- I'm a crier. Sit me at a wedding or funeral and the tears start falling (doesn't matter if I know the bride/groom or deceased).
I cry at over a touching letter received, a very kind heartfelt word, some commercials.. just about anything. One shocker for me is I did NOT cry while watching The Notebook. I would have but someone told me I wouldn't just need a Kleenex, I would need a dish towel for the tears. I held back... forcing myself to be stoic.
When I saw a tear in my dads eye at my wedding, I was so touched, until he told me he had had a small skin cancer removed and it wasn't a tear but ointment. Still don't believe that story. Don't want to.
My husband has cried and the most touching was when I saw tears after the birth of each of our kids.
If my husband cried as easily as me... uh, different story. It would be a major turnoff for me. A man who shows emotion rarely is a man who you know is touched deeply. A man who cries at the drop of a hat is just a big ole' crybaby.

Men are not supposed to cry. It shows weakness (at least that's how it's perceived imo). Men are supposed to be pilliars of strength. Stoic, unrelenting, fearless. Look at the popular programming of how "respected" men are presented: Dirty Harry, Father Knows Best, John Wayne, "The Fonz" to name a few.
Moreover, these "stones of granite" are revered as sex symbols. There's a quote in the movie "Love Actually"...."no one's going to (have sex) with you if you cry all the time."
The images are hard to overcome.
That's wonderful input from a man's view Joseph. I learned a lot from your post and think I understand my husband more now. He will only cry if it has become so so awful whatever that may be and when he does it tears me apart. Just seeing him cry makes me cry also. It is pretty intense when he does finally cry. You might call it a breakdown. A man crying can be a very powerful thing.
I agree that when a man cries, it's very powerful.
I think there is a huge difference between a 'man who cries all the time'. Turnoff. and a man who cries rarely and over a very life altering, touching or rare occurance.
Didn't The Fonz once shed a tear when Marion called him family? I thought so, but could be wrong.

God gave men tears just like he gave women!

My man cries all the time and I promise you he doesn't have a "weak" bone in his body! I tell him frequently one of the reasons that I am so attracted to him is because of the way he makes me feel so protected. I know as long as he is around NO ONE is going to harm me...period!
It starts with us telling our boys from the beginning "be tough", "your not supposed to cry", "shake it off", "it doesn't hurt that bad", you are not supposed to play with dolls even if it is a boy doll...and from that point is where they start having "expressing their feelings" problems. They are forced very young to put on the " it doesn't hurt me/bother me/affect me face!" And when they get older, the women and children in their lives tend to suffer, imo!
I have all boys and they are allowed to cry when they are physically hurt and emotionally hurt. And encouraged to express why they were brought to tears. It helps them to communicate and understand themselves as well as start learning how to manage/be in control of their emotions!
My youngest used to want to play father to teddy bears, boy babies and I let him. And let me tell you, he is only 9 but is the most loving, helpful little guy to all babies and kids younger than him! Of all my boys he is my "soldier!" Tough as they come! He does cry, but he has to really be in a lot of pain or really hurt about something! And because he is so caring for people, if someone has done something to make him cry...WATCH OUT!
Crying helps cleanse your soul! Men, you clean your body, your car, clothes, house...clean your soul too!
My husband, my boys and myself are all very passionate people(especially me) so we are often touched by many things. It doesn't mean they are punks or cry babies. They are people with deep, passionate souls and they don't mind it being exposed!
Either way, I don't believe a man will ever cry as much as a woman! It is just one of the ways that men and women are different!
I have no punks in my camp! Only handsome, very strong, loving, passionate men and young men!!!!
Lips, when i read your 1st post it made me cry. I break down every time I write or tell a story about my black lab I had to have put to sleep 3 plus years ago at 17 years old. Its tough losing your best friend.

- Gunny how i can relate to that. The thought of losing one of my dogs flips me out. Sometimes i just look at them and think about how short their lives are and it scares me half to death.
They are definitely the best friends we could ever have. Bless your heart you loved your black lab enough to not let your baby suffer any longer.
- wow, thanks!....i really have been putting off since the 80's hehe...
i tried once and it was not good, so i have been holding in a lot of crap.
and you it really is true, when you are gambling, it hide things just like the drinking and drugs,
i have not stopped gambling by choice, only having some problems, and that's just the way it is right now, but it
is really the first time i have stopped in YEARS, and it is amazing of all the things that i try to numb with my gambling are all hittting me full force now....i may have to start drinking again, or something....hehe
