[i]I am such a shallow person and I cry easily...don't you think I should audition and be a soap opera drama queen?just kidding. Well even if I am just watching a film and when I get emotional I couldn't help my tears to fall down my cheeks.When I read paperbacks and if it's lovestory I feel the character.If a friend talks to me and has a problem and when that person started crying I cry with her too. I don't know if it's good but I cry easily.How about you mylotters? [/i]

same here! I am so emotional. if someone is mad at me and can't forgive me, it will be easy for me to cry. I don't know, and sometimes, if I can't accomplish some things, I will just cry and cry, til I become OK.

i don't really think it is a bad thing to cry easily, and i definitely wouldn't say that it makes you a shallow person! i cry easily, too. not necessarily at the drop of a hat or anything, but i am a very emotional person. i will tear up at sappy commercials, movies, books, etc. i think it is a good thing to be an emotional person (as long as it is not too extreme)- it shows that you are caring and have a heart and a soft spot for things.

Yeah I guess I just have soft spot for things and probably bec. I have gone through a lot in life that's why I am so emotional person.I basically know how that person feels and couldn't myself but cry too.

I don't know why people laugh at those people who are somewhat emotional like us.it just goes to show that we are such a caring person and we have a soft spot in our heart and I don't think that it is funny though.

I don't see you as a shallow person. Seems to me you're a sensitive person. I. too, tend to cry with movies. It was a romantic comedy & when things worked out right in the end, I boohooed like a baby!!!!!!

Maybe it's in our name. Somebody does something nice for me & I cry. I'm always saying that I have a happy cry & a sad cry. Happy movies make me cry & sad movies makes me cry.

Yeah I cry easily because that my way to feel better if I got problem or something..Crying is not that bad,It helps not to compact all the feelings your encountering..In the movies,I easily cry too maybe because I really listen and feel the emotions of the character on how good the movie is..Well I am emotional and I will not deny it..They said that most musicians are like that so I was thinking I guess..Lol..:-0 GOd bless and have a nice day..;-0

Hmm so you are a musician?yeah I guess musicians are emotional and it's a relief if you burst into tears over a sad movie.,that means the writer is good.

Yup, though i'm a guy.. But i'm very emotional and i can cry easily.. Though i can be hard hearted at times, but still i have a very soft heart.. I can cry over movies, and dramas, as long as there's a touching scene.. But most of the time, be it i'm alone or watching with others, i will try to control my tears because i dun want them to flow that easily ^_^ hehe

I look like an insensitive person and some people thought that I was not the approachable type but they were surprised to know that I have a weak heart and shallow tears.I told them that I just project a strong personality but deep inside I have a very soft heart and a caring person.

Yes, I really do cry easily...I'm a very sensitive person yet look insensitive. My tears start to shed whenever I watch tv dramas that really touches my heart, and also the time when I felt bad about what I've done that cause misunderstanding with my friends. And also if someone confronting me in things I've done wrong like in work. I still recall the time when I worked as a crew in a fastfood, it was my first job, ofcourse I didn't have any experience yet I just do what I already learned from my trainor, and then suddenly I was terrified when the kitchen manager started to nag me even if it's not my fault, I really felt bad that time so I cried a lot without even saying a word. It's really my weakness crying easily without explaining my side in situation like this.

Oh it's alright to cry but if you need to express your feelings you have to say also whatever it is regardless it's your fault or not.

You are not alone,lol!:) I also considered myself a shallow person because I cry easily when I watch heartwarming scenes on tv or in a movie. This is but natural for us, people to easily cry. I even cry when at times I get too emotional and it happens that I am listening to a very lonely song. Don't worry, it is never wrong to cry/ :)

Do I cry easily, yes, my husband makes fun of me. I have cried at commercials, but in my defense I think I only did that when I was pregnant! But I cry watching movies, I cry watching tv shows like Cold Case, it seems like I'm always crying at something. And yes I cry at books too. I put myself in characters shoes and imagine that I am that person, how could I not cry if I do that, some pretty emotional stuff is on tv, movies and in books. Oh yeah, and in real life if a situation deems it, I`m one of the first to cry!

Well women are mostly likely to be an emotional one but maybe we just feel the situation and if it hit our ego...we have the tendency to cry over it.

Yes I do cry easy. Especially if I see someone so sad around me. My heart breaks for all the pain and issues that people have to go through in their lives. Also when I see dances or hear a song that is really heartfelt. The worst was crying during a commercial.

It's alright if you cry over a commercial.Esp. if that commercial has something to do with a sick child and you pity him so much and you will realize that you are still lucky after all the hardships you have.

\hi zhaosonghan.Thanks for the comment.Well crying doesn't have to be a girl thing.A man can cry and it's not gonna make you a lesser person as a man.being masculine doesn't also mean that you are prohibited to cry and that will make you look gay.I guess you are just one of those men who are strong.That's alright but if you experience it...you'll see..it will not change you even a bit.

I don't cry easily, in fact it's very hard to make me cry. As a kid I cried a lot probably but I can't remember the last time that I've cried. I definitely have never cried watching a movie, even the most touch stories don't cry. I mean it's not like I'm some evil person that has no feelings, I'm just one of those people who are tough on the outside.

Alright you are tough on the outside but are you also soft on the inside?You are one tough person.

I don't cry very easily - sometimes I wish I did because when I do have a good cry I usually feel much better. No, just because you cry easily does not mean you are shallow. I think it just means you are very empathetic - which is not a bad quality.

Sometimes we definitely need a good crying y'know to relieve stress, anger, sadness and all sorts of emotions and at times when it's not easy to pour our heart out we just need this tiny bity of a situation to trigger the "flush", just like watching soap operas, reading tragic novels. let's admit that most often than not it really feels good to just release it all. Just like laughing, sleeping and eating, crying is something I consider quite healthy and normal. I personally think crying is a good thing, so don't fret if you cry easily 'cause it just means that you are healthy and more inclined with your emotional side. ^_______^

Yup one cry is equal to a great feeling of relief.And it's actually fine to cry over a scenario in a soap opera or even listening to a love song.But it doesn't mean that if we have a shallow tears that make us a shallow person too.

This can be a good thing or a bad thing. I too cry at the drop of a hat. I have found that it is a bad thing when it tends to be work related. However on occasion I have been able to hold back the tears in a work related matter. My oldest child tells me quite often that I am too 'soft' because of this.

With my job we are not allowed to say something bad to our customers or to answer angrily with our customers.So what I'd do is that I'll log out and cry/sob for a few minutes and then take in calls again.It's hard esp. if we need to defend yourself and yet you are not allowed to do that bec. as they say...customers are always right.

Yeah me too.And I cry also if am already upset bec. I couldn't say something to that person to hurt her/him.So since I am boiling mad,I just cry and will have the feeling of relief after that.

i'm a girl, frankly, i'm easy to cry. when i feel excited, when i feel sad, when i feel somebody is pity, when i view a impressive TV series, i will cry.

I guess being emotional or a cry baby doesn't have to be a girl thing.Men do sometimes get emotional and if it really hurt their ego or feel for that event or situation you will observe that they are also teary-eyed and sometimes they just wipe their eyes and pretend that they've got dust on their eyes.lol.
