Quick non scientific poll

Women – Do you cry too much? Do you cry a lot? What makes you cry? Are you a self described cry baby? Does your male partner cry too? What do you think of that?

Men – do you cry? When? Do you think your wife or female significant other cries too much? Do you think crying on your part is threatening to your masculinity?

  1. As a man I would have to say that crying is a good thing in general. My wife doesn’t cry as much as I do. At movies I tend to become teary easily – who knows why, I just get really into it. Crying is in no way threatening to me and my wife likes that I feel okay to express myself.

    Frustratingly enough I tend to cry when I get REALLY angry. It doesn’t happen often but it pisses me off when it does. Just when I need to be strong and forceful I cry… wtf??

    I will get teary at certain moments in movies but generally I’m not a big crier. My husband is not either a crier. He tears up at movies sometimes too but it takes something pretty bad (a death of someone close etc) to make him cry.

    It breaks my heart to see my husband cry. Usually from overwhelming frustration. It is especially difficult when I cannot hug and hold him to comfort.

    I cry for joy and love and beautiful things, as well as for when I am upset. I usdually only get to the crying angry point when I am really hurt and upset and frustrated, which, I think, takes alot. I find that I tear up when I truly empathize with someone/something and I cannot accurately convey it in words.

    I cry when I hear, see, read about bad things that happen to children. But I always try to hide it because I am a guy. A few months ago, I was at a funeral (a very rare event for me) of a 40 year old woman with 4 young children. I was fine until her husband got up to speak (his hesped), and when he spoke about his children, I cried and couldn’t hide it from the crowd of 1000 people in the room. Then I briefly looked around and realized that I wasn’t the only one.

    I cry when I’m really mad and frustrated. Or really really hurt. Or when I read a sappy story… Or a story about hashgacha protis.
