This is connected to the previous (first) question that I asked on GAG (but can also be treated as a separate question)...
I always tried to keep a straight face when my ex said hurtful things about him leaving me. I told him not to leave, but kept a straight face and cried later when I was alone. If I was scared of losing him, I would still keep a straight face, smile or avoid looking at him in the eye, when I was upset. He used to tell things about other girls- what I'd do if I left me for of them... Most of the times, I'd try to ignore it... but sometimes it'd get to me. I'd still do my best to smile at him.
Once he told me how he tried to bed his ex, after he started an *unofficial relationship* with me, and I avoided getting upset in front of him and burst out laughing.
Was I wrong when I hid it, when I was upset? Was I wrong when I didn't show my feelings? Will these behaviors of mine cause problems in my relationships in the future? Will relationships work for me in the future?
Kinda am still in touch with my ex, having trouble getting over him and scared that I won't succeed in a relationship, that I might hurt the other guys that come my way.

you didn't hide your feelings. you told him not to leave. that is letting him know you care.
though he was being an a**hole so it doesn't really matter if you were more emotive or not. he should be out of your lifeas it is.
also a lot of people listen to your view more seriously if you're not being dramatic. I don't think you need to cry. just be honest. that should be enough for anyone who genuinely cares about you.1
