Time is the great healer. But how long will it take? After much study, this is the best formula for getting an estimate:

**Short Relationships (3 MONTHS OR LESS)**

A. count the number of weeks that you knew the person before the relationship turned romantic, and then divide this number by 2

B. count the number of weeks that you were romantically involved

C. add-up A and B

D. count the average number of days per week you saw him/her during the romance, and divide this number by 2

E. multiply C and D - that's how many weeks it will take to begin feeling normal

*Example: Lou met Barb. After 4 weeks they started dating. They dated for 8 weeks, seeing each other an average of 4 nights per week. Then Barb left. It will take Lou's heart about 20 weeks (or just under 5 months) to recover.*

**Mid-length Relationships (1 YEAR OR LESS)**

A. count the number of months that you

were romantically involved

B. count the average number of days per week you saw him/her during the romance, and divide this number by 2

C. multiply A and B - that's how many months it will take to begin feeling normal

*Example: Dave met Sandra. They had a passionate romance for 8 months, seeing each other about 3 times per week. Then Sandra left. It will take Dave's heart about 12 months (1 year) to recover.*

**Long relationships (1 YEAR OR MORE)**

A. estimate how happy you were (day to day) on a scale of 1 to 3

B. estimate how physically attractive you found your mate on a scale of 1 to 3

C. add up A and B - and then divide this number by 2-- this will give you a number in years

D. subtract one year from the total

*Example: John was happily married to Mary (he ranked his happiness a 2 out of 3. He found Mary very attractive, a 3 out of 3. Mary leaves. John's heart will take 1 ½ years to recover.*

I found this interesting. I don't know how true it is, but I guess we'll find out soon soon enough. lol.
