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~
That all depends upon the person. YOU... If you let it bother you then it will be a long time.
If you don't let it bother you then you will be fine soon.
Just tell yourself that you are better off with out the jerk and that it could be worse if you had stayed together!
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).
It can take months to years to get over a relationship.
