I recently ended a 9 month on/off relationship. We split a second time and this time it's permanent.
The first time I was pretty open with everybody about the pain I was going through. I felt screwed over. I had trouble eating and I lost a lot of weight. I looked for advice EVERYWHERE.
In retrospect I must of appeared very weak. However I started dating the girl again and when split it off permanently this time.
I'm not as down as I was earlier but I feel compelled to shut my lid and be tough. My closest friends/relatives now, but other than that I'm not publicizing this hardship.
However whenever a woman break ups (when she doesn't initiate it) she seems to let EVERYBODY know about it and that's just fine. It doesn't make her less attractive.
Be honest ladies. Men who are open about their hardships in romance are not as attractive huh?
I'm proud that I've been a tough guy this time.

Men typically are looked at to keep their feelings in check, you know, be the "strong one". However, some people don't realize that a guy takes a break up just as hard if not harder because while a girl will talk about it, a guy typically bottles it up. A woman who wants to get into a meaningful relationship should look for a guy who is open about his feelings, and is able to communicate. Besides that, men who talk about their hardships in relationships (and I've heard many accounts), are not any less attractive to me,...it just makes them human like we all are. However, there comes a time after the break up that you really do need to suck it up, be tough, and move on...and that goes for both sexes in my opinion. Anyway, I like a guy who is able to talk about that...it makes them more relatable.1
