  • It depends on the guy and the particular relationship. But, my theory is women focus and will think about it a lot more than most guys will, so that's why it seems like it "takes longer"

  • Studies show that women get over breakups far, far quicker than men do. They also are the ones to dump the other person in the majority of relationships.

  • I never missed them... I see all these posts about EXes... Why does my ex not like me? This and that about an ex... should we get back together...

    An EX means.. in the past. In my life, after any break up, an EX is out of my mind. I move on almost immediately and never think of, try to contact, check up on, etc...

    Breakups happen for a reason...

    I'm not talking about someone who moved away... I'm talking about relationships that ended due to cheating, abuse, incompatibility and such...

    Who CARES about an EX? Who cares about what an EX thinks of them?

    Then "breaks"... what's that all about? all this is is an admission you can't commit in a relationship. Taking a vacation from a relationship isn't going to fly.

    ALSO... getting back together after a breakup.. or chasing someone to get back together... sorry folks, the same issues are gonna be there.

    This "closure" What's that about? No such thing... So what? It's over.. there is your closure.

    Move on... where you found one guy/gal, there will always be more.

  • Not really. Depends on the level of feelings. For me it was immediate. And got very very bad. Then eventually less over time.

  • No, we take less to move on. Why would you miss someone 3+ months after breaking up? It's been over for months.

  • It depends on the relationship, and who ended it. If it wasn't a happy relationship or the guy ended it, then he might not miss his ex at all

  • No, because every person is different. Some girls can quickly get over breakups and some guys cannot. There is no set formula based on gender.

  • Usually men take longer to miss the person while Women deal with it right after breaking up and get on with their life with the passage of time.
