Going by the Article Name I wanted to write a comment even before I read the article. Nice Article though. While I agree to some of what you have to say, being an old timer (thirty something) I don't agree with quite a few of your opinions. I can't speak for all mankind but only myself. My daughter keeps complaining that she never sees me crying and believes that me and her Mom were born to fight. Both are as untrue as the stork who brought her home. I have tried to refute the former allegation though.
So if you are like my daughter, you too would say "Oh men don't cry" or be over judgemental and say "men are insensitive". It is not like men don't feel emotions just that they are conditioned not to express it. Its how the men are brought up. I am sure you have heard Moms telling their little champs... "No... no crying... Brave boys don't cry. Look everyone is watching. You have to be strong and brave"... That my friend is social conditioning. Poor guys are just trying to Man up to the "Man Image". They feel the same/similar emotions as girls under same/similar circumstances. Just that they don't express it and don't react similarly. In fact if the guy is expressing his emotions too openly always suspect his intention maybe just to get to bed real quick. First hand experience speaking. :)
I agree that telling the woman of your dreams that you love her - is very difficult. Specially if you fear that the friendly relationship that you value so much is at risk. But that goes for women too. I don't agree that women are more expressive in terms of love than men specially after the guy has been buckled and fully hitched. They may say more "I love you"s before marriage but afterwards the story is totally different ... Men atleast show passion and say the words while on the job, keeping things really "simple" in your terms. I don't remember when my better half told me she loved me - Most likely she is just avoiding telling a lie. All she keeps saying is "are you done yet"? Just like the proverbial "are we there yet". And its not just my wife. My friends complain about the exact same things. So me and my buddies chose the wrong women or are women like that? I don't know & I guess I don't care. As long as things are simple... I can concentrate on other more important things in life.
But thats just an old timer speaking. You new men and women of this century may be built differently.
