Do you think women are more emotion than men?

I think women often express their emotions and rarely hide their feeling. They like to talk to everybody about their feeling. However, men think that they are stronger, and they can face problems without expressing emotions. When they are sad, they often hold it in. I think women are more emotional than men. They tend to express more emotions, more crying, more sensitivities. This is my thought. How about you? do you agree with me?

Humm nice discussion well in our relationship case iam more emotional than my partner. I tend to be more sensitive towards situation rather my GF is so very tough i at times feel ashamed because on little situations i cry and she keeps and giving strength i find it very difficult to keep in inside me because i cannot live with it. My GF at times keeps complaining me that i have ti be emotionally strong.. The factor that she doesn't like is iam very emotional. She wants to me to be very strong.

I know man should be strong, but sometime man should show weakness at moment. Man should not express weakness all the time so woman does not like it. My husband is really strong man (physical and emotion).but sometime he is weak. I really like that he shows me.

i agree^^ its true that we girls express our feelings easier than guys. boys usually dont show much how they are feeling if they are sad. we are more emotional than them. i really like when i see a guy that doesnt hide his feelings. i think its really sweet if a guy just says how he feels. boys should show that they are also weak sometimes. that way we girls can help them feeling better. its not a bad thing to show you also are sensitive sometimes^^

I like you said" I really like when I see a guy that does not hide his feelings. I think its really sweet if a guy just says how he feels" Sometime men should show emotion, then women can understand. If men just keep feeling inside their heart, we (women) are difficult to communicate with them.

it cannot be so generalized actually as it depends on individual. but if i have to chose then i would go for girls because i have seem many my friends who are girls are very emotional.women mostly try to get attached with someone emotionally and thats what makes them more emotional. but contradictory to this i have seen many girls who are not so emotional and many boys more emotional than girls. so mostly it depends on the person and his upbringing. sometimes i feel men are able to hide their emotions on most of the occassion and dont allow their emotions to overflow while girls cant control them. regards. :)

I think that in general this is true but there are plenty of men, I'm sure, that are probably very sensitive and speak how they feel. I can say from what I've seen women do speak out and show their emotions much more. It's also seen in society that it's alright for women to cry and show emotion and men are generally told to suck it up and keep it in. They react in anger, but there are plenty of women out there as well that hold in all their emotions as well. It comes down the individual but in a general statement I would say thats correct because of society.

Yes I really agree on that women are more emotional than women. A s I have noticed that men usually keep what they feel unlike for girls they would really express what they feel that's why base on my idea that's why most men die early than women because men are not expressive to what they feel they tend to hide it. I think for me real men are those who really cry and express what they feel.

Women are more emotional than men but women are more honest with their feelings too. Men tries to hide what they are feeling because they are afraid to be misjudged by other people.

yah you're right women are more emotional than men but i think not all cos we have different personality. Some women/men can hide their feelings and some of them won't.Me myself i can say that im emotional and sensitive i really show my feelings when im sad u can see it in my face and when im happy i just show it. lets say im just being true to myself and to everyone.And i think there is nothing wrong if you show your emotions that what makes you real.right? hehe

I do agree with you but I feel that this is gradually changing due to the way that society is. I think it is becoming more acceptable for men to show their emotions and I believe this is linked to equal rights and opportunities. Earlier this year I was diagnosed with severe depression, I confided in my best friend for support and his response was "snap out of it, a measure of a man is how you deal with your problems." This was not helpful and also not what I wanted to hear so I didn't go to him for help after that although I am still good friends with him. I was admitted to a local hospital and had dealings with their crisis team who were mostly women. To start with I felt embarrassed saying how I felt about things and had real trouble opening up to them but as time went on I realised that they were very understanding and they helped me realise it is ok for me to be male and feel sad sometimes. I also realised the importance of sharing your problems with people rather than letting them fester in your head. Sorry I digressed, I think that everyone experiences emotions but some people are good at hiding them and acting like everything is fine. There are extremes in both cases - you could have an emotional male who often cries and a strong headed, hard, determined woman. They could both be upset by something and feeling that emotion but would both react to it very differently.

Hi, I am in the business of emotions. You call it acting. Now, the latest trend in acting is about holding your emotions inside, not expressing it in abundance. I have not seen any male actors better than female or any female actors better than males! that is they are equal in holding emotions! And if you say acting is not real then ask my theater colleagues and the great theater actors of the world - they'll say -acting on stage is more real than reality itself!
