My wife and I met during university. We were initially just friends for about 6 weeks. During this time, the third day after I met her, my eyes welled up with tears because of something another friend said about their brother's illness, and she made eye contact with me so she saw the tears. About three weeks later I saw tears in her eyes after she had laughed hard.
 
After those six weeks, she went overseas for an audition/performance opportunity. We literally talked on the phone for three hours a day during this time and things became romantic between us during her second week away. I met her at the airport when she got back and got SO emotional when I saw her. I hugged her really tight and teared up immediately. She then kissed me right there in front of a hundred strangers. When we pulled away, I though I had successfully blinked back the tears, but she remembers it differently. She SWEARS that I shed a tiny tear from my right eye when she pulled away. So basically she saw a tear run down my cheek in the first 30 seconds of our relationship, and she didn't even wipe it for me https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cross.png


My wife saw me cry twice before we were dating and before we were even friends, but both times she was about 50 feet away from me and didn't interact with me. I didn't even know she had seen me until she told me many months later.

I love that she encouraged you to cry and then you did! Your relationship is sweet.

Do you think you would have cried if she hadn't asked you to?

This is for the research lovers among us. Article and reddit discussion linked. Crying may help regulate your heart rate and respiratory rate.

Interestingly, only college-age women were included in this study so I’m not sure the results can be generalized to males or older women or younger girls.

So I was watching videos today and came across this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZW2J-C-CtnA

Although she meant it as a joke, I really relate to this. If I go too long without crying, I start to feel emotionally numb, and just generally sad and listless. That's when I try to find something to push me over the edge (poignant story, book, music) or I ask my wife to coax me to tears, just so I could feel something. Before the last personal obs I posted, I had gone months without crying, and the final two weeks I just wasn't myself. After that intense obs, I felt much more serene, my sense of humor returned, and I just felt so much lighter! Since then, it has again been two tear-free months and I can feel the uneasiness returning. My body isn't used to this sudden decrease in crying.

After an unexpectedly long tear drought, do any of you (or your partners) ever just take a few minutes out of your day specifically to cry? Or do you just wait until it happens naturally? What's your favorite way to get the tears flowing?

I love talking about crying with people in real life. It's even better if they cry while discussing their crying habits. Lucky you!
