Men aren't reknown for showing their emotions by crying, and a lot of men find that they can't cry real tears and really let the floodgates open. But when your husband or boyfriend cries (and NO not over football) I mean real traumatic crying or sobbing. Maybe he's hurting, maybe he's lossed someone, a job or a parent or because he is has a lot of emotional issues. How do you deal with it? Do you go and comfort him? Do you give him the space and time to cry alone? Or do you find it embarrassing and awkward? How do you deal with the situation if your husband or boyfriend bursts into tears? Do you try to find out the reason why? Or do you think that they shouldn't be crying in the first place? Or do you wish your man would cry? What do you think is the best way to deal with a guy who is crying? Or does it depend on the man? Some may need to be hugged, others want to be left alone. When I cry I need to be alone and the last thing I want is anyone actually hearing me cry, but how do you know what to do when you hear your man crying?
