Puppies! When they are SO cute this feeling just swells up inside and the only way to express it is through tears. I'm a 43 y.o. guy. It can be embarrassing.

I cry when I get really mad, It's weird. I'm not even sad at all and I'll just start crying. And then people think that I'm sad-crying and think I'm just a crybaby. It gets kind of annoying.

to me that saddest thing in the world is when someone tries so hard to make something nice for someone else but the other person doesn't appreciate it. like that one Charlie Chaplin episode when he prepared the perfect dinner for the ladies but they never showed up. I cried at the end of that. I don't know why it gets me.

Currently, the retirement of a professor of my institute. Due to my terrible writing anxiety which started when I was an undergraduate, I had many moments when I just wanted to give everything up and take the easy way out - quitting university. In such and other times he helped me a lot with his empathy and kindness and he has helped me to grow in my mind as well as a person. He embodies the tradition that my discipline began with and that since has been largely forgotten and/or marginalized, but doesn't force his opinions and preference on his students but has sincere interest in their opinions and results, no matter the topic. He is highly respected in academic circles and highly cherished among his students. He is one of the rare species of professor who would go out for a coffee with his students.

I often joke that I can't imagine to do a PHD but (had things be different) that I would have liked him as my dissertation advisor.

I once cried because I had been craving white chocolate buttons ALL day and I went to Tesco, paid for my stuff through self-checkout, got to the car and drove off, shortly realising I had left my white chocolate buttons at the self checkout. I cried. I guess I cry over missing out on white chocolate!

Also character deaths. I'm pretty sure I cried during every single movie I've seen and book I've read in which a character dies. I cried for like two hours when Augustus Waters died. Ugh, that book left a hole in my heart.

But for some strange reason I cried when Harry Potter was sacrificing himself to get rid of Voldemort. Like why?? I knew he was gonna be ok.

I do a super weirdo thing where I smile like a madman (you know, full blown teeth and lips as wide as they can get ). And when I smile, whoever sees me do that has to smile too(weird, i know). Its something which makes people's mood better (only my family) and mine too. But I feel extremely sad when somebody doesn't smile back at me. I remember crying a couple-more like a dozen- times when somebody just doesn't return that smile, cause that would mean that my family member is too sad to smile, ergo crying like a baby.

I never cry. I mean, it makes me human, but when I'm in pain or something sad is happening I just quietly stand there. My eyes not even glistening with the ghosts of my past.
The only times I ever cry are when A: My math homework is inhumanly possible B: Sirius Black/Fred/Cedric Diggory is dying (sorry everyone else)

I really have a hard time crying, and when I do it usually takes a lot to get me to that point. I think the last two things that got me good enough to make me cry were two books. Dewey - About the library cat in Iowa, and Grace - about the Great Dane with dietary issues that led to her owner and his friend creating 3 Dog Bakery. Those animals lived full lives and inspired people, the mark they left on their owners and others lives made me start crying. I never did pick up Marley and Me but I watched that movie and it brought me to tears too.

My husband teased me about this one. I cried when I read Cujo, and just thinking about the book makes me sad. All I could think is that the poor sweet dog gets bit and then is all confused, then turns mean from the disease. He doesn't understand what's going on and wasn't, on his own, a bad dog. It is a scary book, but it makes me sad.

There is a channel on YouTube ‘Paul Barton’ that is simply Piano for Elephants. Just a guy and his old piano, in the tropical forests, playing classical piano for elephants. It’s beautiful to watch them listen. I cry. Every. Single. Time. I don’t think I’ve ever cried with happiness. I’ve cried from sadness a lot. But this is a positive, worthwhile cry.

I've seen these videos on YouTube. It is really amazing to hear the elephants listening to him play. Have you ever seen the video where the elephant pulls her caretaker over to a younger (new) addition to the herd so the caretaker will sing a lullaby? That one made me tear up too.

I cry at movie trailers when I'm in the theater. Doesn't have to be a sad movie, either. I think I just get overwhelmed. There was that one time that I was PMS-ing real bad and I cried during Baby Got Back when it was on the radio. The part where he says, "Kick those nasty thoughts." I also cry when I remember that David Bowie isn't here anymore. Huge fan.

I cry when I see a balloon that has been lost. Somewhere nearby is a child who is very sad over losing something that brought them joy. The worst part is that they can see it as it goes. It is still perfectly intact, still good, still capable of bringing joy, but it is gone forever and you have to endure the tragedy of watching it slip away. It's a metaphor for so many different kinds of loss. I am actually crying while writing about it.
