First of all, this article is not meant to insult women because crying is not a weakness. I’d like to believe I’m a strong and independent woman, but that doesn’t mean I don’t occasionally cry at some of the dumbest things. We’re human and have feelings; sometimes too many feelings. There are times where we just can't help but shed a few tears, sometimes even when there’s no good reason to. There are some things that will make girls cry every time; whether it’s sad or happy, it doesn’t matter. Here’s a list of those things. Warning: proceed with caution.
This also includes any pictures or videos of a baby animal. These sloths could bring a girl to tears.
Their squeezable cheeks switch on the waterworks.
3. When men cry.
This is a biggie, especially when our dads cry. It makes our hearts break.
4. Videos of soldiers coming home.
Gets me every time. Even if I've seen this video five times.
5. Videos of dogs greeting returning soldiers.
This is 10 times worse, which means 10 times more tears.
I once spent two hours watching random people's weddings on YouTube. This is arguably the best one.
Weddings are beautiful, but long marriages give us hope.
Sleepovers when we were 12 and get-togethers at 20 haven't changed much because story time always goes like this: "Remember that time when..."
Or even long-overdue hellos.
10. Sappy endings.
Girls love their romance novels and chick flicks. We rate the book or movie based on how hard we cried at the ending. No tears? Zero out of 10.
11. When anything is over.
Not only relationships and friendships that hurt to let go, but this could be the smallest of things, like finishing a Netflix series. Don't risk bringing up the last episode of "Gossip Girl" or "One Tree Hill."
12. Too much of any emotion.
We'll cry from frustration or from laughing too hard. We like to keep everyone on their toes.
13. Too drunk.
Too much alcohol makes us cry too. Try to keep us on the dance floor to avoid this one.
Or is this just me? #sorrynotsorry.
15. Anything during our time of the month.
This just about covers everything else.
