My close male friend got out of a 6 year relationship (3 years lived together). He was alright after 2 weeks.
A month later he dated a new girl he (and I) have known for about 3 years as an VERY DISTANT acquaintance.
He dated the new girl for only 5 weeks.
5 months later he is still not over the new girl he dated for 5 weeks. He is in bad shape.
Which has more impact/more difficult to get over?
- A longer (years) relationship has more impact and is more difficult to get over.Vote A
- A quality and personally fulfilling relationship (regardless of the amount of time together (just weeks/months)) has more impact and is more difficult to get over.Vote B
- See answerVote C

I would say quality for sure. I dated a guy for 9 months and was devastated when he dumped me.
I dated my ex boyfriend for just over 2 years, and when we broke up, I am not devastated. I'm doing just fine. He wasn't the best boyfriend.
The guy I dated for 9 months was very loving and affectionate. My most recent guy, not so much. So I think that's why.2
