Wonderful obs! Too bad she covered her mouth. You think maybe there's a particular time when these therapy sessions happen

To clarify, this wasn't one of the therapy sessions, just some other person who happened to be crying in the same coffee shop (unbelievably). But that's a good question! I didn't think to notice whether the two therapy sessions I witnessed happened at the same time. I should check back through my texts, since I was definitely texting my H about them.

This happened in the same coffee shop where I saw someone crying during a public therapy session! I actually saw that same therapist and client a second time, but no one cried during the session (and trust me, I was paying attention).

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, I was having coffee and getting work done when I suddenly heard some loud gasps. Of course, public crying is usually unexpected, so I thought it was laughter for a second, but after several more gasps, I realized it was sobs. It sounded like a young woman (later confirmed: woman in her early 20s with long, straight brown hair wearing workout clothes). I couldn't see her during the crying because of a fireplace structure positioned between us.

I heard an older woman (I think it was her mother) speaking quietly to her, but mostly just letting her cry. She was sobbing consistently and quite loudly for about two minutes, taking frequent sharp breaths and letting out rapid, voiced sobs. They occasionally sounded a bit muffled, as though she were covering her mouth with her hand, but she was freely crying. The room was pretty crowded, and several people stopped talking and surreptitiously glanced over. One older woman gave a sympathetic glance and quickly tried to resume speaking normally to her companion so as not to rudely stare.

I stood up a couple of minutes after she stopped crying and went to get a napkin - I really had to walk by and see who was crying. It was immediately clear that it was this particular woman because although she had stopped, her eyes and nose were bright red and her voice was still a bit unsteady. I didn't see any tears or hear her blow her nose.

Damn, that's fantastic. He has beautiful sobs, and I love how she walks over and comforts him.

This sounds lovely. I especially like your description of her silent, shaking sobs and gasps for breath.

This is so good.

Was she looking around at all? Did she notice you or anyone else watching her? God I'd be so self conscious if I was her. I can't imagine doing therapy in a coffee shop.

She didn't notice me, especially since the line of sight between us was obscured most of the time by the therapist's head. I don't think she was looking around; from what I could see, she was mostly looking at the therapist and down at the table.

I didn't see anyone else watching, but I assume other people noticed. It was pretty quiet in the coffee shop, and while she wasn't crying loudly, I can't imagine not noticing such an unusual thing happening. Then again, most people aren't as attuned to crying as I am, so maybe other people noticed briefly but didn't find it distracting.

They've now left; they set a date for her next appointment. There was a bit more crying, mostly wiping eyes and sniffling. I find it fascinating that they had a therapy appointment that was clearly going to be emotional in such a public space.

The woman is showing zero discomfort about her public tears. I am now positive the other woman is a therapist, based on some comments she made. She's allowing silent space for the other woman to cry and express her thoughts, interjecting when appropriate with gentle advice.

I'm sitting in a coffee shop trying to get work done, and there's a woman at the next table openly crying! She's about 35 with short hair. I keep glimpsing her face when she moves, but it's mostly obscured by the other woman at the table. Her eyes and face are bright red, she keeps wiping tears right below her eyes, essentially stopping them from streaming down her face. She removed her glasses a few minutes ago when it became clear that she was going to continue to cry.

I think they might be engaged in some sort of casual therapy session, because the other woman has a notebook and is providing advice. Could just be a friend. They seem to be talking about caring for sick family members, but I can't really hear them.

Now the woman is sobbing into her hands. She's clearly trying to control her sobs. The other woman is reaching across the table and gently touching her shoulder. The crying woman is periodically blowing her nose into a tissue.

I would be very uncomfortable crying this openly in public, but I'm certainly not complaining about witnessing it!

I talk about it with my H. He's also very willing to indulge me and talk about it/use it to flirt with me. For what it's worth, I was apprehensive about telling him, as well as my previous boyfriend, and neither of them thought it was weird or disgusting or anything. In both relationships, it served to foster emotional intimacy, which naturally led to physical intimacy, so I'd say that it has actually improved my relationships.

I don't think I would ever tell anyone else, just as I don't talk about my other sexual preferences with friends. Not that there's anything wrong with discussing it with a friend; it just feels too intimate for me.
