I’ve heard things like “When a guy’s relationship ends, he replaces her.

Recently the subject of guys and breakups came up and Sabrina and I went back and forth about what guys generally go through when they breakup.

It came down to be too much to put into the article I was writing, so we decided that I should throw it all into an installment of “Decoding Male Behavior.” To start, I wanted to write this article to dispel some of the misconceptions I’ve heard in regards to men and breakups.

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.

It’s painful because it’s a belief that something that is impossible is could be possible…

and therefore sets countless impossible expectations into motion.

When a person (male or female) realizes that only they themselves can be responsible for their emotions, actions, and reactions…

they break the chain of seeking a sense of OK-ness externally.

I realize it probably came off jerky, but when I cut off communication, my heart is in the right place.
