Is it more painful to see someone cry or hear them cry over the phone?

I mean a deep sorrowful crying. Also kind of consider the fact that you might possibly have unintentionally been part of the reason why she is crying... and its not about a boyfriend, its about really sad hurting things...

To hear them cry over the phone. You can only play with your words to get them to save their waterworks, but with him/her standing in front of you, you can show your sincerity with more ease because you can show an emotion, hug, eat ice-cream together and whatnot.

Over the phone for me, you can't comfort them physically (with a pat on the shoulder or a hug). It kind of makes you feel helpless and words can only go so far. :(

For me seeing the face is much more horrible than just hearing it. That's why it's hard for me to even watch someone in a movie or TV show cry, it just gets to me.

I feel that in person cuz you can physically see the tears running down their face...and me being a bawl baby doesn't help matters any...

At least in person you can wrap your arms around them and apologize as you hug them!
