In the early stages of dating, girls are told to hold in their emotions, and to not act too interested. We're supposed to hold back any feelings we start to get. But does anyone think that the ones who let all feelings show are actually strong because of it?

Depends, I don't think you should let them be in charge.
Someone once described the human brain as being like a that of a lizard with a horse stuck on top and the primate parts on top of that.
Your most basic emotions come from the reptile part, fear, lust. The horse part has the more complex emotions, love, empathy & etc.
You ought to use your primate brain to train the other parts. Not suppress them, they need care and feeding but you don't let them do whatever they like. Give them a run when it's appropriate by all means but don't let the horse do whatever it wants, much less the reptile.0

I think there is a difference between being in touch with your feelings and just letting them all out. When I first started dating my boyfriend I did show him that I cared but I also made sure to take things slow and remain in control of my emotions. It's very easy for people to get swept away by the force of their emotions and that blind you and make a relationship too intense is a short period of time. I definitely don't advocate hiding your emotions or shutting people out but you also shouldn't let emotion rule you.0
