I am forever attracted to strong men who are strong enough to face their own emotions head on and, cry. They can cry after they watch Marley& Me, or when they talk about their first love, whatever, I don’t mind at all. In fact, I’ll probably join in anyway, although I am afraid I will have to draw the line if they cry when their favorite porn star dies.
You see, I have this theory about men without tears. They have an inferiority complex so enormous that they have to try to appear tough all the time. So one day they simply can’t cry anymore, and that’s when a cheating husband or a serial killer is born.
Having said that, I can’t stand men who are always in tears either. I am not their mother for God’s sake. But it seems many modern men have discovered tears are their best weapon too and are not ashamed to use it, although aesthetically speaking, I believe women can pull it off better.
Really, how can you just sit there and watch teardrops rolling down from those big soft brown eyes of a beautiful woman, when she is clearly distraught and needs your hug?
So I am 100% for tears. And compared with men without tears, cry babies are much safer anyway. When a man tells me that he never cries, I would run as fast as I can, because if he can’t feel for himself, he won’t be able to feel for anyone else.
Let’s all cry together!
