Most Helpful Girl
I have experienced both having trouble getting over and on with it... however keep in mind, women more in general like "closure" they like to talk and re-hash and see if there is "more to the story" ( well at least if they are the ones getting broken up with) guys on the other hand, may have emotions a bout it, but tend to put everything away easier at least on the outside... not saying men don't hurt, but I believe they tend to display anger, which in reality the anger is really stemming from them being hurt...

Most Helpful Guy
First, I think it totally depends on the circumstances, who broke up with who and so on... but let's say, when comparing a guy and a girl, both were in love and both were dumped and were in a four year committed relationship...(I think many factors would change the answer)
I think girls would get over the break up faster. True reason I feel this way is because of what I have observed. with my friends, my sisters and myself. Women express themvles and will be really sad and express it and so it seems like they are taking it harder whereas guys bottle it up. Because they bottle it up, it lasts longer as they don't talk it out. I think in 1-2 year relationships my answer would flip flop
