    Default Something I wondered...

    Does anyone have any statistics on the average number of times per year that men and women cry?

    (I personally think crying is a weakness which must be repressed, but still, it's something that entered my mind.)

    Well, it doesn't seem that unusual for women to cry. But I wonder if men really don't cry as much -- social standards make it more unacceptable for men to cry in public.

    If I remember correctly, women cry significantly more - yes, this has been researched and the difference is very dramatic. If I have time tomorrow, I'll try to get the actual difference.
