Most Helpful Guy
I think it is because when we try to show emotions or talk about something we are emotionally connected with society and our friends tell us this is unmanly be degrading the person by calling them a "wimp", a "pussy", or "gay" which makes the guy much less willing to open up again because he was shut down and told that is basically was unmanly to do such a thing. I wish this would change though because we are all human and should all be able to express emotions without being seen as weak no matter the gender

fear. same with women.
fear of rejection, judgement, scrutiny, tainted reputation, verbalising thoughts, being accessible or exposed to someone else.
it goes on really. i think the more guarded someone is, the more theyv experienced and the more love and care they need despite a rough exterior. i feel like i can see right through that sometimes.
