    Men... What Makes you do a Manly Weep?

    For me, it's beautiful things. Like powerful, patriotic speeches or beautiful female singers. I like to see people overcome things under impossible circumstances.

    What makes you say there's dust in your eye?

    i think my first 'manly' cry was when i heard ronald reagan had died.

    saving private ryan always gets me at the end, when capt. miller goes down and tells ryan, "earn this."

    When I see pictures of my 2 year old daughter pre-kidney transplant and really realize how far she's come since her surgery in March.

    The end portion of 3:10 to Yuma always get me too.

    My current life situation. I cried silently in bed the other night next to my "girlfriend". Any of the animal movies: This is the ALF. Your Mommy Kills Animals, etc.My boss telling me I'm exactly like her partner who commited suicide. I have 8hrs a day to think about all kinds of ****; most of it makes me want to destroy the planet.

    You should get help. Sounds like you need to spill your guts to a qualified professional to unload at least some of your baggage. There's nothing wrong with doing that.

    Everyone hates doing that. But you gotta get stuff off your mind and into the ear of someone who can supply sound advise, don't you think?

    I never cry because of pain (except the other night my cat somehow hooked his claw onto the inside of my nostril, which made my eye turn into a faucet). But, I saw something so weird on a ride.

    This dude (grown man, my age) ate sh|t on a ride and he started crying! It was so weird, I had to leave the group. Very uncomfortable.

    that is awkward! i had a panic attack on the side of the trail, and started bawling my eyes out, flipped my shyt, and threw my bike against a tree. when i my group saw me, i had to lie and say it was asthma. embarrassing! ...and shameful. even as a gal.

    What A Bunch Of Pu$$ies......

    Real men don't cry. They sure as hell never reveal that they cry on an internet forum.
    Cryin' little b!tches. Want your Mommy?
    Almost makes me want to go find a dark place to cry for the sorry state of manhood. Almost.

    Your eyes watered because of the pain, but you didn't cry. A grown man actually crying because of pain is not right.

    I think once you hit puberty you can no longer cry due to pain, for both guys and gals.

    I can understand tears in the eyes and a lot of 'ow that fricken hurt' but actual crying after a spill on the trail? I couldnt picture a grown adult male doing that!

    I cried when the neighbors dog killed my cat, or the neighbor killed him, not sure. Also cried at the loss of my mother, at her funeral... it was so final, knew I'd never see her again. Cancer is a cruel killer.

    Loss of ones I love is the most painful....

    It has been years since actual crying or tears, but watching my kids play, learn, interact w/ each other, etc. really gets to me. They are amazing.

    And, the first 10 minutes or so of the Disney movie "Up." Can't ever explain to my kids what is going on because of that lump in my throat.

    Earlier this year while dropping my youngest off at school we stopped because one of his friends was sitting curbside crying. His father had just draged him out of the car by his neck/throat and left him there. He hadn't had breakfast and was terrified. I gave him my sons packed lunch to eat, took him to school and left him with his teacher and the school counsellor. This kid was 10 at the time. I didn't cry but there were tears in my eyes while explaining what had happened.

    I shed a tear both times I helped bring my kids into the world.

    I am ashamed that I cried when my first marriage ended but I think that was more about the fear of what might happen with the kids.

    Put me in the category of the typical guy that doesn't cry, even at family funerals. But let me share our last day with our horse. A wonderful quarter horse we had for 10 years, named Buffy. My wife and daughter rode him, but to me, he was my buddy, my land-based goldfish, as I often called him. Man, we loved that horse. A gentle soul who never misbehaved and whose big brown eyes would look right through you down to your soul.

    Over time, he became weaker and weaker, and we could no longer ride him. Weaker still, he started to fall over in the barn. It was time to put him down. So, that last day, the three of us went to him, loaded with all the treats he liked the best. We gave him treats and said our goodbyes. I still recall looking into those eyes and seeing pain, weakness, resignation, but also the kindness, although diminished by the suffering.

    It's one thing to face death when it's not at your hand, but it's another thing altogether to face when you are making the decision to end a life. Eventually we could stall no longer. It was time to go. It was time for him to go.

    As we all turned and walked away to return to the car, I felt it coming. It was a foreign feeling at first, since I had not experienced it since I was a child. The tears started to flow and that strange feeling of having trouble catching my breath to talk. All three of us are in the car crying at this point. Hell, I couldn't drive for a moment.

    But it was time to go, so we left. But, he's with us still and always will be. Buffy, one fine horse who taught me it's okay to shed a tear.

    I've stopped welling up every morning, during work and randomly at night. It wasn't full-blow cry more like water at the rim of my eyes and feeling like I'm suffocating even though I am taking deep breaths. I guess falling in love with someone who meets all of your critiria for the first time in your life, having her say she loves you too and then leave you and act like you never dated hurts more than I thought it would. I'm over it now. Now I'm just angry all the time and have a shorter fuse than normal (which was hella short to begin with). If I could just find a place to live I swear things would look up.

    I can't watch an Ironman video without getting a little 'dust' in my eyes. I could care less about the pros but watching the amputees, over weight people, cancer survivors and the people literally breaking down and crawling during the run just amazes me.

    Definitely a sad day. BTW, when I was stationed at 8th and I in DC, I marched in his funeral procession on the National Mall.

    Saying goodbye to my buddy Elliot this morning as he died while I caressed and stroked him has had me in a manly weep, and at times outright sobbing, all day.

    Men... What Makes you do a Manly Weep?-elliot.jpg

    He was the sweetest, happiest dog we've ever had. Even though he was wracked with cancer and wasting away to nothing the past week, he still had the strength to greet me at the door with a smile and his tail wagging yesterday.
    Finally, he was having trouble even breathing last night, so we decided this morning that it was time to put an end to his struggle and let him die in peace. This was the seventh time we've had to have a pet (and family member) euthanized and each time I've had the privilege to be there for them as they passed away. It's hard as hell every time, but after all the unconditional love and joy they've given us, I consider it my duty and obligation to be there for them.

    Bye buddy, we're sure gonna miss you.

    While I served as part of the Honor Guard from Ft. Sill in '89, I'd think about the 'soldier at rest' getting this honor, and was usually able to hold back a tear until after the funeral....

    My kid being (mis) diagnosed with cancer. Pets dying, people dying. Funerals, Music, Pachelbel's Canon-live about 5 feet away, it was the most beatiful thing I have ever heard in my life. 'Reality' shows where people are kind and generous to others.

    I was raised to be one of those manly men that doesn't cry, at all. It has caused my wife to get pissed off at me in the past because I didn't cry when she was, or thought I should be. But this past Monday afternoon I had tears in my eyes.
    I am deployed to S America right now. This past Friday we had an individual here commit suicide. I didn't know the guy at all, not even sure if I had seen him over the couple months he's been here, so this didn't affect me in any way. But on Monday, they held a small memorial service before loading his body on a plane to transport him back to the states. I stood there and watched a 20 something year old man stand in front of everyone and start crying while trying to say a little piece about the deceased that he knew well and cared for. I don't think there was a dry eye in the room. Keep in mind, I won't cry at a funeral of someone I do know. I usually won't tear up at all if it's a woman crying, because they do that a lot. But I have a hard time not tearing up when watching a grown man cry over something like this.
