From an evolutionary/biological perspective, the basic goal of the male is to spread as much seed as he can, thereby passing on his genes through many offspring, surviving through the next generation. This is basically how all male animals work. (Read "The Selfish Gene" by Richard Dawkins or take a biology course, and you'll see what I mean. )
Taking that into account, a guy will get over a girl because he does not want to lose any opportunities with any new potential "mates. " Obviously, this doesn't directly apply to today's social settings, but it's a legitimate explanation of a man's human, yet animalistic, nature.
It's not easier for guys to get over it then girls, it completely depends on the person. I personally never find it easy to get over a break up and am in such a rut right now. Some guys get over it easily, some girls do and some times guys struggle a lot and the girl not at all.
It is 100% dependent on the person and the relationship, not the gender.
Who said its easy for guys to get over break-up. Most Men just don't wear their heart out on their sleeves like many women do. Men and Women handle things completely different. I have known many women that seem to have no problem with breaking up with guy after guy after guy. For some people its very easy but for others it may not be easy but they are not all about wallowing in it either.
i have a problem with that its not true there are guys like myself who break down when girls break up with them maybe there's not very many sensitive guys out there but this sh*t hurts bad when someone breaks ur heart and you see them they seem just fine but uu kno theyll get there's itll happen to them to...
You can't explain this because it's really up to each individual. It depends on how much the person cared for their "significant" other. For example, I know plenty of men who have cried or felt depressed for MONTHS after breaking up with their girlfriend because he truly cared and loved her. Now this would have the opposite affect if he didn't care about her.
My point being is: despite our gender differences, we all handle situations differently. Some hide the fact that they're heart broken and some just don't care. This can be the same with women. (I know I've been in EVERY emotional state after breaking up that you can think of).
Not all guys get over it that easily but most of them try to play it off cool so they don't show any weakness...another reason why some guys get over the break-up so easily is because they just don't care and those kind of guys are usually jerks
You know why its so easy for the males cos they haven't a heart like us females, and to be quite honest its cos they have other females to fall back on, not like us females we take our relationship to serious and fall to deep in love with the arseholes...
When you can figure that out, please let me know. My boyfriend and I broke up a week ago and he's already moving on... 1 freaking week after a 2 yrs relationship. After he cried and said he loves me, that I'm more than his girlfriend, I'm his best friend, that I'm the most important thing in his life, etc...
I think guys can get over someone easier because when they finally break-up, they thought about it long enough before the actual break-up. It's also possible that they already have their eyes on someone else, too.
Also, and I'm not a lesbian but I sometimes wish I was, I honestly believe there are more great females out there than there are guys. And this may be in reference to the whole biological/evolution theory of that one guy's answer and it doesn't help that society reinforces the notion that a man is more of a man based on how many girls he can have.
And, yes, not ALL guys are like that but it is rare. And even rarer to find a good guy who has the whole package as well. (Sorry, no beer belly baldies for me!) yeah, that's shallow but that's reality.
Actually it takes a guy about three times as long to get over a relationship as it does a woman. Men are just not as open about sharing the fact that they are suffering, just as much, if not more than the woman. Woman are actually way more resilient than men and bounce back a lot faster. Don't let appearances fool you.
