I know some manage to with time apart and effort but I'm curious to see as other people can handle breakups if they weren't mutual. Please explain why you can or can't!!

Unless it is a one-night-stand, a brief hookup, or "oops, drank too much" there can be a deep emotional investment. After all, we fall in love, want to fall in love, feel connected and cared for. It can be emotionally risky to take the plunge into a relationship. But when one partner wants to break it off and "just be friends" there is a great emotional disconnect. (Lest I sound too preachy) if you were having sex it is often harder to let go. Sex strengthens the emotional bond. So if the other person is deeply invested in a relationship, it can be impossible for him/her to see the relationship in any other context. If she/he is really into his partner, one can't just turn that off.0
