Not sure if this has already been done but since I couldn't find one I thought I could start one now. However if this has already been done I apologize and if so just ignore this thread.

The way it works is you ask a question and another PSer answers and asks a question of their own which another PSer answers and then asks their own question and so on. It's a great way to find out more about one another.

So I'll start with this question:

What is your biggest fear in life and how do you manage it?

That I get ill or something else. Only because my youngest is 8. He needs me.
I do not know how to get rid of it. I pray. I try not to do bad things or attract bad thoughts. Sometimes I touch maw-maw blessed by a Buddhist monk. What else can one do?

My question: what in you life you regret most?

I have two big fears.

I have a fear of death (not of myself dying but loved ones) and I am afraid of the dark.

My senior year of college I had to do a project that I had to do something altruistic for someone. I chose to go volunteer on a geriatrics unit at a hospital in hopes of helping my fear and while it was good for me short-term I ended up reverting back. Being a nursing student definitely helps.

As for my fear of the dark....it's weird. I'm not afraid of the dark in my bedroom but I am afraid when I'm in other places. I don't really have a way of dealing with it besides running from my car to my door when its dark out...and being paranoid....a lot.

Biggest regret? Being too heartbroken over something that happened to me in 12th grade and allowing it to ruin me for a good 4 years.


I may have done this wrong....anyways,

What is your best quality?

The way I broke up with a boyfriend I had been dating a very long time (for me at the time) and my first serious relationship.
I sometimes think back to that and hope he is doing well and I still feel badly to this day how I broke up with him. He was a great guy and deserved better.

What was the first impression you had of your SO?

Liberal, hippy, outdoorsy. He had long hair, we met at a bar. I was pretty drunk. I was going through a phase of mountain men. He is about as far from a mountain man as possible.
All WRONG assumptions.

What are you most proud of?

The fact that I graduated college, with honors, even though I got so sick in the middle of it that my dean wanted me to withdraw from school.

What makes you decide to tell someone a secret?

When I really have to get something off of my chest and the listener is a good secret keeper. But the first is probably more important.

Would you ever use the restroom in front of your SO?

No, but I helped someone cheat way, way back in my teen years. I still feel awful about it.

Question: Do you have any major regrets? If so, what's the greatest?

Only one, really: I wish I had stood up to my mother's "summers are for making money, not spending it" mantra when I was in college and studied abroad, just once.

Question: There is an elephant in your bathtub. How did it get there?

It was one of my elephant stuffed animals and I'm handwashing it.

The MOH "toast". It was a roast of the groom without any redeeming sweetness or joy or best wishes for our future together and I still haven't gotten over how how hurt I was and it really spoiled the day. I think it may have irredeemably harmed our friendship.

When was the last time you cried?

Friday morning, when I realized my place of work would probably flood and I was too injured to be there helping them get the place ready. (and only minor flooding, so it turned out ok!)

If you could change one thing about your SO's appearance, would you do it?

Yes, but because it is health related. SO is overweight and I wish he would make a conscious effort to change that. More for his health than appearance. He was a big guy when I fell in love with him.

If you had to be stuck in an elevator with 2 people you know from your real life, who would they be and why?

ETA: sorry, meant to quote Novel's post

my hubby- he is calming, never panics, and a great problem solver. Also- I would choose my best childhood friend- we never run out of things to talk about, never get on each others nerves, and I couldnt have anyone else stuck with me....

My dh because he always calms me (well almost always) and he's really smart so might figure out an escape plan and my sister because she's really smart too so b/w the 2 of them we will for sure get out!

If you were granted 1 wish what would it be (and it cannot be a wish for more wishes :rodent: )

I regret having my brother in my wedding. I did it because he's family and I had the belief that it was the "right" thing to do and I didn't want to upset my parents. Well, he showed up just in time, and was just really in and out the whole time. Missed the vows.
I wish I hadn't had the realization I had that day that no one will ever be more important to him than himself.

They raised me Catholic, and since I was a child I never liked religion very much. Hence, I have beliefs, however I am not part of any religion.

What do you thank your parents the most for at this point in your life?

For teaching me to be strong willed. I thank them for teaching me to love people and forgive those who have wronged me and most importantly they have taught me what it is to be determined and for that I am ever so thankful.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

If I could change one thing about myself, it would be to develop higher tolerance/patience for others. I sometimes get very irate over inconsequential things that I can't change about people and that is something I'd like to change.

What made you decide to marry your spouse/significant other?

As weird as it is, I thank my parents for being too busy to get overly involved in my life. I'm extremely independent and have always been self-sufficient. At the time, I just wanted attention from them, but now I'm really thankful.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

We love each other unconditionally. We complement each other perfectly- have fun together- laugh together- and when times are tough we are each others strength. I truly can't imagine my life without him- he is my bestfriend and love of my life.

I say I would love to live in Europe (Italy, Netherlands) or a tropical island like Bermuda or grand cayman but my friends and family mean the world to me and I don't know if I could leave them-- especially knowing that financially my parents would have a hard time coming to visit. Hubby and I are NYC people at heart so we would prob stay right where we are, but Boston would work too :)

What is one thing you would change about your relationship with your SO??

That's a tough one. I love the way my dh can be laid back (unlike me) and it does calm me at times. However at times it makes me even more reactive I think and that causes me to get frustrated with him because he can be slow to react (at least in my eyes) and that drives me crazy sometimes. For example, our house has damage from Irene and I am full of anxiety and want to start getting things done now but he is more of the mindset we cannot do anything right now as everyone is overwhelmed with the aftereffects and without electricity there is not much we can do etc I feel like he is just being too complacent and not proactive enough and while I know traveling to check it out could cause me lots more stress I also think not knowing can be just as if not more stressful. Of course I might regret it if the house is totally wrecked but I just *need* to know, KWIM?

So to answer the question (as you can see I took the long way to do that :cheeky: ) I would love to change the way I react to my perception of his slowness to react to situations and I know he would love to change the way I react immediately to most situations. He goes the more thoughtful slow way and I go the must take action immediately way and I wish we could more be on the same page with these kind of things. Ultimately this difference causes friction b/w us and that is the main reason I would like it to change but it's not so easy.

What is one thing most people don't know about you?
