Good morning people! There's just something so exciting about Saturday mornings, don't you think? Well for those of you that work on Saturdays, please accept my sympathy.
Anyhoo, it occurred to me that you, I, we only read and hear stories of heartbroken women. Do a post on heartbreak on this blog or any other blog/forum and the ladies flock out in droves telling their tales of woe and baring their battle scars, each one's story more pathetic and sorrowful than the last.
And then when it's not posts it's mails. Unfortunately most people don't want their mails posted but the mails written by chics currently passing through one heartbreak or the other are sometimes almost as long as a chapter in a novel.
I think it was when I read one particularly long and tear-inducing email some weeks back that I wondered, wait, don't men get heartbroken too? How come nobody ever hears a man talking about heartbreak?
I know for a fact that men get heartbroken. I also know that you guys deal with things differently from the way we do. You internalize a lot of things, you drink the pain away and you bury it deep inside of you.
But I would really like to hear what heartbreak feels like for men. As in, an honest account.
A few guys have mailed but even though I don't know who they are I still sense them trying to maintain some control, still trying to act all macho. It's like "yeah, she broke my heart and I'm hurt buh mehhn shiii, it's on to the next bitch, never loving another chic again. You women ain't loyal mehn, f*ck that sh*t". I'm like; issokay! LOL.
Seriously though, men we know you have feelings and emotions too, more men commit suicide as a result of a broken heart than women do, so it's possible that you feel this pain even worse than we do. I know it's manly not to whine and cry and all that and I'm not asking you to, but for once, let's talk honestly about being heartbroken.
Another thing that fazes me is how a man will sleep with a different woman every month and flirt with chics on bbm and other social network when he's in a relationship and then is shocked and heartbroken when his girlfriend breaks up with him. I've never been able to make sense of that one. Can you please explain it to me?
Women, has that happened to you? Your boo repeatedly cheats on you like you guys signed an agreement at the beginning of the relationship allowing him to sleep with and flirt with whomever he wants, whenever he wants, and when you get tired and say you want out of the relationship they fall down on the ground and grab you by your ankles and swear that if you let them go they will die there on the floor.... Makes no sense to me.
(I can't shake this feeling of excitement this morning. Have a blessed day y'all!).
