  • Well, when this happens everybody has their own way of dealing with, and these can come in various forms hence her crying and your punching.

    Some girls like it when guys cry occasionally as it shows guys do have a softer side and a heart inside them.

    Some girls like it when guys punch things as it shows they're protective of what they care about and again have a heart inside them.

    I would have to say that it depends on the girl and without knowing that said girl, nobody could really tell you.

  • I am a girl, and I don't really care how you take out your grief. Everyone handles it in different ways. I have a bad way of holding it in and pretending I am fine until I am alone and having a melt-down. So I have no room to judge.

    I mean, I would probably lean more towards the punching thing because you see more pain there truly, or, at least, I do. I also know better how to comfort pain like that.

    I lam okay with crying. I think it shows great passion for whatever happened. It shows that you felt a lot there, too. I am not very good at comforting that, I will admit.

    I prefer having the guy as the stronger one in the relationship. I don't want a guy who cries a lot. I really just don't like that, and I feel like you should really be stronger instead of crying all the time.

    I most certainly do not hate guys crying when hurt or guys using anger to show pain. I really do want you to be able to show emotion, and both do. I just don't want you to cry all the time or to be unable of showing emotion.

  • Men are usually raised with the mentality that crying shows weakness. Getting mad like you do, in the case of a death, shows your internal frustration with having no control over the situation. I think women tend to understand more that we have no control over death and go straight to mourning the being that was lost. If a girl doesn't learn who you are and how you tick, or judges you for how you deal with things, then she is not the right girl for you.

  • For something like your girlfriend's dog its not someone very close to you so no its not a case to cry. But I do think it takes a real man to show his emotions when someone dies close to them or something happens that is truly devasting. I as a girl wouldn't like to be with a guy who is crying over the little things, but is something tragic occurs then it is perfectly fine to let out your emotions.

  • I don't think I'd like an overly emotional guy. Someone who would cry at sad movies and such - although it wouldn't really matter much. But yes, I think it's important to express your feelings in a healthy way (crying) when the situation calls for it for example a death of someone important.

  • Getting angry would be a normal reaction, I think. My boyfriend isn't really emotional, and that's fine, but if he was I'd still be fine with it. As long as you're expressing yourself in a healthy way (not sure how much good punching trees would be) I think that's what you should keep doing.

  • Women say they like a man who shows emotions and cries but their actions just the opposite, over and over again. Women like men who are strong and stoic, period.
