Why does it take guys longer to adnit their feelings?

Hi Jordan,

Why does it take guys longer to admit their feelings?  

First of all that is an assumption that may or may not be true. But lets go with it and answer the question, shall we?

It takes guys longer to admit their feelings because it takes them longer to formulate the question.

Let's look at YOUR question first of all. Here is what the question DOESN'T say. Feelings about what? Whose feelings are you talking about, yours or someone else's?  Are you talking about feelings about other people, stamp collecting, politics...? Are you really asking me why someone won't admit their feelings to you, or you to them?

You see, Jordan, you took the time to get on the internet come to AllExperts, find the right category, find the person who answers those questions, and what do you do? You ask a question that is missing all the real information that allows me to answer you!

Guys or Gals, who want to get in touch with feelings have to be able to ask exactly what it is they want. To do this they need to pay attention to what exactly they are feeling.  Only when you can then put it into words so that you or anyone else can understand what you want can an answer be forthcoming.

So how about taking some time to think about what you REALLY want to ask me, and then send me a follow-up question that is clear and contains all the details that will make yours and my time worthwhile.  You never know, Jordan, it might be fun and insightful.
