Why don't men express their feelings?

I was talking to this guy and i told him how much he means to me and he just said thanks. He told me he likes me and that we should date... what do I do?

  • That is very different depending on the guy. I've actually met more girls that don't express feelings compared to me that do it without a problem. I'm personally very emotional at times and need to express my emotions.

    I've actually done similar like him though and that was because I had so bad self confidence. I genuinely didn't believe someone could like me so I just said thanks even though I liked her too. So that I really messed up.

  • Men usually express how they feel with other men in like group stuff occasionally to get things off their chest. That's what my brother told me.

  • If you need to hear a specific answer, you can write a script next time. You like 'this guy' for certain reasons; please accept that the way he talks/communicates is one part of it. the good news: over time everyone is able to adapt; in this details, and in others as well.

  • Guys express their feelings all the time, but maybe in ways you don't understand as 'expressing' like women do?

  • If you want more out if him just ask him. Some guys don't express their feelings right off the bat so they don't overwhelm you. We've all got feelings inside.

  • Guys are conditioned in society to believe showing emotions is for wusses and if you do you are not a real man a cannot look after your women. Which make men feel that they must hold their emotions in.

    This of course is folly and in my opinion a form of sexism. This needs to change.

    If your a men and want to talk in an open environment I recommend looking for Men's circles in your area.

  • You should blame society and his years and years of social conditioning instead of him if you know what I mean. That damage can’t be undone.
    I hope you’ll make a better person if you get a chance to though.

  • Initiate a date.
    Men are educated not to express their feelings. Men showing their feelings still are seen as weak - also by women.

  • Men don't express their feelings because if they do they get taunted for doing so. It's a no win situation for a man!

  • All guys are different. With me I really need to know the person. Before I open up to them.

  • Well not all guys are confident n easily get along with new people some are shy that sometimes they are afraid to express their inner emotions but the fear of losing n rejection gets in the way.
