Heart Wreck

As we can see here- no one wants to buy a faulty product, would you?

There are a lot of great things about being a guy, like getting to pee standing up. Other times well…not so much, especially if someone was a tad bit careless with your heart.

When girls go through a bad break up there will be a lot of tears, a lot of drama and most definitely, a lot of ice cream being eaten. But at least they have their girlfriends to share all of that with, women are renowned for backing up their sisters in times of crisis.

People who come to hear of her story would also be sympathetic and excuse any of her foul temperaments. Some of the more opportunistic members of the opposite sex would even see this as their chance to show her how caring they are to win her heart for himself.

Unfortunately, society isn’t as kind on the male species.

People in general aren’t comfortable with males talking about their feelings; even writing about the subject of love will raise the eyebrows of most of my peers *twiddles thumbs*

Best part is that you won’t find much support amongst other men either. Not accustomed to seeing another counterpart in his moment of weakness, many would conjure up the silliest excuse to avoid an awkward conversation.

And to add insult to injury, almost everyone would come to a quick (yet inaccurate) assumption that it was the guy’s fault for being a jerk when a relationship falls apart. Sad but you’ll have to agree the prejudice is there.

So men being what society demands them to be pull through the hurt quietly as if it had never happened. Some fully recover and move on to more fruitful relationships, while some others live haunted by the ghosts of their past. Because time will heal all broken hearts, just not the pulverised ones.

So what do this second group of men do when they try to move on?

Having been out of action for some time, they would have cleanly forgotten how to court a lady. Since the safest thing to do when you know nothing is to do nothing, they would do just that and wait for a girl to steal their heart.

But we all know that statistically speaking, he would have had a higher chance of finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.

Thus after some time he could maybe, grow a little impatient and try to woo a girl that he likes. Now it is pretty difficult to describe the scene here in words but it would look a bit like a clown trying to run up a slope covered with banana peels.

Very comical yet very tragic.

But just when he is about to give up and concede that all hope is lost, sometimes, ever so rarely, the right girl walks into his life. The light at the end of the tunnel.

But he spends too much time second-guessing himself and being too afraid to do anything. By the time he makes his move, it would have been far too late, and he would have to be content with watching the girl slip away, never to be seen again…

    Lol, have you wondered if maybe you just haven’t got people around you who are willing to listen to your sad stories? My male friends don’t really seem to have that prob. Those who do, I think they assume it to be that way and so they don’t even try to open up. Like the male ego is there.

    But true, girls do have a lot more support than males.

    But males don’t get so little support as you describe.
