How Often Do Women Cry?

Women cry more than men - that's a known fact. We are more emotional and we don't hide our feelings. Whether we are touched by a TV show, feeling overjoyed at a wedding, overwhelmed with work, or on a PMS rollercoaster ride, we're bound to shed a few tears here and there.

You poor thing! :( Is there anything your doctor could give you to ease the pain? If they're made worse by stress, maybe acupuncture could relieve the pain a little.

I cry everyday. every single day. not around people though.. i have crhonic migraines.. it is so painful.. i still have to work everyday.. it hurts really bad, so i go in the bathroom and pretend i'm primping, and cry for 2 or 3 minutes.. then come back to work and pretend nothing is wrong..

i feel very unlady like. I rarely cry. the last time i cried was in February. I guess i'm sensitive like a guy and hold all my emotions in.

I'm very emotional and moody, but I only cry once every 3 months or so! But when I do cry, there's no stopping me! ;)

I cry only to my bf, but 5 times a month is probab;y right...especially when it's "that time of the month" I cry but I don't get all pissy. I just feel sad.

I'm with partysugar, it just depends. But when the waterworks start, it's flood time.

I picked 1 because at most, I cry once a month. I'm kind of a guy when it comes to being emotional though so I guess this shouldn't surprise me. I dated a guy once who brought on the waterworks more than 5 times a month. I used to roll my eyes at him and tell him to man up. Hee hee.

PS--after reading the answer to the poll...I don't know of any men that cry once a month. Once a year, maybe.
