    Just wondering :smile:
    What I mean by emotional is not a guy who's crying like all the time, but just when he's going through a tough period or when he's watching a romantic movie or when his girlfriend makes him very happy... just a few examples.

    Please only vote if you are female!

    I am gonna go ahead and be the 1st female (maybe?) to vote, I voted "Yes it shows he's got feelings" -- the caveat is though I don't like a man prone to histrionic fits, or one that is moody/sulky or a tortured artist type either. TOO emotional and you've lost me, I'm a stoic-ish type who likes to keep most of her emotions private. Still though I like men who are in touch with their emotional nature enough to share it with me behind closed doors.

    I get extremely happy when I'm receiving a blow job, isn't that an emotion and therefore doesn't that make me emotional?

    I mean, extremely happy.

    I like men that don't express there feelings or talk too much, I think of it as a sign of emotional maturity to not feel the need to display emotions. Express them yes, display them.....no.

    No, not the same thing.:rolleyes: I think the OP is talking about men who cry at funerals, the birth of their children, Hallmark commercials, etc.

    Wow! :eek: That is harsh and a tad unusual in his day and age.


    Do I want to date a weepy man? No. Am I okay with a man who isn't afraid or embarassed to cry when he feels something? Yes. If it gets to the point where it's an every day thing I would probably start to wonder if there were a physiological rather than emotional issue.

    harsh, no just a personal prefrence.

    Harsh would have been if I said men that display their emotions are wrong, weak, and are sissies......... and I never said that :)

    i was wondering that too, if he is expressing them isn't he displaying them as well?
    just curious as to how you define those 2 terms and what the differences are.

    Me too. I prefer men who don't talk much. I like them quiet and reserved on the emotional front and I absolutely hate to see a man cry for any reason.

    This must be a recent topic of interest as I heard on the radio today that the "average" man cries 6-13 times per year. I was surprised by such a high number. Maybe I just don't involve myself with average men?
    I can count on one hand (TOTAL) the times I have seen the men I've been involved with crying...and every time we were either at a funeral or an emergency room.


    I don't agree but lots of stuff in "this day and age" are not my thing.

    Perhaps like Cougar, this cougar, just has a preference for the strong silent type?

    Damnit Dude, I'm sorry. I voted first and then read your "women only" request.
    I'm such a failure :sorry::yell::crying::crying: <<oops, emotional :wink:

    Seriously, I'm a very emotional person. No surprise, I listen to country music :eek: :biggrin1: , and there are some songs that deal with subjects that tear me apart. NO, not leaving, or crap like that, but Child Abuse (She Lies), Cancer (Sarah Beth) and the likes. Tears definitely flow with heart wrenching songs like that.

    Funerals are also extremely hard for me if I was close to the deceased.
