Guys always seem to have someone else soon after a breakup. I tried dating someone soon after my relationship ended. But it was too soon. I had feelings for him but it didn't work out. Now I feel even worse than before. It was like putting salt into the wound

In my experience it usually has a lot to do with the fact that men generally place a higher importance on maintaining their social life/support network while in a relationship, whereas women tend to go "all-in" so to speak. Women seem more inclined to totally abandon all other aspects of their lives when they enter into a serious relationship whereas men tend to maintain an active social life and hobbies even when in the most serious relationships. Because they maintain this strong support network, they can still walk away from a failed relationship thinking "meh, life goes on." Women, on the other hand, because they are less likely to maintain this support network, tend to feel like the world is crumbling around them in the event of a breakup because they really have nothing else.
In short, men walk away in better shape because they are less likely to completely invest themselves into a relationship. They don't go "all in" usually so it's much easier to get on with their lives when things end.0
