Break-ups hurt women more but they recover better than men

New York, Aug 7: Women have more to lose by dating the wrong person but after a break-up, they are the ones who recover more fully that men as the time heals the wounds, an interesting study has revealed.

As men have evolved to compete for the romantic attention of women, the loss of a high-quality mate for a man may not “hurt” women as much at previously thought, said researchers from New York-based Binghamton University.

The man will likely feel the loss deeply and for a very long period of time.

"The feeling 'sinks in' that he must 'start competing' all over again to replace what he has lost -- or worse still, come to the realisation that the loss is irreplaceable,” explained Craig Morris, research associate at Binghamton University and lead author on the study.

Women, however, experience more emotional pain following a breakup but they also more fully recover.

To reach this conclusion, the team from Binghamton University and University College London asked 5,705 participants in 96 countries to rate the emotional and physical pain of a break-up.
