Crying Discussion » Reddit thread-- man crying in front of female roommate » May 19, 2017 12:38 am

Thread  about a guy crying in front of his female roommate, and she commented later that it was the first time she'd seen a man cry, and now he's wondering how to feel about that. I sort of like this dynamic; I enjoy it anytime two people talk about one of them crying after the fact. 

Something similar happened to me with my boyfriend, about a year into our relationship. I had to make a decision about a job and it was very stressful for me. I started crying and he held me and comforted me. When I was finished, he said, "Want to know something weird?" And because, of course, I always want to know weird things, he told me that that was his first time seeing someone cry one-on-one. I was pretty shocked because he comforted me like a freakin pro, but he had had a loooong period of being single and with somewhat superficial friendships before meeting me.

She has always kissed my cheeks far more than anyone else ever has.

Funny, that's pretty much how I incorporate the fetish/get myself off during sex-- just kissing my boyfriend's cheeks and around his eyes, remembering the times I've seen tears on them. He was pretty neutral about it at first but has come to really like it, though he doesn't know the exact mechanism behind it.

She later told me she loved the fact that, out of everyone we met that day, she was the only one who knew how emotional and close to tears I was all day. 

Your wife has it baaaad! Enjoy it!

La Llorona, what is it about oldtimey war stories??? It's not like I have family in the military or anything, zero personal connection to war, super-lefty politically... can't explain it. 

As I get older I find myself a lot more susceptible to heartwarming stuff (and it's not even that I'm old, I'm 26), but I listen to this podcast that's just people telling stories about their lives and I tear up at that not uncommonly, and I teared up at the finale of the Great British Baking Show because the winner "has her whole family there with her!" and every time it just startles me because I'm not used to reacting that way.

Great post, tearhunter! I know that if I ever feel like crying and prevent it somehow, the debt isn't forgiven until I actually do get that cry I needed, even if it's days later and I'm not upset about the original thing anymore.

I tear up every so often, sometimes listening to a podcast or watching a movie. I was actually talking about this with some friends last week, and I shared the stupidest thing that's ever made me emotional: In 1966 a US aircraft carrier encountered an Italian training ship, and the US ship said to the Italian one (either in semaphore or over radio, not exactly sure), "You are the most beautiful ship in the world." I was tearing up and laughing as I told them about it because it's just such a bizarre thing to be moved by. 

Similarly, I was reading a book about WWI, and read that an English destroyer came out to New York harbor in July (?) 1918 to meet the first US destroyers joining the war effort, and signaled to them, "It is good to have you with us." And that made me tear up too. So apparently I'm just always emotional about warships talking to one another.

Met my husband through the fandoms and we named several dogs and one child star wars themed names

Wow, you have me beat by a mile! The pairing is Kylo Ren/General Hux. Started out as a crack thing but damn those authors and artists gave me feelings over it lol.

Well, I know them through the fandom of a m/m pairing (mildly embarrassing, but if anyone is interested I don't mind sharing what it is), so the crying is mostly restricted to those two characters. I'm also not so into space operas, or scifi/fantasy in general! This is a total outlier for me. 

reptongeek, that's funny, it would never occur to me to be annoyed about incorrect titling, though I understand it! I have yet to marathon all of them in one day, although if I'm going to, I should do it soon before more movies come out, shouldn't I?

Star Wars is my other obsession! I enjoyed the movies as a kid but really only got SUPER into it after The Force Awakens came out, then I went back and rewatched everything and got deeply into the details of the universe. I run a blog on it and have also written a little fanfiction (some of which features crying). Also found a couple other dacryphiles in the fandom, oddly enough, but for them it's one out of a million kinks they have, so not as much of a focus. 

Any other star wars fans here?

I would love to see you crying. Honestly.

Kleo, it's too bad you weren't here last night when I was crying.

Yeah, with a bowl of popcorn in my hand. 😁😁

I'd bring the tissues!

Sometimes when my girlfriend cries, she always specifically wants the towel I used the last time I cried so "our tears will be together" as she says. Of course, honestly, unless we're in public, or even somewhere kind of private but others are around, we don't wipe away our tears. We just let them dry or evaporate.

Wow. That's it. That's it right there. It sounds like you cry a lot, about how often does it happen? How intense is it usually/how long does it last?
