A recent poll suggests that men and women experience different reactions from their friends and relatives in terms of how they appear when they go through divorce.

Matchmaking services provider Bien Alier conducted a survey on Monday on 538 divorced individuals, half men and half female, interested in remarriage to explore the reactions they experienced from friends and acquaintances about how they looked when going through divorce.

The findings showed that the most common response male respondents (29 percent) heard was they looked depressed. On the other hand, for the largest female respondents (28.2 percent), the common response was that they looked better.

Other responses that male and female respondents experienced were “lonely” and “glassy.”

When asked about how they ended marriage, the highest percentage, 33.1 percent of men, said that their decision was spontaneous or on the spur of the moment, while 35.3 percent of women, also the highest percentage in their case, mentioned that they made the decision after careful consideration or with much thought.

In terms of their divorce timing, 45 percent of male respondents said it was proper, while 34.2 percent said it should have been done earlier and 20.8 percent said it was too soon.

In contrast, the female respondents who believed, “it should have been done earlier” reached 47.9 percent. About 36.1 percent found it was proper, and 16 percent felt it was too soon.
