i think in some ways it can be easier for women because a bit part of getting over someone is validation that you are still worthwhile to the objects you desire. and since women are more likely to be approached by men it can go a long way in re-affirming their self worth after a break up
I've consoled a lot of people with broken hearts in my life, both men and women, and also suffered my own devastating one with a fiance.
I haven't really noticed any difference between the two genders. When they love someone and put so much work into a commitment and build dreams of being together forever, the heartbreak that follows tends to be devastating regardless of whether you're male or female.
Talking to these troubled people, they use the same kind of language, same kind of words, have the same kind of feelings of emptiness, detachment from the world, depression, etc. I never found one gender to be particularly different from the other.
A difference I think for women is that broken hearts do breed desperation in both genders. A desperate woman might get male attention pretty easily, albeit not the type she desires. A desperate man generally is going to repel women away from him, so a brokenhearted man might further fuel his own desperation by the lack of female attention he receives during that period.
Men fall harder for women from what I've seen. Women can just move onto the next guy easily. there's always plenty out there. Men dont have that luxury unless they look like brad pitt or are loaded. I've seen some very cold, distant women who just sneer at a guy with his heart in his hands. I've seen women totally distraught over losing a guy. I honestly think it doesn't matter what you are guy or girl. Men and women are dofferent versions of the same thing obviously. We're not totally alien to each other or we'd never attract each other. Its just down to the person. You meet ice cold men and women and likewise you meet warm and emotional men and women
Men should, at least in theory, as they have higher testosterone and less estrogen than women, which makes them less emotional. Sadly these days most men aren't much of a man and behave like little emotional girls.
I had a life insurance salesman tell me it takes women about two years after the loss of her husband to start dating whereas it takes men around a year. It has to do with how women are more guided by their emotions than men so they hang onto the love longer than us logical males do.
I generally don't hear about guys still thinking on an ended relationship, and even in Hollywood it's mostly women who write songs about having "moved on," but if you're writing about it then you haven't really moved on cuz you're still thinking on it.
Guys can disengage a lot easier I think. I know for me, it can actually be a relief when you're over it. Women I think feel that something was lost or something.
Never been in love before and to me its all a load of crap anyway, love only exists if your tall, model looking and making $$. Women love men conditionally. Sorry if I sound cynical, I'm not just more of a realist who does not buy in to this romantic rubbish. You should reword your question to "after being in a relationship" which makes more sense.
I was just watching a Subway ad where the guy's like "Hey I need something to help me get over my girlfriend leaving me" and the girl coincidentally steps in and says "I need something to celebrate with". Suffice it to say, girls move on faster. They're usually with a new guy within a week or two.
I may sound hard & cynical , but have very quickly moved on , often the next day. What's the use of pining for something / someone that's now gone from your life , like it or not , you have to move on. The advantage women have is that they can very easily get a " replacement " man. The reverse is the polar opposite , the average woman is not too keen on the average man , most men are single for months , often years , between relationships.
Women process things better, usually unless they dint lol but in general id say Women. Men definitely talk like they do but they tend to bring all sorts of baggage and resentment and mis test and bullshit to the next relationship bc they never fully accepted what happened.. they also look for rebounds more often which a;so intruders with processing. it feels better bc it looks good bu it doesn't allow you time to process and heal.
of course if she or he didn't care in the first place its not such a big deal. im referring to people who cared.
None, it's actually not about the sex but it's actually basing on the person and how they handle differ situations. Love is love and if it was real it will take awhile to heal so therefore at some point in time it hurts everyone maybe not as much as it would take a huge impact on the person sitting next to you but there is no moving on "faster" if the love was real. Even though if you heal there is always a special place either in the mind or heart for someone you love or loved. It''s a step by step process and maybe it may take one minute ahead till someone moves on and the other may be in a process of reaching that stage but there is no race on what takes a toll on us. We all fail some way whether one crosses the finish line of getting over someone or not.
Guys. Now let me explain why. to me women fall into infatuation much faster and confuse infatuation with love. moving on its women, generally her girls take her out to get drunk and laid or she just wallows in pitty for a week and gets over it.
I think guys act like they don't care then come back after a month, realising what they've lost. Women, on the other hand, show their emotions straight away and get over it gradually, therefore healing faster.
i move on the minute it's over. And i don't go through that depression and over eating phase that a lot of people apparently go through. I"m not heartless, i just know what's worth spending my grief on.
I say men because men go straight for the next girl for sex. Women have to get over a man. We spend time and dedication to our guy but when the break up comes we have to analyze it all. Also depends on how much we felt for the guy.
