Men were more inclined than women to remain friends with suitors from whom they had received a brush-off. https://t.co/KZpU5mNoqs pic.twitter.com/VnQCGvGLw6

Not surprising. The common story is that men do not handle rejection well. Some small percentage don’t. But most men do because we get rejected ALL THE TIME. At least 70% of being male is learning to handle rejection because it is the story of most of our lives. If you can’t handle constant rejection as a male you should probably go ahead and kill yourself because it is just the thing that happens to you all the time.
Women, however, are the ones generally who cannot handle rejection because they do not experience it nearly as much (some basically never) and it’s completely shocking and devastating to many of them when it does. It breaks them.
