  • I think women are just more emotional than men, in general. We get trained young..
  • It's not that it's easier it's more like harder to show how you feel to the person. I might be wron but this is through my experience.
  • They are wired differently. They have the feelings, they just don't show it. They keep it inside.
  • Consider the following: When girls are growing up they get used to having their girl parties where they discuss feelings and other things that are mysterious. When boys grow up we get used to bragging and trying to show our friends up for status. By the time we meet someone special we are already indoctrinated and it is hard to break us of this. If you keep at it long enough you will crack him and he will see that it is OK to show feelings. :)
  • yes we tend to bottle up our feelings,i suppose as men we think we have to be strong ,not all and i am a great believer it letting one,s feelings out ,and really one should not be afraid to cry as sometimes holding in certain emotions can be hard on a person.so i think sometimes we just have to let them go .
  • This is a very broad over-generalization, I think, even if you base it only on a single culture. Across cultures, I've often seen this reversed, in fact. In many (not all, and maybe not even "most") Western cultures, men are trained to keep their emotions under wraps, to some degree. But if you've met many Italian men, then you'll know that's certainly not universal! But even many Western women have learned not to show displeasure, for example, because the repercussions to them can be physically damaging.
  • Most women are more emotional & we tend to fall for guys faster than they fall for us.
  • Who says we have an easier time hiding them? Why do you think there are far more men in prison than women?
  • well women are diffrent they fall in love more quickly there vision of love is very sweet >< but men....like me we dont feel that way, we dont show it but we are intrested of them girls are nice but its hard to express ir
  • ( i wont say it...i wont, i wont......) cuz they dont have any!!!!!!! (damn, I said it!)
  • Years of training and a contempt for histrionics and obtaining an advantage by turning on the waterworks.
  • I don't think it necessarily is easier but rather men are taught from a young age that exposure of emotions allows other men to prey on their weaknesses. Plus society still looks down on men if they seem emotional. Where as women aren't held to the same standard and aren't judged harshly unless their emotions boarder on the dramatic.
  • more practice, more testosterone...
  • I honestly believe that a fundamental difference between men and women is the way our brain communicates between the left and right hemispheres. Men have a very limited ability while women are plagued with an absolute maze of avenues. We can focus and not become destracted so easily when we feel serious toward something. Its like the only bridge to allow confusion, is being used.
  • Men have a natural tendency to 'bottle' things up. They are taught to 'suck-it-up' instead of releasing their emotions in a healthy manner. They are taught the crying equates to weakness. Boys are expected to be strong both emotionally and physically. They are told to "be a man!" This is a common cultural norm for our society. Leading men to develop a 'bottle-and-blow' personality. Resulting in explosive behavior. When they 'blow' watch out!
  • Completely depends on the person. My dad and brother cry at the sight of a drooping daisy, but myself and my mom won't even cry at a funeral. Depends on how a person was brought up I suppose.
  • It's what they've been brought up to be, it's a societal thing and women were taught to let out their emotions.
  • Less hormones
  • It's a gift for them!!
  • Socialization. Oh and the fact that their language center is not as genetically developed. That's life.
  • TESTOSTERONE. It's the ultimate antidote for 'feelings' other than *AAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!* *smash*
  • I am not sure we do. Men tend to deal with emotions differently than women, tending to internalize them more. I can tell pretty accurately how men in my family are feeling because I know them well. And it is culturally ingrained that men are supposed to be "strong and supportive" in time of sadness and grief.
  • Frankly, I believe most men are quite easy to 'read,' so one can intuit a 'feeling.' Mostly, I think that if we women would just shut-up long enough to SENSE what is going on with our men, they would be quite transparent. Most women are talkers and want to talk endlessly about the multitude of variations 'on a theme.' (We women CAN kick a horse to death -- even after its said 'uncle!') Most men, on the other hand, probably have but ONE 'reason' or 'answer' to share. [Does this mean if its not the one the woman wants to hear, or he didn't give 'the right one, she'll just pursue ad infinitum until she hears the one she wants to hear)? Most times men are VERY simple, rational and most do not play games whatsoever. My advice? 1. Ask without an agenda or a pre-prescribed script (for him) that he should follow! 2. Ask in a tone and during a time where absolutely no drama is going on! Give what you want to get! BE the person you would want to marry! .
  • Not showing feelings takes practice. Many men use sports to alleviate pent up feelings. Try taking a jog every time you think that you are about to get emotional.
  • We have different hormones and testosterone so yeah.. :/ Unless they're gay. :]
  • We're tough and strong that's why.
  • Because their brains aren't soaking in estrogen! Once a month, against her will, it can become 'normal' for a woman to become a raving, sobbing unhappy ball of emotions.
  • idk about that... Most guys of my generation let out their feelings out pretty easily. I know very few guys that dont let out their emotions. Then again i hang out with some really nice cool people so maybe im just lookin at this from a one sided perspective...
  • We don't really. I just think they're not as obvious. +5
