Everybody is different. I was with my husband for a total of 23 years(including dating). It was pretty much instantaneous for me- he was an abusive jerk and the day my divorce was final, I was ready to find someone who actually appreciates me. I didn't do it right then of course, but I'm just saying I didn't shed any tears over him.
about a year
Just getting through a divorce and my therapist says 6 months to be okay with the divorce itself and about 3 years to get over being bitter (since I was the one left/cheated on).
I have found that women can't be alone...they have to be in a relationship...men on the other hand can be perfectly fine w/o a gf...however after a time, men will desire the touch of a female and will most likely fall into another bad relationship just to get sex....Women need love and security, men need sex and respect....
i've heard 3 years. i;m currently ending a 20+ year relationship. Hope that's all the time it takes. It's pretty hard
I heard it was half the time the relationship lasted... Not true, but its about the person, you need to just let go I guess. Or forget almost everything like me
I was told the rule of thumb is 2 months of grieving per one year of relationship
depends how badly it failed, and with how much violence
and i don't necessarily mean physical violence
and people who instantly replace a partner usually only defer their grief
This is one of the subjective things. It's vary from one person to another, depends on the things around and in them too. And I think you brother need a distraction. Give him some time to settle down. Then, try to talk to him~
I would offer that it depends on how much you loved the other person. The more you loved them, the longer it takes (if ever).
