It's not just a breakup, but a loss that can take weeks, months and, sometimes, years from which to recover.
While we immediately think of a woman on her couch making love to a pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream, each person deals with their despair in their own way and, surprisingly, drowning in carbs isn't on the top of the list.
The new guy is so very different to anyone I’ve ever dated before, and I know this is a good thing, on so many levels.
But my question is this – firstly, how can I really uncover whether this is a rebound thing, or if the feelings might be genuine, and secondly, because I am so aware that I really needed to ‘break the mold’, how do I evaluate if this is not just the motivation for something new.
The best you’ll get is a 51/49 breakup — somebody always wants it a little more than the other. We know where the “X’s” are, where the buried treasure lies. Whether you broke our heart or vice versa, you are always with us. It’s not even past.” The same goes for relationships. I still think about every ex-girlfriend I’ve ever had, and I always will. Since the breakup we had zero contact and in this time I have become friends with another guy.Only friends, only platonic, and I’ve been really upfront about my emotional position.Oh, I wish I had the courage to call YOU and tell YOU! We don’t lobotomize ourselves, or erase you from our brain. A certain woman in my life wants to know what guys are thinking when a breakup goes down. The real question she wanted to ask is, “Why don’t guys talk about what they’re thinking when they breakup, either to friends or to the woman wronged? Because we are knuckle-dragging, gorilla Frankenstein’s with concrete cinder-blocks for hearts. I mean, I realize you probably hoped the answer would be, “We’re thinking about YOU! How much we regret everything we ever did to lose YOU!
