Why She Cries

Depending on the known reasons for her mood, your reaction could be vital in ending the problem – or at the very least assisting you avoid a full-on emotionally charged fight.
Hormones
Let’s just understand why one looked after. In the entire days before her period , your girlfriend might be more emotional than usual and may react to otherwise mundane things with tears. If you believe she’s overreacting, it makes sense to comfort her anyway and treat her with some sympathy rather than mock her or completely disregard her feelings, regardless of your personal undertake the nagging problem. In hindsight, she may eventually agree that she was developing a big deal out of nothing, however in as soon as there is no course of action but to play along absolutely. Make no mistake: Acknowledging that PMS may be the reason behind her feelings will lead to full-fledged anger and you’ll be in for more than you ever bargained for.
Manipulation
Women learn pretty early on in life that men can get uncomfortable when faced with a crying woman, and will often do just about anything to stem the flow of tears. Whether it was a teacher who raised a bad grade after a sob story about a dead dog, or a dad who bought his little girl whatever she wanted so she would stop causing a scene at the mall – a woman who has had this type of behavior reinforced in childhood will think nothing of trying the same tactics on a boyfriend in adulthood. Unfortunately, it could be tricky to differentiate the sincere tears from the ploy, especially early on in a relationship. When in doubt about her sincerity, removing yourself from the situation is probably the best call, and it’s the only one that guarantees you won’t make the situation worse or end up caving in.
Sincere emotion
When it’s not hormones or conniving manipulation, the reason for her tears will likely be a sincere and deeply felt emotion. Women respond emotionally to a lot of different situations, so it can be difficult to figure out exactly what’s going on with her. The only way she’ll be able to start to feel better, however, is if she feels heard and supported. Whether she’s feeling hurt by someone (maybe even you) or is feeling frustrated or helpless in a situation she has no control over (perhaps trouble finding a new job ), she may resort to tears as a release for her pent-up frustrations. In such a fragile state, your girlfriend isn’t looking for a trite Mr. Fix-It synopsis of the matter, she’s most likely just looking for someone who is willing to validate her feelings and give her the support she needs to solve things on her own.
