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.

Great obs! It sounds as if you were able to position yourself discreetly enough so that you could observe without being noticed. That's always ideal.

I am surprised he readily cried in front of you, even allowed you to wipe his tears, dos wiping His tears Made him sob harder? Like you, I also have trouble crying in front of somebody I haven't cried before.

When you cried in front of him, he took care of you like a pro, seems he was used to, he held you in his arms and kissed your tears, how did you feel when he did? (At least he cried in front of you sooner than you did, guess that made you feel more comfortable?).

Have a wonderful weekend, missed you on the site.

Wiping his tears didn't make him sob harder that time - he only sobbed briefly, and after that he was just facing me with tears on his cheeks. Wiping them was intensely intimate for both of us. He had no trace of embarrassment or discomfort about crying in front of me and never has since.

When he held me in my arms when I cried that first time, I felt safe and comforted. I wasn't embarrassed at all, just relieved that I was finally crying with him.

I definitely cry more now. I had a period of anxiety/depression during which I cried a lot, but now that I'm not suffering from that anymore, I still cry much more easily than I used to. My hypothesis is that I feel very comfortable crying in front of my husband and instinctively easily seek out his comfort when I'm upset, which triggers tears. But I also tear up if I'm reading something or watching a movie alone, which, while this has always happened, occurs much more readily than it used to. When I was a teenager/early 20s, I would often wish I could just sob really hard for more than 30 seconds to let out emotion, but it rarely ever happened. It's nice to be able to do that now.

The first time I properly cried in front of my husband, we had been dating for about three months. I had just been sick for about three weeks (horrible ear infection/bronchitis), and I was finally starting to feel better. I had a really long, stressful day at work ahead of me, but it was the last day before a week-long vacation, and I could suddenly see the light at the end of the tunnel. I was overwhelmed with exhaustion as well as impending relief, and I started sobbing in his arms in bed in the morning. He held me, kissed my cheeks, whispered that he loved me. It was very warm and loving. I was actually relieved because I often have trouble crying in front of people that I have never cried in front of, and I had been concerned because I had yet to cry in front of him, despite numerous emotional conversations and total trust. So it was reassuring, and since then I've had no trouble crying with him.

The first time I saw him cry was on the 2nd day of our relationship. We'd already been friends for two years, so we were completely comfortable with each other, but we were sharing a new level of intimacy. It was about 2 AM, and we were having an hours-long conversation about all the emotional stuff in our lives that we hadn't talked about when we were just friends. We got to a certain topic that always makes him emotional, and his voice started to tremble. I thought, OMG, HE'S ACTUALLY GOING TO CRY, and then he sobbed silently for a few seconds in my arms. We kept talking, and I wiped tears from his cheeks, and then he started sobbing a little harder. I held him, thinking that I couldn't believe this was actually happening (I had fantasized about it so many times). He looked up at me with tears streaming down his face, we stared into each other's eyes for about a minute, and he told me he loved me for the first time. It was truly one of the most amazing things that's ever happened to me.

So beautifully put I could shed a tear.

I would also add, constantly talking while crying, since that never lets you see the real crying expression.

I don't like that either. In general, I skip over talking. I'd rather just see the crying, but so many videos have a lot of talking, so I'll click through until I find some sobs. I wish more people just filmed themselves sobbing openly.
