A survey I'm doing for my psych class - how long does it take for you to go through the "grieving process" or missing the person? Some surveys show that it happens to most women immediately while men start to feel it a little while after.
Assume this is a break up you didn't want to happen.

I think psychologically men are taught to hold it in because they are seen as the guy who needs to keep it together at all times. (Also the reason why more men commit suicide than women) So they drag it out as long as they can because they think that's the right thing to do. This is a torturous process. Little do they realize that crying will actually help them relief that cropped up pain they've been holding for weeks/months.2

I'm sad as soon as it happens and I'll stay sad for up to a few months.0
