning of a new one :)
  • 15 months and counting.....
  • I am now into it and it hurts so much. I always pray that I woke up one day that he's no longer in my system. I was with him for almost 7 years and it was really painful.
  • Well, it hasn't even been a month ... yet. I'm allowed to still think about him sometimes.
  • I had a girl friend once that told me to get back in the saddle.. Play and have fun that I would get over quickly. She was right. But I am older now and dont feel. That is the route I want to take this time. I only start tear up when I have to say he left well 95% of the time. I think I may never date again because of it. After 3 decades of bad decisions. I believe I must be the problem.
  • It took a month all I do is clean the house eceryday so that I won't remember his face. Just keepin' myself busy and cleaning is better than drinking beer. Right?
  • in a relationship for 10 months, its been 4 months and i think im over it although still have my doubts sometimes. hopefully within the next month i will be fine
  • I'm still getting over it. It doesn't help that we have a daughter together and have to communicate regarding her.
  • Not over it the 5 phases keep going round and round. I want these feelings to stop. He isn't 2 min of grieving over.
  • it took me some of them one year and other i have not forgotton.
  • the quicker you cut him/her off the quicker you can move on
  • 2 months and counting. i want to say i hate d guy but i cant :( he did some pretty horrible things to me and left me in a very difficult position. The worst part is we have alot of the same friends so Im still forced to see him quite regularly. . . .Just find it hard to believe that i believed his lies for 2yrs. Good question, its nice to see I'm not the only one going through it :)
  • a few months.
  • well 4 y passed and still she's not out of head, at least now i dont feel the same pain i used to feel when i thought about her.
