Which do you prefer, the sight or sound of crying?

I have to admit, for me, it's the sound rather than the sight. Silent crying, especially when it's in movies or on TV and muted by music, I find much less satisfactory than the actual sound of sobbing. For example, in the latest episode of "Victoria", there's a scene near the end where her former baker, Mr. Francatelli, is mourning the death of his wife, who has just died of cholera. The scene is silent, and while I was very much in "Gee, I want to just hold him" mode, the scene was totally silent except for a voice over, and I felt cheated. As for the perfect sobbing, I'm still trying to find the one soundbite that fully satisfies my need. So far, the closest is the scene from "Desperate Romantics", where Rosetti (played by Aiden Turner) finds his wife has committed suicide. (Episode six). The urgency in the sound gets me right in the feels.

I prefer the sight of someone crying more than the sound (although the sound helps too) but I mean I'd prefer crying sounds or no sounds (not like background music or a voiceover for the sound. With that I'd rather have silent tears).

I have to agree with Princess _Lucky, I would rather have a silent cry than a non visual sob, I mean, I love the sound, but not so much without the visuals.

I share the same viewpoint with you.

It's so hard to choose! I think it's actually the sound for me. I mean, I love the visual a lot, especially the chin/mouth, but I think my favorite part is the sobs.

Both!!
With the sound I find I like especially when I hear more than one person at once.

Re: Which do you prefer, the sight or sound of crying?

For me it's the tears, especially tears filling the eyes. I'm not much interested in actually crying, let alone the sound of it, maybe because of the sheer quantity of non-emotional tears I've witnessed from both my girlfriend and my best friend, and even my high school crush in my younger days. I love to see eyes glittering with tears and tears rolling down smoothly down the cheeks all the way down. When my girlfriend cries/puts in contacts, that's exactly what happens. Her eyes become really full and then they overflow, with the tears running down her cheeks unchecked without falling off her face midway through. With my best friend, the tears stay in her eyes longer when her eyes are watering due to wind/cold, but the first few tears (when she lets them flow, which she does do pretty regularly) don't really run all the way down her cheeks but rather fall off in the middle.
