- 8. Your best friend confesses that he/she has feelings for you more than just friendship. He/she is falling in love with you. What do you (or did you) do/say?
Uhhh, this is a tough one because that has never happened. I’m usually the one that confesses hah. If I had a best friend confess to me that s/he has feelings for me then I’d be cool about it. For s/he to fall in love with me though..I don’t know how to handle that. If I do have some/any kind of mutual feelings towards them, I’d probably give it a try and date him/her. I would probably need a day or two to really think about it though. I always tend to think ahead and visualize what might happen in the future. Being in a relationship with your best friend could mean everything and nothing (possibly, later on). Yeah, I think I’d tell him/her that I appreciate him/her for having the guts to admit his/her feelings to me. Depending on the relationship/closeness, I’d most likely say that I need time to think about my feelings. In a situation where there are only one sided, intense feelings, I wouldn’t make things awkward. I guess I’d pretend nothing happened…but that would hurt him/her because s/he is falling in love with me. So I guess I’d give him/her space. I just don’t want him/her to hurt his/her self.
- 11. Does love = sex?
No, love does not just equal sex, but sex is part of what keeps two people intertwined to each other. There are other ways to show affection towards your significant other. Hugs, kisses, well thought-out letters, a well cooked meal, verbally telling them, “I love you,” etc. So no, love does not just equal sex, but lovers should continue to always be attracted to each other. I think lust always has to be present for love to last because it can and will keep you two attracted to each other in many different ways.
- 12. Your boss tells your coworker that they have to let them go because of work shortage, and they are the newest employee. You have been there much longer. Your coworker has a family to support and no other means of income. Do you go to your boss and offer to leave the company? Why or Why not?
Yes, I’d offer to leave the company hoping that my boss would keep the both of us LOL. It also depends on what kind of person my boss is and/or if I’ve been wanting to move onto better things. Ultimately though, I’d offer to leave that company. I’d also let that be known to my coworker so that s/he could possibly express his/her gratitude by exceeding our boss’ expectations in the workplace.
- 14. What would be (or what was) harder for you to tell a member of the opposite/same sex, you love them or that you do not love them back?
Ahhhh. Honesty is my best policy so it would have to be harder for me to tell someone that I don’t love them back. Because if I did love him/her, it wouldn’t be a problem for me to tell him/her. When it comes to telling someone I don’t love them back, I know it hurts because I’ve sort of been in the receiving end (in terms of liking someone). Once you tell someone you love them, you expect some kind of love in return, but if you don’t get any then it feels like rejection. And rejection is such a shitty feeling. Not receiving love in return (aka rejection) is something I wouldn’t wish upon anyone, not even someone I dislike.
