Today we are living in a gender stereotype. Guys cannot cry because they will seems weak. Honestly, I'm a very sensitive person. My fiancee is more. I cry sometimes when i speak to her on the phone telling her how I miss her being by my side. Speaking of which, I saw a video clip on youtube the other day. An indian boy who was always told by his dad.. "Boys dont cry". Every time when the boy is about to cry. his dad said, "Boys dont cry". At the end of the small movie. the man now married don't show any weak emotions and always beats his wife. What is the moral of the story? That boys should cry? or boys should show that they can control their emotions?

My husband very rarely cries, but I don't think it showed weakness when he did. I think it shows he's human too and he has feelings/emotions. I think it's beautiful when he cries-not in a bad way.

oh yea? I guess that every woman in a loving relationship would say that. But what about if you just meet the guy? it will have a very different opinion right?

I think it's okay for guys to cry because it shows that they are loving and caring. My guy is easily carried out when reading emotional novels or watching sad movies.

Oh well.. yes.. maybe you are right. We, guys, tend to show our real side of us once we are close to the partner.

@jeff_kenly there shouldn't be no reasons why men can't show that they too can cry.

If a guy does not cry, he resembles only a housing with no emotion, no soul, no fun . . . boo hoo

It is definitely better to cry if you feel like it...it lets the emotion out so you feel better and more in control of yourself. Holding it in is damaging.
