How Does A Man Handle A Broken Heart?

Oct 11th 2010 at 6:20 PM

What happens to a guy after a break-up depends on who initiated the break-up.
If he did it, then in about less than half an hour, he is already
fantasizing and dreaming about his next lay or female friend that he is
going to hook up with.
If he is the one who was dumped, then that is another story.
His behavior is far different, and normal men (not psychotic) focus on
fighting the soul crushing feeling, both figuratively and literally.
Some men say they never cry, but that is not true.
Men do not let anyone see them crying.
Men often try to work through the pain of a breakup by replacing it
with the much more easily endured pain of painful, bloody knuckles.
Taking it out on a punching bag is one way of releasing or venting
from the heartbreak.
Another channel for venting for men or a way of processing the pain is to
occupy your time on such activities like, playing video games, working out
or binge eating.
When a guy realizes that he let someone special slip throgh the cracks,
it usually happens on a night when he has no plans, it is then
that he tries to make amends.
Little do men realize, it is not that easy.
Some men prefer to binge drink, but often after a few drinks, what
happens is he calls, texts, and leaves messages, begging, rationalizing,
and making promises to make things right.
However, this quick fix normally does not happen, and the girl does not
take him back. Asking for "one more night" just is not an option and
the guy is quickly planning and thinking about the next girl
that he is going to "connect" with.

Search and connect with someone special...try here!

Have fun, meet people and find love!

Really good article and every word is true. I find women can be alot like men, they just don't tend to be bloody knuckle physical and they allow others to see them cry. A good cry is good for us all, male or female. Very cleansing! Personally, I use to run and workout to vent, but I've been married for 22 years. Now I workout to just enhance the good feelings... I don't run anymore, but I love the workout endorphins! I highly recommend a good workout and if you really want to salvage a screw up guys... Get very honest. It's the beginning to making it work... Same goes for us girls!
