Why Can't Men Be Sensitive?
I cannot speak for all women as some silly women nowadays want jerks, but I think it truly is attractive to know that a man can be sensitive and not be afraid to show it. I think there's just a softness about him. Society and mainly some male family members like to assume and force the fact that men should not cry or become emotional becuase it will make them less of a man. I'm actually tired of this whole fake list of reasons or instructions on how to be a 'REAL' man. I think being strong and just being in manhood is very personal and serious to a lot of men and think this is one of the pressures of life that they go through that we do not realize.
I was watching the biggest loser one time and I think it was a father or a husband who cried about his scare of being unhealthy, letting his family/himself down, or dying. And when I saw those tears and heard his voice stumbling, I thought to myself what is so wrong with that?
I also watched the Avengers about two weeks ago where Tony Stark wanted to get one last phone call to Pepper when he thought he would not make it back alive. When she was not able to pick up, I saw the pain in his eyes. Somehow that really attracted me, to just know that a guy cares THAT much. It just kind of tells me that a man who is able to show his feelings so openly is able to say 'yes, I do understand how you feel, i can relate' Sure it's just a movie, but still, it appealed to him. And I know that just because a man may be sensitive openly, does not always mean he's a good guy. I guess I'm just here to say....It's okay to feel the way you feel.
