Breakups have a tendency to really inflict significant damage to a woman. This is especially true if she was so invested in the relationship and her ex. And no one can really blame a woman for reacting to a breakup in a negative manner. Whenever you fall in love with someone and you get into a relationship together, you have a tendency of getting your hopes up.
You get so excited at the thought of finally being in love with someone who loves you as well. And you might think that this is your great love story manifesting itself in your reality. However, reality has other plans for you after all. You start to understand that relationships aren’t so easy after all. You discover that even though you love one another, you don’t have what it takes to make things last. And when you discover that you both have to break up, it can be very devastating.
You might know that breaking up is the right thing to do. And in that case, you have some sense of closure. You know that you just weren’t met to be with one another. But that doesn’t mean that you are immune some certain uncharacteristic behaviors after the breakup. In fact, here are 10 of the common things that women tend to do after breakups.
1. Get wasted on alcohol.
Alcohol has a tendency to attract a lot of people who are dealing with personal demons – and women who are going through breakups aren’t really immune to that. It’s always tempting to turn to alcohol just to let go of your inhibitions for a little bit. It’s a form of escaping from reality.
2. Obsess over reminders of the failed relationships.
We’ve all heard of girls driving past their ex’s houses in the past. There may be some girls who continue to wear any clothes that their ex might have left at their apartments. There are some girls who wear perfume their ex might have worn just to remind themselves of what their exes smelled like.
3. Stalk her ex and his new beau on social media.
It might be unhealthy but a lot of girls just can’t help it. They want to update themselves on what is happening in the lives of their exes. They want to know whether their ex-flames are happy or not and whether they’ve started dating again.
4. Write usually awful poetry.
It’s always helpful whenever people engage in writing as a way of coming to terms with their feelings. It’s a great way to express your feelings in a very vulnerable and honest manner. However, just because you do write about your feelings doesn’t mean that it’s always going to be good.
5. Stop hair grooming – and not the hair on the head.
Whenever girls are really invested in their relationships, they do whatever they can to make sure that they are attractive in the eyes of their partner. And when she gets out of the relationship, she lets loose a little bit. And a lot of times, that means that she stops shaving throughout various parts of her body.
6. Badmouth her ex’s sexual performance to anyone willing to listen.
As a way of getting over her ex, she’s going to try to convince herself that he was the worst thing to ever happen to her – even if that means going below the belt every once in a while. And she does this by telling her friends about how terrible he used to be in the sack.
7. Go through a drastic change or reinvention of herself.
A lot of girls will see a breakup as an opportunity to emerge into a new life. And that’s a very healthy way to look at it. And to commemorate this new life, she might go through a very drastic change whether in behavior or physical appearance.
8. Motivate herself to do things that she has always wanted to do.
A lot of times, a girl is going to put a lot of her wants and need to the side in favor of the relationship. But once she is out of that relationship, she will finally have no reasons not to pursue her deepest desires and dreams. That’s why it’s normal for a girl to do a lot of the things that she has always wanted to do but never could.
9. Get sexually active almost irresponsibly.
Sometimes, a lot of men will damage their women so much that it leads these girls to go into sexual overdrive after the breakup. And that isn’t always going to be healthy. It’s okay to have an active sex life, just make sure that you’re being safe and responsible about it.
10. Learn so much more about who she really is.
And at the end of the day, a breakup is always an opportunity to go back to a person’s individual foundation. And that’s what a lot of girls go through after a breakup.
