Men are from Mars and women are from Venus.

The above is the title of a bestseller by John Gray, explaining the way men and women act differently and why.

Inemesit Udodiong delves into an area of these differences on yesterday’s episode of her weekly show  “Love Sex and Everything Else” where she discusses the way women react when faced with emotional rejection.

According to Inem, who gave a detailed explanation on the matter, the best way for females to handle rejection is majorly by being honest with their feelings.
