    Sounds like this could spark an interesting discussion! So have you ever seen your dad cry? If so, under what circumstances, and how it made you feel!

    In case it gets too emotional :grouphugs:

    Never ever seen my Dad cry. Don't even think he would cry if a family member died. I know that he probably would cry inside.
    But in general men up North don't show there emotions.

    Only once. That was when my mum kicked him out of the house for a night.

    No. I got the impression he was close to it at his mother's funeral though.

    All the time! My dad cries in the Sound of Music, The Wizard of Oz, The Railway Children...

    ... and on a more serious note, at frequent points when my parents were in the process of splitting up, when his dad died, when I went to university...

    Basically all the time. I've barely ever seen my mum cry though.
    I wonder who wore the trousers? :p:

    I've seen both my parents cry, my mum significantly more frequently than my dad, but then I live with her so that's to be expected.

    Properly crying yes and the reasons I'm not going to into :p:

    but then he's a big girl's blouse when it comes to movies and things, and cries at anything from We Will Rock You to Titanic.

    I can't ever recall him crying - he's a pretty stoic, logical guy and he's fairly detached from his dad and remaining sister. When his eldest sister died in 2003 he didn't cry. When his mum died last year, he didn't cry.

    I don't know if he does it to put on a brave face or because he genuinely has no feelings deep enough to warrant crying [I personally think it's the former], but it's long past the point where I would care if I saw my dad crying.

    Yeah, he cried when his parents died. He cries at sad films as well. He's a emotional man and not afraid to show his true emotions.

    Yes...once, not long before he died. (R.I.P 02/01/2009)

    He was in hospital getting treatment and my mum and I went in to visit him. He woke up because he had a nightmare about all these skeletons 'coming for him' and saying things to him, and I think it brought up a lot of fear and bad memories for him but I'm not sure what.

    It was really upsetting for me to see as he was quite ill and in a hospital environment which seemed unnatural and he was quite distressed by it. :cry:

    Once when my grandad died. It was kind of unexpected since he didn't cry when his parents died but when my mum's father died he did. Unless he did it in private. I dunnah.
