I try not to get to the stage where I would cry.
In public and around people and stuff, I would try my hardest not to cry. The reasoning is because it is embarasing. It sticks out, people stare at you, and you feel super vulnerable. I would cry in public only if given very strong reason too, and if it is that strong of a reason, chances are there would be no stopping the crying even if I wanted to 😅
If I do cry though, it is probably going to be in private, at night, lights off, crying to myself in the silence of the dark. It is a miserable experience, but I'm not going to hold back when I'm alone.
Crying is like the pressure release valve on emotions. If the pressure builds up, you gotta do something so you don't explode.
I'm kind of an emotional person at heart so I can get teary eyed depending on the situation, but I try my best to only cry in private. I don't like people I don't know seeing me like that.
Notable exceptions of being ok to cry in public include funerals (esp. of closed loved ones) and my dogs dying.
(I mean it is sad when you are told by father in a broken up voice "you can pet him for the last time" as your dog you grew up with for years is gasping for breath. Crap. Now I'm actually getting teary eyed thinking about it 😖)
I'm human. I cry too. I'm probably more emotional than I often like to admit 😅1

Nothing wrong with men crying, it's only bad to cry if your crying 24/7. That goes for women too.3
