It can take a few weeks to a few months. For some, it may even take years.
A lot depends on what you do.
If you are still attached to the relationship and hoping that things change, it will take a lot longer for you to get over this person completely.
Again, a lot really depends on what you do.
If you begin to take steps to move forward with your life, you will get over this person a lot quicker.
You really should figure out what you want to do right now.
Are you truly intent on getting over this person and moving on with your life?
This is something that has to be addressed honestly.
It is easy to lie to yourself.
It is easy to tell yourself that you have gotten over this person and you are moving on.
This is what we tend to do as human beings because we are trying to hide the fact that our feelings and desires for this person are still quite strong.
Unfortunately, this lie that we tell ourselves forces us to begin to hope.
Somewhere in the back of our minds, we know that we are lying and now we are hoping that things work out with this person.
If you are in this frame of mind, it will be very difficult for you to get over this person in a short period of time.
In order to ensure that you get over this person and move on in a relatively short period of time, you have to accept the fact that it is over.
You have to allow your mind the opportunity to believe in this fact.
From here on out, you should start adding positive elements to your life that will help your life move forward.
You can start engaging in new activities that will begin to take up a lot of your time.
You could learn how to do something new.
It could be cooking, camping, hiking, exercise classes, etc. You can even start travelling in order to broaden your understanding of the world.
You can start putting yourself around new people who have different perspectives on life that you have never been around.
All of this helps you grow as a person.
When you begin to engage yourself in positive acts that take up a lot of your time, you will not be thinking about this person as much.
In fact, you will get to a point where you may not even be thinking about this person at all because your thoughts are preoccupied with all the activities that you are engaged in.
This is when you know that you have completely gotten over this person.
This process could take a few weeks to a few months as long as you are diligent about inviting new experiences into your life.
This also means that you have to ensure that you don’t continue communicating with this person in the hopes that something new happens and the relationship can be reignited.
Communication with this person on a consistent basis keeps thoughts of this person in your head.
You will find it very hard to move on in a relatively short period of time if you have just talked to this person on the phone and all you can hear is their voice in your head.
Your mind has to be clear for this period of healing and moving forward to work.
The less time this person spends in your head, the less time it will take for you to get over this person completely.
This is where you want to get to.
Hence, you should put out the effort to get yourself to this point.
