    Again, I'm still new, so I don't know if this has already done the rounds.

    IMHO, both laughing (hard) and crying are really healthy activities.

    About a week ago, I was in a friend's apartment and the TV was on. It was a morning-type of show (like a weekend Today show) and there was a hockey player and some "disadvantaged" kids and they were talking about a partnership of sorts to benefit the kids, and there was something so HUMAN(E) about it that I started weeping, but I left the room so my friend couldn't see it.

    So when was your last time?

    Yesterday and then tonight. Well - not quite crying but close to it.

    Yesterday it happened when I toured a dog adoption agency - a place I support - where animals are beautifully treated - and if too old to be adopted - they are assured a great home right there in the bucolic setting - without fear of having to be put down to make room for more animals. That visit got to me. There are so many animals in the world who need our help.

    Tonight - it was after a two hour long distance phone call with a very special R.J. guy whom I am getting to know - better / deeper. I feel so good being with this guy albeit over the phone - that when the calls end, I get a little misty - not crying really - just happily reflecting on the call.

    I've never cried a day in my life. When I was a baby, the doctor gave my mother special eyedrops to put in.

    omg.. this is going to be soo flamming but the other day I was watching Breakfast at Tiffany's and that fucking "moon river" song gets to my heart strings.. and then I was like Audrey's dead in real life and she was an awesome actress.. so that kinda did it a little more too.

    But like actually crying from the pit of my stomach would prolly be when I almost lost my dad last winter.

    It's now been five years. I have actually kept track of it. My friend and I were in an accident and he died, and I cried for a long time. For about three weeks i cried every night. But since then I have not cried. Even when I found out one of my bf's that helped me through that hard time was cheating on me, I couldn't even cry.

    Oh dear. You are a hard-faced bunch.

    Personally I cry all the time. Usually due to some tear-jerking TV programme or something on the news.

    It's a great emotional release, so it's good at times.

    It seems to happen more as I get older.

    Though I frown away from crying over a man.

    Lozx

    BTW there have been topics about this before (one of them mine) :

    well.... my parents would say I cry all the time and don't listen to me( they have been saying that since I was 5) But the last time I truly cried was when I was watching some stupid movie on logo and there was this guy who everyone around him and in his family were trying to help him go on a date with this guy, and just butting their nose in but in a cute way..... and then I started to cry when I realized that was all I wanted. I wanted to be surrounded by people who care about me like that. Who would want to meddle, to try in set me up with guys no matter how much not my type they are. I guess I just wanted that feeling of family again. Which I have felt I have lost since I came out to my parents

    Cried Wednesday after therapy. Will probably cry a little tonight. Breaking up is hard to do.

    trying to cry a little more than I have in the past. cleans out the emotional pipes.

    Crying (like laughing and having orgasms) is good for a healthy psyche. I personally feel like a crybaby sometimes because something as simple as genuine empathy or a song can move me to tears (was listening to Bach's "Air on a String" the other day and got a little teary).

    Grrr, but I'm still a Man! LOL!

    I went to see the movie, The Visitor, this last weekend and teared up a few times during it. I have no problem crying, though, and find it very healthy. I also laugh way too loudly.

    Watching the last episode of the second series of skins, when Tony and Sid were saying goodbye to each other.

    How it really should of been,

    Not how it happened with friends of mine who i no longer see or speak too

    But right now because of the tablets i am on for shingles, i have so much emotion inside i'm afraid to let go of it, it could be very messy.icon_cry.gif

    This is really dopey, but there have been some moments in that John Adams miniseries on HBO that have gotten me teary-eyed. There is some really stirring stuff in it.

    I can't remember, probably the day I realized my dad was not going to make it. That was October 11th, 2006. He died on Friday the 13th (same as his dad). Oddly enough I did not cry on the day he actually died, or when we spread his ashes in August 2007.

    I cry at the drop of a hat so it's not unusual for me. The last time was last night during my faith-sharing group when I said the closing prayer I had written earlier in the day for my priest/confessor/counselor.
    His cancer has recurred and the prognosis is not good. But he keeps on celebrating Mass and ministering to his flock despite the pain he is suffering.
    He's a true model for putting others ahead of himself.
    I couldn't finish my closing prayer because of my tears, so others in the group finished it for me.

    As a child. One was given the nick name leather ass. As one could be given the leather strap, and I would refuse to cry. This was my first nick name. I was very young about 3.

    I don't cry over movies, or human devastation's, were you have lots of loss of human life.

    But anything to do with animals, will pull at my heart sting. The last move I cried over was a movie about an American whom took on a cub, while at war, and his relationship, and bond with it.
    This bears name was Winnie.

    I am not able to go to an animal shelter, as it reminds me of how cruel humans truly are.

    Crying is something I do very rarely. When I lost my partner in a car accident I didn't cry. I was completely numb. I was able to communicate and function. You would have never known what I was dealing with. I've learned a lot about the release of emotions from then and now but I still find it hard to actually cry. I think I came close recently when I found an abandoned cat in my neighborhood. It was obvious someone had physically abused the cat. There were burn marks like someone had put cigarettes out on the cat along with what looked like an attempt to shave designs on his body. I don't understand cruelty like that. So I came close that day. Good outcome to all of that..... I scooped him up and got him to a Vets ASAP. I was told after getting the medical attention he needed he was adopted by a great family.

    I dont cry at movies or TV. But I did cry at work recently. One of my three jobs is hell. I wanted to walk out but I havent even put a notice in yet because two other cooks quit and one ( a friend of mine ) is in the hospital with what may be a brain tumor.

    I also cried about three nights ago because a guy that Ive liked for a long time now finally became single, and a girl who was supposed to be my friend jumped right on him. It wouldnt be so bad if he was 100% straight, but I had actually made some advancement in the situation. Anyways, it wasnt so much that I liked him so much that I cried, as much as it was that 99% of the guys Ive ever liked are straight and/or straight with gay tendencies yet nothing ever happened with. It was more like a "this keeps happening" thing than anything.

    Oh well.

    Last time I cried was actually Valentines Day. lol how tragic and stereotypical but it was a really really bad day for me.
