Traditionally, women are weak and are easily hurt by emotional problems. But a new study published on the US “Health Day” website found that men are more depressed, sad, and anxious than women after breaking up.
Researchers from Queensland University of Technology in Australia conducted a five-year follow-up survey of 2,000 lovers. Some of them entered the marriage hall, and some people eventually separated. Among the breakups, men are more likely to resolve their pain through alcohol and drug abuse. The average time for men to start their next relationship is 6 months shorter than that for women. Men also often try to cover up their pain and rarely confide in others. After the breakup, women can better adapt to the end of the relationship, because they will start to consider the possibility of breakup and coping styles in advance.
Previously, another related study showed that the happiness that love brings to men is equivalent to about 30,000 US dollars, which is about twice that of women. Breaking up will reduce the happiness of men and make them less confident. “In a sincere relationship, men are actually more afraid of breaking up than women, and they are even more reluctant to hear these two words,” the researcher said.
