    Not every woman is emotional! I'm not. What sorts of things was your girlfriend crying and getting pissed off about?

    I seem to be suffering from the opposite problem. And I'm all woman. And extremely strong in my own right. And I'm so tired of hearing "you must have such a big soft side, you're a mom, aren't you"? I'm a single mom, and hard as hell on my kids, and anyone else that pisses me off. LOL I'm a strong woman and not afraid to show it. But when you take the time to get to know me, then you might get a glimpse of the soft inside.

    Men get emotional too. It might be in different ways but we do

    Some women are criers, others aren't. Why didn't you try talking to her and asking what's wrong?

    I'm not a crier, never have been. I was reared in a household where tears were not allowed. :frown1: Unfortunately, some women learn early that tears can be used to manipulate the people around them, especially men.

    Women seem to be genetically "blessed" with a larger emotional capacity. Apparently, this makes them more able to "pick up" on babies and children.

    Or maybe -- and this is my pet theory -- it's a form of birth control!! :eek:

    As a man, I can say that we are hard wired to diagnose, and then fix problems, for our women. But then we are confused because many times women don't necessarily want to FIX them, but rather TALK about them. This is manifests itself into what is known as "girls night".

    As a fairly experienced man, when they (women) are in an emotional whirlwind... I have learned that it's best to help when asked, LISTEN to what they say if they talk, console them if necessary or possible, or if all the above fails...stay out of her way.

    Don't ask why...it just IS...but in her particular case, it sounds like she's emotionally unstable.

    Here's an interesting quote from David Deida's bok "The way of the Superior man". He defines masculine and feminine as two different types of energy, not genders. Although women tend to have more feminine, and men tend to have more masculine. They are just tendencies though...

    I agree, when they are manipulative tears, my mother explained to me there are a LOT of women capable of what she called "crocodile tears". What this means is they know by crying you will cave. Women who overuse this approach tend to get burned after a period of time when the tears have no effect whatsoever because they use it so often.

    Other times as said, they are real and if it is happening VERY frequently you need to find out what the causes are.

    Quite possibly. My ex-wife is like that. We went to marriage counseling, and eventually the counselor told me that she strongly suspected that my ex-wife has bipolar personality disorder. She also said it would be very difficult to stay in a relationship with someone like that, which turned out to be correct....
