It is all the time, sometimes and rarely ever. If so do you know why you lack empathy? What ways do you try to empathize?

I empathize, but if there has been dishonesty before I can't, esp not for the ex.

I don't lack empathy. I empathize too much.

i do lack sympathy/empahty for most people, even my kids!  I really dont care if they cry or i tell them to "get over it", if they cry about somethin and i dont see blood.  I do believe most people in the world are "whiners" and i cant stand listening to them, so i tend not to care much.

My level of sympathy is usually higher but I empathize well in certain situations. It's often to my detriment, though; if I feel I relate to another's circumstance, I do less "common sense" thinking/helping than emotional. I react and reach out with more of a "I want to help regardless" that lacks logistics.
