Most times when the issue of breakups and heartbreaks come up, people like to say there’s a good way to handle the pain and there’s a bad way to handle it. The belief is also seemingly propagated that women handle breakups better than men. So we check out the differences between how guys manage their heartbreaks and how women handle theirs.

What different ways do women handle breakups and heartbreaks.
1. Work
Men often throw themselves into work and careers instead of moping around and letting the pain show. Their way of handling the pain is to do anything that will blank it out. On the other hand, women get really sad and don’t really care if it shows. There are tears, bouts of depression and a lot of emotional show of their disappointment, pain, and grief.

2. Expressions of hurt
Women want to talk about it. Men don’t want to except when they’re maybe drunk. Most times women can’t help themselves but talk about what happened, what they could have done differently and all that. Men just seem to file everything to the recesses of their hearts. It usually takes time to get them actually consider and talk about what went wrong. This actually fits the narrative of men being stoic and often refusing to address things that hurt them.

3. Analysis versus Denial
Women analyse everything and speak of things they could have done differently. Men often live in denial when they get dumped so over-analysing stuff hardly ever happens with them.

I like him but he's not asking me out yet.
4. Time before dating again
Women stay off dating and romance for a while. They want to be sure they are properly healed before opening up again. Some men get out immediately. Most times to use sex as an escape but generally to try and use communication with another woman to block out the hurt of being dumped.

This is why people act irrationally just to have sex
5. Who moves on faster?
The belief is that women generally move on faster than men. Even though they look to move on before women, men actually nurse the hurt longer and don’t take time to heal as women do. In the long run, when men eventually face the fact they are still hurt, the woman has already completed the cycle and has moved on far away from what the man is still grappling with.
