    Why do men move on so quickly after a relationship?

    After a breakup you might see your ex out with another woman or you may hear it through the grapevine he is dating someone else. How can this be when a week ago he just professed his love to you?

    Well, The reasons they move on so easily than women do are: 1. Men are not emotionally attached like women. 2. If he starts another relationship in fews weeks after break up; its either he never loved the woman in question or he has been dating the other woman while still in a relationship with the one he broke up with.

      Or maybe the new woman appreciates him for the way he is!One woman's trash is another woman's treasure!
      Just because a guy doesn't beg to be taken back or cut his wrists after a breakup doesn't mean he's not hurting.
      He accepts it's over.

      I doubt a man's age has anything to do with how he feels about being dumped by his ex. It's been said the best revenge is moving on and being happy after a breakup.

      I have experience some playboys still play around even after they have children and marriage. At least that was my experience with my ex-husband.

    A lot depends on how long the relationship lasted, if there has been several on again off again scenarios, and who dumped who.
    If a guy is angry with being dumped he may decide the best way to get over one woman is to get underneath another one.
    In other words the new woman may be just a "rebound" or someone to have sex with and take his mind off of his ex.
    Author Steven James Dixon wrote a book titled:
    "Men Don't Heal, We Ho"
    Naturally he doesn't speak for all men. However everyone deals with unhappiness in their own way. Some folks turn to alcohol, drugs, or sex while others completely shut down their lives or become stalkers
    In certain instances women have dumped men with the hope of him discovering he can't live without them and it causes him to "change" or do whatever it takes to win her back.
    You hear about this in songs on the radio or in Hollywood movies. The reality is most folks hate being dumped or rejected and are not about to beg and plead to be taken back.
    Women tend to think it's "romantic" when a man does this but if a woman were to do it her friends would tell her to have some pride and self-esteem!
    Lastly maybe men are not as commitment phobic as believed. Studies have indicated divorced men tend to remarry sooner than divorced women. Moving on means one accepts it's over.
    In order for your ex to be "the one" they would have to see (you) as being "the one". At the very least a soul-mate is someone who actually wants to be with you! (And vice versa).
    Whenever someone dumps their mate they're telling them;
    "You are not the one!" (I believe I can do better!)
    Why anyone would care what their ex is up to is beyond me.
    Remove your rearview mirror.
    Your future lies ahead of you and not behind you!

    Because we realize that what may be meant for us is farther away from what was had. No sense in hesitating. Our most unique mate may be hours or days away. Why cry over spilled milk?

      I wish we had that attitude and moved on like that.

    Many men move on quickly because they didn't learn anything from the last relationship.
    Also, men do not always have a reliable support group, which is why they tend to rely on a woman to prop them up.
    Men also carry their adolescent attitudes well into manhood compared to women and women-hood.
    Only the other hand, a few men grow up amazingly fast and are slow movers when it comes to relationships.
