Relationship issues: There has been quite a bit of research done that shows the difference between how these two opposite sexes deal with lovesickness – and whether males or females deal with it better.
Women have girlfriends to soothe them but a man’s vasopressin leaves them alone. A woman can become a man’s “home” leaving them emotionally homeless. And a man can even suffer severe – and legitimate – health crises after a breakup. And that’s just the beginning. There are 15 reasons and counting as to why women handle breakups better than men, and they’re all compiled below.
15. Men Are On Their Own
“Thanks to a neurochemical called vasopressin, men in crisis are more likely to see other men as less approachable, but that same chemical cues women to see other women as more approachable. This is called tend-and-befriend, and it means while you’re being soothed by your girls, the guy is dealing alone – and having a harder time of it,” according to Glamour. This means that when a woman is feeling low on a Friday night after a recent breakup, she’ll call her gals and get together for a night of binging, venting and consoling. A man will probably be sulking, all alone, at home, drifting into a deeper sadness than his ex who is, more likely, enjoying the company of her closest friends.
14. You Were His First
When women hook a “player” type, the men get a sense of what a real relationship is. Meaningful sεχ, deep connection, real conversation and memories that will stick with him for the rest of his life. Before this real relationship, there was nothing to compare a casual date and hookup to. But after a man gets a taste for what it’s like to be pampered and cared for, there will always be comparison which can be the downfall of every man’s happiness.
