@So yea - guy's keep their emotions in check basically.@just stereotypical.Especially in this generation where crying, moaning and complaining about every little problem is quite common. Male or female.I've met some pretty emotional guys, one is my friend and he gets on my nerves because he gets so in his feelings. Why don't you pick one story & stick with it. You said its stereotypical, then you stereotyped. Guys don't keep emotions in check, any more than women do. You see what you want
Listen chick - I didn't stereotype at all here - all I said was I personally, find emotional guys bothersome - hell emotional people all together. I don't get what you were trying to counter argue here? They do - why the hell do you think this whole men are stoic thing came about? You think one person just came along and was like hmm, men should be stoic? Hell no -Society takes naturalistic ideals and refines them - women are more emotional correct?
This can't be denied, women have a very interesting connection with their emotions - very significant compared to men. It's just apart of our nature. Society however, idealizes people - men are naturally more sturdy in nature, it's just how they are, their brains process things a bit differently - if not, then both genders would behave in the exact same way - and we don't - Society has only taken subtle naturalistic ideas and emphasized them to a point of stereotyping -
Hence why you get such bold ideas that men have no emotions, and women have too many emotions. Which aren't true. I already said men and women both have emotions to the same degree - men just handle there's in a different manner. I defined it as rationalizing them. And don't mistake that for men walk around with a clear head all the time, never have a tantrum here and there - no, they just don't typically let there emotions get the better of them is all.
if someone is bothered by something, they usually don't want to think you don't care. I tend to stay very calm in emotional situations-mostly because I'm more comofrtable that way, but also to be supportive- it isn't always appreciated. people want to know you care. they don't want you having a melt down, but they want to know you care, like they do. if you literally are not moved by something, well, no need to fake it, but id say, ifcare, you should probably let them know. you can care and be strong.
LOL. He's looks bitter and cynical himself...

You gotta swim through it to find those islands of reason. :-D
we express our emotions plenty, just differently...
And to women, that difference is interpreted as a non-existence. It isn't about "what is", it's about how it's perceived.
