How long does it take for you to get over someone after breaking up ?
How long do you need to get over someone after breaking up / a break-up ?
I think it all depends on the person. A person who is mentally strong and has control over his/her senses finds it easier to indulge in other activities and succeeds in taking his/her mind off the break-up.
It also depends on how often have you undergone such a a situation. the first time is always difficult.
It also depends on how the breakup was. If it was mutual, it is less painful. It is more painful for the person who got dumped.
