Do you hide when you cry or do you allow everyone to see you cry?

This post made me realize I haven't cried in YEARS. I'm not even joking, it's not even a "I'm a man" thing. Things almost bring me to tears but I never actually cry.


You might find it more rewarding to be more emotionally invested.
But I think the act of crying is a defence mechanism or a primitive form of asking for help from other (sympathetic) people.

It depends on the circumstances, where I am, and who I'm with. Did I just watch a sad movie with my family? Yep, I'll shed a tear. Am I having a bad day at work and someone got on my case at the wrong time? I'll try and hold it in until I'm in a private place or the feeling goes away completely. But if there's something really truly sad that's happened such as a death or terrible news, it doesn't matter where I am or who I'm with. That's just one of those times where I'm ok with it.

It's hard for me to cry at this point in my life, but when I do shed a tear it's typically where no one can hear or see me.

Nobody wants people to see them cry if truly emotional. It's a messy scene and why would I want someone staring at me.

I cry quite often and I allow everyone to see.

Haven't cried in a long time, but I usually don't let anyone see me cry. I just keep to myself.

I get to a place where I can be left alone. Often drink from my whiskey flask--but only enough to take the edge off. I can't stand people seeing it.

If I cannot escape the situation I'll dig my nails into the palm in my hand in an attempt to keep it in, avoid eye contact, and laugh.

I only allow my parents to see me cry

I don't like showing emotion in front of people, so I usually wait till I'm alone or find some area with a good view of the sky.

I haven't genuinely cried in a year or so, give or take a few months. If I do, it's by myself in a secluded area.

I don't hide it. I'm much more likely to cry when I'm alone though.

I usually hide.
