How long does it take you to move on?
What Girls Said 52
I only liked one person in my life and it was intense. I'm pretty clueless as to what real love is and what crushes really are. When I told him that I had feelings for him he rejected me even though we're still friends. It's been around 4 months since that happened and I still have feelings for him.. It may not have been love but it was something and I still feel it even now. In the end, if he's happy then I'm happy :)
I know I'm pretty sappy XD

Well, like one of the anonymous people stated, it really depends on how much you cared for the person. For example, when i broke up with my first boyfriend, yes it was hard but it was hard because I knew it wasn't the right relationship for me, and i knew that it wouldn't last long. I cried over the fact that I was stupid and suborn. It took me about…. a month, to fully get over it and move on.
I take months to move on and if the connection was really strong, even up to a year because it allow me time for closure so that when I meet someone new i don't compre them to my crush and like them because they are similar or different but actually know them for who they are.
It has a lot to do with the kind of bond you felt with that person, even if it was only on an emotional level. You're still close to them, still used to them in your life in some fashion. It takes time, I'd say at least 5-6 months, depending on if you were strong and went NC it might be shorter.
In most cases, it takes me no more than 24 hours. I get upset about it briefly, and then I move on and find someone else to like. If I'm in love with the guy, though, it takes months.
It took 3 months to get over my first love. It's been 6 months and I'm still trying to get over my second love.
I have only dated one person so far. I don't think it was the worst break up someone could imagine. It took me like a few months, but I don't know if I dated someone else things might go differently... I don't think it would ever take me a YEAR though...
it depends how much i cared about the guy. i probably average a few months, because if i fall for someone i usually fall really hard. sometimes it takes close to a year. but for minor crushes or dates or hookups that just don't work out, it's pretty quick...usually a few days.
I can't really say because it varies. I got over my first ex boyfriend who cheated on me after a 2 year relationship within days because I never loved him but I thought I did. Then I fell for my last ex so it took about a year but that was mainly dealing with the abuse. I know it'd take a life time to get over my current boyfriend - I've never felt so strongly for someone before.
tbh, it takes me just days to get over a friendship depending on how we broke it off. for a crush it took months and since i'm still crushing on one of my friends its been a few years lol. the more you care for someone the longer it takes. everyone's situation is different. mine was rocky and a bit traumatic with my mom. but with the right mindset it only takes days to figure out you need to keep moving and live your life.
Depends on the relationship. If you have been together for awhile it may take years, while shorter relationships usually require less healing time. I've boyfriend for almost 2 years and we have made plans to get married in the future, if he left me I probably wouldn't get over him, I just learn not to think about him.
I said "months" in my vote because that's how long it takes me to get over most of my exes (four). It took me about two years to get over my first boyfriend though.
Depends on what there was between us...how long ti lasted and how intense it was.
Mostly (if it was meaningful - months).
If it wasn't...days or weeks...
I said months because I think that is truest the amount of time it takes to fully get over someone and start becoming interested with someone new. Remember, if you still talk about it you still care about it
Well I had a crush on these guy Keith O
He didn't really like me. He said he went down thst dating path and didn't like it.
I said oh I mean yeah I was hurt. But what can you do. I never really cried that much for him
I think it really depends on how deeply you felt for that person, and how long you were together. You´re not going to be as devastated about a 3 month relationship as opposed to a 15 yr one.
I think it doesn't just depend on how long you were with your significant other, it also depends on how good the relationship was.
I was with this guy for over two years, but he treated my like crap, so when I finally did get the courage to break up with him. I moved on the next day. Because I was so unhappy for so long I was already broken up with him in my heart months before I officially ended it
Then I dated one guy for 3 months and he had to move away very suddenly and we fell apart. That took me nearly 4 months to get over because it was so sudden and nothing was really wrong in the relationship, he moved and it was just too big of a strain.
I guess I just fall too hard for the guys I like. No, I'm not clingy or anything annoying or creepy like that. I just fall too hard too fast because I trust the guys I'm with; I guess that's why it takes me a few months to get over a guy.
I had a crush on a guy for a while and got turned down which really sucked. It took a while for me to get over him because i had built him up in my mind to be the perfect guy and now i compare the guys i meet to this unrealistic image. Finally I was able to meet someone who captured my attention in the same way.
a month or less. why waste my time on something that ended. i want to live the present, not the past.
It depends on who it was and how much I cared for them. It can range from a week to 6 months. On average, it takes a month and a half to two.
It depends on:
Who ended the relationship
Why the relationship ended
How long the relationship lasted
How much you 'connected' with your ex
usually when i break up with them it means I'm already over them..i don't break up with them unless I'm sure,,
Depends on how deep the relationship is, bewteen months to a year
It took me about a year and a half bc our relationship was on and off for almost three years

My last ex cheated on me (emotionally) and i guess i just feel out of love with her from her actions. I am over her now. i still DO NOT like her at all cuz of everything that she did on top of the cheating. Her on the other hand is not doing well with the guilt and the depression. I guess she knows how i felt for the time we were dating...
Usually it depends on how strong my feelings were for them, For the most part if the relationship lasted a few months then yeah ill be upset for 2 weeks or so.
If it was over a year or more, obviously I truly loved them and that can take weeks or months just for me to snap out of the funk.
I say days because my most recent rejection was pretty harsh. The girl basically lied to me and used me as an ego boost, than dropped me like a hot potato. I was super depressed for 3 or four days and the next I woke up and took a 5 mile bike ride, and was fine lol.
The first girl I had a crush on in college took me about a month or so to get over. It was near the end of the school year and I was preoccupied with finals and getting ready to move back home. We were good friends before I started to like her too, so we were happy.
It took me over 7 months and I still do miss her, but accepted that our relationship can never be possible, nor can I forget her ever. We are in no contact since months. So I am not feeling hurt anymore...
I miss her, yes very much; Hurt? No. Not that much now.
The time to heal depends on the length of the relationship and how intensely you loved each other... and ACCEPTING things play biggest role in healing process. That takes a LOT OF Strength and mental maturity.
Im 37..Im still coping with mine..from 20 years ago (true story)
Depends if you were friends with the person before the relationship and how long you were in the relationship with the person.
In my experience, it's about one month per year up to 10 years.
It has been different: the first time it took me 4 years. The last time about 3 weeks. Once it was done the same day.
it depends how the relationship was going from start. if it was bad (like my latest) then it is a relief to break up
Last girl agreed to marry me so it took me quite some time. Almost a year.
I have never been turned down, but I got left/cheated on =( It has been 7 months, I Am over her, but I still heal slowly.
It actually depend on how long the relationship last.
It depends. When I don't get rejected by my crush, but instead I find out that she's been having a crush on me too, then we text and get to know each other and find out that we're so alike and have so much in common, and she says I'm perfect for her and asks me where I've been all her life, and then the next week she tells me she thinks we're better off as friends, so we just text but all of a sudden she doesn't reply...well...I don't know how long it'll take to get her off my mind. Hopefully no more than a month.
All I need is a good lunch and im over it
shake the dust off your feet and move on.
Few days at maximum
It takes me just a couple of hours.
I really look up to the people who can move on so quickly. I'm wish/pray I could be this tough.
It has been 10 years for me and I still have not moved on.
sadly it took me nearly 2 years to get over just a female friend that i liked, she chose not to be in my life anymore and it was tough, i am happy to say i am not feeling down about this now because a year and a half was a long time to be heartbroken over nothing, i promised myself i would never feel this way again about a crush

It is what it is!
It depends on how long the relationship lasted. The longer you were involved, the more work you put into it, and the longer it takes to get over it.
