Sadness, stress, joy, anger ...whatever. I’m talking about wiping a tear or two as the minimum.

Nearly never.
Except when exposed to pepper spray, but I don't think that's what you meant.

I’ve felt the feeling but not dropped the tears over the last few months while waiting for the evil one to vacate my home.
If it doesn’t happen soon I may snap, I’d cry if I lost my gun rights due to domestic violence but damn

I remember the last time I actually broke down hard, was when my cousins 4yr old son died. I was pretty much ok until I got to her in the line after the funeral and I completely lost it. Brought up all kinds of feelings from when my brother died, was very hard on me, my boys didn’t quite get it until I explained what happened. They’d never seen me like that

Been going to too damned many funerals lately, too. My parents generation is really starting to leave us.

A funeral for someone who died unexpectedly will cause tears.  Also, my wife and I put videos together for our kids at some point... still photos with graphics and transitions, etc. and it was set to music.  Seeing pics of my kids when they were 4 or 8 or 12 might get me a little squishy.  When my daughter left for college and I went into her empty room... squishy.  It's rare but it happens.

I’m averaging once every 2 weeks in 2k19. Older I get the easier it is for raw emotion to touch me.

It happens. I think it would be senseless to go through life with out feeling something. Sometimes tho, it gets a lot to bear.

Not often. My wife makes fun of me and says I’m dead inside

When my maternal grandmother died about 20 years ago, I remember being at the visitation and all of my cousins crying and weeping as they viewed her in the casket. I really thought something was wrong with me, because I had nothing. Not a single tear. . .until the picture slideshow started playing, and it got to a picture of me standing next to grandma at my wedding. Holy moly did the tears come then. I can’t remember ever crying like that - couldn’t stop it. My wife and my mom were freaking out because I was crying so much. Mom kept apologizing for putting that picture in the slideshow

Another time was when I got news that an old friend lost his battle with cancer. That was just a few years ago. I remember my wife saying she thought that was the first time she could remember seeing me cry (she evidently forgot about grandma’s funeral).


All of that being said, I often get choked up and suffer from allergies occasionally when watching movies. Usually it’s heroic/honorable/altruistic stuff that gets to me. But that doesn’t lead to actual tears
