How long to get over a relationship?

It depends what your definition of "getting over it" is.

Some relationships I have to be reminded I was actually in, e.g. chatting with a friend and they say something like "oh, do you remember that guy you were seeing a few years back?" and I realise it was someone I had forgotten about.

But the ones that affected me I won't ever forget, one in particular ended very badly and I have been scarred by it as I don't trust prospective or actual partners, so in a way I'm still not "over" a relationship that ended more than 2 years ago.
I don't cry about it anymore but it does affect me.

I only really cry at the end of a beer filled night when I realise that once again I have attracted someone who is either incompatable or unavailable.

Being lonely doesn't help, but niether does an empty encounter.
