    school for the first time, I couldn't take my eyes off her, and I know I probably wasn't the only one gazing at her beauty. Through my mind I was thinking "you know what, I'm gonna try to talk to her, I need to man up, I need to know how to talk to a girl and here's my first...

    I have never been one to cry often. I have been told that I show little emotion, and it was true. Not only because I was good at hiding emotion, but also because I've never felt overflowing with emotions like I do now. Lately... lately I just cry and I cry and I cry. Over what...

    I cannot quit crying. Am I Mental?

    I am not even sure what the problem is.  Someone talks to me about their sick husband, and I tear up.  Someone talks about their struggling marriage and I tear up.  I hear a really nice song and I tear up.  I am so sick of crying over stuff that does not...

    I Don't Cry Much. ...

    I don't cry much.  When I do, there is something seriously wrong.  It still takes me awhile to cry when someone dies.  Even when something bad happens, I find myself finding something to be angry about rather than letting myself feel the sadness enough to cry.
