Let’s face it – as guys, we’re not really big on emotions. We don’t go out to the bar and tell each other, “Dude, why don’t we talk about our feelings over a couple of drinks?”
For the most part, that’s just not how we roll. I mean, I’d wager a lot of guys have been brought up to think that showing emotion is a sign of weakness.
Chalk it up to the old-school way of thinking, I guess. And that’s probably why we tend to go a bit overboard with the “Crazy” label when our wives or girlfriends get emotional from time to time.
Honestly, I think it’s a good idea if we scaled back a bit on the “crazy” comments just because they’re not dead stoic like some of us. This funny video makes a good point of that:
Sure, the ladies in our lives can get a tad unreasonable from time to time, but playing the crazy card doesn’t really work unless she’s doing something that’s genuinely insane.
For example, if her actions justify calling the police or getting the fire department involved, then it’s safe to say she isn’t all “up there”.
(And trust me, I’ve dated more than a few of these women myself to know the difference.)
Is it too much of a stretch to say that showing a bit of emotion is healthy? Again, I’m not talking about extremes here – like say, someone’s girlfriend smashing his car or setting his clothes on fire.
(If you’re dating a girl like that, you need to RUN away…and get a restraining order while you’re at it.)
