Do Men Get Over Heartbreaks Easily?

This is for the men. Once someone has broken your heart that you TRULY loved, is it easy to get over it? Do you ever give your heart completely to the next woman, or do you hold back?

The men in my office say that women can have their hearts broken over and over again, because they are used to it. But it's harder for men, and that once it happens to a man they will withhold from the next woman.

Boys always replace one worry with another, but girls replace one happiness with another during break up .

We the men have a natural built-in shock absorber that prevents us from elongated sufferring from heart break.Some of us do experience it but we recover from it faster than most women,infact some guys recover in couple of days.

Difficult topic to speak on because I'm there right now. But anyway, I think all men who were in a close relationship feel a sense of loss but it all depends on the dude. Some act like they don't care and drown themselves in alcohol to block the pain, some still act like they don't care but they are really dying inside and wish they could change it, others just lock themselves and constantly feel depressed for some time like some days to some years. But if they were praying for the relationship to end and somehow it did, most will be like NEXT!! So it's all relative.

There's nothing to get over, Simply put, it doesnt exist ( for me and for most Niggaz).

If a girl says she's fed up, then tick/click the next on queue.

it's a game that '2' know how to play.

I'm out

Some men might and some women might. Its all a cultural thing. In Naija men are brought up to see relationships are very functional. I could never stop laughing whenever I heard my Gran or Aunts describe a woman as serviceable. Some/Most Naija men just take their relationships for granted.

But their are plenty of women who feed into it too. Just like you can't make a Ho into a Housewife; you can't get blood from stone. If you choose a guy who is clearly emotionally superficial, how can you be surprised when he's sat stonily faced watching football while you are desperate to talk about the price of meat in the market. He aint got it to give and he aint gonna give it up. If you can't walk away don't walk in.

@ J-gurl,

Give up. . . . . .

Men have better shock absorbers.

They just don't freaking care!

Hence - they have no feelings.

I can only speak for myself, the answer's no.

As for guys that say they can, they probably didn't love their girlfriend / fiancee / wife as much as they claim.

We all have feelings, you can't just switch off like your relationship never happened.

How many guys have hearts or feelings?

Those that do get over heartbreaks over a very difficult period of time.

My friend just got his heart broken and it's been a week yet he won't let her go. That kind of guy is rare.

Most guys get over heartbreaks easily because they don't put their hearts in it initially.

Why shouldn't she get close. The truth of the matter is she'll really never know as he'll probably be all nice and stuff but then emotionally, he's detached. Only those who had seen him in his previous relationship will know the difference. Relationships don't necessarily need to be built on love. Respect is also another big factor. If that relationship ends, he definitely'll miss the companionship but then he'll not beat himself about it. Sh** Happens will be the attitude.

I just like to get into the minds of males. I actually compare what my boyfriend tells me to the comments of nairalanders.

Also, alot of the topics are the same. I'm trying to come up with some new ones.

What does that mean? Does that mean you won't let another woman get close to you?

I second, If you don't feel it then you weren't in love. It def takes longer to heal and I certainly support the part of it rarely happening twice.

Check, most playas once loved truly and deeply (not an excuse) but then the hearts been caged and you just don't have access to it no more.

depends on:

- how long.

- how deeply he was into her.

- how much of his life she became a part of.

Men feel it too, they prefer to keep it bottled up. The unfortunate recipient of the hurt ends up being his next victim errr sorry girlfriend.

Some men get over break ups fast because they were already planning an exit and most men do not get over break ups fast because they either were more into the relationship than the girl or they were in love

The ability or otherwise of men to get over heartbreaks depends on his inner strength. For example, i once dated a girl for 4 years and she broke my heart, it was like the end of the world. I couldn't pull myself into another relationship for 2 years. In the beginning i couldn't bring myself to give a 100% into the relationship but the girl later won me over (You know girls can do and undo whenever they want to). So, it all depends on:

1. The amount if time devoted to the relationship.

2. The amount of resources put into the relationship

3. The Level of commitment

4. How much he loved her and

5. His psychological strength

to me, i don't fell an heartbreak as a big thing. Majority of us has experienced it. I think when a man is heartbroken he doesn't feel anything been taken away from him. Its very easy to get over with (thats for me) but i won't transfer it the another woman immediately.

men do have feelings. in fact they are just as emotional as women but have a better way of concealing it. but when you catch a guy having an emotional episode, TAKE COVER!!!!
