Is it bad if your boyfriend shows vulnerability?

eg by taking down mental walls, crying once in a while (like once in 6+ months), being submissive, putting their head in your lap etc.

  • I absolutely love when a guy can show his emotions! It doesn't make him weak, it makes him real. I'm just not sure about the submissive part though. In what way do you mean? I like my man to hear what I want and be open to it. I think it's awesome when a guy will help his girl out with the work, but it shouldn't be one sided unless she's sick or something. Don't just take orders from her, but neither should she, I don't think. As long as you don't have some big issue with what she wants, give her way a try... And she can give yours a try too, or find a happy middle. In a relationship, it should always be both working together to make it the best for both.

  • Girls say they want a guy to be vulnerable but it's the exact same as guys who say they like the "natural" no make up look on girls.

    They have this idea in their head of what they think it is and it's beautiful and romantic in their fantasy but then whey they actually see it they are super turned off.

    So don't be vulnerable. I can't count the amount of guys who lost their GF's soon after being vulnerable with them.

  • hun that's not vulnerability, you're essentially asking if it's okay to act human. No shit. We all have our days. We all need a shoulder to cry on, we all need time to let our emotions out, we all have walls that eventually crumble down. If your (future?) girlfriend isn't okay with that, then she obviously wants a robot, not a boyfriend.

  • Isn't that normal? I can't imagine someone who won't cry in front of their partner at least once in a while... it makes us human

  • That's not bad! I want him to show his feelings. Though I like men more dominant sexually

    I couldn't handle someone who's emotional all the time, but I couldn't handle a girl like that either so that's not due to gender.

  • If this makes him feel good then I am there for him whatever. I am supposed to be the one he can show this side to. And let's admit, men do have that side and if I can provide a healthy outlet then YEAH

  • How is that bad? It shows that he's human. I'd rather have a boyfriend who is open to sharing his emotions with me rather than someone who is closed of.

  • Most women would prefer a man who is open about his emotions. If we didn't, we'd date robots haha

  • My husband never cries (not that I want him to), but he does lay his head on my lap, and he loves to cuddle, he sometimes shares with his feelings with me. He's honest about how he feels. But he's also pretty manly. He's found a good mix.

  • It's totally fine, if it doesn't happen too occasionally, and that he doesn't take me down with him. Other than that, it is perfectly fine! And even strengthening to both me and him :)
