I Emotionality In Men Is Not a Weakness

I believe that emotionality in men is not a weak feature, who else agree? 308 People

    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...

    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...

    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

    "Thank You"

    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 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

    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.

    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...

    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'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?

    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...

    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...

    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...
