The end of a romantic relationship can leave people in a haze of bitterness, resentment and anger.
But it turns out men think about their female ex-partners more fondly than women do about their male exes, a recent study published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science found. Women, on the other hand, are better at coping with a breakup and more likely to bounce back, said lead author Ursula Athenstaedt, a social psychology professor at the University of Graz in Austria. Indeed, a survey that was part of the study confirmed the findings seemed counter-intuitive to most observers.
The study findings are based on answers from people who were in a heterosexual relationship for at least four months and who broke up with their partners within the last five years.
In general, men had more positive attitudes toward their ex-partner than women did, the authors found. As expected, men reported receiving more emotional support from their ex-partners during their relationship than women did, and they were also more open to having more than one sexual partner.
While women were less fond of their exes, they reported healthier coping strategies after a breakup, such as seeking support from friends. Women also attributed the cause of the breakup more to their partner or a problem with the relationship itself.
