In brief: Absolutely
Women tend to be more emotionally "open" about stress and their stress feeing tends to diminish with "talking" about it with a trusted friend.
Men, on the other hand, tend to feel better about the stress when they seek solitude and dismiss themselves from the situation.This can sometimes cause a misunderstanding between men and women, as the woman could feel "abandoned" and a .Man feel "nagged".
