It could take as long as 3months...
There could be exceptions, however you are in for a looooooooooooong wait.

That's the point, there's nothing you can do.
Praying for an exception is the best you can do.
What were you expecting...
Like, write a letter to the Belgian government to speed up your application?
Or calling their ministry of immigration to ask them to speed up?
Going to the embassy to tell them to call the home department at Brussels to approve your visa quickly?
Or what?

All I can tell you on this regard is that Belgian bureaucratic procedures are very slow affairs, you just have to be extremely patient with them.

If you wanted a Schengen visa ASAP why didn't you apply for a German visit visa?

I'm going to see someone who resides in Belgium and not Germany, so that's why I used Belgium

Well, you just have to wait.
Next time research properly, because you could have used a German visa for this, especially since Germany processes faster.

OK...thanks...but one more question?
in case of further delay can I retrieve my passport from them and apply for German visa instead??
