    I'm not afraid to admit

    that I cry. In fact, I often feel better afterwards, especially if it's something majorly upsetting that made me cry.

    Go Ahead and Cry

    It's cool to let your emotions out. Alot of men feel the pressure of reality, which can be so cruel at times. There's family issues, then there's the harsh reality of not being "Rich". So many people live paycheck to paycheck.  Anyways, society might look at a man...

    Men Cry At Movies?

    I thought I was weird and the only one. Then I read an article about men wanting to cry at movies. While watching a dvd  alone at home, I experienced the urge and said to myself what the hell. I just let go and bawled like a little kid. I enjoyed it, but I am glad nobody saw...

    Healing

    Crying can be very healing. In times of grief, joy and deep emotion is very releasing. No one should be afraid to cry .But there is also a sort of crying which a form of selfish self pity and that is not so good.When we cry we need to examine our emotions and motives.

    Its Good To Cry

    People would not see me as an emotional person but I find it quit easy to cry. Sometimes watching films but more in connection with relationships.It is healing and helps other people as well. I think we all need "The gift of tears"

    On The Brink

    While I don't cry as often as I did as a boy,there have been a lot of situations I have been in that have left me on the brink of tears. This has pretty much been going on since I was in my late teens.

    No, There's Nothing In My Eye..

    I do, I have to admit it, and though I'm not as bad as I used to be, I still cry.  I can't make it through the movie Walk to Remember without bawling like a baby lol  I cry when I'm emotionally hurt.  I cry when I'm so mad that I don't know what else to do. ...

    Emotional Men.

    Throughout my life crying was something that I never did. Even when my parents died I never did cry. However, since I have retired and now spend more of my life in the role of a woman (I am a cross dresser). Crying and becoming emotional seems to me to be the most natural thing...
