Women blame themselves for failed relationships and men hold the upper hand in love.

Women blame themselves for failed relationships and men hold the upper hand in love.

Can you remember your last breakup? Did you think it was your fault that the relationship ended? Well, if you did, it might not be about what you said or did. It could be all about your gender instead.

That’s because self-blame for failed relationships is more common among women. Their sense of self-worth is more closely connected to love than that of men.

So, when a relationship doesn’t pan out, women take a blow to their self-regard, causing them to blame themselves. This explains why women are more likely to seek out therapy and self-help books.
