  • Ugh... this is a had one. I was with someone for a year and half and proposed to at a year. She became my fiancée. Then she broke off the engagement after 6 months and simply ghosted me. It’s now been 5 months and I’m just starting to feel like my self again. I’d say for me and in this situation it’s taking between 4 to 6 months. I’m currently at a point that I at least don’t think about her daily any more and starting to feel like I could date again. I’m not quite ready but I think in another month I’ll be ready to get back out there.

  • Depends on quality of relationship. I had a five year relationship that ended due to abuse, and moved on from that in 6 months. By the same token, I once had a three week relationship that took me at least 6 months to get over because it was so good.

  • Takes me an average of about 2+ years. I spend the time improving myself in the areas where I believe I fell short as a life partner/teammate and honestly just forgetting how tremendously awful it feels to end a relationship, before I'm comfortable exposing my vulnerabilities to another human, most will chew that shit up and spit it back in your face with no hard feelings so ya gotta be selective of who gets the privilege to see that side of you.

  • It depends on the situation. Could be anywhere between 3 days, or 3 weeks. Getting over a relationship is just a question about overcoming loss, like death of a loved one, or loss of money and property. It is relative to the situation and the individual. Some people may adopt strategies that help them heal and move on faster than others.

  • Sounds like this is aimed more at women, but i'll throw in my 2 cents. First, id say it depends on how it ended. 6 months isn't too long, but if it was serious and ended poorly it can affect how long it might take you to be able to build up the trust to be with someone else. If you ended it because the relationship wasn't up to your standards, you're free to put yourself out there as soon as you feel like it.

  • It really depends, but I'd say a maximum of two months?

    I was in a relationship for 10+ years, supercommitted, but we lost the spark and spent 2 years as friends while still calling it a relationship. Was ready to move on as soon as we decided to instead just be single and friends, same for her.

    What I'm trying to say is that it's all relative, and very personal. You can't quantify it, but if you feel ready... you're ready.

  • It doesn't matter how long it takes someone because we are all different and every circumstance will dictate a different time frame for each individual. No two people will have same time frame for the same situation and no individual will take the same amount of time getting over each Relationship!!!

  • @chocolatelattes4 if I should say it was less than a month and I was looking to date. We were together for 9-1/2 years, but the relationship fizzled long prior to our actual break up, so by the time we were done, I was done.
