Why don't guys show their true feelings and tell us how they feel ?

when you break up with a guy, they act like everything is fine and it doesn't matter, when they are actually heart broken. why do they bottle up their emotions like that ?

Thats because they are being trained since they were young to bottle up their feelings and be a man. Honestly, if he cried in front of you, you have not respected him as a man because he is a crybaby. But guys are humans too, they have the same fear of rejection and are also heartbroken but they cant always show their feelings in public because of the fear of losing the respect of others.

Because we don't want to be gurly and stuff, we need to keep our reputations and be "men". Im a boy and wish it wasn't this way ;(

A real man shows emotion, he's not afraid of what others think.

Uhm that's not true. Not all guys want sex. I've met plenty of guys that aren't just looking for sex. You just gotta be Around the right people.

While environment and personality play a part in how each individual responds to specific situations, men process feelings quite differently primarily because of genetics. To put it simply, our "emotional wiring" is very distinct.

The best thing to do is accept these natural diffferences even if we don't fully understand them. Doing this has saved me a lot of trouble! I've also learned to appreciate the complementary quality of our distinctive emotive responses. Actually, I'm thankful for our differences!

No worries. Actually your answer is not wrong - men instinctively don't want to be "girly" as you say. But we don't want to be feminine primarily because we are programmed by nature to be men. The truth is, women generally want us to be men too!

That's why you just gotta make sure you trust them and they trust you. It's hard I know. I've cried multiple times because of boys. And it sucks. Boys just never show their feelings. Especially in front of "the guys". They can't hold our hand or say I love you around them. And it pisses me off soo bad

Well I'm proud to say that I always made sure my love one was more important then anyone we interact with including holding hands in front of my guys, telling her she's beautiful everyday and etc and I see it wasn't enough but I still have faith that shell come back in my life.
