I love them so but they make me cry…

I love them so but they make me cry…

Onions... Nothing makes my boyfriend happier than a dish that is just jam packed with onion... And I love them too (just nto quite as much as he does). There is only one problem... only seconds after I sink a knife into one (it doesn't seem to make a difference what type of onion it is) I just cannot stop crying. My eyes turn bright red and I have to blow my nose like 400 times before it finally stops the burning and watering in my eyes. I know that onions make pretty much everyone cry but I feel like I get hit particularly hard... It's bad enough that I actually enjoy having his mother over because she can chop them and it doesn't seem to effect her. So. do any of you have any suggestions or tricks for minimizing this effect... or am I doomed for life?
