When my boyfriend and i got into an argument and i said i didnt want to be with him, he started crying and telling me how much he loved me. This is weird hearing coming from a macho man. How does it make u feel when your man show his feelings towards you and what does he do??(is he sensitive, does he write poems etc)

My bf is great. But he does not show his emotions often. I LOVE it when he does tho. He wont do it in obvouis ways, its more in a subtle way. Like he went camping this wkend, and he said he wishes he was here with me instead. Or when Im away at school, hell say he misses me. Stuff like that always makes me feel kinda fuzzy inside, cuz he is not good with emotions. So I know when he does that its kinda a plus. I just wish I could get him to show how he feels a little better!

my bf is quite the mr macho man, or he likes to think he is. i've only ever seen him cry once, and that wasn't very long, like 3 or 4 tears. but it was enough. he just thinks that a guy shouldn't show that kind of thing.
but i can usually tell when he's upset, he doesn't need to cry for that.

why is it not macho to be able to cry, be angry, or be head-over-heels in love?

frankly, i think i appreciate a man more if he can be true to what he's thinking and feeling, instead of putting up a front.

yeah, i've seen my boy cry, but i've seen him intellectually bludgeon a man in a half hour argument over politics (and that was just today, i was so proud). he's not afraid to get snuggly with me in front of his friends. and he's not afraid to tell me to my face when i'm being a complete bastard. i admire that sort of integrity.

My guy doesn't show his emotions offen, usually only when he is upset. I know when he is happy, sad and other basic things like that, but that's about it. I never know how deep it goes. We've just gotten through a rough patch and, since things are smooth, I asked about making it offical again. I'm having to really probe him for answers to the questions I ask and things are invaribly always left open. It's really frustrating. I really wish he would show me these things.

OMG I love when my boyfriend crys, well not love it, but I think that it is the most wonderful thing that you can see about your boyfriend. It just opens so many doors when you see your boyfriend cry. And when we cry together its even more special, I know that he cares when we cry together about us.

My boyfriend doesnt cry with his body-like us girls, our whole body gets into it-tears just run down his face. You just know so much more when you see that, its hard to explain but.....now I am sad thinking about my boyfriend cry.

Ash,
thats terrible. yes it is true that guys have more trouble (in general) expressing their emotions than girls do. So when you BF expresses his emotions, you punish him by not talking to him for hours. Gee that sure sounds like a great way to get him to open up!

My bf doesn't really show his emotions a lot. I've never seen him cry, but he's told me about the last time he cried (it was at a church camp). i love it so much when he shows how much he likes me by saying sweet little things. For example i was walking with him and i said that some tree was really beautiful and he's like "whatever" and i said "oh, you have no appreciation for beauty" and he said "well im walking here with you..." awwwwww......ok enough of that.

And he says he has no romanticism...

When we were first together, my boyfriend didn't show me his emotions... Now that we have been together for quite awhile, I always see his emotions. I really like the fact that he is comfortable enough with me to cry in front of me or whatever... It would drive me crazy if he didn't show his emotions..
