Women should be clear as to what they want in a man.
Women, like men, can have anything they want. It's just a matter being clear on what they want.
In a man's mind, he doesn't feel free to share feelings, hurts, or disappointments with men or women. If he does he'll appear weak.
He's afraid women will not find him attractive if he behaves like a woman and he has good reasons keep emotions to himself.
His display of confidence and strength doesn't mean he doesn't have have feelings. Men get hurt easily. They just don't show it.
