Sensitive Men

On Empathy
If you can't empathise with people that means you aren't, to a degree, emotionally intelligent.

Also, being empathic does not mean you're sensitive. It's just a part of how we connect together as human beings.


On Expression
Just because a man chooses to express himself does not automatically mean he's sensitive. As an adult, it is your responsibility to manage your emotions. Expression, as well as how you express, is fundamental to your mental well-being. People who bottle up feelings because of fear of hurting others or what other people think are going to regret it in their later years. It could resort to being depressed or becoming some passive aggressive moron.


Last point to make. I think a lot of people are sensitive to different things. I think the sort of person who is too sensitive to suggestions, criticism and banter are rather bothersome. They tend to be like this due to negative experiences and put downs during up bringing.

I am oversensitive.

I haven't met a sensitive man before... other than myself.

There isn't any shame in that, it's healthy to let your emotions out. Also, I think a lot of men are sensitive. They just tend to bottle it up because they feel like or are told that they are supposed to do that.

I believe that a lot of teenage boys end up being raised by their peers and end up developing some warped view of what masculinity is. It's very sad to be honest.

All men are sensitive. Male ego is fragile. Just because some men don't cry doesn't mean they aren't sensitive.

I agree wholeheartedly. It's a pretty big problem to be honest, but things are starting to get better slowly, at least. People are becoming a bit more tolerant.

I'm definitely not sensitive. I value logic and reason over emotions any day. And I can be super critical of people's feelings, which gets me into trouble sometimes.

It depends when they're sensitive. If it's like from a sad scene from a movie, I think that's literally so adorable.

I'm sensitive when the one I love is in pain.

Totally admirable. But I also expect that sensitiveness to spark some type of anger and some fighting for the cause of the specific loved one in pain.

I was just lying to fit in with you. I can't feel love. Or pain.

Sensitive? No. Empathetic? Yes.

One of the most basic and important lessons in humanity my mum ever taught me. It's helped me greatly in life.


Empathy is something worth learning. Your mom did great in teaching you that

Please jump off a cliff then, I don't need your artificial feelings. But you can feel pain, you are human.

Can someone elaborate here for me? What exactly do you consider "sensitive"?

I don't like sensitive men, or sensitive people in general. But I don't want them to be a block of wood either. I want my man to be well, a MAN. But not too much of one....UGH...OK, LET'S SAY THAT I LIKE THEM IN BETWEEN.
