A recent survey by Elite Singles found that when it came to being lovesick, it's the guys who suffer the most. Of the 95 percent of those surveyed who admitted to being lovesick at some point in their lives, 25 percent more men suffer from lovesickness than women at a relationship's demise. But why?
According to psychologist, Dr. Wiebke Neberich, the cause could be steeped in the fact that "women are more often the one to break off the relationship, and men have a propensity to overestimate a woman's interest, meaning that they also get brushed off and suffer from unrequited love more often."

I think it honestly depends on who is more emotionally invested in the relationship. I've never been in a relationship, so I can't speak for myself when it comes to that. I've had crushes but I know that heartbreak from a crush doesn't compare to one from a relationship. Based on what I've seen from friends who have had a relationship, I have seen that both genders can really suffer greatly. One thing I have noticed though out of my friends is that girls are heartbroken, but they seem to move on quicker. For men, I've seen that it takes them a while longer to move on again. So going with the question from what I've seen from my own friends and co-workers, it's men who do. They move on slower. than women do.0
