Oh yes! Absolutely without pausing for thought,every guy has been devastated at least onceifnot many times. It might come as a shock to you but men are believed to suffer from break ups more because they suppress their emotions. Since when was it that feeling heartbroken was gender specific? It’s a necessity in a man’s nature to have to appear strong when all he feels isweakness. Even though they might not show it because they don’t stay up all night crying, deep down they have their own way of dealing with it and that’s the ‘I’m So Mad I Could Care Less’ Reaction in front of everyone.
Getting Away With the Boys “Guys Night Out”
First thing a guy does is call his friends. It’s common for guys to seek out company to keep their mind distracted. They don’t usually talk to their friends about their breakup or the pain they aregoing through but the company of their friendsjust helps in distracting them.

Most men go out on a drinking binge to ease their pain after a break-up. These guys are looking for an easy way to feel better, and since they don’t feel comfortable showing their weakness in front of their friends, they let alcohol do the cheering up for them.
Acceptance and the One Night Stand

They start flirting again, begindating again or just go about having casual flings in an effort to ease the memory of their ex.

Take To Physical Workouts
Guys have been known to hit the gym with vengeance to handle the pain of a breakup. The physical pain of weight lifting is used to offset the mental pain of memories
