I've been lurking around for a couple of weeks since I started experimenting with crying intentionally. As my name indicates, I'm still not able to completely convince myself. Anyway, this thread hits close to my heart so I thought it's a good time to say hello.
I'm naturally not very easily reduced to tears and when I am, I've gotten good at fighting it. I don't think I'd ever be comfortable making myself cry intentionally.
I'm a robot in real life, if anything I tend to get mad rather than sad. I think I cried twice in the last 20 years, my recent hobby not included. Fortunately, in private I have no shame, pushing my comfort zone is part of the fun.
My emotional repression may be part of why I'm having a difficult time at getting tears. I'm hoping that with practice, I can overcome this issue.
Thanks for the music suggestions, everyone, I'm definitely trying them all on for size.
