  • ... of course we get hurt. We have hearts, too. What a stupid question.
  • Yes men get hurt...maybe even more so than women because society doesn't allow men to talk openly about their hurts.
  • Last time I checked they were human. So yeah, they do.
  • Yes,men get hurt in relation,not just women.Men get hurt when they are cheated on,just like women.
  • Men in serious relationships get hurt just as much as women do. They'll hurt and be upset if you cheat, they'll feel neglected and sad if you ignore them, they'l get jealous if you start showing interest in other men. Treat them well, especially if you intend to be treated well!
  • Of course men get hurt. They're human after all. I watch my boy mates constantly being used and abused by women, and sometimes am glad that I don't have to put up with the high-maintenance clingy abusing cheating and lying ones!!
  • Ofcourse men get Hurt. They don't show it though, they should though.
  • Of course men do get hurt. If you're heart is open for a relationship and you're ready for one, it's quite possible to be hurt. If you wear your heart on your sleeve, then it is even more possible. Trust me, it just happened to me. Men get hurt when the relationship isn't so well defined or mixed signals are being sent. In my case, she said she was looking for a relationship then pulled back, then said she wanted to be friends, then sent me signals that she wanted more than friendship. I guess if you're just friends, the guy wouldn't normally be paying for everything, taking the girl away for the weekend, and having sex with her, right? Who knows...In my case, she had a good thing going on. I treated her very well (not patting myself on the back, believe me), but I was really into her. Perhaps I ignored some of the signs along the way, but there were other signs that made me thing she was intereste. She called me almost every night, she asked me to go check on her dog on a daily basis. Ah yes - the complicated piece: before I met her (which she confided in me later), she had been jilted by her fiance. We met in October 2007 and apparently she had been jilted in August. Also, her mom was diagnosed with terminal lymphoma. More facts: She's 27 and I'm 41. I know, I know...you're all saying I should have put up my brick wall day 1. But...she told me to relax and go with the flow. Trust me when I say this, I did so much for her and got almost nothing in return. It feels like I was used, but I always made excuses for her. The reality is that I have several female friends who also lost their moms and they said that the never acted that way to the significant person in their life, especially the one that was treating them well. Men get hurt when they have their eyes closed. Men get hurt when they choose to ignore the signs and they make excuses for the woman in their life.
  • When something happens that hurts us. The same things that can hurt a women in relationships can hurt us. Sometimes after fights, when you notice us playing video games and you think, "well they just don't care at all", it isn't true. We do can and are probably playing the game and getting shot in the head by 8 year old kids online since we can't concentrate because we care so much.
  • holy frikin crappin heck frikin hackin heck crappy frik frikky crap YES!!!!!!!! i should know, its happened to me before
  • Men do get hurt just as bad as women. I have a very close freind that i love incredibly dearly. She is the only one i have had any desire at all to go out with for the past year. I am so close to her that no one, and i mean NO ONE can understand me like she can. i have incredible gifts of spirituallity that she shares. She and I share a mutual relationship of self-growth through spells on eachother that i would NEVER have with even my freind of 5 more years than her. At the moment she has a boyfreind who she never stops complaining about. He has pulled so much crap and flew off the handle on a very daily basis. He had complete control over where she was and who she was with at all times and would go to extreme emotional lengths to maintain this. Like three weeks ago, he moved 200 miles away after he made her choose between that and him staying on the streets. After all this she's willing to wait for the next year for him to come back even though he's not willing to come see her for a weekend and hes 20something but shes willing to earn the money to take the bus out there and shes 18. What eats me inside isn't even that im not with her, it's that he hurts her so bad. She has massive panick attacks in the middle of the night because of the situation and will call him. He won't call back for a couple days. I will put her wellbeing far above my own. It hurts me to see her anymore even though we used to be so close i lived with her for the summer. I cry myself to sleep at nights.
  • cheat on him whit his best frend.. (i know some1 hwo did, it works for sure)
  • Men get hurts much much more than women, women get over things fast. I was so hurt, even now its already 3 years I am still hurt. I have seen a lot of women get over a relationship very very fast, not men. May be I am wrong but those are all what I met. If I can stand the loneliness for being alone for the rest of my life, I will choose not to have a relationship or even get married. I dont think I afford to get hurt again.
  • Yes, we get very, very hurt. I think that's a human characteristic rather than a gendered one. However, I think men are less likely than women ON AVERAGE to place themselves in situations where they can get hurt (the famous male "fear of commitment") and younger men tend to bounce back from relationship upsets a bit faster than women. In middle age, this pattern reverses.
  • They get hurt once they realize you are really gone for good.
  • Of course! Too much emotional sensitivity causes hurt! The men who are more stronger in controlling emotions ,has less emotional blues then the men who are emotionally sensitive! Unfortunately I comes in the latter category!
  • By the way, what motivates the question? It sounds kind of dire. Also, why do people keep negative-rating it? It seems a legitimate question to ask?
  • After their ex leaves them for their asshole of a brother, so yes, they get hurt because I know. My answer is no lie, happened to me. Also to add, she made my heart bitter and not giving much of a damn about anything and less trusting of anyone because I put all my trust in her.
  • I don't know I used to get hurt because I would set myself up to get hurt. Now I don't get hurt. I wont allow it to happen.
  • of course. men and women handle hurt differently though. hell one woman handles it differently to another so each male would be unique as well.
  • Of course men get hurt. Being lied to, used, insulted, undermined, etc. I would Think that everything that hurts a women would hurt a man.
  • Men get hurt all the time if they are caring loving individuals. They get hurt not knowing how to meet someone and maybe getting rejected, they get cheated on, and they get dumped. They are unappreciated for their good deeds, words, and thoughts. They are hurt when torn between what to do and what not to do.
  • of course men get hurt anyone who is emotionally invested in a relationship is vulnerable to hurt
  • I believe you can hurt a man in a relationship if you kick him in the balls...my next best guess whould be if you bit him in the nuts.
  • Never. We're MEN dammit!
  • No...We have no feelings. Don't be an idiot. I've been hurt several times by women.
  • men get hurt when they are betrayed by slutty girlfriends who sleep with their best friends.
  • of course they do..they are human..and they get hurt when they are betrayed and cheated on and emotionally abused...they are just better at dealing with it than we women are...
  • When my ex broke up with me, I ended up having a major depression and had to see a psychologist twice a week, which didn't even help much... Of course we can get as hurt as women, some are just better at hiding it than other
  • if you didnt know men have feelings too.
  • Of course we do. Many men successfully hide their feelings, so it's often difficult to know when and how deeply we hurt, but I have known men to become totally devastated by women who hurt them.
  • Pleasure and pain - be it physical or mental - are felt by every human being on earth. If we were on another planet or another lifetime (or afterlife),then what would be the case, how can we know?
  • I don't know let me check (kicking my husband as hard as I can in the chins) yup, men can get hurt. My'n just did.
  • no, we're made of stone and bitter memories, we feel no pain physically or emotionally when you women walk all over our hearts
  • probably after its over. men can't seem to deal with their emotions as well as women do, so they don't talk about anything and keep things bottled up. so when they fail in relationships, thats when they hurt the most. it really sucks b/c if they could only talk about things than they might not lose what they love.
  • I got involved with an emotionally ill woman over 5 years ago, we had an on and off relationship the entire time, I cared for her as if she were one of my children and supported her completely. She ended up dumping me on Thanksgiving in front of her entire family. I knew she was either BP or had PTSD or something but was aways afraid to confront her. She now acts like she never even knew me and is just plain mean. It still hurts me badly even though I have a wonderful person in my life. I wish I could juts forget about her.
  • Yes men get and in as many ways as women get hurt. Men just don't always show it.
  • What a ridiculous question! Men get hurt just as much as women do. it's all to do with how emotionally attatched you are to the person, the more you're attatched the more you'll get hurt be it men or women.
  • Yeah... Im kind of going through that right now.
  • There are countless networks (which are entirely necessary and I support) to help women who have problems in their relationships, past or present; dating violence, stalking, ect. all refer to women's issues. If a man talks openly about the incredible pain women have inflicted upon him, he is labeled as a misogynist and dismissed as a bitter loser. I have never cheated on a girlfriend, or abused a partner; but I have felt cheated on, and I have been emotionally abused. Never say men don't feel equal pain as women--ours is simply exacerbated by the lack of forums and support networks to help us.
  • men do get hurt, they just express it differently than us. They usually get angry to hide their hurt. They also have a tendency to not get hurt until its actually over (but not always)
