'Seeing men being affectionate with each other really makes me happy on the inside.'
Men rarely express their emotions and vulnerabilities. From a young age, most men are expected not to express their feelings. With everyone around them actively discouraging them from expressing love and affection, even with extremely close friends and family, it can be difficult for men to open up when they grow up. With the expectation to not be outwardly affectionate, many men haven't learned the skill to navigate their emotionality. It's adorable to see men being affectionate with one another. User u/violinfiddleman shared a wholesome video on Reddit's popular subreddit r/MadeMeSmile that shows how men react when affection is given to them. In a now-viral video, a hairdresser is seen kissing his customers on the forehead after a haircut.
The video, titled "This video brightens my day every single time I watch it," has more than 88,000 upvotes and hundreds of comments.
In the video, no one seemed to mind and smiled—or heartily laughed—at his gesture. The video is garnering a lot of love and support from users.
