Many modern women – and men – can agree that finding a man who will open up to you about his emotions can sometimes be hard to do. In many cities and towns, even in 2016, men can be conditioned to regulate their emotions and hide their feelings in favor of prescribing to certain societal expectations.
Luckily, there is good news for the more emotionally inclined among us! In some cities across the United States, it’s easier to find a man who is willing to bare his soul and make a genuine connection than in others.

Sensitivity and the modern man
Sure, some people still believe in the idea of a caveman with bravado, or a man who values fists over feelings, as being more “masculine” than a man who has more sensitive traits. But we’re here to tell you, with the help of Psychology Today, that being a sensitive man has some distinct advantages in the modern world.
