Just wondering how often you girls cry.

I have a girl who's very close to me, and she cries quite often, and I'm just wondering if this is normal, or due to an underlying condition/cause.

So, normal girls, how often do you cry, what do you cry about most often, and what kind of things usually set you off?

Not that often anymore, unless something is bothering me e.g if I'm arguing with someone, or something "uncomfortable" is going on.
Maybe every month or two now though.

Not too often, every couple of weeks maybe... but if it's any comfort, nearly every time I cry I'm with my boyfriend, because I feel most comfortable with him... so don't get too concerned if this is a girl you like/you're with

I cry A LOT.
I wouldn't be suprised if I'm the person you know :p:
Generally it's stress. I have major anxiety problems right now, and have done since about february, and I reckon I've burst into tears at least a couple of times a week since then.
It's okay though, because it's a form of emotional release. I reckon I'd get really deeply depressed if I didn't cry.

Hmmmmm i'd disagree with the above :P

i hardly ever cry!!!!

I used to when i was 13/14 but that was just brutal teenage growing pains.

now its hardly ever, unless im tired and then it only takes a sad song or film.

i dont really cry over people, but i spose thats coz my lifes good lol

i dont think its that hard work emotionally being a girl!!!

It depends on the mood I'm in. Sometimes I just want to cry and I'll have to eventually, about anything. For me if I want to cry then I imagine stuff (against my will!) that makes me cry! :o:

Counselling? Seriously though, I do that and I just basically have a 40 crying fest every 2 weeks to the counsellor, she sits there and talks back a bit, and then I don't seem to get *as* upset the rest of the time.

However, it gets worse again towards the end of the 2 weeks. This weekend was bad 3 times on Friday, 6 times on Saturday and 4 on Sunday (and twice today) all because I keep thinking about the same thing. Bring on Wednesday morning!

I cry quite a lot, not normally in front of other people.

I used to cry in front of my last boyfriend though because I felt comfortable with him. Not because it was his fault (although sometimes it was!), or because there was any underlying condititon it was simply the fact that I didn't feel embarrassed or the need to hide it when I was with him. Also I guess he was good at making me feel better so I suppose it was better than crying on my own.

girls cry a lot, at the obvious stuff. my friends always cry when someone's said something bad to/about them or if something sad happens, but i tend to cry when i get stuck in maths or i get lost... don't think i can really give any personal input because i cry way more than anyone else i know but not usually around people or about obvious stuff. everyone cries at different stuff, some people do more easily or it's just their way of reacting to something.

I find when im really tired im prone to crying, which is very annoying. If I cry alot it can trigger headaches, which i find really wierd. Does anyone else get that?

Maybe once every few days? Just stuff like arguments, problems at home, stress, worrying too much, generally being down.

I used to only cry about once a year, but for the last couple of months I've been having a pretty bad time and I've been crying a lot... nearly every day for the last two weeks. But in normal circumstances I almost never cry, and NEVER in front of people. My best friends think I'm emotionally dead because they've never seen me cry, not even at sad films.
