Unhappy Hurting bad.

Can anyone please tell me if males hurt as much as women do. If so, they hide it well.

Of course they do...but they have been socially programmed not to show emotion..
Think about it, be a brave boy ..big boys dont cry ..be a big brave soldier for mummy ect..these are all encouragements for little boys to learn that them showing emotion is not desired.

My husband was wrecked when his father died and at times he still wells up when he remembers his dad.
He cried when our dog died too..

Until we allow men to show their feelings without the social stigma of being thought weak they will continue to be emotionally stunted.
