Breakups take a toll on mental and physical health for both men and women. It would be unfair to say that only women have the heart to feel the sadness that one goes through breakups.
That is not the case at all. Men do feel terribly broken when their relationship ends. How a man reacts really depends on his nature. If he is a loud and expressive, the obvious changes post break up would be noticeable by people around him, whereas if a guy is shy and an introvert.
He is most likely to hide his feelings and bottle it up which is even more harmful for him to recuperate from the loss and get back on track. What are the possible effects of break-up on males?
Becomes a Recluse
The most common change that a man who has recently been though a break up is getting himself confined to the four walls of his room. They do not want anyone to know how sadly they have been hurt so they choose to keep themselves disconnected with the outside world. at this point in time, they like to stay alone and not be answerable to lot of questions posed by his friends or family.
Feel Emotionally Weak
Next effect of a break up on a man is weak emotional strength. Imagine how you would feel if you are asked to part ways with the most important person in your life, obviously heartbroken but more than that an emotional vacuum.
the person you relied on for emotional and mental strength is no longer around you. It is quite a big adjustment to make and get you accustomed to.
Resort to Drinking and Smoke
Alcohol tends to lessen one’s pain. This is a popular myth among lot of men around the world. they take the help of alcohol and cigarettes to forget their worried.
What they don’t realise is that is is a temporary solution. The post break up phase is a very sensitive and fragile period where a man can start afresh or regress so much so that the damage done is irreparable.
Feel Like a Bird
Not all men feel the dejection and anxiety that a break ups accompany with it. They are the “positive lot” who believes they have been freed from a relationship to be as independent as a bird is.
No more answerable or responsible to anybody, do as you want and most importantly just be you without having to worry about anybody else. Many men in fact enjoy this phase since it really helps them to reconnect with themselves and sometimes with the long lost buddies.
Become Aggressive In Nature
Last but not the least, men who go through terrible breakups often makes them irritable, short tempered and very frustrated in life. Smallest issues can trigger them off. You do not expect them to behave sanely. They easily pick up fights or become way too loud with friends and family. They don’t realise it but people around them do!
