    Showing emotion for the right thing is a sign of strength. Just don't over do it.
    Tearing up on appropriate matters...acceptable. Bawling in front of me (except for the aforementioned issues)...totally unacceptable.

    If you are here to see me about retaining me as your attorney....for god's sake don't cry...save that for your therapist. They're hourly rates are cheaper anyway.

    But crying when you receive my bill is acceptable and expected. :)

    And attorneys wonder why most people hate them...

    :p

    Female
    Best; the smell and feel of a woman you love
    Worst; non-stop yapping about nothing. j/k

    Male
    Best; strength.
    Worst; bragging.

    Okay...here's goes...(and I will respond of the opposite sex):

    Best: Empathy, I think, emotional openness. Most men--not all--seem too closed up about showing emotions usually.

    Worst: Thinking they're fat when they're NOT. :p

    Interesting thread. Wondering...do you all find it attractive when the person of the opposite sex possesses qualities of your own sex that you don't expect to find in the opposite sex? For example: for women, do you find it attractive when the man is empathetic? And for men, do you find it attractive when a woman is more rational and logical than emotional?

    Hmmm...interesting. Possibly. I mean, I fell in love with Shannon because her meanness is so...attractive. :D

    worst in men: not being able to read between the lines
    worst in women: expecting men to be able to read between the lines.

    best in men: protectiveness, wanting to fix whatever is wrong.
    best in women: empathy
    I smile because I don't know what the heck is going on.

    Best trait in men- Besides the obvious physical traits, (butts, shoulders, chests, eyes) they tend to be straightforward and shy away from drama.

    Worst trait in men - They don't want to listen to me talk talk talk talk. They shy away from my drama. :mad:

    OHHH... and they pretend they want to snuggle, but what they really want is to sex. You can't just hug them, or snuggle with them without them thinking it needs to end in sex.

    As long as you were tearing up in appreciation of a good venison steak!!

    Off topic...a judge was interviewing an 8 year old today. She lives on a farm. She mentioned that they have 2 bulls and the judge asked her what her father was going to do with them. She shrugged her shoulders and said, "maybe we'll eat them". I was sort of horrified at the thought, but kept it to myself. We all sort of chuckled. Then the judge asked if they had names. And she said "Yes. One is T-Bone and the other is Sirloin". I'm guessing they are going to eat them.
