My friend Hannah has been taking her break up very hard. To make matters worse, she Facebook stalked looked up her ex-boyfriend and found that he is engaged to be married. They ended their relationship less than a year ago and she has yet to even focus on a new romance. She wondered how it was even possible that he not only got over her, but found someone else, fell in love, and moved on to getting engaged!
I had to break it to her that it is likely that he was seeing this woman while they were still together. The overlap of relationships is common practice among men who like to keep their options open while keeping a “main chick”. Women do this, too.
Then I also said that a lot of times, men seem to move on to new romances faster than women. We are the “emotional creatures” who get our hearts invested in relationships. Women are resilient but it does take us time to move on and get ready for someone new.
Why does it seem as though men can move on to the next so insanely fast? How do they manage that? Don’t they need time to process and refocus too?
