A friend of mine dated someone for less than two years (they were 18 when they started dating). They were engaged and even though they didn't plan on getting married right away, they still started planning their wedding. They broke off their engagement, but he wanted to be friends because he felt bad. They kept talking until he started dating someone seriously, then he stopped all contact with her.
That was 15 years ago.
I get it was a jerk move, but she STILL can't get over it. It's sometimes all she wants to talk about and that's such a shame because there are a million other topics we could discuss. She cries on their anniversary, the day he left, the day they were supposed to get married, any movie with a wedding or divorce/breakup scene.. It's getting out of hand and I don't even know what to say to her anymore! She needs serious help. When you ask her about it, she insists she's over him and she's moved on.
I was just curious how long you think it takes to get over a breakup. Years? Months? Share your own stories as an example..
