To generally answer the question; Yes.
Recently i've lost my Grandfather... very tragic loss; First person to hold me always went to him for advice etc...
Found one of my best friends; and he mentioned my grandfather down the road a little bit and i just broke down; Having not really cried at the funeral at all... [ sucking it up as much as possible ] but just broke down really bad.
The words shared were " Hard as hell to deal with this i'm good now though"

It depends. I lost my grandmother fairly recently, in July, but I didn't cry because I felt I had to be there for my dad who was hit fairly hard by the loss. I think the only times I've cried since childhood were due to my depression.

Yes. January 10, 2011. When Auburn kicked a field goal with 1 second left to win the National Championship. According to the Big Book Of Guys, this is permitted and even encouraged.

I'm male and I haven't cried since I was about 14. Before that, I was basically cried more than anyone else in the family. I was bullied alot, and sometimes I did cry in front of other males. At 14, I thought "I can't cry in front of teenage boys, because they'll ridicule me even worse than they did in middle school". I basically shut off my tears when I started high school. I turned into a very angry teenager. I would mask sadness with rage. Looking back, it wasn't healthy. To this day, I haven't cried because I basically shut it off.

Where can I find this mystical tome of knowledge?

I most certainly have and would. I lost some really good friends on deployment and could give a fat baby's belly button if anyone considered shedding tears {over those whom shed blood for Myself,my Team, and my Country} unmanly.

Ohh Rahh!

I cry in front of other guys and/or in public. I pretty much bawled entirely through my mother's cousin's funeral when I was almost 17. The both of us were going to check out my grandmothers shore house for some contracting stuff (he was a contractor), and I was going to use the opportunity to come out to him, because we were close and he was gay. I chickened out at the last minute and he was in a fatal car crash on the way home.

I dated a guy later on that had the same macho no crying thing, he seemed to dislike his inability to cry.

OK. OK, I cried when I watched Marley & Me. Even more so when I watched Hachi I had a 60 pound lab in my lap & I was hanging on to her for dear life. Yeah BIG dog lover here!!! If those movies didn't move you then you don't have a soul.

Uff da! ^^^ If Marley & Me doesn't get to you, nothing will!

I've never broken down and wept in front of men or women for as long as I can remember, but sometimes it's impossible not to have some leakage around the eyes. I try to hide it from men, women and children. I don't like it when anyone feels sorry for me. When my late wife died several years ago I cried like a baby every day for nearly a year, but I did it alone.
