I was just curious.... do men ever complain about bad things that happen to them or do they all keep it inside and never let it come to the surface?

I think men feel that they must be the strong, silent types. That is really so wrong. Everyone needs to talk to someone about how they are feeling./ If you always keep things inside, then you just "blow up" one day for the smallest reason and nobody knows why. But ultimately it is cause by things that have been bottled up for a long time.

Men are terrible complainers. They just don't complain about the big things, only the little ones.

I think that a lot of men were raised to keep all their problems inside. In this way, I feel bad for them. Women can talk over their issues and discuss them with friends as a way of working through them.

That's exactly the point.All human beings are not supposed to be the same there must be deep differences between men and women and that's why we have been created in such way.

I try not to complain too much. Most of the world's conversations are made up of somebody complaining about something, and most of it's pretty useless or minor. Don't sweat the small stuff, you know? That said, when something big happens that I don't like, I'm horrible about complaining. I'm sure it annoys my girlfriend, but I try to let things go fairly soon.

Some men can definetly complain ALOT. the guy i dated before my boyfrined whined about everything and it just drove me insane and thats why i didnt pursue a relationship with him. Everytime i saw him or talked to him on the phone, he would just whine about his job,his roomates,his car, his family, his pets...and it just never ended. So yes, some men can be really big complainers

My hubby and I always discuss the major and not so major goings on in his life, he has to have a safe place to vent all his fears hope dreams, and to discuss thingsa he feels are injust and unjustly done to him. I love him with all my heart and we openly discuss every aspect of life together, he holds nothing back from me and I nothing back from him/

My boyfriend hardly ever complains. I'm not really sure if he just lets it go, or hides it, or what, but he almost never comes home from work with a list of what went wrong.
