Break Ups are harder for some and easier for others. It is a gender and age less concept.
Age and gender are mere words in the face of love.
Break Up is rather easy. One text from either side and its over!
Moving on and detaching from the person you love is much harder than you think.
What is my theory ?
- 50-60 years hence no one of us will be alive. If this life is NOT perpetual, how love can be ?
- If love gives me happiness, break up shall give me pain as it is a with drawl symptom. But if love doesn’t make me elated (If I am already happy with my life), break up is just a word!
- Expectations are real cause of pain. Why someone else will think about me and make me happy ? (Barring soulmates, no love makes you ecstatic for ever).
- I assume the contrary. As you mature you understanding of this world deepens and these emotional set backs are much easier to handle than in teen ages.
