Men believe that they are suppose to be manly and strong. They think that showing their emotions might make them less as a man. They are thinking insecurely that their wife of significant other might find that they are not manly enough for them. They need to be macho and manly to show that they can protect and take care of their family.I hope this gave you some insight on why men hide their emotions. At the times that they do show you a little bit of their soft emotion side be sure not to make them think it makes them less as a man.

I don't feel I have to hide anything. I just prefer not to show emotion because explaining why I'm messed up just takes to much time! :) plus I really am different. I just don't care about all that much. I don't get upset with things like my wife or daughter do. girls are nuts
That's how men work. They bottle their emotions up in a little jar, and save them for rainy days. On these "rainy days" they then open this jar, that is full of "crap" from months ago, and unleash it all on an unsuspecting person. Usually their girlfriend/wife.

They feel showing emotions shows weakness . So pretty much they aren't secure of their manhood . I'm not the most touchy feely person , but I will show emotions around friends or family . It's not like I'm going to run in a crowd of random people and start crying ... that would just be weird . I think both genders show just in different ways . In my opinion girls just talk more so you hear about these emotions on a larger scale .
There have actually been studies done in girls it's pretty much like a highway of links connecting the emotion section and the speech section of our brains so we are literally set up to talk about our feelings and men have just a few links connecting them. They don't really have the capability to talk about how they feel, it's not natural to them. it's not that they feel weak if they talk about their emotions. well they might actually think that too!
Men do it because they do not want to seem as though they are the most compassionate one in the relationship. They feel as though they care more then there partner which is not good in a guys eyes. So therefore they may obtain there true feeling and keep them secretive and kept away.
