How long does this empty, lonely feeling last?
DP and i broke up a month ago due to him stealing from my parents. We were together a yr and lived together.
I was so happily single before i met ex. I want to be back to that, without this empty horrible feeling

I don't think there is a time frame, you just eventually get over it.
I was so relieved to leave my ex but was incredibly sad at the thought of being alone and my DD's not having a father figure.
I've since met someone else who has raised my DD's as his own and I couldn't be happier but it took a while for me to fully commit to him.
You'll get there.

Even though he did such horrible things, I loved him, I guess i just miss what we were planning, what life was going to be. Not him, just a man that will love us and look after us and that stability i thought i had found.

I think it's different for everyone. I felt better after about 6 months.

hugs to those who are going through/have gone through the same feelings. Its not fun.
I know i will get over it eventually, i just wish i could speed this process up

It's a horrible feeling Although I've never actually been in a relationship or even dated since my exH and that was two years ago. But I can still remember having to go through the motions of forcing myself to live with normality even though my heart was shattered. Unfortunately you just have to stay in the roller coaster of emotions until it ends.
I'm not sure if this will help - and it's probably not the best advice, but I adopted the fake it til you make it mantra in the early days. I'd make myself do all the things that used to make me happy before hand and then eventually they did again.
Take care of yourself. It's ok to feel upset and fragile at the loss of your dreams.
