Hmmm... thought of another interesting topic. Especially since this site is mostly populated by the rugged manly studly jock types (which I'm not, but swears to be someday soon! LMAO).
I was thinking of sob stories... literally.
First off, my own story. I cried a lot of times before adolescence. I got into a lot of fights because I had always been eccentric (though not much of a loner) in elementary. When I'm angry, I'm usually bawling all throughout. I was always the more aggressive one in fights (even though I never initiated them). I had the reputation of being a berserker, LOL, because I very very rarely get angry, but when I do I go irrational. I once chased my whole grade 3 class around the classroom with a chair, bit a bully until he bled, and chased a much older bully with a bamboo pole and the intent to kill. LOL All done while sniffling and sobbing pathetically. Heh
I can only remember one instance in my teens in which I cried in front of people. What's horrible is that the reason was totally inane. I was in sophomore high school (HS starts earlier for Filipinos, I was 12 or 13) and it was our first day of class in Biology. In the absence a seating arrangement, we pretty much had to pick our own 'territories'. I wanted to sit with my bestfriend, so I chose a seat and plopped my backpack on it. We had to go outside for a bit, and when I returned, one of my female classmates had claimed my seat. Grrr...
We started arguing and I don't know what happened next but I suddenly realized I was crying. The fact that I was crying in front of the whole class made me cry even harder! LOL It's funny to think of it now, but it was totally humiliating. Luckily, the culture here is much less judgmental. Nobody laughed, even the girl apologized. Later on, I realized I was just having a really bad day and the emotional pressure of arguing over a seat caused me to burst into tears.
So guys... considering that you're all homosexual to some degree and mostly masculine,
a) Have you ever broken down and cried in front of other people before? No need to elaborate the reasons (it might be personal), just tell us if you did and what you thought of it.
b) Have you ever cried when reading a good book/movie?
c) Have you ever cried yourself to sleep?
d) Also what are your thoughts about men who cry? Do you consider it less manly?
Personally, I just CAN'T resist a guy who cries in front of me. He could be the ugliest guy in the world but I'd want to marry him right then and there (WARNING: EXAGGERATION DETECTED). There's just something VERY attractive about someone who can show his own vulnerability. I'm curious about what you guys think of it.
