What Do You Think About Guys Who Cry?

I am such a sucker for romantic comedies. I get all into the lovey-dovey storylines and always end up sobbing at one part or another.

I happen to think they're great movies to see with a new guy since they let you get a sense of how sensitive and carefree he is. You can see if you both laugh at the same parts, or if he has no sense of humor whatsoever.

But, what if you happened to glance over at a particularly touching scene, and saw your guy shed a tear? How would you feel? And what do you think about guys who cry openly? Do you love that they're not afraid to express their feelings, or do you think it's a sign of weakness?

I don't care if he cries FOR A VALID REASON. But for a sad soppy movie? I'll say ditch the guy, you're gonna end up being his mother later on.

Guys who cry in public what a turn off but guys who cry alone at home over something really big is such a turn on for me.

i come from a Country {UK} which is not for men to show too much emotion, and are to be manly and tough. so i supose i feel uncomfortable if i see a man cry. i think its good to be sensitive and confide in you when hes emotional, but not to cry at a film or in public at the smallest thing.

I love when men cry and show emotions! every guy I date doesn't show any emotion the entire relationship but when we broke up they would cry! it drives me nuts. It's good to show the human side.

I don't even cry in movies, so I wouldn't really enjoy a guy who does. But at certain times, it's appropriate. I went to a funeral a few days ago with my guy, and we both cried, and I was fine with that. It all depends of the situation and how you feel about it.

I think it's ok for a guy to cry, but he has to make sure he's not as sensitive as Sandy from Friends...

My boyfriend started to cry once when I was crying and I started crying harder and just loved him so much more. It really brought us together and prepared us for trouble that came that night. After we patched things up we'd started arguing again and one the way home the car broke down on the freeway and we had to walk a mile and it was so stressful for him I could tell he was about to break down. But he was okay and so was I. We walked back to my house and held each other, we are very much in love.

I like boys who are passionate, but not overly sensitive. I don't know, it's just me.

lol i sorta agree with kiwilu ;) but i mostly agree with the 27th comment ;) and this comment "Just as long as he cries over things that are worth crying over. Getting all teary eyed because the Bengals lost isn't going to earn any sympathy from me." ;) yup that's true.

As strange as this might sound, I think is sexy lol. I wouldn't mind if he cried over a movie. I would just want to turn to him and give him one BIG hug.

stereotypes are stupid, including the ones about men.

My boyfriend isn't a "movie crier". But he cries if we have a fight or something sad happen. I hate it sometimes, when I am trying to have an adult conversation, you know? But, I like him for been such a sensitive person.

Its ok cause I think it shows that the guy is comfortable around you and actually has emotions and isn't trying to be the super tough guy that never feels anything (omg, I hate the "super tough guy" types!! it is SO annoying!). It is annoying if someone cries all the time though, like at movies all the time or just about little stuff, but thats annoying whether they are a guy or a girl.

I love a guy who can shed a tear. I hate men who literally can't cry, even when something is sad.

Guys who cry? It shows they have feelings, and they're not invincible. They're human. I am just so sick of that "tough guy" persona that guys try to have. Just as long as he cries over things that are worth crying over. Getting all teary eyed because the Bengals lost isn't going to earn any sympathy from me.

It's kind of hard to say for sure. My first date had tears rolling down his face when this sad part came up in a Disney movie, and I did not find that attractive. I just thought that was kind of funny. It's not that it's "weak". It's just that I've seen that scene before in an earlier, better, non-Disney movie. And I cried at that older movie when I was six, but my teenage self was so over it already. Hee. But I guess gender was not really an issue there, because I would have felt the same way if I was with a girl who cried at that part. When some male characters cry in TV shows, I just melt. Like I just want to give them a big ole hug. But then, those guys tend to be seriously hot and charismatic. There was this one show where a character was full-on sobbing and I was like "wow, this is awkward. And yet I find him seriously hot right now." And then as that show went on, he just cried a hell of a lot, and it lost its appeal. Is it weird to find crying attractive? It's like I'm enjoying a fictitious person's fictitious misery. Hee. Maybe this is why I have yet to find real life crying attractive. It's hard to enjoy it in that way when it's a real person. Not because male crying is somehow not okay.

Everyone cries sometimes, but a constant crier would get really irritating.

Awwww...I think I've seen my husband cry 2 or 3 times during the entire time we've been together. He gets the watery eyes, but no sniffles or nose-wiping stuff. He tries to be tough, but he's a big softie. :)

I agree with colieoats. I actually respect a guy who can cry in public, since it takes a lot of balls to go against the social stigma that men can't cry. I like a guy much more if he is brave enough to show how he's really feeling rather than conforming to a stupid social norm.

I kinda get aggravated over this fueled-from-birth notion that "real men don't cry." That's crap. It takes a real man to really show his emotions. I'm not talkin' cry baby, woman aren't cute cry babies either. But when the situation warrants it, a good cry never hurt anyone.
