Do you cry during movies? Have your movie-crying habits changed over time?
In the past I would cry occasionally, but I think that ever since I’ve been dating my Boyfriend or Best Friend, I’ve been crying more often during movies. I’ll admit that I’ve been crying a lot more often now that we’re LDR because it’s hard to be away from him, but I noticed even before we went LDR that I was crying more often during movies after I started dating the Boyfriend or Best Friend.
Just wondering whether anyone feels the same way I do.

I get a little teary eyed during some movies. Titanic always gets me though. I also have a memory of being a child and holding back tears watching Free Willy LOL. I hid out in the bathroom at my grandparents house till the sad part was over!

Very, very rarely will a movie make me cry. I don’t think it’s increased or decreased over time.

I almost never cry at movies. I specifically remember homeward bound being the only movie I ever teared up during until I was probably 25ish. But lastgrew years i’ve definitely increased just being emotional in general.

Eh. Generally I dislike chick-flicks because they are overly emotional and dramatic, predictable, and cheesy to the point that I laugh. I don’t give myself the opportunity to see them to know whether I’d cry or not. I guess I am not qualified to answer.
I see comedies more than anything else because I’d rather be laughing, personally.

@SapphireSun: I think I’ve become somewhat more emotional since I’ve been dating Boyfriend or Best Friend. I’m an extremely sensitive person to begin with, so the fact that I’m emotional isn’t surprising. What changed, I think, was that Boyfriend or Best Friend accepts the sensitive side of me (…even my family tells me I should be less sensitive than I am, and they love me lost), so maybe I’m just opening up more because he doesn’t question it or tell me I should be less sensitive.

@StuporDuck: Hahaha, we were watching a foreign black comedy. My favorite movies are foreign ones and dramas in general. Boyfriend or Best Friend likes comedies (dark humor mostly) and action movies. I do like romantic comedies also, but I haven’t yet asked him to watch one with me. The closest we’ve gotten was the Time Traveler’s Wife, which is a romantic drama. I cried at the end of that one too.

I cry generally only for deaths of characters I like or incredibly sweet moments that catch me by surprise.

Yep, since I had my daughter, I cry at everything about a child hurting or being hurt!

I never used to cry during ANY movie.
As of late, I cry during almost any emotional movie. Not chick flicks; I hate those, for the most part. But during movies like Skin, which I watched recently, I began sobbing and Fiance was trying to comfort me. Only certain types of movies get to me, and it’s often the ones about segregation (of any type). It’s horrible.

I cried at the end of Harry Potter, but that was a huge part of my life for a decade. I don’t remember the last movie I cried over before that one. It’s rare.

I’ve never cried over a movie, and I doubt that will change in the future, but who knows?

I’ve always been a movie crier.
When I was very little I cried at the end of King Kong. (the Jessica Lange remake) I cried during the Adventurers (cartoon)
I was an absolute wreck (during and) after Saving Private Ryan. I remember going to the ladies room and just sitting there crying, along with every other woman there. No one talked. Just cried.
Don’t get me started on The Notebook. That wasn’t even fair.

I cry rarely at movies and that hasn’t changed.

I often cry at movies, but I think it’s decreased over time. I think I used to like crying at movies when I was younger but now, as an adult, it just happens if it happens.
