It depends. The first time I fell in love... ten years, plus ten more years to get up the courage to go out again. This is why I tell girls, love should not destroy your entire life, as it did mine. This last time I fell in and out of love, it took me 4 months to start dating again. I will always love him, the (truly undeserving scum ingrate), but he won't rule my life. lilyfly
