It has been 2 months now, I keep myself really busy everyday, but every now and then when I have random images that pop up in my head or this random twitch of feeling, tears still stream from my eyes. Why are guys so unfeeling and cold? It is as if I never existed to him. How could he move on so easily? How do you guys manage to not feel a thing?

We are good at hiding them and we try really hard to move on but some people can bounce back pretty quick. Same for girls like this one girl I went out with broke up with me because she felt I wasn't expressing my emotions enough then 10 minutes latter she posts on face book I'm single now any guys want to go out with me I got pist and commented don't you think this a little to soon becausemade me feel like I didn't matter to her and like we had no connection well once she read my comment she was at my doorstep we yelled at each other and she smashed some of my stuff then she kissed me and we got back together weird as hell but it worked for a while then we broke up for good when she cheated0

Men in our society are raised to have a gender role that includes hiding most emotions. They also compete with each other and some of them would never admit to their best friends or family that they are feeling hurt.
I've heard that men stay exceptionally busy to keep from thinking about breakups (a man's brain concentrates on one task at a time, so if he's playing beer pong, he's playing beer pong, not playing beer pong and thinking about you).
I've also heard that women actually deal with break ups more efficiently because we prepare ourselves way ahead of time and start to break attachments before it happens; so we're closer to being over him than he is of being over us. (even though he'd never admit to it).1
