By this I mean stop following them, stop reading and commenting on their posts, stop trying to insert yourself into their lives, and basically, just give up and move on?
What do you consider to be an appropriate amount of time to hold on?
Have you ever held on longer than was probably healthy or maybe you have been on the receiving end of this?
Tell me your experiences!

The moment one of you says you don't see a future, thats when you need to start giving up and moving on. Start working on letting go.
I say "start to work on it" because ending all contact at once doesn't always work, its too much of a big change in a small amount of time, and can make it even harder than it needed to be. It has worked plenty of times for me, but not always. Listen to yourself, and whatever you need to do to slowly make that transition to completely letting go, as long as you understand that its not going anywhere and there's no hope left I dont see this failing.
