Coping with a breakup can be difficult. It really doesn't matter if you are a male or female, moving forward takes time and there is a lot to process. Men and women appear to cope with these hard times a little differently. Today we are going to address a few tips that men should use when dealing with the end of a committed relationship.
First, let's face it. There is a huge misconception out there that women take breakups harder than men. This is not true. The end of a relationship can be painful for anyone and everyone involved regardless of their gender, and everyone handles these situations differently. So now that we've gotten that out of the way, we want men to know that it's OK to actually feel your emotions and process your pain in a positive, non-destructive way.
For most people dealing with a breakup, the period of weeks or months right after the ending can be especially tough. These weeks can have a strong negative effect on all parts of your life. You might have trouble focusing and just accomplishing your daily routines. You have to be very careful not to create more life problems during this time.
Some men can fall into a deep depression. This might cause a loss of a job or grades could start to slip, and other relationships will also suffer. Personal hygiene, keeping a clean house, doing daily chores and tasks will all be neglected, and when you climb out of your hole, you'll have a lot of extra and unnecessary work to do. This sadness can also create substance abuse problems. Drinking and drugs will not fix anything; you'll just forget about your problems for a few minutes.

Some men out there get angry instead of sad. They turn their initial hurt and sadness into rage and seek out ways to channel that anger. These releases are usually done in a negative way like revenge or blackmail, some angry men even resort to physical violence.
Some don't even cope or manage at all. These men just avoid their feelings and they will endure the emotional roller coaster until they can find a new girl. The problem here is that not coping and sorting out your feelings will make it a lot harder to really move forward with your next relationship. Most find themselves blowing up at their new partner because of issues they really had with their ex. By not coping with what happened you are really not letting go of whatever is left of your past broken relationship.
Letting go, moving forward, etc. is the single most important step for both men and women dealing with a breakup. In our next post in this series, we are going to share several tips on how men can positively carry forward and get on with their life without being destructive.
