How often do you.....

cry? I almost never cry - am somewhat emotionally 'flat'. I don't know too many others like me - are you? I wonder why that is??? My sister is a regular faucet, emoting over everything - we are like opposites. Sometimes I wish I felt things more deeply..... (I am 45...)

  • I never cry. Unless I'm watching a movie where an animal gets hurt.

  • Usually about once a month. And yes, it has to do with that nasty thing all us ladies get :/ I get depressed and ball my eyes out one day.

  • I'm one of the highly sensitive ones. I cry when I'm angry, I cry when I'm sad, I cry when I'm happy, I cry when other people cry, etc. It's seriously irritating and I wish I had some control over it. I probably cry once every week or so.

  • I hardly ever cry. My mom used to worry about me. She would try to rent movies such as West Side Story, in hopes of making me cry. Never worked, lol. Crying is usually just a symptom of pregnancy for me. It is a sign my hormones are out of whack and something is going on. My brothers are both very emotional people. They are like my mom, I take after my dad.

  • I cry a couple times a year probably. More when I'm pregnant, but not often outside of pregnancy.

  • I tend to let things build up then I cry out of frustration and stress. Not good to hold it in.

  • I used to never, ever cry. Like something BIG had to happen for me to cry. Ever since I had DD, though, I cry more often. I think it coincided with me not cutting myself anymore (after I got pregnant, I stopped, except for slipping up twice after I had her), because I started working on other ways to express my emotion and I was out of my parents house, where I had always been taught NOT to show emotions very often. Now, I get really emotional when I PMS and I tear up some, but I still don't cry a lot.
