    I won't cry ridiculously, but when it comes I feel there's no shame in it. A man needs to know when to keep composure, but must also know when to cry. A strong man must be able to show moments of weakness as well, it is what makes him human.

    Every time a family member died, or every time I felt I lost a close friend, I did secretly cry, and anyone who dared say anything against it was running in danger of getting the shit kicked out of him next. If I'm happy, I'm happy --- If I cry, I cry, easy as that. I know why I'd be crying, and I'm not crying for an Emo reason. I'm not a person that cries much, but if I feel it's called for, I won't restrain it - so bloody accept that, end of story.

    I honestly can't recall the last time I cried, and i'm not saying that to boast in some sort of stupid uber masculine way.

    But it's perfectly acceptable to cry sometimes, I assume in some way its good for you.
    Seeing a big, tough man cry is in some way, moving to me.

    I raise English Setter bird dogs and once in 2007 the best dog I ever had passed away, and yes I did cry. She was more than just the run of mill hunting dog like the ones I have now she was my partner and my friend. She was the only one I ever let sleep in the house. Her and my gf did not get along as they were very jealous of each other. When she did do something wrong and I scolded her she would chew up something belonging to my gf.

    Funny when my best friend was murdered by his pill popping ex-wife over money I did not cry. I felt something else, a burning hatred for her and everything associated with her. Later after he was buried and the trial was over I shed a few small tears while helping his father pack his things up at his house.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Do I Cry?

    No. What ever happen to the good old days when men kept their feelings bottled up. Now men are suppose to be sensitive, in touch with their feelings & cry & all that fem stuff.

    Btw, I think John Boehner should be disqualified from being Speaker of the House because he cries too much.

    Only reason I'm going to cry before my woman is family bereavement, and I think that's justified. Point of a man is to know when to cry, and when not to cry. Man that didn't cry in front of his wife when his only son's just been killed in combat is bottling it up for the sake of it. Chances are most women will be comforting, understand and respecting unless it's "fem stuff" you're crying about.

    The last time I cried because I got my feelings hurt was t the age of 13, when my father made a rather nasty comment about me. Since then It's become impossible to cry for that kind of reason.

    Last year a friend sent me a very nice video with nothing but images of the sun taken over long periods of time, and sweet emotional music in the background. You could see solar flares, sun spots, and storms all come and go. Watching the brilliant sun and hearing the sad/emotional music in the background made me think about the passage of time, all the good people who lived and died, the problems of the world and how insignificant they all are... how insignificant we all are. Then I thought of my own life, all the people I love, all the people I hurt. I thought about how I hurt myself, how too often I let negative thoughts rule my life... and I started to weep uncontrollably. I was alone, and I let myself go. It felt really good. I cried for like 30 mins. If you knew the circumstances of my life a year ago, it would make sense.

    I've searched for the video all evening to no avail. If I find it I'll post it, eventually.

    I am a very deep and feeling person, and I can be inspired sometimes to the point of feeling emotional. Or, if I'm experiencing some great loss, I may shed some tears. But, these examples are pretty normal for most people.

    However ... for me, I almost NEVER cry around anyone else, as it can be taken as a sign of weakness. I don't even cry around my fiancee, normally.

    For example, this Christmas, I was remembering my grandmother (who had passed away a few years back), and I was missing her very much, and especially so since it was Christmas. She really did Christmas up right, and Christmas just wasn't Christmas without her. Every time I would think of her, or if someone would start talking about her, I'd find myself tearing up. So, I did the man thing, and would politely excuse myself. Then, once I was by myself, I would allow myself to cry and process my emotions. Once I had grieved for a few minutes, I'd wipe my eyes off and rejoin my relatives. That's a healthy way to grieve.

    So, I let myself cry if I need to, but I just make sure and do it only when I'm alone and in private.

    We never had those times in Germany. Have you ever read Goethe?
    We don't like inflationary crying.
    "Nothing is more disgusting than the majority: because it consists of a few powerful predecessors, of rogues who adapt themselves, of weak who assimilate themselves, and the masses who imitate without knowing at all what they want." (Johann Wolfgang Goethe)

    A extremely rare event for me.........

    I come from origins where showing too much emotion is considered weakness.

    [Call me a individual hardened most of their life.]
    National Socialism is the only salvation for Germanics and Europids everywhere. Capitalism, libertarianism, and communism is the enemy.

    National socialized collectivism must prevail over radical individualism.

    Yes, I do. In funerals of close relatives and once in a while of strange and unknown reasons. Like when i watched that Rohan charge in LOTR3 . If someone has seen me cry is a different question.
