Crying at "chick Flix" does that make me less

I like chick flix. Romance is a fun thing for me. I often cry when I watch something really sad in a movie. Does that make me less of a man?

I avoid "Mad Max" and Chainsaw movies. I avoid horror movies.

Jim Brown getting dusted at the end of "Dirty Dozen" gets to me every time.

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

I think a man (or a person really) is defined by what he does, not how he feels. Crying during chick flicks, or when a pet dies etc, is fine as long as you are not debilitated by your emotions.

I cried like a baby when I had to bring my cat in to have it put down - it had incurable cancer. But I did do what I had to do, I didn't ask someone else to do it for me.

I am also emotionally affected by some movies. I think its a sign of empathy, which is generally a good thing.

When a tragedy happens, you have to be strong for your family. The balance of that is you need a time when you do not have to be strong for your family, and films are perfect for that.

Lots of men quietly settle down on their own, hidden from their family, and secretly watch a "romantic" film with a box of tissues.

Nothing to be ashamed of!

I seem to be more snifflely when my Testosterone is down. Or as I think of it now when I am suffering from Estrogen poisoning.

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

There is one scene which seriously gets to me, to the point of me leaving the room if anyone else is around.

The kids like "A Knight's Tale" with Heath Ledger. Good movie if you've never seen it. Ledger's dad sends him off to be a knight's squire when he was 10 or so, in order to give him the opportunity to have a better life. Implicit is the fact that it nearly killed his dad to do it. 10 years later Ledger returns home to see his dad, who's now blind. His dad's reaction when he realizes that it's his son KILLS my ass. I get a little sloppy just typing about it.

But I can't say that's a typical reaction to any movie.

I'm not ashamed of it. My wife and I watch these together. It's a matter of who cries first.

I have been exploring my feminine self for many years now. I am a man in every respect. I see no contradiction between the two.

No.

Ex loved those sappy movies. I, however, was never able to stay awake long enough to have any emotion one way or another.

I like that movie!

If you didn't get emotional during movies or even TV shows, I'd have to wonder if you were even human!
