oh gosh-yes tway!! absolutely-i hate the thought of them thinking i'm sitting in waiting for them.

Do you not find that they always arrange to do things at the very last minute-i need to plan things-well it's always handy to know what time your going out-and not get told till some 30 mins before hand!! frustration...oh the single life is just hassle free...BLISS!

I love last minute plans....and being surprised. But I can't stand tears from a man. Before anyone jumps on me...I do not cry either (unless there is a death, prehaps a wedding...MAJOR life events) To me, it seems unfair...I have seen far too many women resort to tears when all else fails. Bloody cheating if you ask me....

expressing your emotions in many different ways (and that includes crying) is actually health beneficial (man or waman) - nothing to do with cheating.
Bottling your emotions up is not a way of dealing with them.

Believe me...no one ever has to guess what I am thinking. My point was...too many times crying is used to 'win'.

You are preaching to the choir about health issues.

I suppose crying can be used as a manipulative tool, but I would assume that ploy gets pretty tired pretty fast. I don't mind a man who cries - not a constant blubberer, but once in a while when an emotion gets overwhelming. It just seems so spontaneous and real - an emotion that's right there in front of you.

I, too, can be a big anti-crier. I'll hold it in when I'm in front of people, to 'save face' or something. I usually end up with a big lump in my throat and a nasty headache. Dang taboos!

Only when I'm alone or with people I'm close to can I just let go and give in. I almost always feel better afterwards.

I find it kind of endearing when a guy cries (as long as it's once in a blue moon sort of thing). I hate this pressure that guys put on themselves not to show weakness or vulnerability. In a way, it's a compliment if a guy feels he can let his guard down with you.

But if he's haing a hissy fit once a week, run girls run!

That is exactly what I mean :) A major life event...a death, a birth, a marriage, etc...but if they start crying at a television program or the like....just makes me what to vomit. I suppose we only have ourselves to blame...all those years of saying we want sensitive men...came back to bite us in the bum!
