I think it's sweet when a man cries. Not as in depressed sobbing:
but when a confident man sheds tears, I find it really attractive. For example, imagine that Ryan Phillippe is crying in this picture:
Last month, I was discussing this with David A. during happy hour:
Me: It's so endearing when guys cry.
David: You wouldn't say that if you saw it in real life.
Me: I've seen all of my exes cry. Recently, X cried twice during the week that we dated.
Me: Yeah, once because he felt guilty, and the other time after I let him read my novel-in-progress.
David: [scoffing noises]
Me: What? I think it's sweet!
David: Crying is not sweet.
Me: Sure it is.
David: If I were you, and the guy cried, here is what I would say: 'Crying is pathetic. YOU are pathetic! Get out of my face.'
Well, gentle reader,
What do you think when a man cries?
