Why cant you be vulnerable with the person your in a relationship with?

So I come with this with a heads up that right now I'm not in a relationship. And it is what it is. But I've had discussions with people who feel like they cannot be vulnerable with their companion, with their partner

But in certain communities, like the black community, the Latino community, if you're a man and you reveal too many vulnerabilities to your mate or even to your family, man, they're going to come down hard on you. They're going to say, you ain't being a real man. You ain't really fulfilling your role as a man. So I don't know. I think to some degree the men may carry a heavier burden
