    I think with girls they either cry a lot, or never cry at all. I'm a girl who never cries at all. It's probably just the girls you know/surround you.

    I don't cry, too much effort and waste of my time.

    Definitely. Can't remember the last time I cried, but I was probably insanely stressed out or remembering people I've lost. Those are about the only two triggers for me, but those really sad "army Dad comes home early" videos sometimes make me teary. :no:

    We went to one of those a week ago, a guy had to be escorted from the room because he was crying like not the sniffing crying but full on wailing cry
    Oh gosh, I remember having to attend that talk last year. Rather moving, even though I didn't cry, there was a fair number who did.

    Is it true that women tend to cry more than men? I only tend to cry when something deeply upsetting has happened to me , but I've read women can cry for lots more reasons such as,
    anger?
    anxiety?
    confusion?

    Is is this true?

    also in body language terms what does bouncing the leg up and down and placing hand or finger near mouth mean?
    I know it's a massive stereotype but I would definitely say that, as a girl, I cry more than most men I know. I think women admit to crying more often, which doesn't necessarily mean they do, but biologically most women are more sensitive and cry a lot more. Again, women cry because of anger, anxiety, confusion, tiredness etc whereas I haven't heard of that so much in men. Obviously there shouldn't be a stigma with it - anyone should be able to cry if they want
    As for the body language I'd say that means anxiousness/shyness. I find myself doing it when I'm feeling nervous around someone.

    Stereotypes aside, yes. I don't remember the last time I cried, but I know it was at least once this year. In contrast to my father, brother or guy friends, who never have. At least not in my presence...

    It's socially acceptable for women to cry but it isn't for men. If women want to cry they can without the fear that they will be judged whereas men just wouldn't consider crying in most situations as it's something they're not supposed to do. I've seen a lot of my male friends cry when they drink which I guess only happens because it lows their inhibitions.

    In general I'll only cry over something fictional, like a TV program or when a character dies in a book. As for real life, I haven't cried about it in agggesss, probably not in over a couple of years (although sometimes when I'm angry tears threaten, but that's just my reaction to being angry, I don't actually cry)

    Never mind the reason, it absolutely breaks my heart whenever I see a woman/lady/girl crying!

    I know I do. I cry at the drop of a hat. It's really annoying.

    After i became a shell of a person I no longer cry.
    A shell with an abrasive exterior, yet with a warm, soft and cuddly little thing on the inside. :kissing2:

    I don't even have the faintest idea how long ago I last cried - but it was quite a while ago.

    Fair enough if you're genuinely upset but I don't and will never comprehend why people cry over films and TV shows - there were a load of women crying after watching the John Lewis Christmas advert and probably men too.

    You do know that's not exclusive to girls, right? :eyebrow:

    I'd say no! I've only cried twice since August 2010... I promised myself that I wouldn't cry anymore the day I moved out of my parents house.

    I will cry for the absolute tiniest of things and it is extremely annoying. I don't think it's that I'm more upset, I'll just cry when I'm not very upset...
    Emotional imbalance. Go see a shrink.

    Oh wait, no, don't. Crying, weak girls are hot

    I cry only when I am deeply upset and emotionally hurt beyond repair, never shed tears on small matters
    weeping makes me feel pathetic and weak.
    Physical injuries have never made me cry, too used to them.

    Yes I cry at any strong emotion. Yesterday I cried because I was happy that my sister contacted me after several years of not speaking to me. A month ago I cried out of simple frustration at something that happened. Sometimes I cry if I have a problem and I can't decide between many solutions i.e. confusion. So yeah crying doesn't just happen when I'm upset, it happens at lots of things for me.
