I sometimes worry that I’m too unemotional. I’ve been accused of talking, writing, thinking and acting “like a man” many times before, which I’ve always taken as someone else’s observation that I’m not into the frilly, touchy-feely stuff of life. I have a low tolerance for pillow-weepers, for one. Unless it’s Lloyd Dobler, I’m not really interested in man-tears, especially after (or during) sex. Incidentally, that was one of the worst parts of the Fifty Shades of Grey book – after every sex act, it felt like Ana Steele started weeping. STOP CRYING. I don’t even like men who have that “pillow-weeper look” which can basically be summed up as: Jim Sturgess.
So, maybe that’s why I’ve never been into Ryan Gosling. Maybe somewhere, in the deepest recesses of my mind, I realized that Gosling is what I hate/fear the most: a guy who cries after sex. At least that’s what one “source” tells Star Magazine in their cover story this week, which is all about normal, non-celebrity people who have dated celebrities. The Gosling story is one of the best!
Ryan Gosling brought movie fans to tears in The Notebook. But on one date, it was Ryan who turned on the waterworks.
“He was the best lover I’ve ever had,” recalls a curvy blonde, who shared a night of passion with Ryan after meeting him at a nightclub. But once the lovemaking was over, things took a turn.
“I thought I heard him sniffling,” she says. “Then I realized he had tears gushing down his face. I asked if he was all right, and he said he gets emotional sometimes.”

I’m not completely heartless. If you’re in a committed, loving relationship, I could see how a dude crying after sex would be a good thing, a sign of true emotional maturity. But this was a one night stand!!! Is this really who Ryan is in real life? Is he the guy who cries after hot sex with a random club girl?
