Survey shows: That helps best after a breakup

Serious separation to deal with? Comfort yourself, you are not the only one! Somehow we all survive in the end ...
Separation pain , separation phases , lovesickness - all things that are part of love and life, but which one could do without, if we are honest ... After all, we can even contribute a little ourselves in difficult times that we survive these dips in our happiness curve at least as well as possible - by observing ourselves and finding out what helps us and is good for us. And even if it is certainly different for everyone: A good start is to look at the experience of others ...   

Almost 3,300 people were interviewed

Coincidentally, the partner search portal " ElitePartner " has collected a few for us! In an online survey, the dome platform asked almost 3,300 adults what helped them most during or after a breakup. And as is often the case with surveys, the responses among women were noticeably different from those among men ... 

The top 3 

These things comfort most women

For example, an absolute majority of 54 percent of women found the greatest consolation in talking to friends and relatives after their separation . 39 percent found the distraction through hobbies most helpful and 32 percent were able to go out and partying best to forget their pain .

That comforts most men

For men, hobbies were the top comforters with 40 percent agreement , but talking to their buddies about the breakup was still helpful at 39 percent. But for 32 percent, the best recipe for lovesickness is something that doesn't even appear among the tops of women: do sports !

Biggest discrepancy between men and women

Interestingly, the answer that the men and women surveyed disagreed about - besides talking about the separation - is a classic among the good advice most would give a good friend: a change of type, i.e. a new hairstyle , shop for a new outfit, experiment with a new style. While 20 percent of women rated this as beneficial, only five percent of the men surveyed decided in favor of this answer - if that is not due to the lack of influence of a good friend ... 

Results at a glance

You can find all the results of the ElitePartner study as well as the ranking for the men's answers in the table. According to the portal, 3,283 adult German Internet users who had already experienced at least one separation took part in the survey . The percentages under the "Women" and "Men" columns indicate how many of the respondents chose the given answer.
