It's not easy being green

When I was a young boy, I fell off my bike and went home crying, with skinned elbows and knees. I was told to suck it up; it didn't hurt that much. But, dammit, it did hurt. I knew that. However, I learned my lesson well and that was the last time in my life I cried. From then on, I became proficient in handling life's bumps and bruises tearlessly.

As an adult, I have heard many women complain that men are unfeeling louts, afraid to show any emotion. Yet when they see a man in tears, they think he's a wimp.

Yes, a sad movie can make me feel like crying, but I don't. Sometimes I am sad, or depressed, or afraid, but I don't show it.

I guess my question is what do women really want, and expect in a man? Do they want someone who wears his heart on his sleeve or the Rock of Gibraltar?

Any comments?

Let me see your emotions and show me your human. There is nothing wrong with a man crying.. there is nothing wrong with being manly. But there is a time for each.
