Emotionally stunted women

I once believed that women were more emotionally expressive  than men. I believed that women wanted to freely share their inner thoughts and feelings and looked for the same in their partners. While I have the privilege of knowing at least one woman like this, I have learned that, when it comes to many women, nothing could be further from the truth.

Some women are emotionally stunted, particularly when it comes to expressing tenderness, passion and romantic love. These same women have little problem expressing friendship, and can seem affable and intelligent. They also have little problem expressing hostility.

I'd love to get some thoughts on this, especially from other women.
