I Emotionality In Men Is Not a Weakness

I believe that emotionality in men is not a weak feature, who else agree? 317 People

    Out Of Control

    I cannot control my emotions when it comes to sadness or seeing someone else fall apart.  I cannot comfort them because I too am unstable...I so much want to be there and strong for my friends in a terrible situation ...but I cannot hold together no matter how hard I try...

    If Anything

    wearing the facade of emotionlessness is the weakness. having the courage to show weakness is a great facet of strength.

    Only Human

    I just wanted to say I think emotionality in a man is a virtue, not a weakness. I know some men want to bottle up all their emotions. I'm pretty sure some guys suffer physical consequences of containing their emotions. I know my boyfriend thinks his emotions are...

    I Hate Macho.....

    I find emotionality in men to be very attractive. I can't stand it when men try to act all macho and what not. For instance, a lot of guys tend to just act like everything is cool when it's not - saying that it's all good and what not. That is no annoying. I mean if they can't...

    It's A Strength

    Not being able to feel, or to express feelings, not to ever be able to cry without people looking down on you is very wrong. Why be embarrassed for showing that you have a heart, and that it can be hurt like any other?

    No Way

    I know you men out there like to be the "tough" ones but you know it's good to cry once in a while it shows your human and you have emotions so I don't think it's a weakness at all even though I don't like seeing guys (and girls) cry it shows you care which is good :)

    Men, You're Not Less A Man When You Cry

    It is bullshit to think you are less worthy then another men when you're showing your emotions. Don't lock it up inside. Don't pay too much attention to what other people say to you when you're showing your emotions.  My shoulders are waterproof enough. When you're feeling...

    It Is Not

    I think it's quite attractive. A guy who can tell you how he is feeling is a guy you wanna keep! Sadly I've encountered none. And I mean no men at all, emotional and non-emotional 0_o lol It's because I am such a fat loner

    Love Emotional Men

    I like a man that is able to show his emotions freely. I don't perceive it as weakness. I actually think it's sexy.

    I am a man and emotionally analyzing my life

    and owning my emotions is the most manly thing I have ever done. Tell me, is it manly to be aware of just 10% of yourself? What kind of manly is that? Society wants to keep us men in this state, where we are not aware of ourselves. Where we can be manipulated by one and all.I...

    A Strength

    I know that men have their macho sides.  And in a way, at times, it can be cute. But I love it when a man can also cry.  Not all the time, or in front of the world.  But privatly, when something really touches them or hurts them.  I consider that a...

    Not At All

    I actually prefer the company of a man who is ok with experiencing his feelings. I don't want a cry-baby, but that goes for either gender. lol

    I dont know what it is, but there are times, when I'm watching a show on TV and I will suddenly get emotional. It doesn't have to be an overtly emotional scene. In fact it's usually subtle. If others are around, I feel like I need to supress it. Like I'm not supposed to shed a...

    Hardly

    A man that can stand up, admit his mistakes and faults, or simply rebel against the deterministic ideals that all men have to be jocular and macho, well... that makes that man far more stronger than any of his peers that just give into that stereotypical influence. The man that...

    I See It As a Strength

    Unfortunately our culture doesn't see it this way. We seem afraid of those raw emotions...as if we might even catch it if we get too close. I'm not talking about wallowing in tragedy...more like sharing and then moving on... But give me a man who can feel and *gasp* maybe even...

    Desparity

    My man and I have ended, because of his inability to deal with the abuse I suffered as a child. He cannot deal with his emotions. He can't talk about it, and he can no longer face me. That men are brought up to feel that it is wrong to have emotions - is what is wrong!!! Such a...

    Men Crying

    I love it when men cry. Not because I want them to, of course. I also love to see them happy. :) But when I see a man cry, I feel like he's joining the human race, instead of being in a class by himself with others who deny being human. It is the gentle, quiet men who turn...

    Tears falls... it's a normal thing. Crying woman is nothing unusual. But why crying man is something different? We are all human beings, men or women, everyone needs to cry. There's nothing embarassing in this. I don't think that a man, who doesn't show his tears is...

    Definitely Not!

    if anything, it's a plus. it's good, there's nothing wrong with it. it makes things better. makes things more bearable, makes us understand each other more. Logic is good, but there always has to be some heart in it---always.
