    Twice. When he split up with my mum and when his brother (my uncle) passed away.

    Last time was when him and my mum split up, that was awkward, seeing your own dad crying!

    My da cried when I got my GCSE results! haha. I had been through a really rough time with illness, and I'd worked hard through it to pass every one of them, I think it was maybe just relief or something!

    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.
    I agree about the northern thing, but I saw my dad cry once - when he was told his mum was dying - and even then he went outside because no-one was supposed to see. It was the scariest and most chilling thing thing ever, seeing my dad cry.

    Yeh, It'd make it worse and make it feel more painful for the people watching. It's more profound.

    My dad cries a lot bit only really in front ofme rather than ma mum or sister. It's usually about his mums death and his uncles too. I think more men should openly cry, there's nothing soft about having emotions

    A couple of months before he died, clutching my hand, crying like a baby and asking God why won't he let him see his kids grow up. The only time.

    The only time i've really seen my dad cry was when we went to see my grandfather in the chapel of rest. He was stroking his face and crying as he said bye. It's the most upsetting thing i've ever seen in my life - I dread the day I have to say bye to my father, i'll never be able to cope.

    One time came to mind.. I was upset and explained to him why and he burst into tears. Literally probably the only time I can remember seeing him cry. Made me feel very guilty, but yeah, I can understand why he cried.

    Yes I've seen him cry.

    I've seen him cry when I was a kid and I hadn't seen him for a couple of years, and then I did, so he hugged me and cried.

    Again when I saw him when I was 17 after not having seen him since I was 11 (Apart from once when I was 14), and he hugged me and cried

    I saw him cry when I was 19 when my grandad died - whilst he was in hospital, and at the funeral etc.

    I saw him cry a LOT when he was living with me for 2 months during October - December 2008 when him and his wife temporarily separated.
