  1. My “love language” it physical touch, and I could really use a hug. Not a hey, haven’t seen you in a while quit pat on the back hug, but a full on squeeze me and let me know it’s ok to set my burdens aside because I support you hug.

  2. I feel like I’m not being listened to, or understood ALOT of the time. Even simple things need to be repeated several times, it’s gotten to a point where I just couldn’t be bothered even saying what I want to.

    The other day a coworker simply said “hey man, sorry I wasn’t really paying attention. I am now could you please repeat that now that I am listening?”

    I Dam near broke down in tears in the middle of the office.

  3. I don’t need “not to sound feminine”. And if I want emotional support I’d ask a female friend. They’ve been the best for me at supporting and giving advice.

    I don’t know why i got downvoted, i was just answering the question by my own experience 🙂

  4. Are guys still worried about sounding feminine? I’ll straight up tell my buddies that I feel like shit about myself and just need a night to all hangout and laugh and drink beer. They’re there for me.

  5. I’m not scared of sounding feminine, the problem is people not understanding or not taking it seriously.

    I have genuine problems with talking about my emotions. I often can’t even put a name on what I’m feeling. That’s probably because of lack of experience I’m really scared that if I say anything about my interests or fears people will use it against me.

    There is only public knowledge and nobody-should-know knowledge.

  6. Hey, the emotional support I would want would be people siding with me because the other party is full of garbage and has the support of their peers even though the peers themselves know that they’re wrong.

    That is sounding feminine, Why “feminine ” ? A true man is a man comes from the heart and is humble and to be humble you got to recognize your limitations and that wearing these down will annoy you besides the person who’s wearing you down it’s annoying to have these limitations but, nature sets them not us and a true man acknowledges his place in nature.
