I have my days where I am very joyful and I'm like, I'm done, this relationship is over. But then I get to thinking and my heart starts to feel like it's being suffocated and I'm like, no, I love him there's no way I can be with anyone else.
Every relationship that I've seen come to an end, the guys always seemed more stronger. Why?
I know their hearts aren't made of steel, so how the hell is it so easy for them to walk away and not seem weak, even if they are dying inside?
because I try to come off strong but I'll think of being over and I literally break down to the the point I can't eat, walk, or do anything...
Share your thoughts, please.

Whichever person has the most invested emotionally into a relationship will be hurting the most when it's broken. The one with the least emotional investment usually can break it off easier (with less heartache, or it being as difficult a decision).
Since girls tend to be far more emotional about nearly everything in their lives, they'll be emotionally stressed more often than a guy will. Also, because girls tend to show their emotions far more easily than a guy, she'll often visibly show that emotion to her friends (whether it's happy or sad emotions!).
Do guys hurt after a break up? Oh yeah! When my ex wife left me for what led to an eventual divorce, I was devastated for several weeks. I couldn't eat, had trouble sleeping, work meant nothing. I literally functioned on auto-pilot, going here and there with zero meaning or care. I felt like I was falling for 6-9 weeks in the pit of my stomach. Emotionally, I felt like I was sliding down a slick deep hole and nothing I seemed to do would stop the slide. I found myself crying while watching TV, or just driving in the car. But all of this happened while I was alone. And one of my "friends" simply said, "Welcome to the club. What you need to do is go out and get laid!". Truthfully, the LAST thing I wanted to do was that.
Don't feel like girls are the only ones that suffer after a break up.2
