    Just what the title says...either influenced by a movie/book/whatever, for good reason (death, breakup, serious stress, etc), or "irrationally" over something silly.

    Personally, I rarely cry...I think I've cried two or three times in the past year. I've never cried over a movie or book. Even if I'm really sad, and feel choked up or like I'm going to cry, it usually doesn't happen.

    I don't cry a lot. I had a good cry a few weeks ago for the first time in a REALLY long time. Movies and stuff, it depends. Very rarely and usually animal-related (Marley & Me makes me cry like a baby EVERY single time. I always think it's going to get better). Even if something is really sad, I don't really... cry. Same goes for beautiful things, or if I receive a nice gift. A lot of people just cry happy tears, I never really do, even if I'm extremely grateful or happy.

    It doesn't take a lot. Books and movies can get me going.

    And if I get angry I will cry. I am odd :cool:

    Incredibly easy

    - Movie? Book? Always. Doesn't even have to be sad,even a happy book or movie! I cry everytime credits roll or when I finish a book.

    - Books especially, I cry all the time.

    -Commercials, oh god, let me just give you the four biggest culprits. When these come on my friends are like "OH GOD TURN IT OFF! FRAN IS GONNA CRY!" :rofl1:

    - Anytime someone yells at me, anytime I'm angry? Tears. Immediate. Which is frustrating when you are angry and trying to make a point.

    - Someone does something nice for me? Tears.

    I am just..always crying lol at least twice a week EASILY I'd say

    Too easily lol.


    Obviously when I'm upset about something "ugghhhh I'm a failure I wish this wasn't my life etc etc"

    But also when I have to talk about something emotional in front of other people. Not that I feel emotional about it, and I could talk aloud to myself about it and I'd be fine. But as soon as someone else is involved and I think it "should" be an emotional issue... bam tears.

    When I'm frustrated (many tears have been shed trying to enter math/physics problems on online things... I KNOW I'M RIGHT WHY WON'T YOU TAKE MY ANSWER. Also, computer science, my CPSC skills are bad and sometimes dr racket gives THE VAGUEST errors.)

    And when I'm angry/yelling etc. Tears lol


    Yeah I'm kind of a cry baby. The angry tears are the worst lol.

    Um. Super easily. Every emotion brings me to tears - happy, sad, angry, frustrated. Or sometimes just for no darn good reason I'll burst into tears.

    Books don't usually do it for me, I think I maybe shed a tear reading A Walk To Remember but otherwise I don't think they get me to cry. Movies or TV shows, all the time. If something sad happens, or sometimes I don't even really think it's sad but just seeing someone else cry... that'll do it for me.

    So yeah it's probably a weekly thing for me lol.

    This. It's AWFUL. I have a hard time having certain serious discussions with people because my eyes just start freakin leaking.

    I cry when I'm angry, it's very annoying. I also cry when stressed or even a little sad. I occasionally cry from a book, movie or TV show. When I'm PMSing it's really bad.

    Not that easily anymore. I used to cry at the drop of a hat. I still cry if I'm frustrated or angry, or sometimes something really sappy will move me to tears, but nowhere near as easily as I used to.

    Emotionally, pretty easily ... Physically not so much, remember I was kicked by a horse hard enough to knock the glasses off my face & send them flying into the opposite corner of the stall so no physical pain doesn't really make me cry.

    Emotionally I have more of a tendency to be depressed/sad rather then outright crying.

    - All movies. All of them. Happy movies. Sad movies. COMEDIES for crying out loud.

    - Anytime someone raises their voice at me or I perceive that I have done something wrong/stupid (I can't discuss work with teachers, for example, because I get scared and start crying).


    - Sometimes for no reason.

    I can't remember the last time I cried for a physical reason. I usually go pretty quickly into self-defense or adrenaline mode.

    Fairly easy. Lol. Super sappy movies. Movies or books about people achieving their dreams.

    Every time I see FutureACD's breeder pictures. I love her ranch.

    Watching horse movies, or videos.

    Mainly when I think about my uncertain future in Rangeland.

    Lately, all the time. I'm under a lot of pressure right now, and it's showing itself in tears. :rolleyes:

    I cried today watching the last ever episode of Weeds. That's a problem.

    I read somewhere that if you start tearing up when you don't want to, you should swallow. Somehow it interrupts crying.

    I cry basically every time I experience emotion. It's faulty programming.

    Oh god, me too. Even though I absolutely hated Ms. Nancy Botwin by the end.

    Then again I cried during the last ever episode of the Fresh Prince too. Go figure.
