Hi Tinkerbelle,

Yeah...I've heard that same theory. Although, I dated a guy for about 2 years and it took me 7 months to get over him. I dated a guy for 2 weeks and it literally took me 2 months to get over him. Who knows? Every situation/relationship is different.

Another theory I've heard about relationships is: In regards to how long it takes to break up with someone, however long you have been together, divide that by 2, and that's how long it has taken you to break up, which facinates me. It's been true for my past serious relationship. I tend to stick around too long even though I know it's not going to work out. My last relationship, I knew around 6 months into it that we should break up, but it took another 6 months of arguing, breaking up, getting back together imagining that things are great again, and repeating the whole cycle. It's called the honeymoon cycle.

Anyhow, all these theories and such are interesting. I wonder if there are any studies about these concepts.

Thanks for your input!!
