    How long does it take you to get over an ex?

    Towards the end of last year, I noticed several relationships came to a halt, including my own, and at least one person was in a new relationship less than a month later.

    I ask because for me I am still not ready to really date anyone. I put a lot of energy and time into my last one, I just really don't feel like doing it all again at this particular moment. On top of that, I still have feelings for said person - and rebounding is a waste of time.

    So when are you ready to get back on the horse and open your heart to someone else?

    When you meet someone and it doesn't seem like putting too much energy, on the contrary that person gives you energy and make everything easier...

    According to Charlotte in Sex and the City : It takes half the total time you went out with someone to get over them. icon_razz.gif

    It's been 6 months for me, and I'm still waiting for the day when I stop missing him.

    I depends entirely on how much effort you put into not obsessing about him, as soon as you feel completely indifferent to whats going on in his life (is he happy, is he sad, is he single, is he in a relationship, is he hooking up left and right, this was his favorite food, he always did this when he left, he did this, he didn't do that, ad nauseaum)

    Once you get to the point where any of these things become something you don't think about for more than 2 seconds without effortlessly moving onto something thats actually part of you current life (today), then you are over him.

    Next wait 6-12 months before dating again. Hooking up is OK so long as it's only hooking up. Better to spend the time focusing on what makes you happy that doesn't include or worse, require, a relationship.

    Sometimes he'll visit me in a dream. It's unwanted, but it happens.
