    Twice. One out of sadness, when my brother had just moved to Japan. He went around the back of the house so no-one would see him, it was so touching. The other time was out of happiness, when my mum really loved her christmas present and she started crying.

    that would be telling :shh: but somewhere south of Manchester and north of London...I couldn't wait to leave either so the feeling is mutual. :o:
    Oh right...er...good for you, hope you're having fun? :o:

    I went from Manchester to London, and he isn't close to his family so he always made a big effort with us, so that might be why. Or maybe I just made him feel old :dontknow:

    Yes, I think I only recall it once. When he was working nights and was all stressed and tired and such.

    When I was acting like a brat 4 years ago, didn't come home until 1am on a school night and he thought I was dead. He hugged me with tears streaming down his face, it hurt so much to see that it was my selfishness and stupidity that caused my father to break down in tears.

    Oh yeah he also cried watching the series end of Only Fool and Horses and Frasier :rolleyes:

    MY dads a wuss. It makes me quite uncomfortable.

    Maybe it's because hes a **** father and doesn't care about his own kids but cries over silly things.

    Never, my entire family are generally pretty firm possessors of the "stiff upper lip" gene :yep:

    I really would not want to, would be too distressing. Seeing my mum cry is horrific enough.

    Only once and he was so embarrassed! I'll never understand why men are so afraid to cry.

    I saw him cry when my grandma died. It was my mum's mum, but we were all pretty close. Didn't see my mum cry about it, but she was there when it happened so I guess she got it out of her system then.

    I've seen crocodile tears, so to say, when he is watching a sad film or showing respect but I have only ever seen him cry properly once. Strange.

    Once, yes. When I moved to university. I've seen mum cry quite a lot - when her grandma died and when we had to have 3 (at different times) dogs put down.

    I can only recall seeing him cry once, and that was at the end of 'Cool Runnings'.

    No joke.
