I think that men also cry, they just don't cry in front of the others. They know well that tears can't be a manly way to solve problems. Women like the others to undergo them crying but don't want to see the others' tears. So it's helpless for men to cry.

I try to be observant about guys for being emotional, and believe it or not, men get more pain than women do. That doesn't mean that guys don't cry because they don't care.. They really do, but being a man, it's not their nature of showing it. Maybe for some they do, but for most, they don't.. Sometimes it has to do with being masculine. Men are not comfortable showing emotions. They don't built that way. They are built to become tough. But crying doesn't mean showing weakness as for most think it is..

Hello mhayfie! For me, the reason why men don't cry in front of many people because we have this mentality that men are strong. They are trying to hide their feelings but deep inside, their hearts are crying. That's why mostly men have more heart failure than women..lol

Maybe boys have more power than girls?@_@ I think crying can't save any problems. As a girl, I don't like crying and it will show my flabbiness. Actually,it's not a good idea,isn't it?@_@ I don't know what the boys think about ,one thing is sure that I don't like a boy who always cry.@_@ HAPPY!@_@

I think boys can control their emotions much better than girls. If they are upset, you wont easily know it since they vent out their feelings on other things. I , on rare instances, they also cry but they try to control it until they are away from the eyes of the public.

Boys dont cry because as what you've said they're tagged not to cry. some think if a boy cry they conclude that he has a weak feelings. as what i've heard they have a strong feelings so whatever problems they encounter they will not cry.

maybe thats the way it is percieved that boys are strong so they do not cry and women are more sensitive so they cry more often. but it is not true guys cry too maybe not as openly as girls do. and not at the drop of a hat as girls do.
