John, you’re completely entitled to your opinion. Honestly, though, I MEAN what I write. As a therapist, I value vulnerability. The stereotypes you wrote of are real — and that’s a sad truth. I’m so sorry you’ve had such a negative experience expressing your feelings to women. I hope that changes because I’m witnessing it changing — every day for folks. There are men out there who don’t feel wimpy being open and who view tears as courageous. I have hope for a better world. I sense a glimmer of it in you too. (Call me an optimist). Word to the wise: don’t start a post by calling yourself a troll, as you’re discounting your words right off the bat.

We can agree to disagree. I’m good with that :).
