I am pretty sure you can, since crying happens in specific glands in your body, and then is released outside by opening of the tear ducts. I think they will open. That being said, I am not 100 percent sure. If I get sad in the next couple days, I think I will try ;-)

Of course, that is with a mask. lol Seriously, I don't think I have ever started crying while I was underwater. I went underwater after I started crying, but never started in the water. I don't even know honestly if it's possible...

There are two reasons why i havent cried under water 1 I dont know swimming and got water phobia so there is no question of going under water 2 If i ever want to cry i cannot cry in front of other people or anywherte outside my home, so this is the reason i have never tried crying under water :)

of course you can cry underwater. Crying is when our eyes expel water either from sadness happiness or when our eyes are irritated. You just do not see the water expelled because the tears are already in water.

hmm I don't know. I have never tried it. I'm pretty sure I can, but I don't think I would notice it if I did. I would already be covered with water. It's kind of like crying in the rain. No one would notice.

I think no one cry under water. That is because in the water our eyes are washed by water so our eyes can't be stimulated to producing tears. Unless you wear swimming goggles, then you can cry under water. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.
