Jy1986usa Posted May 5, 2017 Share Posted May 5, 2017 Hey everyone. Four in a half months post break up. Life still sucks. Still think about her way too much. Still in the "everything reminds me of her" stage. Still in the "I might not ever find someone as good or someone else at all" stage. Today I was bored and started reading articles about break ups and the general consensus was they're much harder on men. There's lots of logical, emotional, and even scientific reasons why but there's too many to start listing them out. Disclaimer- much of below is my opinion but it's based off experience and research. But essentially it comes down to dating/relationships are much different for men because we are the ones who have to compete for your affection. We spend most of our single lives awkwardly approaching you at bars, sending countless online dating messages, and asking all our friends girlfriends/wife's to hook us up with their single friends and mostly get rejected. So when we finally find that special someone that will give us their affection and commit to us it's such a relief because that single life that some people romanticize actually can be very stressful and disheartening especially when you desire a relationship. So when you break up with us among a multitude of other reasons it sucks because once we get over you (if we ever do) we're back to square one and starting over with the cycle of rejection and loneliness. Where with women you go back to being pursued and having the luxury of being able to be selective choosing a new romantic partner. Because the blatant truth is women especially attractive women can get a boyfriend whenever they want. They can get laid whenever they want. Come on it's no secret that thing between your legs gives you the power! Before any women freak out on me I'm not saying break ups can't be difficult for you as well but because of this in my opinion is why you ladies move on easier and faster. And that's why dating/relationships/break ups and everything involved are harder for men because of these drastically different dynamics. And again this is my opinion of course so men and women please feel free to disagree. Anyway I know that was kind of a long rant but my concern now is that I'm going to have a much more difficult and longer time getting over this than I thought. Guys can any of you relate to this? Any success stories that might make me feel better? I really just want to be over all this already. This sucks. Thanks.... Link to comment
