Who moves on from a breakup faster? Men or women? (assuming a serious relationship)
I read somewhere that women are hurt more right after a break up, but men feel the breakup later and for a longer time
- MenVote A
- WomenVote B

I see all these posts about EXes... Why does my ex not like me? This and that about an ex... should we get back together...
An EX means.. in the past. In my life, after any break up, an EX is out of my mind. I move on almost immediately and never think of, try to contact, check up on, etc...
Breakups happen for a reason...
I'm not talking about someone who moved away... I'm talking about relationships that ended due to cheating, abuse, incompatibility and such...
Who CARES about an EX? Who cares about what an EX thinks of them?
Then "breaks"... what's that all about? all this is is an admission you can't commit in a relationship. Taking a vacation from a relationship isn't going to fly.
ALSO... getting back together after a breakup.. or chasing someone to get back together... sorry folks, the same issues are gonna be there.
This "closure" What's that about? No such thing... So what? It's over.. there is your closure.
Move on... where you found one guy/gal, there will always be more.2

It depends on the individual. An emotional person will have longer than a rather cold person and the other way 'round. The person who wanted to continue the relationship will most likely also be sadder than the one who wanted to break up.
While I don't have much experience in that area I daresay that the situation described in your question is because women usually cry out their sadness with their friends while men need to be "tough" and thus hold it in. Most of the people with heartbreak I usually see at work are men who just want to talk about it.1
