S/o Has he ever cried - Do you think it's unmanly for a man to cry?

 As a spinoff to my previous post Has he ever cried in front of you? ...

Is it unmanly or unattractive for a man to cry? Do you think he's a baby or that he ought to feel ashamed of his tears? Do you prefer a man who never cries or one who shows his sensitive side on occasion?

It's human for men to cry. After all, they have emotions too.

It makes me seriously uncomfortable when I see my guy cry, but I think it's a perfectly natural thing

only if he's dead.

if he is alive and has feelings I expect that at one time or another he will cry

If a man cries I think it shows they know how to love, care and show emotion. Wish my hubby cried more actually lol

I think its human to cry at times. Women are more emotional creatures than men by nature so in turn men cry less, but I believe that it is completely natural for men to cry sometimes.

Not at all, now if he cried over EVERYTHING maybe. I like really strong "manly" men, but everyone has a breaking point. It's devastating when dh cries, mainly because he very rarely does and I know that he is really hurting.

I think that it's wonderful that my husband isn't afraid to cry in front of me when he's happy, sad or otherwise moved my something powerful. It is human and a normal way of releasing those emotions. Don't get me wrong, he doesn't cry daily or even weekly, monthly, etc. He cries when he feels something powerful or gets completely overwhelmed.

I think that men are allowed to show their emotions just as women are. I don't look down on a man who cries.
