This is so beautiful! It's so amazing how, in a relationship, once crying becomes associated with closeness and romance, all of a sudden it becomes arousing. Movies are a great way to get the tears going. A similar thing happened with my wife over the past few years. She used to just comfort me, but now she clearly gets aroused when I cry and I think she gets a kick out of making me cry (with my enthusiastic consent! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png
)

I'm really happy for you. As long as your communication with him is good, I'm sure you'll be able to enjoy this new aspect of your relationship.

@DacryphiliacMan: Her tears formed a horizontal line of drops on the table. The table had a cheap hydrophobic coating on it, so the drops stayed separate and visible. The drops were slightly darkened and cloudy from the foundation that had come off her cheek. She'd been a bit heavy-handed with the makeup.

I think I cry a normal amount. There have been several weeks this year where I have had tears in my eyes at least once daily, but usually it's 1-3 times a month. I've surrounded myself with peers who also cry pretty routinely, so I don't think I'm more emotional than my peers. I just tend to make friends with emotional people. My wife is a musician, and artists are a bit more prone to crying too. 

My only concern would be if you are feeling down, depressed, or hopeless and that's why you're crying daily, then please talk to someone about it. Otherwise, if you have a sensitive temperament, embrace it!

I have a confession. I like surveys. 

Gender: Female


How often do you cry (average): 10-30 times per year depending on number of emotional events

How intense do you cry:  tears falling down cheeks most of the time. Sobbing more often recently.

Reaction to tears: Usually wipe them from cheeks or let them fall unchecked. 

How long does your average crying fit last: Usually around 5 minutes. Can easily go up to 10 minutes though.

Cry alone, someone you trust, don’t mind crying in public: Usually alone, in front of my wife, or during a conversation with one or two other people. Sometimes public crying is inevitable so I don't stress out about it when it happens.

Do you like to cry: If it's happy crying then yes!

Do you like to be comforted when crying, how: Yes, physically. Hugs and kisses.

My wife was performing a musical piece last night in front of a large audience, and due to multiple technical failures and her own loss of concentration, the whole performance needed to be stopped and she had to start over. When her piece ended, and the applause ended, she emerged through the curtain and stormed right past me to talk to the people responsible for the sound failure, and I followed close behind her. She confronted him in a quiet shaky angry voice and vented her frustration while he apologized repeatedly. I was standing behind her to her right, so I initially couldn't see her face while she was talking to him, but I could see the side profile of tears that were rolling down her right cheek unchecked. He then pointed at something to his left (our right), and she looked to her right and I could see two shiny tear streaks on her right cheek, and two tears dripped off her jawline at that time. She then turned around to me and took my hand and we briskly walked into a practice/dressing room in the back. Once the door closed she angrily struck a table with the palms of her hands a couple of times, then her entire expression softened. She sat on the bench, tears welled up again in her eyes and her lips pulled into a bulging lip curl. She was wearing dark red lipstick. She bent her neck backward, closed her eyes and a pair of tears swiftly rolled down each cheek and she started to sob while maintaining the lip curl. She then put her forehead in both her hands with her elbows on the table, continued to sob hard, with a quivering open-mouthed lip curl and multiple tears rolling down the front of her cheeks, down her nose, and onto the table. I had her grasped tightly in my arms at this point and was caressing her hair. After two minutes she turned to me and let me hug her properly. I kissed her tearstained right cheek and then pressed my right cheek against hers, and I felt several of her tears on my face during this time. She sobbed again in this position for a

@Tornorth: I have been playing around with the lip-curling expression in front of a mirror, trying to figure out what it feels like so that I can notice when I actually do it for real. I can get my lower lip to curl and my chin will wrinkle slightly, but it doesn't really bulge like the woman in your current avatar. See how the center part of her lower lip looks fuller than the sides? When my lower lip curls, there isn't any difference in fullness between the middle and the sides. During my session I was sobbing at maximum intensity and I think my lip curled, but because of the shape of my lips I don't think I can pull off a bulge like that.

@Tornorth: Oh don't worry, I told her that her tears made me feel validated and I felt that she really understood me (which is true). I was really envious of a number of people on this forum who said they had talked to therapists who cried with them. I hope this episode wasn't just a one-time thing because now I'm really really looking forward to my next session. Unfortunately she wasn't that expressive with her lips.

I've been trying to figure out what I did to make her so emotional. It seems unlikely that she got emotional just by watching and listening to me sobbing. I bet she has lots of clients who cry, and it would be ridiculous if she cried every time.

I have a few sadder obs from earlier this year which I can post if you want, but I'd like to wait a little while before writing about them because they're still kind of hard to think about.

@Amans lacrimae: Thank you!
