I'm asking this question, do you guys think its best to "Play it safe" in life, or "Live life on the edge?"
Do you think its best to live your life to the limit, take chances, or to just play it safe, and stay in your comfort, etc?


I'll give you an example:
People tell me that I play it safe too often. A lot of my girlfriends, and co-workers meet guys off the net, or clubs, bars, etc...get to know them, (in a friendly sort of way, at least they claim)and a lot of them get paid trips to various places (My one friend just went to New Orleans this past Sunday on a all paid trip EVERYTHING, and I have a co-worker who just got a paid trip to Italy from a man she meant on a plane!!!) I just cant do stuff like that, I'm a pay on my own kinda girl, lol. They all claim that they give up no sex for what they are doing.

I've been living on the edge for years. (I chose to do so.)

Only for the last four or five years I've been cooling down a lot. Looks like I'm just about a year to go to have a 'normal' life ;-)

It's an age thing.
I think everyone should have a period in his life that he/she lives on the edge. You need to find out stuff and experience stuff both happy and unhappy, successes and failures, do crazy stuff, do stuff you know is bad for you, do stuff that you feel you want or should do, to become an a full-grown person.

I agree with Jeroen, it's an age thing. Growing up means you have explored so many dead end streets that you start avoiding when you get older. Getting free rides from men I hardly know is not "living on the edge" in my book, it's cheap. There are always limits you instictively do not cross because you could be pushed over the edge. Just trust your instincts and don't let other people decide which risks you take.

Both in moderation, if either. But I really just completely stay out of things. I still haven't figured out if this is good or bad. I can see pros and cons, but I'm starting to think this is a mistake on my behalf. After shutting myself out for a long time, it's so unbelieveably hard for me to get back in. It wasn't me who first shut myself out, though. It was other people. But it's my fault for not trying to get back in a while ago.

Overall I think this might be the safe side, I see people scew up all the time, and I guess I learn from their mistakes without even having to do anything myself. And, I by not throwing myself out into situations, I don't have to set myself up for disappointment.

But, it's not totally on the safe side because my social life is pretty much dead.

My life can be fun at times, though. I have a few friends that I just naturally click with and we do stupid things together. My family goes to awesome places and my dad does STUPID (and dangerous) things that are hilarious. I like roaming around outside, especially on summer nights, and my cousin, brother, and I know how to have fun when we're together.

I think my life is somehow a combination of the two. But, I'll be able to do more when I'm older. My best friend and I plan to go on this huge roadtrip and a few other groovy things.

Not quite sure how "living on the edge" is defined. Perhaps its different for everyone. What Jeroen said was very true.

I'm 22 and I feel about 50 sometimes; I've been in education for as long as I remember, and would just like to bum around for a while and be well...young... When I FINALLY graduate from uni in a few months I would like to take a year off and do some things like travel the world ect... but my problem is that most of my friends are boring and don't seem to want to do anything that doesn't involve their local pub. Still, it shouldn't stop me....

At the end of the day, you have to do what makes you happy, not just 'content'. There's nothing wrong with trying something and failing at it; there's nothing worse than sitting thinking 'what if...'.

Unless you're trying Russian Roulette. Failing has its consequences. I myself prefer 'what if...' in that situation.

I get asked if Im abused or crazy quite a bit. I have somehow ended up on 'random' drug tests for the last 6 months.

Because we all know, every athlete obviously has a mental problem because wanting to do something with your life is outside the norm.
