    I thought I would be a crier, but I was just shocked.  It was SUCH a surprise. He just randomly pulled off the highway into my favorite resort that we NEVER go to and I was just overwhelemed. I think I said “are you serious??” for about 20 minutes afterwards lol

    Well Ms. Peacock, I would suggest you get a refund for your bullshyt ‘degree’ since google completely disproved your ‘facts’. And you have the nerve to be WRONG and SNARKY.

    And I don’t care if I am flagged.

    I didn’t cry…I was seriously giddy though. My ILs cried when we told them! My Mother-In-Law cries at the drop of a hat, though 🙂

    I didn’t cry but tears were shed. I was so shocked! He completely caught me offguard which I figured to be impossible since I had a good feeling that it was going to happen.

    Why must the Trolls always lurk in the fun threads? Jeeze.

    I didn’t cry when he proposed.  I didn’t cry when we got married.  I didn’t cry when I delivered my baby (even though I thought I would cry for sure :-)).  I guess I just don’t cry in happy moments.  I, however, do cry when I watch happy/touching scenes in movies/series :-).

    I was very excited and happy, but no tears were shed. I don’t tend to express emotions through tears very often, especially not happy emotions.

    I got teary-eyed, but didn’t out right start crying.

    Bless your heart, I certainly hope that degree entitles you to be locked up in a lab somewhere and not interacting with actual people because that terrible attitude of yours is appalling.


    Just FYI, since I didnt want anyone to “spoonfeed” me I googled all up and down and around and same as previous posters found that tears are brought on by any extreme, whether it be sadness, anger, or JOY (aka, happiness which you seem to be severely lacking in)

    Have a great day sweetheart

    @Nat_can:  I am exactly like you – I didn’t cry at any of those moments either (proposal, marriage vows or delivering my kids) but a stupid sappy commercial can bring me to tears.  Dh is still shocked to this day that I don’t cry very easily.

    I cry about everything emotional, but I didn’t cry at the proposal. Maybe because I was a little… underwhelmed… with it. 

    He had plenty of really sweet, romantic opportunities to propose and I kept expecting it. He ended up putting the ring on my facewash in my drawer at his house, and I found it… naked… while he was in the other room. I was just thinking, “Seriously?!” So maybe if it had been a little more planned out, I would’ve been more emotional!

    Oh man, I’m so eating popcorn watching this back and forth. I’m a psychologist, but I’m giving that one a WIDE BERTH. Even in the papers we write trying to obtain a degree, we cite our sources. That’s the one thing I’ll say.

    Wide berth maintained. Phew!

    I did cry. I was not distressed or jealous of my own proposal. I was seriously relieved and overjoyed that the man of my life wanted to make me his wife sooner than later. It’s all on video tape, HAHA. I ugly cried and my voice raised about two octaves.

    I didn’t think I would since I knew it was coming, and we basically already felt engaged for months.

    But the moment he was on one knee looking up at me I completely choked up and couldn’t help myself. It was very overwhelming! I had to take five minutes to collect myself before going downstairs to show everyone!

    Congrats! I did tear up a bit, but for the wrong reasons. They weren’t tears of joy
