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.
