I was just wondering if how girls react and think of their man when they see them cry?? For some women they see it as a gayish act for men but for some women they see it as a sign of manhood and bravery.I think some see it as gayish act because it's not usual for men to be seen crying,for some men should always present themselves as strong and courageous. On the other hand some think of crying men as brave because not every man can express their feelings this way. Is crying for men really not a good for their image??Because when I asked my girl about this she said that she likes guys who cry because it shows and means they are sincere in what they do..

Give me a man who can cry over a man who never crys anyday. A man who won't or can't cry in front of someone else is not a man to me. He is a insecure and fake man. A man who is not afraid to show his softer side is a man that I want.

I think you have to know the guy first before he can show you his real side. There should be some kind of mutual understanding between the two of you so he can be abit emotional in some way.

LOL me too give me a man who can cry a little! this reminds me of the episode of friends where Chandler can't cry and also when Bruce Willis was a special guest and he couldn't stop crying.. But I think a man who cries has a genuine reason to cry and it will always be something really serious. I mean if he cries because his fingernail is broken well then he's totally gay and well a joke really!

If the crying doesn't happen all that often it shows the man is in touch with his emotional feelings in a meaningful way. I look highly upon him and hope that by crying he will release some of his distress. It shows the man is sincere and I understand his feelings better. I would much prefer a man to cry that to shout and get angry. In that case I feel afraid but just crying is fine.

Hey, Well I don't really know what women think when they see their man cry, but I have heard that sometimes some women don't actually know how to react or what to do. Because it is normally the man comforting their wife, not the other way round. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

I think a man crying is a strong man.he can easily express his emotions.it doesn't make him less of a man.in fact,crying makes him more manly because he was brave to get in touch with his emotions and express them.crying doesn't make him gay or coward.

I think it really depends. If I do not know you, or we just met for only one time, and you cry right in front of me, I would really think you are too femine; after all, from social point of view, men is stronger than women, and more capable of handling stress. However, if you are my friend, or intimate friend, I would think your cry as a sign of trusting me. You show your pains, and helpless to me, I should be the one who comfort you and warm you. But things go opposite again, if you cry too much often, that is to say, you cry when every single trouble comes to you. I would not tolerate either. But whatever. As long as your girlfriend loves you, she loves for who you are. So, just be yourself!

Dear friend, I could see that each women has their own ways to face life it entirely differs from individual to individual even though they have some base characters in them as men too have it. I would say if a person is seen crying a loving, understanding and wise women would do the needful to stop that cry, on other side if that women hates him I could hold a cry would be enjoyed these goes on the variety of women.

Well., if a man cry...it really mean something... for me its really a plus point in some way... its not bad at all... i like guys who can express their feelings very well... it is kinda more sign of maturity.... because in some way they know how they can get off their bad or painful feelings,etc. inside by crying and not by drinking at the same time ending up in a fight or something else they might regret later on... nice topic!

People are tend to cry when they are hurt or happy so it is fine if men also cry. When they cry it really mean something and shows what he really feels. And it's a brave act to cry for the those he love aside from knowing the fact that some people think that it is not man enough to do that. It is not bad for men to cry, there's no law about it. =D

it depends on the type or man whom your seeing to cry. as for me, the men that i know are kind hearted and very serious and sincere when i see them cry. for example, my father cries when he receives a phone call from her brother or sister far away from him. this means that he felt very appreciated with the phone call he gets from them because he miss them so much. another is my boyfriend, he cries when the two of us will part ways because he will be working and going back to his destination far away from me. he cries because our lovely moments will be ended for the mean that time he will be working back there. there are men who are sincere and who are not, it really depends on each of their personality so you have to know and weigh them. but one thing is really nice about it is that,, you should not be fooled by these acts because it might be deceiving.

for me i think it is a good thing that a man cries. crying is a sign of expressing himself. i want a man that can cry and still look at me for i know that he is brave enough to let me know what he feels.

It depends on the circumstances. Why are they crying? It a man is crying because of a loss of a loved on or something like that then that just shows that he has feelings, but not that he's gay. Men are human and they do feel. I don't think men should cry over silly things, then yeah I'd say they are gay. I mean it's not like people can't control their emotions in most situations. If a man smashes his finger is it typical for him to cry, nah, I don't think so. Now for woman, a lot of them cry when they feel physical pain. But I think men are programmed that showing physical pain is weakness and I do agree with that. As far as it meaning they are sincere, I disagree.

Specially in today's society, men are often seen as the masculine one, the tough/strong/hard guys, who would never show and admit that they are weak. This is the stereotype. We cannot also deny that crying is now seen as a form of weakness (I really don't agree with this, but I'm just stating what I think is realistic). So, when a man cries, and not being ashamed about it, I think that shows what a real man is all about. Admitting that he too, can cry, can admit his soft side. I had a boyfriend wherein one time we were just together listening to our song, hugging each other and just being happy that we love and have each other. Then a few moments, I saw him crying. It really melted my heart. I hugged him and told him I will always be there for him. So there. :)
