I avoid "Mad Max" and Chainsaw movies. I avoid horror movies.
That's right!

May I suggest a testosterone booster?

Nothing to be ashamed of!

How you know that "lots of men" do that if it is "quietly", "hidden" and "secretly"?

It was a wanking joke. It did not really work.

I had water behind my eyes when I watched Hacksaw Ridge

Normally I don't care about foreign soldiers dying, but a combat medic single-handedly carrying 75 of his comrades to safety admist artillery shelling and heavy suppression without carrying a weapon is truly inspiring.


Oops... minus 1 man point

You upside-down people need to make more movies. Other than Mad Max, Babadook and a fairly decent Red Dawn ripoff from a few years ago, I don't see a lot making it off your shores.

Re: Crying at "chick Flix" does that make me less

I cry at beauty, music is often very moving, some operas, poetry, the magnificence of youth, nature and the look in an innocent babies eyes.

I assure everyone that I have more than enough testosterone.

Is tenderness not a man's prerogative? Is romance only for newly weds? Is the appreciation beauty only for the artists soul.

I have nothing to fix. I am a happy man. Happy in all regards.

I just want to share my happiness and some of what I have learned over my lifetime.

The dog's death scene in Marley and Me.

I pretty much collapsed into a simpering snot nosed pile of tears on that one. Animal death scenes mess me up.

Like when Mufassa died and Simba was trying to wake him up and.....

....um....

...excuse me....

Re: Crying at "chick Flix" does that make me less

Hello! I hope it’s okay for XX of the species to post here.

I think it’s sweet that you cry during romantic movies and that you and your wife bond over this. That’s awesome.

My husband and I have similar taste in movies (action, horror, foreign, sci-fi, superhero, documentary) and I’m grateful for that. He does not like sappy “chick flicks” and in all honesty… neither do I.

I had a female friend throw a hissy because I fell asleep during her fav, “Out of Africa” (I couldn’t make it 20 minutes; it seemed like it was gearing up for the boring long haul and I just couldn’t commit to that s***) and one of my best mates (at the time) and I went to see Titanic and he began blubbering at the end right when I started snickering about the Dicrapio-popsicle. He kinda hated me for that.

I’m an ass****. I know this. But! That doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate sentimentality and romance. Every once in a blue moon my tear ducts start itchin’ for some action and I watch a tearjerker. I recently watched a very sad but beautiful Turkish romance called “Sadece Sen” and enjoyed the misty-eye emotional manipulation. You might like it, but it’s kinda violent in parts.

Some of my most favorite movies are very sad and/or emotional. The Elephant Man owns me and I cry inconsolably every time I see it and my favorite romance is Wings of Desire which is sorta heavy in parts and so beautiful it makes me wistful and hopeful at the same time.

Anyway, I think it’s super that you’re an emotional dude who is moved by music, beauty, and “soft” things, and that you’re confident and comfortable with that. That’s lovely and I say keep your tender sensibilities and stay you.
