Is it weak for a man to cry over a breakup?

I admit, I cried after a breakup before but it wasn't in front of my ex or in public. As soon as I got home late at night, I put in some sad music and started balling my eyes out for a good 10 minutes. Has anyone experienced something similar to this before? and do you think a man crying over a breakup makes him weak?Is it weak for a man to cry over a breakup?

  • No! Of course not! People have emotions. Crying is your body's reaction to something that has deeply affected you and it's not healthy to think you are meant to cut yourself off from that altogether. But think about it, why stop yourself anyway? Because of image? The people who would think less of you for crying probably aren't the kind that you need in your life anyhow so it doesn't make sense to put more stress/strain on yourself for an opinion of theirs. Cry, take time out, take time to reflect and celebrate and know what you learnt won't be wasted but can be used next time round.

  • I wish he would. If he is hurting over something like a breakup, I encourage a guy to cry. Acknowledge his pain and work through it. Do not push it to the side, bury it, and try and dismiss it. It is human to feel emotions and I will always encourage to FEEL them in the deepest way they can. Society can fuck off. Let people be people.

  • HELL TO THE FUCKING NO.. I say this this way because your hurting crying makes you feel better and is a natural response to something that hurts... And damn if a guy cries over you you are fucking lucky means he actually cared

  • Nah, just shows that you're in touch with yourself and not burdened by societal expectation. I grew up with a father that was very open to crying and showing emotion so I never saw it as bad or non-masculine.

  • No, that's completely normal, maybe it just didn't completely hit you till later that night. Everyone grieves in different ways.

  • No it's perfectly fine. And it's YOUR reaction. Yes there are men that don't cry. There are even women don't cry. We all react differently and nobody has the right to tell you whether or not your reaction is It's belong to you and you only. Own it.

    • *whether or not your reaction is ok.

      Sorry my fingers are having an issue with skipping over words and stuff today.

      *IT belongs to you.

      Also apparently that...

    • My brain speaks English but it would seem that my hands don't.

  • No it's not... in fact guys would look more human (for me) if they could show their feelings... you know like guys always say that they have to guess girls minds when it's absolutely the opposite. A guy never ever really tell you what he's feeling when he's in pain or sorrow.

  • People will give you encouragement, and I would encourage you to cry if you feel like crying. But people will view you as weak if you admit it. Men aren't supposed to have emotions. I mean we all do, but it's our job to pretend like we don't.

  • I suggest to cry because.. if a boy or girl feld sad and they cry out loud then the stress related to sad is gone out from body... After big cry a person become strong and comes back to normal., Or else he feels sad always inside his heart.. I suggest the person to cry at that moment and leave that moment through crying

  • Crying as a man NEVER makes a man weak. No matter in which situation. It cleans the soul and floods the sadness away. So no it actually is a good thing because buiklding it up by holding it back can cause psychiological problems overtime.

  • No, we're all human, don't worry about it. Any girl who mocks you about that is a gutless bitch and any guy who mocks you about it is a lying douche because those guys may cry behind closed doors also.

  • It's not weak to cry over it, but it's weak to not bounce back. Getting down and staying down is the determining factor. Have to get back to living life.

  • once upon a time, when I was young and fool and still knows what love is, I cried like a baby, and was keeping my self drunk to avoid thinking for three straight months, just to find out later that the "angel" I was so sad to break up with her was actually a "devil" whom used me like many others, and that was it, was like a switch, haven't cried or loved or even cared after that in my life !
    no love = no cry !

  • Naw man, usually guys cry in private. You can't let the world see you sweat. There is little sympathy for men in the world, so I always cry softly in my room when I'm alone over things like that.

  • Avoid crying, it's a bad habit. The world is counting on us men to be strong. But, crying is natural so once in a while I suppose it's okay if you truly feel deeply injured.

  • No, I don't think it's weak. I wouldn't cry in public too, but probably I'd cry alone just like you did.

  • Ummm... Nnnoo. Why would it be weak? You think because we're guy's that we don't or can't hurt? Of course we can and if you need to cry then cry. It's got nothing to do with how strong you are.
