  • Because they weren't as attached as she was.
  • I don't know about that, breakups used to kick Ec's ass yo...
  • Women are more sensitive then men, but all men are not like that. he's hurting, but if he show that he's hurting it would be considered a sign of weakness so don't worry he's feeling the same way you are he's just not going to show it's human nature for a man.
  • It is because women are much more emotionally attached than guys are, especially if they have slept together, for it is emotional and very meaningful to the girl but the guy thinks it is just physical.
  • in my case, i think I seem more sad, or at least I feel like it. It doesn't seem to affect her at all, so I guess it depends on people. My broken heart is sort of kicking my ass a little bit. bah ill get over it =)
  • I think guys are just better at hiding their feelings, so people assume they are not so affected by the break up, but i secretly think guys are hurting inside too.
  • That depends on perspective... I'm betting you can find plenty of guys who hurt behind break ups as much as the ladies. However... sometimes I think guys are better able to hide or push back such feelings and at least seem to be handling things better.
  • Girls are more emotionally oriented that most guys. But believe me, guys can be just as emotional.
  • trust me I know I hurt way more than I think the girl does and the reason is is because I will hide how i'm feeling and just suffer alone.
  • I believe this situation might be related to evolution and preservation of the species. Simply put, the guy gets to go on and spread his seed in other fertile fields. The girl loses the prospect of a stable relationship and the protection and support of a reliable mate. This may take the situation back to prehistoric times and the human state as hunters and gatherers, but it is a plausible explanation, I fully believe.
  • i don't believe that's always true. there's heaps of times when i've stopped caring and the guy hasn't. Prob cause i was never heaps keen on them in the first place tho...
  • Girls tend to be more open about their feelings, whereas guys tend to bottle them up inside.
  • I think a lot of people are going to say that it's because girls are over-emotional. I'm personally going to tell you that your statement could possibly be a highly inaccurate gender stereotype. Just an opinion.
  • Because girls are more emotional... generally. We operate from the heart.
  • Girls are more open about hteir emotions. If a guy shows that he is sad about a break up, his "friends" might make fun of him for being a sissy. If he really cared about her, he'd be just as sad as she.
  • I was never more sensitive then the guy that I broke up with. Maybe cause I always broke up first? You know when things are going sour, and its time to get out of it!I am happily marrie now for 15 years..or is it 16? He'll tell me.
  • I think because she knows it was her fault.
  • Because a girl would always be a girl and a boy would always be a boy. Boys tend to be more resistant towards showing their emotions and such.
  • Girls are naturally more emotional, besides the dude in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall."
  • because girls are more emotional
  • Because some men operate on automatic pilot to survive. Others are more sensitive. Those are the real men. The others are just robots.
  • men are like samurai, "Face" is Very important. to save "Face" with the other males he hangs with, he will repress his feelings and put up a macho front, because he was raised to think real, manly men don't cry or show emotional weakness
  • Girls is more on the soft side and more emotional than guy. Guy can hide his feeling more than girl able to. That's why we normal see girls crying than guys. It's the world nature. Not that guy did not feel sad or anything but they are less sensitive than girl. If they chose to cry over it they will do it alone, not in front of friends or family. They choose to keep the sadness to himself and not to share it with anybody.
  • Women are also emotional whereas men are physically inclined
  • They don't men just hide the fact that there upset and women stay true to thier emotions
  • men do feel it but we girls are emotional and we sometimes put so much work into being tru to u guys that after all weve been through u just look at it as if its nuthin.
  • That's just what girls think
  • Not this girl. It all depends on how you felt about the man in question. In my case - usually not a lot.
  • That is total BS. Everytime I go through a break up its the toughest thing in the world for me. I cry, I try to get them back. I do everything possible for them to change their minds. In fact right now I am home from work sick because I haven't slept or eaten very well in the last 3 weeks. Heart break is a killer for everyone. The people that seem to be least affected by it are just holding it inside. For them it will take longer to heal as well as negatively affect their next relationship. I'm excited for this month to end because that will mean I will be close to healed.
  • becuase girls are more otional about things and plus a guy hides his feelings so therefore we never get to see a guy cry and be upset about it! But we all know that they reallly do cruy themselves to sleep
  • men are heartless women are not
  • us women are very emotional and we are in touch with are feelings, men care but they just find it hard to show it. thay can be cold barstads at time. but it doesnt mean that they aint feeling just as bad as you.
  • because women are more emotional.
  • I think it depends on the person. Some men and women are very sensitive. Some arent. It has nothing to do with the gender.
  • I'm not sure that this true--I think that women tend to be more open about their emotions.
  • cos men dnt like to show thiere hurting they like to be looked up to lol we dnt like ppl feeling srry 4 us we do cry just not in front of ppl or atleast we try not to lol sum times its hard tho lol not many ppl have seen me mostly family lol
  • Well, the key word is "seems". Guys get hurt just as much as women. Guys just show it and process it a bit differently, that's all.
  • In general.. Guys are very good at thinking logically. Girls are very good at thinking emotionally.
  • the men are heartless comment is so true. they can mess around with 30 women and never have a feeling for one of them. because their heart is on themselves.
  • i agree! not all men are heartbreakers..in my case, i love my girlfriend so much but it seems like she doesn't appreciate the things that i do for her coz she's always asking for a break up everytime we have a misunderstanding :(
  • Because men have no feelings what so ever lol
  • That's not always true. It's just that guys are supposed to be strong on the outside, so we don't always show our emotion. There have been plenty of guys who have been hurting after a break-up, but we don't show it outwardly as much as women do. Women get together with their girlfriends and talk about it, but guys get with their boys and just drink beer, watch sports, and maybe talk about it a little, but that's about it. Guys don't get together and cry on each others's shoulders. It's just not how we deal with stuff like that.
