Re: I have so many questions

Let us know how it went. By the way, we would love to know a bit more about you, if you feel comfortable, please introduce yourself in the introduce yourself section, there is a template in a pinned topic.

Have you cried in front of your wife? In case you have, how does she react towards you crying?

Re: I have so many questions

Hi everyone. It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I hope you are doing ok. I come back to learn more about crying and all the different experiences you have had with others crying. I wanted to find out about a few things. First off, have you ever been held by the person who is crying? I know normally the person doing the crying is the one, beeing, held but has that ever been turned around so that the person who is crying is holding the other person? What are the different kinds of sobbing have you observed?  What are some of the differences that stuck with you? Do you have a most or least preferred kind of sob?

Re: I have so many questions

Great questions! Facial expressions can vary. Some people hold no expression, others make a lot of expressions that I'd describe as looking "wrinkly."

As for being held, it depends on the person and what they like and need. Some people need to be held, others need to be left alone etc. I'm small so generally my boyfriends held onto me when they cried. Crying has a rhythm to it and so do the body movements. Think of it like a dance or an expression of music in the body.

Some people sob loudly or bounce a lot. Others sob without movement or sound. My exes usually sobbed quietly and without movement but I suspect that's a male thing to kind of suppress as much as possible. I think it's cute that way. One ex sobbed but I could only feel it in his stomach and nowhere else. Another one sobbed but shook a bit.

Generally crying has closed eyes, creased eyebrows and a frown but that's probably obvious. My ex cried without expressions but would hold onto me and cry into my shoulder. Hopefully that helps

Re: I have so many questions

Next time someone has the opportunity to observe either themselves or someone else, especially up close, would it be possible to record? Both audio and video or just audio if necessary? I only request this because I don’t have much experience with people going through tears and I’d like to experience so much more.

Re: I have so many questions

Did you get a chance to take care of your wife as she cried lately, in the way I suggested (wipe and kiss her tears, hold her, nuzzle your cheek)?

Has she done so to you?

I think that experience could set the base for your research.

Re: I have so many questions

Hi, no neither of those things have happened. She hasn’t cried in a while. And she has never touched my face or anything

Re: I have so many questions

Do you have any female friends that share personal things and possibly end up crying in front of you? Maybe you could try joining a community or club so you are more exposed to people, therefore your chances of being with someone crying are more (plus the usual benefits).

Re: I have so many questions

Aha! My years of dissecting what goes into a cry-face have come to hopefully good use if she lets you touch her crying face.

The tear ducts that keep our eyeballs moisturized go into overdrive, causing an excess of watery liquid to collect and flow out of the eyes down the face. If the crier wipes their face, their cheeks may be wet with tears mostly just smeared around.
Her shoulders shake because she can't control her breathing. Strong sobs contract the lungs/diaphragm involuntarily which often result in shaking of the body and shoulders, contractions of the belly, and assorted gasping noises.
A crying face will often have like, the brows slightly raised and scrunched together and the inner brows may curve slightly upward toward the hairline. Eyes will often be at least half-closed with the eyes wrinkling together similarly to a squint, if not squeezed shut entirely. There's generally wrinkling/scrunching of the forehead. The mouth may be open and curved upwards or downwards and may feel very much like a laughing face were it not for the other cues.
If she's not making much noise but she's shaking a lot, she's suppressing the sound of her sobs which may make them that much stronger.

I hope this is helpful and informative and what you were looking for.
