My father died when I was 15, I didn't cry when it happened and still Haven't cried to this day, I'm 20 now and ever since I've had trouble with emotions, find it even difficult to hug sometimes, let alone admit feelings. I'm also a boxer and spend a lot of my time with my grandad doing DIY and I love carpentry. I just have strong beliefs that a man should be a man, I find emotions almost as a sign of weakness. I know its ridiculous and unhealthy but I'm trying to do something about it, I'm trying to be a bit more open about my emotions, even writing about this goes against everything even though its anonymous
Could you handle this as a girl if you were to date me ? Would it bother you ? would it put you off dating me ?

admitting that you find it hard showing emotions is already an improvement :) I understand how you feel that hiding your emotions makes you feel more protected in a way. my dad's just like that.
to be honest, I like guys that are emotional but not the always crying and dramatic type. that's a complete turn off and it irritates me a lot.
i like guys who are pretty much normal. they don't show their feelings to everyone but when they are talking to their special someone... it wouldn't hurt to try open up a little and try to put your feelings into words. not in every conversation tho... just once in a while it would be nice. plus this sharing of feelings makes the pother person feel trusted and they also get to know where they stand with you in a way... hope that made sense :)
also to answer your question I would definitely date a guy like you but id be very bothered if you don't show ANY signs of emotion and never told be about what you feel sometimes. again trying to once in a while would be nice and id appreciate it :)0
