    Default *spin off of a spin off* People who don't cry at movies

    After all these people saying they cry at movies or a scene on tv, I'm beginning to feel like a bit of a freak. :/

    I can't think of a movie that has made me cry. I didn't even cry during The Notebook, I found it..well...boring! Even Red Dog couldn't pull a tear from my eyes..

    Anyone else? Or should u seek a therapist now?

    My hubby doesn't cry in movies (actually I have only seen him cry once in 10yrs and it was more like a watery eye)

    I thought the notebook was lame and boring too

    My DF doesn't cry either. I've only seen him tear up once and that was when the midwife handed DD2 to him when she was born.
    Other than that, he's a hard@ss lol

    Have any of you seen Requiem For A Dream? I'm asking because I've honestly never met anyone (including grown men) who didn't cry during at least one part of that film.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with people who don't cry during movies, or news, or anything really. Everyone responds to everything differently . See personally I love crying during movies that evoke tears from my eyes, it's a good way of releasing any emotions that I need to get out.

    I cried once. It was in Marley and Me and I was very fragile at the time and crying all day every day, so not sure if that counts as crying in a movie lol.

    Lol I wish I didn't cry. I'm emotional person so I cry during a lot of movies and tv. However I struggle to cry in real life in emotional situations. Especially if they aren't directly effecting me. Like if a friend is crying. I'll give hugs but I won't cry along like some do. Unless its a close friend. I can't bear to see my closest cry and upset

    Some movies bring tears to my eyes, but it takes a certain type of movie to make me blubber (it's only happened a few times).

    My Mum cries during most movies lol.

    Oh wow, I wish I was more like you, MissPoss!

    I'm the most sympathetic cryer I've ever known. I cry at movies. I cry at TV programs. I cry at the news. I cry reading news articles. I cry when friends or family cry. I cry when strangers cry near me. But for some reason, I don't cry when things happen to *me*. it's ridiculous!!!

    The thing is, most of the time I'm not even sad ... I just can't help crying on their behalf! It's really bad, because once I start I just can't stop, and I'm not a pretty cryer AT ALL!!
