There is a reason women cry more than men. Scientists say women have smaller tear ducts than men. Women’s hormones also play a part in crying. Even when men and women have emotional reactions to something, the tear ducts in men are larger therefore, the tears stay put and eventually drain away. Hormones also affect tear production. The fact men have more testosterone is another reason men don’t cry as much or as quickly as women. Men do tend to cry more as they get older.
