Okay, I'm probably going to sound like a whiny little git here, but that's sort of what I want.
Anyway, point is, I haven't cried in about 4 years.
My mum died 4 years ago, and since she died, the most I've ever been able to manage is some watery eyes and a little bit of welling up.
I've also been incredibly stressed over the last year, so much to the point that it's resulted in a mild stress related hair loss.
But the main point I want to ask here is, does anyone know how this affects my ability to cry?

I'm probably rambling on now, but I used to enjoy crying because it helped keep me calm and release any emotions that I had. But I'm thinking that some of my stress might be related to it in a way.

Come to think of it, I don't think there is really a black and white answer here, but can anyone give any hints as to why this might be?

Thanks

Have you tried:
A kick in the balls.
Watching sad films such as : "The Green Mile"
"Schindler's list"
"Kindergarten Cop" >.>

having a wife and children?
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.

I used to be like that until I went through a bout of depression. Now, I cry over everything sad. Like the movie where Kieffer Sutherland was killed by that bull, or watching that video of Vladimir Konstantinov after his accident. -.-

I used to be this way.

Then I got a girlfriend.
Then we broke up
Then we got back together
Now we're close to a break up

Having a girlfriend will make you cry. Trust me. I'm a man.

Fap? You could try making god cry?
#11
It could be that you are still depressed from 4 years ago. Sometimes a traumatic event can trigger a sort of 'emotional numbness' which, while not stopping you from feeling the emotion itself, can stop you from expressing it in a healthy way. It's probably something you should see a medical proffesional about

edit: also try some sad music to try and set you off

All you guys are mentioning movies that are not the least bit sad. TS, If you wanna cry watch the TV series "Six-Feet-Under" I swear to god you will be bawling at the season finally. I can't really cry either, but after seeing that I cried pretty dam good.
#18
probably because the saddest thing that has happened to you is when your mom passed away. I'm sure if my mom died, I would be in hysterics, and every other sad thing would pale in comparison.
#19
I cry about the stupidest things. Pretty much everything makes me cry.

Except for deaths...my best friend and my uncle both died this year and I didn't cry about that.

When you are close to crying, listen to these songs by Manchester Orchestra:

"I Can Feel Your Pain"
"Sleeper 1972"

Hey i also teared up in Click. It was a good movie!

But hey man, i think you should just try to be more open to EVERYTHING. i find most times when i shed man-tears is when i really revel in the beauty of something. Like an incredible sunset or when my favorite part of whatever given song hits just as soon as i drive up over a hill and the sun comes into view. Look really hard at your life and find what's most important to you, and pursue it!

TS's post reminded me of some mandatory school reading from elementary school (perhaps middle school) about some little orphan kid who couldn't cry because he had cried so much before that his eye faucets went dry. I can't think of the name and now it will bother me forever.


Edit: He totally cries later in the book though.
