I know everyone is different but on average what would you say is the normal amount of time to get over an ex? my boyfriend of 6 months broke up with me a few nights ago and I have already done lots of crying and now I just miss him. I miss his hugs, his smile.. his smell. His beard (lol) I miss the way he made me laugh everyday. I know we broke up for the right reasons ( we wanted different things, had different goals in life etc) but even knowing that I still hurt. Everything reminds me of him. I see guys that look like him from the side or back and my heart skips a beat then sinks to my stomach when I realize it isn't him. I must love him to feel this much pain.

They say half the time that you were together. So in your case maybe 3 months depending on how much he meant to you1

I think it's all about mind set.
I was with my boyfriend almost two years, we've been broken up for six months, haven't seen eachother in two months and like you, it was for the best, we wanted different things, but that doesn' make it any easier.
There are times I'll lay inn bed, starring out the window and i can sweari feel his arm wrap around me. And you have to have times like these, You have to allow yourself grieve and miss them inn order to moveon. Just some people get stuck in this phase so it takes them longer.
But since my break up, I've felt depressed and now actually okay. The logical part of my brain kicks in and reminds me i won't be alone "forever" and that we had a great relationship, just not meant be together forever either.
Just keep a positive mind and allow yourself time be sad without dwelling too much. Everything happens for a reason.1
