Today, I asked my boyfriend to try and man up and act a bit tougher. He started crying. FML

haha. what a loser he is.

why r u with another girl?

If you want a tougher boyfriend break up with this guy and get someone else. If you want to stay with him than don't try to change him YDI.

your so right on that

17 and 23 pretty much explain all that needs to be said. YDI

23: a real man should never hit a woman

#30, neither sex should hit the other.

32- Agreed. But I came in wondering if OP would rather he pimp-slap her for mouthing off.. OP- change attitudes or change boyfriends. Changing your boyfriend is a bitch move.

some people cant. autism

"try and man up"..really?? you must mean "try to"...

he acts more girly than you FYL

that's when you grab his nuts to make sure he has a pair, and if not you just start singing the mangina song

Even horribly abusive men will cry, you ignorant fools.

HEY men have feeling too. o^o

#32 Aww, does that mean I should stop beating my bf? XP

therealfamily guy ^WIN as always!

OP is a heartless bitch XD

218, if he's gay, WTF is he doing with a girl?

Hey the guy needs to toughen up a bit, you can't just cry all your problems away.

It's not as if she called him a pussy after getting hit by a car and crying. She just asked him to toughin up a bit, and if he starts crying after that he does, in fact, need it. It's not narrow minded, just realistic.

There's nothing wrong with being emotionally sensitive. He could have a mental disorder that makes his emotional stability more fragile (just a guess).

While I agree that gender stereotypes are horrible and restrictive, I think there is nothing wrong with wanting a Partner who is not a "Wussy" or "Cry Baby" or acts "Tougher". (all gender-neutral terms) If OP isn't happy with who her bf truly is, she needs break up with him or at least stop shaming him. He sounds like he might have some issues that need to be worked out; maybe she can help him work through them, if she truly cares about him.

My boyfriend cries at a lot of things. I love it. I think it's awesome he's able to express himself and that he's comfortable around me. The reason males commit suicide more is because people don't like them to talk about their feelings and that sucks.

He just wishes you could both get along like you did in middle school. He just wants to bake a cake made out of rainbows and smiles that you could both eat and be happy.

Ahh, Mean Girls. Always the perfect reference. Haha

You can never have enough Mean Girls references.

D: that would be an awesome cake...

SHE DOESNT EVEN GO HERE!

^ bahaha awesome :)

by any chance is this the same guy who posted on fml the other day saying that his girlfriend wanted to try dating women...and that this was not the first time he had encountered this?...concidence or Deja vu?

How is this Deja vu? That guy's girlfriend was leaving him for a girl, and it was the second time that'd happened to him. In this case, however, the young lady just wants her man to act tougher. In response to this request he cried. So. Yeah. That's a NO. I love how i used 'that'd' up there. I haven't written it in so long that I'd forgotten of it's existence. Thank you FML.

At least he didn't come out.

not yet anyways..

haha, awe

maybe he's waiting until she notices that he's gay cause he's afraid of her. Ohh, maybe she's tougher than him but really really thick... :D

wow you just ripped up a collectable lol. you young find sensitive STRAIGHT guys anywhere lol. good luck with your next bf slamming your cornhole every minute lol

I hope your next boyfriend beats you mercilessly.

Chris Brown that ho!

I hope you girlfriends shove lead pipes up your asses every night :D
