    Obviously I don't mean in a film. I mean for emotional reasons or because of mental health problems...

    The simple and honest answer is yes, it is a turn off.

    The long answer is no, backed up by a lot of untrue ********.

    it's not a turn-off... crying is a natural emotional response everyone has.

    I mean if they start crying during a sexual act sure, I'd be turned off :lol:

    But like in general if a guy cries, I wouldn't be put off I'd just want to be there for them. Actually it perplexes me how little some guys cry, I mean I cry like on the daily!

    No, it helps me remember they are human just like me.

    Not at all! I would be concerned/find it a turn-off if my boyfriend didn’t cry over deaths or other seriously emotional life experiences. It’s good to show emotion. It’s healthy to cry.

    I think it is better to cry than to act tough.

    Crying is natural. It releases stress. Sadly, I can’t cry anymore, tears just won’t come. Been like this for past 10 years.

    Honestly I think it's more in our instincts, in my experience guys express more physical anger where as if girls get angry they often just cry (dependant on the person, but I know I do.) I'd say I cry more than the average 18 year old girl but I'm probably just emotionally unstable, like if someone gets at me or something bad happens 90% of the time I just want to burst into tears. Crying lets it out though I suppose, like punching something also would.

    This is actually such a hard question to answer! :lol:

    I think men still feel like crying shows weakness. And I hate it when someone tells you to 'man up' when you cry, as if your gender plays a role in it.

    In a total of about 13 years, I only ever cried over my first breakup. I do see crying as a weakness because it allows others to manipulate you as they know how you're feeling, not because I am a male, more to do with the lack of trust with everyone. Unless I can read your mind, I won't trust you.

    No to the hell no? Like I don't get this masculinity ********. Men are emotionally feeling as well. It should be more talked about.

    Suppose it's just a neutral thing people do, like shaving or having a poo.
