Man, I miss old music.
Anywho, in Ralph Tresvant’s song, he sings: “You need a man… with…. sensitivity. A man like me.”
I don’t consider myself a sensitive person; I can count on one hand the people who’ve actually seen me cry about something (one of them did a sneak attack!) so I don’t want a crybaby, whiny man. I’ve never met these guys but from the stories on some of the blogs I frequent, they exist.
That being said, I found out that having a man who is in touch with his feelings and can communicate them to me is very imporant. I hate guessing. I also love that a man is forward with his feelings and doesn’t wait for me to initiate (aka Takes Control). I have that now and I have been spoiled. Funny, I would have never put this on my list before- it was something I never really thought about.
Tears from men are acceptable, for instance, if someone dies, or if he’s hurt, or while watching his bride walk down the aisle, etc., Something about seeing a man cry makes me want to cry. I’d freak out if I saw his tears often though. I’d prolly start riding him out, just as I do my homegirl who sheds tears easy -but remember this is coming from a not-so-sensitive girl. Is there a such thing as being too sensitive? At what point does he turn into E.Lynn (wrkct: Damon) status?
Ladies- how do you feel about a man and his sensitivity?
Men: What are your thoughts? How open with your feelings are you? Do you prefer a sensitive woman?
