We Cry More Than Men Do. It’s Sci­ence!

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - WORK -

Blame (at least some of) your tears on bi­ol­ogy. Re­search shows that women ac­tu­ally have di‡er­ent tear ducts than men: ours tend to be a bit smaller and more shal­low, so our tears spill over onto our cheeks more eas­ily than a man’s. This means that a guy and a gal can feel the ex­act same kind of emo­tional dis­tress, but the woman is more likely to shed tears, says au­thor Anne Kreamer. Thanks a lot, sci­ence!
