umm...ignore that, 17 year old male last time i cried was at a funeral in december of 2001

i do get teary eyed, this happens in movies and joyous occassions...YES I ADMIT IT, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH SHEDDING A TEAR ONCE IN A WHILE...just don't be crazy about it.

By Jenesaispas (Jenesaispas) on Tuesday, June 29, 2004 - 10:27 pm: Edit

I agree. It is a suitable means of expression. It's the this-is-how-I-feel-and-you-can-see-it kind of expression, without actually haven't so say it.

But I HATE people who are over emotion and cry too much. I just hate emotional people. They make me want to do evil things.

They make me want to do evil things.

oooooh okay ...awkward silence...*coughs* psycho *coughs*

17 year old male.

Do you cry easily?
-No, but rather, I cry when I let all of my problems overwhelm me. Of course, I also have cried as a means of expression. I have to be REALLY sad to cry.

What does it take to make you cry?
-Feeling alone, as if all of my "friends" have abandoned me. Death of someone close.

How often do you cry in a given week?
-Longest I have ever cried is probably three days: when my girlfriend died and when my best friend (who is a girl) did something really mean to me :).

Have you cried this past week? Over what?
-No, I have not.

By Geniusash (Geniusash) on Tuesday, June 29, 2004 - 11:08 pm: Edit

I cry sometimes, mostly from laughter. I also cry during movies and yes, Oprah and Dr. Phil

Do you cry easily?

Nah, not really. I mean, I WOULD if I didn't feel odd about showing emotion in public other than being upbeat, but I am really good at keeping it together. But if I'm by myself I will bawl my eyes out and then pretend like it never happened later :)

What does it take to make you cry?

Well, when I hear about people (on the news for instance) who have total disregard for others' lives and act upon it, that has the potential to make me tear up. Something really sad or tragic can make me cry, too.

If I'm really overtired and exhausted, I COULD end up crying over something stupid, but usually I try to prevent this from happening.

How often do you cry in a given week?

I don't know, it really varies. We will say once or twice.

Have you cried this past week? Over what?

Nope, not yet.

By Tricias (Tricias) on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 - 03:25 am: Edit

Do you cry easily?

Not extremely easily, but pretty easily.

What does it take to make you cry?

I cry when I'm angry.

How often do you cry in a given week?

I don't cry every week.

Have you cried this past week? Over what?

Nope

By Desrtswimer (Desrtswimer) on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 - 03:46 am: Edit

Do you cry easily?

yep, definately so. normally not like bawling but getting teary eyed. i definately wish i wasnt so emotional but i cant help it. so keep that in mind before you bash people who are emotional; i'm sure lots of those people wish they weren't so darn emotional!

What does it take to make you cry?

Not much. feeling like people are mad at me, like ive let someone down, like ive let myself down, when im dissapointed, frustrated, ect.

How often do you cry in a given week?

this is a ridiculous question; depends on the week!

Have you cried this past week? Over what?

yep. friday night. someone insulted me on something i take really personally. normally im fine with getting teased in a joking way but this was something i dont like getting teased about! not like bawling crying though, just tearing up where no one else even knew.

Oh and im a 17 year old female.

By Allena (Allena) on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 - 09:59 am: Edit

Do you cry easily?

No not at all... I can't actually recall the last time I cried.

What does it take to make you cry?

It would have to be something beyond horrific to be honest. I still feel bad about the fact that I normally don't even cry at funerals. I mean, I'm sad and will occasionally feel teary eyed, however it's been a good 10+ years since those tears have actually come down my cheeks.

How often do you cry in a given week?

Well since it's been a good 10 years since I last cried, none.

Have you cried this past week? Over what?
Nope.

Also, I'm a 19 year old male.

By Slayer (Slayer) on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 - 11:05 am: Edit

I'm one of those over emotional people...

Do you cry easily? yes

By Gidget (Gidget) on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 - 11:32 am: Edit

Do you cry easily?

No not really...

What does it take to make you cry?
Death of a someone. I lost three freinds in year so i cried a lot this year.

How often do you cry in a given week?
Not much if at all

Have you cried this past week? Over what?

Also, I'm a 21 year old female

By Philntex (Philntex) on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 - 01:42 pm: Edit

17 y/o male

Do you cry easily?
Most definitely not. It's been so many years since I last cried that I can't even remember.

What does it take to make you cry?
These days, it would take something intensely traumatic (like my mother dying...the only thing I REALLY get teary-eyed about when I think about it).

How often do you cry in a given week?
I don't. But if I did, it'd probably be for a couple of minutes, I guess. I really don't know.

Have you cried this past week? Over what?
No. I just get frustrated a lot, but I don't cry. Maybe my tear ducts are out of whack. hmmm....

Ice must run through my veins ;)

By Muppetcoat (Muppetcoat) on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 - 02:35 pm: Edit

my eyes tear up involuntarily all the dang time. Yawning makes me tear up. Commercials make me tear up. I don't mean to, it just happens. It's not because I'm moved by them or anything, it's totally involuntary.


It's really really really annoying.

By Fhmamii (Fhmamii) on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 - 02:37 pm: Edit

i cry real easily, i'm a big baby lol

the last time i cried was this past sunday when my best guy friend Grant went away to West Point :( i miss him soooo much

oh and i'm 17

By Nmoreno1 (Nmoreno1) on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 - 03:34 pm: Edit

I think I cry too much. Everytime I give a speech that is not terribly sentimentle, suddenly my eyes becomes a haven for tears. I don't know why, but up on stage, I'm the most sensitive person in the world. Oh, and relationship stuff also turns me into a water-bag.

18 male.

By Idiias (Idiias) on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 - 03:52 pm: Edit

yeah me too. i rarely CRY...but i get teary eyed. heck, spider man 2...made me shed a few tears!

By Gianscolere (Gianscolere) on Thursday, July 01, 2004 - 02:52 am: Edit

it takes something really tragic to make me cry. something like the death of a loved one...the last time i cried (what i call "dignified sobbing") was 6 years ago when my grandmother died.

but i did shed a few tears when i left my school for good. it was sad because i lived with these people for a year and basically it ended with a couple of firm handshakes/hugs and a wave "have a nice life. hope to see you in the business world" then we parted. i'll probably never see them again for a long time. parting is never easy for me so that's that. then when my plane took off, i knew i'd miss boston and i was right... it's such a great city, how can i not miss it. finally, i did get teary-eyed watching the notebook (i think everyone with emotions did), but the people sitting behind me were howling and blowing their noses and everything.

By Recordingwater (Recordingwater) on Thursday, July 01, 2004 - 09:09 am: Edit

What's the notebook?

By Jenesaispas (Jenesaispas) on Thursday, July 01, 2004 - 09:52 am: Edit

A movie about love. Somehow there's a notebook tied in. You could probably go to http://www.thenotebookmovie.com to find out more. Hah.

I think it is so cute when a guy cry.... shows they have weaknesses.

By Glowingamy (Glowingamy) on Thursday, July 01, 2004 - 03:03 pm: Edit

15 year old female

Do you cry easily? Yes
What does it take to make you cry? If I'm tired, stupid stuff, like when I was alone the other month reading the end Pippi Longstocking I was blubbering and everything...but most of all I have a horrible fear of being alone when I am old. when I start thinking seriously about that, I can't stop
How often do you cry in a given week? Maybe 1/8 times on average
Have you cried this past week? Over what? Yes, the ending of A Separate Peace

By Idiias (Idiias) on Thursday, July 01, 2004 - 03:24 pm: Edit

you're suppose to say it shows "we have a sensitive side" haha but i guess i should expect that from a girl whose username is "poision ivy"

By Poison_Ivy (Poison_Ivy) on Thursday, July 01, 2004 - 04:16 pm: Edit

^ LOL... the weirdest thing turn me on... i like when a guy can't help but reveal their weaknesses during sadness by shedding a tear or giving a gasp while in pain...

Do you cry easily? Only when I feel I was wrong or depressed.
What does it take to make you cry? Feeling worthless.
How often do you cry in a given week? Once.
Have you cried this past week? Over what? Twice, I gave my heart to Jesus and when my self esteem got so low.

By Allena (Allena) on Thursday, July 01, 2004 - 04:37 pm: Edit

It's funny you mention pain, since so many guys (including myself) refuse to cry at pain no matter how bad it hurts. I joke with my friends, the general rule of thumb I like to go by is if I can A) See a good amount of my Bone, B) Can clearly see through any portion of my torso to the other side, or C) If I have to physically pick the limb up off the ground, I will cry with absolutly no shame. :)

By Recordingwater (Recordingwater) on Saturday, July 03, 2004 - 06:00 am: Edit

I like it when guys cry too. It's so cute. =) My soccer coach cried (a little bit!) at the end of this year because he's leaving us. And he was all saying how we'd been the best team he'd ever had and he was so glad that he got to know us and be our coach and he got a wee bit teary eyed! Everyone on the team was like, awww!!! and crying too because we are all big babies. Hahaha.

By Recordingwater (Recordingwater) on Saturday, July 03, 2004 - 06:00 am: Edit

Btw my soccer coach is only like 25 and is pretty cute, so it's not as weird as some fat 50 year old blubbering. Hahah.

By Voodoochile (Voodoochile) on Saturday, July 03, 2004 - 10:34 am: Edit

Sometimes I feel like crying but I can't or force myself not to cry because I'm a guy and people might laugh at me.

By Francesca (Francesca) on Sunday, July 04, 2004 - 09:46 am: Edit

Do you cry easily? It depends on the situation.
How often do you cry in a given week? I donít cry this much

What does it take to make you cry?
I cry a lot when Iím feeling really stressed or like overwhelmed about something, when I worry, when sad things happen, when I see sad things on the news, when I laugh, when Iím scared, when I watch really really sad moviesÖ pretty much anything can make me cry.

Have you cried this past week? Over what?
I felt guilty the other day because I was reminded that something I had done would unintentionally hurt some people who had been so wonderful to me and who I cared about a lot and that made me cry.

18/f

By Idiias (Idiias) on Sunday, July 04, 2004 - 11:53 am: Edit

will the fireworks tonight even make you cry?

By Spunknic347 (Spunknic347) on Monday, July 05, 2004 - 11:52 pm: Edit

I always cry when I laugh for longer than a few seconds. My friends always laugh at me because I'm always in tears. even if something isn't even that funny i cry. I think i have over-active tear-ducts if that's possible
