Things That Make You Cry

The Top Ten

1 Somebody Died

I haven't personally lost anyone yet but my friend has lost 3 of his family members and 2 of his friends. Every time someone died he would cry for weeks.

I can't stand no onee die...

Death is the most painful thing in life

When my mother and father and other relatives died. George Michael's death. I've cried loads over losing my parents and George Michael.

2 Anime

Like what no

Bash on me all you want, but anime is trash - awesomedp900

Damn who would have known that animated characters would make a person so sad.

The preteen girls are crying.

3 You Ask Him/Her Out and She/He Says No

I remember devoting my heart to someone, for two years, and they didn't give theirs. The feeling of rejection, wasting 2 years waiting for someone, it just tears me down...but remember one thing: You don't need anyone that doesn't need you. That guy, he feels stupid because when he saw me a year later, he thought I was hot, but TOO LATE!

she did that to me exactly 24 hours ago it's july 1st 2010 2:16 yeah that's right I asked her in 2 a clock in the morniing

And then I sit in the corner and listen to the sound of silence for 40 hours straight. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

Three times in the same two weeks in my case. - IronSabbathPriest

5 Losing a Friend

My best friend Luke died once!

Losing a's hard trust me. You can't picture your life without a best friend. There super strong you admire them. You never forget every ounce of happiness they left in your heart. You will have a special place in your heart for them... but if they move or something happens to them there will be a hole in your heart that will never be filled again. Your heart aches knowing you won't see them... knowing you won't get to laugh at their jokes...knowing you can't skip over a desk in class to ask them for an answer. It's not a goodbye... this is a see you later best friend. I MISS YOU ever!

Losing a friend... one who you were best friends with for five years... The one who held your hand and hugged you through tears and assuaged your pain... And then you start to fall for each other.. You for him... Him for you... And you just slip away from each others grasp and head your separate ways without a choice... I MIS YOU ALEX!

Most of my friends betrayed me. Most of the the good ones moved away. I had a group who never moved and were nice but teachers split us into different classes because we use to misbehave in class. But after that my already awful friend making skills were damaged. And ever since it's been hard to make friends.

Misbehaving isn't a reason to split friends up. Apparently making fart noises means being split up from your friends, but popular girls doing drugs are allowed to stay together and be influenced by each other to do drugs.

I feel so lonely. I wish I had good friends;Again like I used to. - Lunala

6 Seeing the One You Love, Loving Someone Else

I dated this guy named Gerardo and I loved him but one day he broke up with me and said I used you to get his mind of of his ex girlfriend and then his girlfriend called me and said some thin g she asked me some questions and then she was like dang and u said I was fine when I really wasn't fine I was heartbroken and all I did was think about him and then he wanted me back and I was so dumb and said I want him back to and then he said he will never leave me and I believed him and I found out that he wanted to date my friend and then he broke up with me to get with my friend and then they broke up and then he got with his ex then tried to get with me again and I said no because all you want is to get with girls and now I'm dating this guy that its almost our second mouth anniversary on February 14 which is valentines day and in glad I'm not with gerado any =more find a good guy and you wont get hurt like I did and make sure the guy makes you happy and loved and make sure not to fall ...more

I had a crush on a guy name Gabriel, and I loved him. My friend and I both had a crush on him. He ended up dating her and leaving me to cry for months.

YEP! This guy that was my only true crush dated me then broke up with me for this other girl. While we were still dating he asked me if she liked him and had told me that he liked her while we were still dating. Now she's all he talks about.


7 A Bee Stings You

A kindergartener must have added this. - RockFashionista

I once got stung by those big helicopter wasps and I didn't cry. Bee stings are nothing. - AnonymousChick

Honestly I got stung a couple moths ago and cried. Of course that was my first bee sting

What? That was so random? A bee stinging you making you cray!.

8 Losing a Pet

If I ever lose my favorite dog in the world, I WOULD BREAK and I don't even cry like that

Losing a pet is the worst. It's like losing a human family member

um duh

My dad's Maltese, Duke and Akita, Queen died and I was torn up about it. I only cried twice about it. My only regret is that I never hung out with Queen. I still miss them.

9 Bad Grades

I can relate so much! (because I'm Asian! )

Yes sometimes

My parents are super strict and whenever I got a bad test grade, I imagined how disappointed and mad my parents would be and I'd start sobbing.

I hardly cry for any of these reasons. I don't even cry when a relative or friend dies. Not even when I was young. It's not my personality, to cry. - LordDovahkiin

10 Deaths

This should be number one because it combines people and pets dying, which is in two different categories above this.

When my grandmother passed my older cousin was in hysterics

It hurts when you think of someone in your past who died or the scary reality's to face even about dying yourself.

I laugh (just playing) I. Get sad and cry for a moment actually every hour I cry for everyone that died in the past - speed

My siblings are at school and I'm here at home relaxing - speed

18 You Boyfriend/Girlfriend Dumps You

My boyfriend did that then one of my friends went off on him and he apologized I may still have some feelings for him but seeing him move on or reading over our old texts really hurts

Not enough to make me cry, but I remember these 2 horrifying nightmares I had which made me wake up with a surprised expression and NEARLY screaming - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

It's like a death. It's hard to deal with and takes time.
