Do men have more power because they are less emotional then women?

Without bringing wide sweeping generalisations too much into this discussion. Do you think that women find it harder to get over relationships because women invest more emotionally into them whereas men don't need as much emotional support as women and seem to get over relationships quicker?

In my experience men are no less emotional than women though they express those emotions differently all the best urban

I was going to comment very similarly to what you wrote... It's not that they don't feel it, it's that they express it definitely.

Behind the macho image that many of them are hidden and often display a lot of sensitive points. Let's not forget they are human beings like us and sometimes underestimate the temper, sensitivity, or their innocence. Indeed, all these things differ from man to man, but I do not think there is any order that is not that something to move it. However, just like us, and they have a high capacity for dissimulation, which most times and a harness to the fullest. You do not want to see them less powerful, less harsh than they seem. Question put wrong, you can not compare two different things, with different functions which together constitute a whole. It's like I put this question: which is sweeter, the egg or honey? Each of the two beings, man and woman have similar features but are completed are not equal. Creationist God made the two as a whole assembly, not two people competing like.

I have had different relationships in my time. I get over it very easily. Normally it is the man that breaks down. So, I can't say I agree with you there. To me, when a relationship does not work anymore, it is time to move on. I would rather move on than stay in a relationship that has no future. But, that is my meaning.

As far as I am concerned,it may not be the situation that you have said. I think the reason that men have more power than women is that the men are pay more attention to the career.But for the women, they just can not pay more attention to their career.So men are more power than women.

Well i dont agree with you on this one, Men can not be classified has having a better emotional stability than women, I hav eseen borken relationships affecting both the people equally. the point of women grieving over it more maybe because most relationships are broken by the men. If such a case occurs and you are dumped by you GF who has been with you for a long time how would you cope with it?? But we cant make any generalisations here as you said, different people different qualities.

I think it's different from person to person.Sometimes I find that some men are even more emotional than some women,but no matter what,in the process of getting along with each other,I think both men and women should learn to be more reasonable.

I don't agree. Women and Men both have hearts. Both can be emotional. Both invest hard in relationships and when things go wrong they both end up suffering. I don't think that you can make a sweeping statement as you have said. Men might hide their own emotions and feelings but that does not mean that they don't suffer. they don't cry in public but that does not mean they got over a relationship quickly.

I do not agree that men do not need emotional support, they do need emotional support. They are as emotional as a women but they do not show that very often just to show that they are very strong. Men are emotional, i do not guarantee all men but I am emotional :)

What I know is that men do require less emotional donation from women yet they still need the affection of women. If women dont show affection its going to make men depressed so they have to assume their share of the burden. I think it goes the same with women. They do not want an overtly emotional man but just enough to make them smile.

Several guys I met told me how they were still carrying the baggage of their past relationships. I have seen many like that. Also my ex's seemed to always come back to start all over. That is why, I feel it is harder for men to get over a relationship. Women can quickly forget everything. One of the main reasons behind this is that women tend to express what they feel easily. Friends offer it to them and also in a woman's life it is seen that the next man is usually better than the previous one. This allows the women to get over stuff pretty quickly. Men on the other hand do not have similar friends who are ready to listen to them about their pain. Also it is usually seen that men go through tough luck while seeking for relationships. Therefore, men are weaker when it comes to the pain associated with a past relationship.

clipsal I think that because men have ruled the roost so to speak at least here in the Us for several hundred years they e xpect to still be in charge and they have power solely because they are men.some men are six times more emotional than a lot of women, why else are there so many brawls in bars and taverns even if the guy is not d runk?men have emotions whether you believe it or not.also men expect to play around, at least a lot of them do and women are a dime a dozen to them.sure they get over relationships faster b ecause for most of them they never expected to be in one that long, women are brought up to invest their feelings and their hearts into a relationship feelingthat they love and are loved and often find they are just number four in a long series of love relationships to be had by this cool calm jerk of a man. Why would they need emotional support when they never intended to be tied down very long with any one woman.
