Are Breakups Worse For The Man?

Contrary to popular belief, a recent scientific study suggests that men suffer more from romantic breakups than women do.

“…research showed that though men act tougher and are less likely to outwardly express their distress, rocky relationships tend to have a stronger direct impact on their mental health than on women’s state of mind.”

Though it may sound wrong at first, if we look at this through the perspective of masculine/feminine energies it seems very obvious.

Men are driven by masculine energy and the primary driving force in male energy is direction in life – a mission. In a relationship most men tend to focus on their partner as their mission, so loss of a relationship equals a failure of that mission.  Therefore, when a man goes through a breakup it becomes much more than just his heart that’s at stake.

In your experience have you found this true?


  1. After being in relationship with him for nine years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email is (spirituallove@hotmail. com) you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.

  2. thanks for sharing. I would like to hear more about why men won’t go back with a woman who broke up with them, but a woman will go back with a man who broke up with her.

  4. I briefly read what was written with exception of old man married for 24 years. All of you have no clue and have never felt it. WOW What a trip, you can’t speak on something as strong ad passion. If you’ve never felt it. It’d strong and no, you’re all wrong. It comes from the person who puts his partner on a peristaltic and gives her the world and all thirty heart. She hurt me emotionally, spiritualy, in the worst way possible, straight. Through my heart without even caring how it would affect me and my kids because we had a blended family that did wasnt loving or caring, her end. My kids are little and dint really like to see their daddy cry. How many of you have seen or have had a 9yr old and a 7yr old console their father because he is suffering from a stab, twist, jab a little deeper inti the heart of her passionatr parter, lover, and her friend who made her happier than anyone one else prior to me. But unlesd ur my shoes living in a homeless shelter for so many reasons explains the 5 or 6 nervous break downs in the last twenty for houts kuz of failure of returning to a normal enuf life to just be a littlr hapy. Believe in love once more is very hard. Ony someone with experience wt experience can relate. I bet that Dt. PHIL had no clue either as to how it really feels like. Thank you, Leo Duarte jr

  5. I lost 40lbs the first week she left. Even today I. Cried for her and I’m already in another relationship. I doubt anyone here has felt it except me. Answer me this how many. Of you are. Homeless with kids, I am. Today’s. 10/9/12 since. 7/2/12 mine. And my kids life. has been. Upside. Down and. I’ve known why but I just. Read this article that confirms why it’s. Been. So hard. To be me again. The pain is almost gone but its still very strong. Strong. Enough that I admitted to my new partner that sexually yea she rocked my world. But replacing her no not. Even close. That sucks kuz basically I’m always gonna sufer from her loss unless my new partner intimately and spiritualy connects with me. I felt the moment she cheated on me. How many of. You have even come close to that idk but I know it’s still alive and strong because I’ve heard elder ladies in thier. Late 50s and 60s comment about me being the only Guy at the shelter who has more than. A clue, I know how to use it and show it through words that I’ve seen make a room of guys and girla melt when I described the powerful feeling that had me and Liz doing stuff that would scare all of u out of your panties. But so it wont sound so bad or cheesy,even. Our relationship was one of those perfect relationships that was perfect until some jealous people who acted like friends convinced her that I wasn’t good for so she left me for drug pusher who used drugs as a way of paying a prostityte to say I had sex with her. And reeled in Liz with that when he was the consumer who paid for sex, he fucked her and left me and when I found her she admitted by saying. This with intent to hurt me, “Ya I fucked him” , now how does that feel, payback s a bitch. Like WOW it still hurts like it was yesterday. The. Ironic part of this story is that I was the only guy who loved her unconditionally and made her. Happy because. She. Was always abused in her prior relationships. Seriously, doctor. Phil should interview me

  6. I think breakups come even depending how long a couple has been together.
    The longer the relationship the more hurtful it will become. Memories will stay and especially after a breakup because you tend to remember mostly about the good things of that person rather than the bad. For what it’s worth, and how to recover, when it’s over, move on… take time for yourself, clear your mind and know that there are other people for you. I always hate when you hear about relationship breakups and both sides have excuses for one another. careers, life style etc should not inflict with the one you love. Infidelity, adultery and other conflicts of selfishness should also not be part of an excuse. if both sides actually work at a relationship then relationships become fun.

  7. I was recently seeing a girl for a couple of months but live just a couple miles from each other and spent every night together, went on a trip with our kids, and met all her family and friends. I quickly started having feeling of love for her and she broke up with me and started seeing someone else like it was nothing. I didn’t eat or sleep for days and had horrible anxiety and finally went to the dr and am on antidepressants and am still really struggling. Most of all I’m just extremely embarrassed for acting this way towards her while her and her friends/family are probably looking at me like I’m some kind of crazy nut case.. I’m 36 years old and have been through something like this twice before and it has always been effortless for the woman to move on. This website makes me feel like I’m not alone.

  8. From my experience, I disagree, partly because my last boyfriend seemed to have absolutely no problem professing his love and making all kinds of promises and then walked away when everything was going perfectly. He came back to try to make things work out but it turned out that he was still lying. He has moved on and I am the one who can’t sleep, eat and cry myself to sleep every night. I have always watched men (friends and gfs exes) who ran to another woman as soon as they broke up. They sure didn’t seem all that hurt or broken up about their break ups. I suppose that it really depends on each individual person, male or female.

  9. Men are supposed to be strong and logical, while women are soft and emotional. In my experience of relationships break ups of some of my male friends, they have virtually gone through an emotional break down.

    Their wives I found, recovered much quicker because they had a powerful inner resilience. They had to see to their children,the home,and come up with solutions to finance worries.

    The men on the other hand seemed more concerned with their own well being,and seeking sympathy over the break up.

  10. This is generic. I’m just seeing much more of it lately. It is at least a informative article and I’m not degrading it, I’m just saying its too common.
