Do guys get just as bummed as girls after breakups?
His Answer: “Most guys realize that they lost what was most important to them, but not all of them realize that they lost their best friend. It takes so long because we guys don't want to accept the truth of the breakup. Once time has passed, guys realize that their life is not what it used to be.” – Brian B., 17
Decoded: Once he’s done celebrating a newfound freedom he thought he may have wanted, he’ll realize the truth and what he’s lost: a best friend. Guys need a longer period of time to accept the loss because they are not used to thinking or needing girls as such good friends.
Your Move: The best solution is to move on and find happiness. That’s what he seems to be doing, right? Bonus: acting unfazed in public will have your ex wondering why you aren’t totally hung up on him. He’ll also respect your maturity and maybe eventually you two could become friends. The number one rule every girl should take in mind after a breakup is to keep cool.
