Personally it is puzzling. I am not an expert on psychology so maybe someone could explain the reason? Is it because men are more selfish?

I don't know, my guess is that there are many factors that contribute to this. Females might be less violent overall.

How does it add up to men being more Selfish, and why would what that end up in a will to commit suicide?

because they use guns and suceed, females frequently use chemicals or medicine to try and overdose and it just ****s them up but doesn't kill them.

Greater expectations and pressure to do better. Men can just be as emotional as women. They just don't show it.
