I Emotionality In Men Is Not a Weakness

I believe that emotionality in men is not a weak feature, who else agree? 307 People

    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 :)

    But We Can Forget How Powerful We Are....

    ...when we concentrating on how weak we feel, and not see how much of an effect we have on the woman/girl we love. If we can't keep our emotions controlled, so we can plan our actions, then we can do alot of harm to the person we are having these...

    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...

    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...

    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?

    If Anything

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

    It Takes Strength to Show Vulnerability

    There's something beautiful about being able to look into someone's eyes and be let into their world in just that one glimpse... Even more so when it's a man that is letting you in.  We are taught to hold things in, letting your emotions out is for women to do.. ...

    "Thank You"

    Not just a man who shows and shares his emotions, but one that understands that anger in not the emotion he should show to others to cover up the rest of his emotions. For the first time in my life, I am in a very sweet relationship with a man that is very emotional and not...

    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...

    I'm Like That

    I'm a guy who doesn't really express emotion but when I have to I do. It's like love, in movies love is considered a weakness to the hero or warrior by the villain but in the end the hero figures out that love is a strength not a weakness. Us guys are pressured by society that we...

    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...

    I Am Not A Terminator, I Am Human.

    Its not always about that. Its about letting the people around you see that are a human being rather than an object. Its more to me about being honest by showing what you feel on the inside to the outside. You can just stand there and feel nothing. Or display another emotion...

    And I use caps to emphasise, just in case anyone thinks I am shouting at them - LOL! I soooo think men who can show emotions, and be real, are stifled into thinking this is a weakness by stupid stereotypes. Mean who can cry, or laugh like they really mean it, or say words with...

    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

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
