Step 1: Avoid the “baby-about-to-spit-out-its-food” look.
You know the one. Your mouth gets all scrunched up and your eyes go all goggly. Add some serious tears into the equation and you have it: the most unattractive face you could possibly make. And really, really sad people make that face a lot. Don’t do it. So while crying, relax the facial muscles. Relaaaaax. Take a yoga breath. With any luck, this will stop the crying altogether. If not, you’re totally hopeless.
Step 2: Don’t make scary noises. Please.
Nobody likes a girl (or worse, guy) who sniffles loudly, wheezes, or gasps while they blub uncontrollably. So keep it down, please. Again. Yoga breath.
Step 3: Try not to let the tears drip down your face.
If you’re a girl, you’ll have that creepy mascara-induced clown/raccoon thing goin’ on. If you’re a guy, you’ll get puffy cheeks. Just don’t do it.
Step 4: Don’t bloody cry.
At least not in public.
