Is it true that men recovers easily from a break-up than women?

An old colleague said that one can easily move on from the break-up if he/she finds another one to love and or pour his/her attention out? Is that healthy? Maybe men can flirt easily but for a broken-hearted woman, i don't know. Women are too emotional than men. But does that affirm that men can easily recover from a break-up than women?

Men recovers easiy that women? I dont think so. I quess it depends how a person handles frustrations.This situation is not true to my brother.He and her 7 years gf broke up 2 years ago because they both realise that they are not meant for each other.Two years have fast but my bother dont have gf yet.He has many girls calling him but I dont see his inlove again.Sad to see that he's having that flings to any girls.Up to now I can always see him alone, looking far away as if he's waiting for the coming back of his x.I knew he still inlove with that girl thats why he cant afford to love another girl even up to now.Sad that that girl doesnt care anymore. I saw her one time happy with his man.Just feel sad to whats happening to my bro.

Well it depends on what type of person the man is. Granted there are a lot of self centered men who claim that they can move on in a snap of a finger. But the fact is we are all hum, therefore we all share the same emotions! I think that men say that just to impress and hide their true feelings…It’s some kind of unspoken rule between men…..lol…They are not supposed to show their emotions especially when it comes to woman. My guy friends tell me that although they don’t show it, they at times hurt more than the woman. It is harder for them to accept a break up when the woman is the one who chooses to end it. My friends have told me that when a woman breaks up with a man, it is huge blow to their egos! Often times they choose to drink their shame away or act as if it didn’t even faze them, not because they are over it, but for the sake of being a man amongst a group of friends.

I am hearing the excat opposite from my male colleagues. They claim that it is hard for a man to get over the pain than a woman. Woman with all the inbuilt capabilities are able to adapt to the new life easily than a man. But personally I feel it affect everyone irrepective of the gender. Many times people act that they are done eith the pain eventhough it still hurts somewhere inside. Time is a great healer and works for most of the people.

I dont think so, it depends on the personality of the person, some men dont recover easily.
