Dating highly intelligent man
When a person (male or female) realizes that only they themselves can be responsible for their emotions, actions, and reactions…
For men and women, growth in relationship is in direct proportion to one’s sense of emotional responsibility.
In the case where you dumped the guy, one common reason is that the guy doesn’t want to be alone, he doesn’t want to deal with his grief over the breakup and he doesn’t want to “deal with himself.” When he jumps into another relationship, he can get a dose of external female validation and derive a feeling of false sense of self-esteem and self-worth from her positive attention.
It has its cost though and eventually devolves into a crippling neediness.
I don’t think it’s that guys don’t want to deal with the breakup…
I think it’s more that they wouldn’t even know how or where to begin… but if I could go back and tell my 15-year-old self a piece of advice about breakups, it would be, “If you get dumped, just move on right away.
All they experience is the continuous suffering and they want the suffering to end.
