No, no tears have ever stained my cheeks ;p

I've teared up. For example...

I once sent this guy a box in the mail with chocolate kisses, a card, and cut out hearts saying I love you. I told him to open it on cam so I could see his reaction. I was so happy with how much he seemed to enjoy the gift it made me teary eyed. I'm like super corny.

Yes, on my college graduation day. There were times during those 4 years where I was miserable, overwhelmed, and really didn't think I could keep going. So finally being done and getting recognition for it made me tear up a bit.

Never. To think of I wasn't that happy anytime anyway, I'm indeed not really feeling/sensing type of person, I'm a monster without feelings...

Even shy people can be sassy sometimes...
I'll put drunk raccoon in my signature as well, because I CAN...

I'm not sure happiness exactly, but probably other intense emotions that aren't sadness I've teared up before yeah. I can get very intense emotions while listening to music or watching certain things (though less often these days,) and sometimes that can result in tears but not full on crying.

Oh but my eyes water whenever I laugh (and in response to various other things,) but that's kind of different but I can't explain in words but it's not the same as crying and there are no intense emotions unlike with crying.

Lucy's bitten
Neck is bleeding bad
The teeth have long departed
Yet the desire burns strong
On in desire for destruction
One on which she'll depend
One that ceases to deepen
Too near bitter end

Black through the mountains
She turns her loosening ring
Guardian angel sings
"I think you've lost your wings, but you're still yours
You're still yours, you're still yours"

Only once, and that was when my crush said he had feelings for me first. Full blown crying because I couldn't believe it.

Yeah once. I had a crying spell a couple years ago that was so cathartic that I wish I could do so again. I don't know what happened to me that day but everything was making me cry and by cry I mean bawl my eyes out so I was crying over happy moments in TV shows I was watching that day.

Happy as the sole reason for me crying? Probably not. More likely a mixture of all sorts of emotions at once. Like happy/relieved/hopeful/love/good will.

I haven't shed tears of sadness in years and I am quite miserable. Not even during my last suicide attempt about 2 years ago. I don't think I have ever been overwhelmed with positive emotions to the point of crying. That concept feels very foreign to me.

I don't know for sure if my inability to cry is conditioned stoicism after years of being ****ed by this world or just deep depression.

To be fair I am able to cry as a result of physiological reactions (choking, vomiting, exposure to fumes and smoke, cutting onions, etc)...

I've laughed so hard that tears came, but I don't think I can remember crying for shear happiness. I may have come close when watching my kids do something when they were young. There's many moments like that.

Otherwise, I haven't cried from sorrow for 13 years now. I cried when I saw my mom laying dead in the emergency room. I hugged her goodbye and went into the bathroom and cried for 5 minutes and that was it.

It's kinda rare I generally don't but when it comes to more sentimental things yeah.

Closest thing was probably when I smoked weed for the first time in a few years and actually went outside to look at the stars. It was so incredibly beautiful and thinking about the unending vastness of the solar system made me cry a little.

It kind of makes you contemplate something bigger than this planet and our concept of reality. God maybe, but for sure something we can't quite fathom from down here. That gives me a little hope in eternity for some reason.

I pretty much only cry when people are incredibly nice to each other, like when they've been fighting and make up. That makes me so happy I cry. But that only happens in movies. I've done a lot of that, though. Much more infrequently, I cry if a movie is particularly sad.

I've never been so happy about anything in my own life that I've cried, though I think it could happen if anything really nice happened to me. I don't cry out of frustration or sadness over anything in my own life, generally speaking, though I've done it a few times (when my cat died, when my ex left me). Generally, when life is at its worst, I just get angry and cold and think about terrible things.

The only thing better than money is more money.

Exclusively happiness, I don't think so, I've teared up because of other emotions besides sadness.

And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Maybe like 10 years ago during intense sports moments. I used to get very emotionally invested.
