Pretty much every serious boyfriend I've ever had has been a hidden softie. You'd never know it from the outside, but they tended to be emotionally open when it counted.
Some guys are always emotionally open, though, and like to tell you how they're feeling — a lot. Some even cry freely. I'm with screenwriter/all around Queen of Quips Nora Ephron on the crying business, though:
"Beware of men who cry. It's true that men who cry are sensitive to and in touch with feelings, but the only feelings they tend to be sensitive to and in touch with are their own."
Is this fair? Are you into overtly sensitive men, or are you suspicious of them?
