I wouldn't say time. If too much time has passed without any progress we'd like to see, then there's no chance we come back.
We give 'directions' only once (maybe twice, if we still care), if someone hasn't really picked up on these directions (things that hurt us, are important to us etcetera) and one is oblivious about it, we consider it a lost cause and move on. It's not hard for us to move on, sometimes it takes time, but we tend to slow down if we don't see progress. We will always stay polite and keep in touch, but you'll never know what goes on in our hearts and mind.
We also appreciate it if you can point out where it went wrong and how you want to see it improved. It shows that you take (us and) our relationship serious and you want to work on it. I for one, love that.
For a Gemini who has moved on, it's hard to get us back. We will have no hard feelings, because we understand it was not meant to be.... and so we are able to continue talking to you like an acquaintance.
