Men also feel terrible after a bad breakup even though we act all stoics and put up a James Bond appearance after a bad breakup —deep down we feel terrible too and do some funny stuffs that would make us laugh years later. A study even found that men are more emotional than women, just that men are better at hiding their emotions.
Well, the guys have had their fun knowing the 7 things ladies do after a breakup, now it’s time for the ladies to live in the man’s world and know exactly how he feels after a breakup.
Put a smile on your face as I bring you seven funny things guys do after a breakup.
1. TELL HIS FRIENDS HE’S OKAY…WHEN HE ISN’T
It’s quite okay for a lady to cry about a breakup when she’s with her friends, but it’s never okay for a man to cry in the presence of his friends because guys feel it’s embarrassing to cry due to a heartbreak—it’s probably more like a guy code thing. Due to this mentality, guys try to act calm and assure their pals that they are doing good when deep down they are probably crying a river.
2. STARE AT HER PICTURES
Most guys still stare at the pictures of an ex after a bad breakup; you wouldn’t know he’s doing that; he wouldn’t let you see him. The funny thing about it is the mixed emotions that come with the picture and he may end up tearing the pic into pieces but he would still rather have his lady back.
3. FIGHT WITHIN HIMSELF NOT TO CALL HER BACK
This one is a surety that guys do after a breakup and this goes on to test how strong emotionally he really is. This emotion usually comes up probably a week after a breakup; he might get tempted to call her back and another voice within tells him it’s a dumb move; so many guys would give in and call her back while many would also resist the urge to, but the funny thing is the urge must come.
4. ALL GIRLS ARE THE SAME
The usual time men come up with this statement is probably after a bad breakup —she wasn’t the same when he was dating her and definitely before he started dating, but just after the breakup she’s just like the rest. Guys really are a funny bunch.
5. FIND A FRIEND IN ALCOHOL
You want to know when a guy loves alcohol the most? It’s probably after a breakup; even guys who don’t take alcohol or who take very little alcohol see the fun in alcohol just after that breakup. Alcohol just seems to be that friend indeed at such times.
6. STALK ON FACEBOOK
Almost everyone stalk their ex on Facebook and guys aren’t left out. A study has even gone on to find that over 70 percent of people actually check their ex out on Facebook and I actually agree with this. Most blokes check their ex out on Facebook and still admire them when they see a new picture of them, even though we pretend not to.
7. TRIES TO IMPRESS OR MAKE HER JEALOUS
Many guys do different things just to get their lady’s attention after a breakup; some show off with a new girl and just hopes it touches a nerve in her. The funny part is he isn’t getting that new girl because he actually likes her; he’s only using her to get back at his ex and make her miss him.
I’m quite sure must fellas have done one or more of these things after a bad breakup. Come on guys, what have you done after a breakup?
