Dear Poll: Do You Prefer to Cry Alone or With Company?

Nearly all of us have cried in the past month, which leads me to believe that we’re a group of women who know the importance of giving into our emotions. However, the act of crying is surely a different thing for all of us. Some of us might like to cry completely alone, only with our sad songs to comfort us, while others may need the warmth of a shoulder to cry on. So when it comes to crying, which do you prefer?

There was especially one time that if I didn't cry in the company of this sweet younger guy, my soul would've been even more devastated. I won't ever forget that warm hug and those kind words.....

I HATE CRYING. It makes me feel like crap. HOWEVER, I have broken down and involuntarily cried in front of my boyfriend and a few friends. If someone had passed away, I wouldn't mind crying in front of people, though I would prefer to be alone. Other than that, I feel it's inexcusable. Of course, I've probably cried a river in front of my boyfriend in the past 1.5 years...

i hate crying in front of people for a couple of reasons. one, i hate looking vulnerable. two, i just look ugly. i'm talking puffy red eyes, red nose, the works. yuck. but it is inevitable for me to cry in front of others because i am a HUGE crybaby.

I feel pathetic when I cry in front of another person, but I feel lonely when I cry by myself. So, depending on the situation I'll pick crying alone or with company.

Oh I want to cry alone. I just need the alone time to clear my head with whatever has upset me. I agree with lele though- if it is something major then I just dont care Ill just make a scene or whatever it takes

WHEN AT A FUNERAL FOR SOMEONE I REALLY LOVED OR WHEN MY SON WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER, I COULDN'T CARE LESS WHO SAW ME CRY. IN MOST OTHER SITUATIONS I WON'T CRY IN FRONT OF ANYONE AT ALL!!!!

I think it's strange to cry in front of people unless your watching a depressing movie or a moving performance. It's really uncomfortable for everyone if you cry in front of people.

Yeah, if it is just emotional crying, I don't like doing that in front of people. I just want my space.

I don't like crying in front of people b/c it embarrasses me for some reason. But sometimes I can't really help it.

Alone.My hubby only caught me crying once (was pregnant-hormonal) and he tried to comfort me (hugging, etc), and instead of feeling comforted, I felt awkward and weird.

I like to cry alone, it feels weird if anyone comes near me when I do. They can't fully understand what I'm going through so I like to be alone.

Yes, I have to say crying alone is much more preferred, although crying in front of someone can bring about entertaining memories later on :P The whole puffy red eyes, red nose, funny noises and coughing fits...it can really embelish a story :P

Alone. A few times I need someone to talk me through an issue as I cried; however if I had a choice I would always cry alone. I don't like to show my weakness to much.

I HATE crying in front of anyone!! It just embarrasses me so much, and I don't like them to ask questions.

I usually like my boyfriend to be there. It sounds cheesy, but he can always find a way to comfort me initially, and then say something stupid to cheer me up.

If I'm crying about my problems I like to be alone. If it's something about someone else I usually end up crying in front of them.

I cry alone now due to my situation. I would love to have someone here to catch my tears right now. Literally, a shoulder to cry on. You have no idea how comforting that is until you don't have it available to you.
