We live in a place where men are always expected to be hard guys. This means that men don’t cry, and all of that jazz. So what happens when a guy goes through a breakup? Obviously the first stage is completely denying that they’re hurt at all. In addition to that, Ghanaian men also have a toolbox of unhealthy habits that get them through heartbreaks.
Drugs And Alcohol
When denial doesn’t work, one of the other things that men will turn to is alcohol and drugs. I mean, who would want to face their emotions when you can just drown it all out with booze or get high all day. Men aren’t good with feeling hurt and if God didn’t want us to drink, he wouldn’t have created alcohol, right?
They Start Hoeing Around
Another thing that happens after a breakup is the ho phase. Maybe it’s the need for validation after a partner has left them. Or maybe it’s finally being free after a long relationship. Whatever they tell themselves Ghanaian men feel they’re justified for having a ho phase after their relationships—sometimes during—but who’s counting?
They Bury Themselves In Work
A hilarious thing that happens after a break up is that men will start putting motivational quotes on their status. They go full-on grind mode and just pour themselves into business or their work. It’s a simple equation, really. Make more money and she’ll come back.
