Perhaps there’s no definitive answer to this question. But if you’re wondering how much time it’ll take you to get over your ex, there are widely accepted ways to figure it out—just move on, make yourself busy and preoccupied, and or look for a substitute (for love). 

It’s true that it’s easy to be said than done but most of the time, the next thing you know it, you’re already okay and ready to love again. 

This exact premise was the main theme of conversation during the press launch of Para sa Broken Hearted, a romantic film that is ready to stir everyone’s emotions.
