Boys do Cry

According to Amatenstein, women need not worry that their men will become sobbers with a little encouragement in the crying department. "Let your man know it's okay to cry sometimes, that you'll still think of him as a strong, tough guy," she advises. "This will give him a healthful release and allow the two of you to get closer."

If your man refuses to cry, don't worry, she adds. People handle and show their emotions in different ways. Just because he's not letting the tears flow on the outside doesn't mean he's not crying inside.
