Do you think men are less emotional than women or do they just hide their emotions better because society expects them to "man up"?

  • I have known some men that are more emotional than me. I think it depends on the man.

  • They are just totally different creatures all together. Every man isn't the same though, some are emotional some, like my DH are not at all.

  • I think many men are conditioned to not show emotion. They are told if they are a real man they will suppress that part of them. Probably why so many men have trouble fully bonding with their children and are able to walk away so easily. My sons are learning that strong people don't suppress their feelings and keep things bottled up only emotionally damaged people do that.

  • Of course men are emotional. They're human beings too.

    I think women are more apt to form quick emotional attachments, where it takes men a longer period of time...but once that attachment is made, the emotions run very, very deep.

    Also, people express their emotions differently. Not crying at the funeral doesn't mean an individual isn't experiencing grief.

  • My dh is quite emotional, while I am far more reserved. I haven't cried in years! Although I don't think we are typical.

  • I think most men really are less emotional. Ever notice women get more emotional when it's PMS time or during pregnancy? I think there are some exceptions though.
