Question Women, do you want a really emotional man?

I have personality disorders and psychosis that make me lack a lot of emotional depth. I even have trouble bonding with people in the forum as a result of this. This place and these people actually make me realize how cold I really am(I don't really know if that's good or bad).

I'm just wondering how emotional a man has to be for women to desire him as a partner. Sometimes I think women want a guy who's like a rock basically. I've actually heard women say this before, since the women were so emotional they didn't want a guy who was the same. I think it was for convenience.

personally, I like a guy to not be in complete denial of his feelings...

it doesn't make you fucking manly to not show emotion.



I know i wouldn't be compatible with someone who wasn't a little fucked up, or didn't have a few scars, or some sort of story behind them...

I've got a lot of baggage, and it's not that i'm looking for someone to to carry it all, but it's nice to have someone who can understand and empathize, as apposed to just being like, oh that sucks, and turn around and just be like, damn, my girl's a crazy bitch...

not saying that i'm in anyway sane, but that's what makes me fun.

and then i kind of has a motherly complex, not saying that i want to baby someone, it's just i feel a need to try and help people. I'd rather help than be help.


really, i think if i guy is willing to let his guard down and really bear his soul out there... it's kinda amazing, seeing as it pretty much goes against everything society tells you to do.

Before I was sure i liked cold and reserved types, not showing much feeling, keeping distance, ect. I used to always be that way myself. So i guess i thought we'd be compatible then. My current man is kinda like that, not emotional or sensitive, pretty logical and intelligent, and i still find that hot, even though i would really want to be taken care of and maybe even pampered sometimes, as any woman, especially when he's someone you love. the good thing about it is less drama and unnecessary fights. As i've discovered myself, i think i wouldn't be able to live with someone like me, i'm really capable of strong feelings and very passionate, but that comes along with impulsiveness and crazy mood swings, so i don't really think i would get along with another emotional sensitive psycho like me. Well, there should be a limit. a man should remain a man, but he should also not forget how to treat a woman.

I don't like it when someone stifles their emotions, but as someone who is entirely non-lovey dovey, who isn't very outwardly emotional, who doesn't say sweet little things all the time... I don't think I could put up with a guy that would. Things like giving a girl flowers, making a big romantic gesture? They make me entirely uncomfortable. I think most girls actually PREFER a romantic, lovey dovey guy who is all about his feelings and cries at movies and songs... but for me, as a non-romantic, non-lovey dovey girl who ISN'T all about feelings who never cries about inconsequential things... a guy like that wouldn't work out for me. It just wouldn't work. I would constantly be embarrassed and uncomfortable and have no idea how to interact with him.

For me, a guy needs to be comfortable with having feelings, but he doesn't need to dwell on them and thing about them 24/7 and live his whole life based on emotions... I need someone who is more logical than emotional. I don't see why emotions are seen as a purely feminine trait. As a woman, I don't understand why me being more logical than emotional causes people to see me as masculine, or a guy being the opposite of me leads to him being seen as feminine.

Everyone has emotions. You can meet the most rock hard guy (in the eyes of a woman that loves him) and find out he's a total softie.

i like strong ppl who know who they are
if such a person cries then its one thing
if then there is this guy who loves to be all sensitive and likes in a way to be such then i def-ly dont like it
actually it doesnt matter if he is sensitive or not- FAKE is what i hate

Agreed.

I think it's only natural to want to understand women better. As a teenager, I didn't have a clue. I'm still learning...
