it depends on how serious it was and how much you loved this person.
if you really love them then you'll never get over it completely, there will always be something there.
the best thing to do is surround yourself with friends and family. take a long holiday. have something (or someone) else to give you a distraction.
i know it doesn't sound nice.. but dating websites really do help! its also a little selfish maybe, but with people giving you compliments and showing you attention it is a great confidence booster and distraction, and you never know.. you might end up finding someone better :)
I don't think you ever get over it-you just learn to live with it and learn from it--but like a death, it will stay with you.
Well it's over 2 years since my first serious relationship ended and that still affects me. Some things are lessons learnt and they never go away. However, it usually takes anything from a few weeks to several months for me to move on and start looking to find someone new once again.
I would say a year for the heart break to be over, but longer to completely let go.
Three years and counting for a not-so-serious relationship
IT DEPENDS HOW DEEP WAS UR LOVE TO THAT PERSON :¬)
I've only had three that I'd define as "serious". Hmm. The first one took about a year and a half to get over, I guess. But I'm the one who broke it off. Getting over my divorce, as far as missing him or feeling bad about it, maybe three years? I'm not sure. I don't know that I'm "over" it, though now all I feel is a certain type of anger, as I'm raising our son alone. This last odd little relationship....still working it out of my system, but almost there. I guess it's going on two years. I was in love with him, and he's the only one I ever felt quite that way about.
I can feel myself getting all jaded.
I think it depends upon the relationship and how it effected not only emotionally, but mentally and physically too, i would say for an average relationship would be around 8months to a year, however sometimes you may never completely get over it, you may just deal with it better :)
