What has been the average grieving period for the breakup of a commited relationship? I kind of feel bad because I have given up any hope of getting back together and, in my mind, have moved on. I am not angry. I am not actively seeking a new relationship, but I have let go.I didn't mention she initated the break up one short month ago.

Then, Sweetie, you should be happy. It is different with everyone. It all depends on your mind, and some people hold on to years for something they will never have again and torture themselves about it. Also, the fact that you feel bad enough about letting go to ask this proves that you're a good person. So, dont beat yourself up for it. Continue with your life and do what you have to do.

i don't think there is a predetermined time frame that you must abide by if you have moved on and the other party hasn't it doesn't make you bad it just makes you differ ant from them,besides if you broke up there must be a valid reason dint second guess yourself you will be okay

One might be able to calculate an average time, but i don't think it would mean much. for instance, some committed relationships are a LOT less committed than others.Sometimes one person has moved on emotionally before the other person even knows there has been a breakup.If you aren't angry, if you don't want the other person to feel bad, if you don't want them to miss you and regret the break-up -- you are right, you have moved on. Does it matter if it took you more or less time that the statistically average person, someone who does not actually exist?
