It's been almost 3 weeks since I broke up with my ex of 4 years. Haven't had any contact but I still think about her. How long does it take to get over a break up or how long did it take you?

some say it takes half the time of the relationship to fully get over it0

I was in a relationship for 6 years and we broke up 1 1/2 years a go. It took me about 3/4 months to really get myself out partying again and seeing all my friends etc,,,, but I believe you never really get over it if it was real. However, you don’t HAVE to get over a relationship to move on and be happy. You were in one because that person made you happy and you enjoyed the time spent together. It will always be a part of you and you should let it because it will shape who you are moving forward. But if you mean in terms of getting out and dating etc… If I had my time again i'd do it asap, even if you still love your ex because that love won’t ever go away (even if you fall in love again, a small part of you will have that connection to your ex) so you may as well start enjoying yourself again sooner rather than later!!1
