We at Broken Panda believe that men and women can both learn positive traits from one another. But today we’d like to focus on the characteristics that women can learn from men.
8. Accepting breakups in a better way.
When it comes to breakups, a study found that women find more excuses for why things just didn’t work out.

- “First off, hit the gym and go beast mode, your confidence will be raised and you’ll have new goals to work toward.”
- “Start by getting yourself occupied. The busier you are the less you start to think about them [ex-partner]. Set goals and achieve them. Next thing you know, you start to love yourself more than you ever did before.”
