Guys Reveal The Last Thing That Made Them Cry

There's a lot of pressure placed on men to be "manly" and "man up." Essentially, don't ever share your feelings and reveal what's bothering you. Fortunately, more progressive heads are prevailing and it's becoming more commonplace for men to open up, share what's made them sad, and for it to be more than okay, as evidenced by the stories below.


Reddit user, u/jintaravalerie, wanted men to open up and admit:

Men, what's the last thing that made you cry?

"It's Not Time To Make A Change..."

Music can set me off. There's plenty of songs that just make my emotions well up inside me, either due to the lyrics or the music itself.

Something To Happy To Cry About

My sister got married last week.

Normally I'm very stoic, but I cried like a baby. Bawling my eyes out during my speech.

I'm still getting sh-t about it.

The Inability To Move

I've been experiencing neurological issues and yesterday I lost the ability to lift some fingers in my left hand. It really freaked me out and I cried. Fortunately my hand feels much better today!

The Happiest Loss In The World

My brother recently got engaged and I couldn't be happier for him, however when I think about it I think that I'm losing my best friend and we're going to grow further apart. Slowly stop doing things and just fall away from each other. Crazy and completely ungrounded fear but its there lol. Seeing how happy she makes him though definitely helps push those thoughts out.

The euthanization of one of my dogs (dachshund/beagle mix) back in October 2018.

I still get misty-eyed whenever I'm feeding my now-only dog (Yorkie) because I still sometimes grab the other dog's food bowl when I'm making his food.

She had to be put down due to a disease that can be common in her breed. I keep getting told it wasn't my fault and that I was a great owner, but I still think that I may have had some fault in it.

I miss you, Lady...

When You Meant More Than You Thought To Them

I just found out my childhood friend died. We haven't spoken really in years. I talk to his brother sometimes. We actually were never really great friends, I always thought he didn't really like me. But I was the kid across the street, so we were friends. Every summer, every birthday, every snow day, I would play with him and his brother. He handed me my first X-Men comic and showed me The Simpsons for the first time.

He was always cooler than me. I was their Blue Ranger, their Donatello, their Tum Tum. I found out through Facebook yesterday. Wondering how it happened and how is family was coping.

His brother called me a couple hours ago and told me himself. He told me he thought to call me because I was important to his family. I had no idea I was more than just the kid across the street to them.

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.

People Break Down Which Movies They Wish They Could Watch Again For The First Time

There are several movies I've watched so many times I think the viewings outnumber the days I've lived.

And much like a favorite tv series or movie, who wouldn't love to start again anew?

Experiencing that first time but with that feeling of... "I'm gonna love this forever."

We never appreciate the first time enough.

But that's life.

Warning: there are spoilers below.

Non-Sexual Things That Strangely Turn People On

There is no one way to anybody's heart or libido.

Sexy doesn't always have to equal raunchy.

I've known people turned on by music, books, nature, and even funerals (don't ask).

What starts someone's engine is a mystery.
