    The thread on here about songs making you cry made me realise something.

    Its been at least 3-4 years since i really cried. Not trying to sound macho etc. cos i used to enjoy a good cry. But it just doesnt happen to me anymore.

    Dont get me wrong, ive had plenty of situations where i wish i could have had a good cry, it always made me feel better when i was upset about something in the past. But now regardless of how bad i might feel i never seem to cry, anyone else see where im coming from here?

    do u mean crying after losing someone or crying after a movie or a book?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,688 ✭✭✭grimloch


    Not in a good while, but that's due to my good fortune these past few years more than anything else.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,420 ✭✭✭WellyJ


    Brighteyes,

    No reason in particular, any reason you can think of. Lots of different things can cause tears im sure.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,397 ✭✭✭ANarcho-Munk


    both, it doesn't really matter. I sometimes cry if I get really super pissed, but I find it impossible to cry fter watching a movie or book, I might feel very sad after watching/reading it but I just somehow don't cry....

    I can't cry at funerals or anything like that but after watching the green mile, my eyes always end up watery.

    I'm the exact same except my film is Armageddon. Poor Liv crying her eyes out at the end. So sad. Or is it me that's so sad?! :confused:

    I'm not usually one for crying but there was one day last week when for absolutely no reason whatsoever I couldn't stop, for part of the afternoon and all of the evening I was inconsolable! Weirdest day and mood ever.. and it wasn't one of those little cries that you feel better after, it was a sh!tty feeling that lasted a day and a half. Hope it doesn't happen again any time soon, freaked me out!

    i shed a tear when my grandmother died. Also when i broke up with my then girlfriend, not because of her, but i had to tell her family cos they were between me and the door, that was tough cos they really liked me.

    I think its good to release a bit of emotion now and then.. Too many lads just bottle everything up (I used to do this, but having a few female friends prodding at my thoughts has changed that for the better)

    Most things i can tackle head on though.

    i try not to but i cant help it,especially in movies i become so attached to some of the characters


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,785 ✭✭✭Farls


    Two things in life make me cry...ppl close to me dying and my girlfriend dumping me. have cried about 3 times in past 10 or so years.

    Physical pain never makes me cry, i've dislocated my knee a few times and some other sore things but its always the emotional stuff that gets me.

    Anyman can cry...it takes a real man to admit it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,437 ✭✭✭Crucifix

    same here (if not more)
    no matter how much bad **** happens to me, i just can't seem to shed a tear. even if i feel ripped apart on the inside :(
    tis ****

    I havent cried in years also..A sad film or scene would bring a tear to my eyes sometimes but nothing substantial enough to be called crying.

    tbh no unless its a great book!

    last film i remember crying to was saving private ryan, where he gets killed, i couldnt cry when news broke to me that my uncle died in the kitchen, shock i suppose but it happened 2 hrs later, and my next door neighbour who i was close to died in feb. so that made me cry.

    macho maybe not, but it relieves a bit of pressure sometimes.

    when some people cry there are those that just join in.

    I cry all the damn time, over many situations that get me down.

    I don't feel that crying will make me feel better, or cure whatever my problem is, I'm just a sensitive guy. I'm not ashamed to admit I cry and I'm not ashamed to cry infront of people. I've done it many times before, there is nothing wrong with it, unless it's used as a tool in order to gain something. It's a simple method of displaying emotion, and I'm glad I have that ability.

    They say crying is a sign of strength... If that's true, then I must be a Titanium Ogre by now.

    I cried when Liverpool won the Champions League.
    First time I've cried in years and the only time I've ever cried when I was happy.

    only time I've ever cried when I was happy

    I've yet to experience that feeling myself, although I've flooded many a house by crying from laughter. I'm sure some of you have done that, also.

    Tears are a natural thing, basic human function.

    Haven't cried in god knows how long, might have been tear or two when my lovely fluffy west highland dog was knocked down and killed... :(

    Interestingly, my girlfriend started crying today because I kept gently poking her. She cries when she gets frustrated....its quite wierd.
