I have heard that if a guy has a major issue in his life, he may withdraw from or end a relationship in order to entirely focus on solving the problem or completing the task. I have a guy friend, we used to date, that just bought a new condo and had to move. I haven't heard from him in a while. I wonder if this theory of men focusing on a task and leaving other things that used to be important to him aside, even temporarily, has any merit. I'm talking about things like moving, issues at work, or even getting over a past relationship. Can you address this theory, the scenarios I just listed, and any other thoughts about this? Thanks.

I've just been offered a job in a city in my country. I have accepted it and it means I will be moving to a new house in the city.
It will happen that I will severe the majority of my ties here and start again. The reason is simple: putting all of your energy into living means there is little left over to travel back and forth to your old life. It also means that i'm less likely to feel regret or any emotional fallout from moving.
I'm not saying every man is like this, i'm also not saying i won't occasionally come back and see my family and friends some times but things will obviously never be as they once were. It will either peter out or halt abruptly. That's just me personally though.0
