The only time I cry is usually when all other emotions have run their course, and there is nothing else left to do or say. That probably happens about once or twice in 5 years. I can remember to the day the last time it happened.

    That's probably because you don't cry and let your emotions out. I think everyone needs a good cry now and then. You might feel like crap during, but you feel much better later on.

    I'm the same way as lizzie -- the pressure bomb. Happened maybe three times in the last ten years.

    Honestly, it's not that I think crying is "weak" or anything. It's just that I feel so sedated when I cry. It's like, "Goddamn it. So I'm gonna spend the next 10 minutes sitting here and crying and then I'm gonna be all tired and spend the rest of the night doing nothing? Really? *sigh*"

    Although I do cry more often than I explode, probably not more than once or twice a year, unless it's been a horrendously bad year.

    Sometimes, I just feel sad and cry. Sometimes, I just go with it for a little while. Then I compose myself.

    I can do the tear-in-the-eye thing and be fine, but if I'm going to have a proper cry, I'm useless for the rest of the night.

    I've gotta say. This is an almost entirely alien concept for me.

    If I'm going to cry about anything, somebody had better have just died.

    I could try to make you cry.

    All you're getting out of me is my name, rank, and serial number, girlie.

    If crying it out came naturally to me, I'd do it, but you can't force yourself to respond against your nature and your conditioning, to emotional stimuli. Crying is my outlet for pain, but not for anger.
