    For the longest time, i've been wanting to cry.

    Yet I can't.

    Seriously.

    I'm a guy, wanting to undertake a good cry...yet haven't...for years now.

    Unless you count the time I saw Pixar's "Up" film. lol, but seriously.

    Perhaps the cry will come when the time is right.....

    ..but here I am, thinking that like a good rainy shower, a cry will usher in a new sunny era.

    Do I have a true reason to cry? Perhaps...but who knows. All I know is Ive been wanting to. All my friends know. Co-workers as well.

    This may sound a bit dainty-ish, but the truth is...I haven't cried in years. Years. and feel its time.

    Help? (seriously)

    lol.

    How about tears of happiness? Is there times where you laugh so much you actually teared up?

    You could be grateful that nothing`s occurred that actually made you cry?
    There`s enough sadness in the world without seeking it out.

    I know how the OP feels... I've not cried for about three and a half years now. I don't really understand it, I've welled up at emotional films or stories etc but even though I don't hold it in or anything, I just never cry... It's very strange.

    I wouldn't worry about it, some people just don't (or don't need to) cry
    I think I've cried twice in the last ten years
    There was a interesting documentary about crying last week on BBC4

    you HAVE cried so then you are fine. you just need to get that feeling to go over the edge and then it happends :). happy cries are one of the best feelings possible i think. they are so great, hopefully you get one of those next.

    I have cried, but only for a reason I wouldn't wish on anybody. Be careful what you wish for.

    Have someone kick you in the groin. You'll be crying then.

    Before. It takes a while to recover enough to beat them senseless.

    Towards the end of the book Wolf Totem there's a scene that made me cry. It's the only time I ever cried when reading a book / watching a film. As a matter of fact, it's the only time I cried since being a child :eek:

    Interesting thread. I haven't cried in years, I can't remember the last time I expressed any type of emotion that would evoke tears, I sometimes wonder if im able to cry, if im able to acknowledge sad feelings that would make me cry.

    There are so many variables involved with emotional tears, that it is hard to uncover them all in a thread.

    I cried as a child, then nothing, until my marriage break-up.

    Not even for my Mother and Father's funeral?? :confused:

    But if I lost a child, well, that would be another World again. Right?

    Some movies do that to me--and that's plenty for me. :)

    OK, I did come close when Boo said "Kitty", but that was it.

    HappyDude ... just because you have not cried is OK.

    as others have posted ... as you get older, the reasons to cry are for the worse.

    That one always does it for me too. Touching, great film, moment. Especially since Boo looks a lot like my sister when she was little, pig tails and all.

    That's exactly what happens with me. I honestly thought I was the only one! Guess not after reading this thread.

    I'm the same way, I usually never cry, but "Up" really had me crying.

    The other thing that did it was that wine I had a few months ago that made me really bawl for about 15 minutes. That was actually kind of a release. I don't usually get that effect from alcohol, like I've heard some people do, but that one time, it really had me crying. So... I guess alcohol can work too sometimes :/
