This can be harder on you than on her
June 14, 2016
Generally, the initiator of the breakup has an easier time getting over the relationship.
If you’re reading this, more often than not, you’re not the initiator. So that will make things a bit harder on you.
The main reason has to do with breakups not coming out of the blue. The initiator, on some level, has been contemplating the breakup for a longer time. This level of preparation allows them to move on quicker.
Secondly, men are often more dependent on their partners. As a rule, men tend to have fewer ties to relatives and friends.
So while your ex-girlfriend might have a network of friends and family that are able to support her during these times, you may be much more on your own. Another reason this may be harder on you than on her.
