My boyfriend ALWAYS crys. I really can't take it anymore because it's driving me crazy and it's annoying. He crys on my shoulder I have to find a way to calm him down then I have to watch everything I say because it might hurt his feelings I have to tip toe around everything.

Why is he crying? Do you know the reason? I think it is really cute that your boyfriend is really sensitive. But why is it kind of like the opposite. He seems to be the more feminine one. LOL. Anyway, if you really love your boyfriend, you would not really be annoyed. Just cheer him up! Your his girlfriend so i think you know what really makes him happy. Good luck! Happy mylotting!

Hi prbrittny. Is this really true. Well, in my opinion I think you will comfort him first. You can tell him it's ok to cry. "I'm always ready to listen.I'll be your shoulder to cry on." You can also asked him the reason why he is crying. Perhaps he needs someone to share about his emotions.. Have a great day.

Most of the time as a woman we complain that our boyfriends and husbands do not show emotion. As I read this it seems that perhaps your boyfriend wears his feelings on his sleeve. I feel for you having to walk on egg shells but there has to be a reason why he cry's I would try to figure out what makes him cry and why and then work on that problem first. Perhaps he is depressed and does not know why he cry's. Maybe he should see some one that he can talk to about why he cry's. I think that there may be more to the story than he is telling you. I also think that he may need help, yet at the same time having a guy that is not afraid to cry is a huge thing. He is not hung up on that macho man appearance that most guys are hung up on. Good luck I hope that for your sanity you guys are able to figure it out and fix what ever his problem may be.

Is there a reason why he cries a lot. What does he go through when he cries? Maybe listening to him will help him stop crying. He probably feels depressed on something he may not want to talk but will have to let it out if he wants to get over the crying. Get him to let out his problem.
