Guys what is a respectable time to get over your ex?
I loved her very much and I see no reconcilliation so know I must move on.
I am finding this very hard to do. I think about her constantly and feel sick with the thought of her being with someone else.
I know time heals all wounds etc and have read tips on getting over your ex but I'd like peoples own experiences on heartbreak and how long before they felt better.
It's been about 2 months now and I don't feel any better. I just feel empty and depressed with my life I'm sick of feeling sorry for myself and wallowing in self pity but when I think about her which is all the time I am instantly sad again. How long should I feel like this and when do you know if it's time to seek outside help (ie therapy)?
I feel like my heartbreak is turning into an obsession and I don't know how to stop it. I am not contacting her so am at least not making a nuisance of myself to her but it still doesn't make me think about her less.

No ones to sit here and tell you anything about what a respectble time is to get over your ex. Everyguy is different and can love someone on different levels. Its going to take a while if you were in a long term relationship, but that's pretty much expected between man and women. Don't let anyone tell you you are any less of a man since you can't get over a girl. I was dating my ex for 2 years and it took me damn near 6 months to get over her. I gave her my heart too. It took a lot for me to get over her also. I needed therapy, get rid of her facebook (off of mine), myspace, block her number from my phone so I wouldn't txt/call her. It hurt a lot at first but I got over her. The pain from heartbreak is unbearable too. It literally feels your heart is being ripped. I will admit, I did cry over her too. it took me a long ass time but now I'm able to talk to her about my problems dating other girls, and she will sincerely help me and I don't feel jealous or bad about the guy she is with now. Do what you feel like you have to do to get over her and move on to someone better0
