Would You Rather - Wednesday



According to last week's results, the majority of you would prefer to live one long, continuous lifetime rather than have to venture through high school more than once (even if you couldn't remember you'd already been through it before). 

As for me, I'm definitely a let-me-live-forever type. Not to upset anyone's religious beliefs, but I kinda suspect we do the second one already.

On to this week  -- I'm reading some darker stories at the moment, which prompted this week's question. If heartache were on the horizon:


Would you rather . . . . ?


A) Love someone with all your heart, knowing they can never be yours


or


B) Be loved by someone with all of their heart, knowing you'll never feel the same

Don't forget to check in on Friday, when I announce the first selection in our Online Book Club. I'm super excited about this. No lie. Call me a dork if you want, I don't care!!

OMG! You're killing me Tracy. I'm not sure which one I'd prefer. I mean, there's always a chance things will change.

Okay, so instead of researching agents today, I'm going to spend the day going crazy with this question. ;)

Tracy said...

Hey don't blame me.

Blame all the dark romance I've been reading.

Anne Gallagher said...

Wow, you are dark this week. Well, I can honestly say that I have indeed, lived number one and number two. Neither are fun or pretty.
And I'm still alone so, in answer to your question,

I'd rather not love at all.

Definitely choice B. Just sucks the other way around.

Summer Frey said...

Hmmm...that is a tough one, but I guess I'd go with B, because at least then I'd be able to be kind to the other person, even if I didn't love them with the same passion.

Chris Phillips said...

b easily

Melissa said...

Ummm WOW. First would you rather that I actually stared at the screen and couldn't decide really quickly which one I'd rather.

In the end, I'd have to go with B. I'd much rather someone else suffer the agony of unrequited love than me suffer. (that's mean, but honest!)

Candyland said...

I just blogged about this! We're speaking the same language today, sister. I'm totally A. I'm okay knowing I could love and love and not get it in return.

Elena Solodow said...

Hmm, this is also a tough one. Damn you, Tracy! I'm gonna go with A.

Patti said...

That's the toughest one you've had yet. I think I'd go with B, but that would make me selfish, okay maybe A, but that would be painful. Oh, I don't know. Hopefully I won't have to experience either.

Elana Johnson said...

Okay, this is HARD. But I think I'd go with A. I would hate to be Katniss, and have Peeta and know I didn't A) deserve him or his love and/or B) have to live with that knowledge.

So yeah. A all the way.

Colene Murphy said...

B! B! It's selfish, but it's true. A is a painful thing that I have felt and don't ever want again!!

Christopher said...

Definitely the second one. Might suck for the other person but at least I won't be miserable. Selfish I know.

Lydia K said...

You make it hard to choose! I guess I pick B. I think you could turn that into mutual love, but the first, never.

The Happy Whisk said...

Yow.

Janet Johnson said...

Having done #2, I go with #1 choice all the way. Guilt eats at me still. :(

Meredith said...

Agh, this is such an awful choice! I guess I'd pick #2, but I feel like that makes me an awful person :)

Donea Lee said...

I feel awful about picking B. (Actually, not so much - because people who really love me, give me things.) :) Actually - I'm with Lydia on this one...it's easier to find it in yourself to love someone back than the other way around.

Kindros said...

I've been in both situations, and preferred B. Unless they are some crazy stalker and end up murdering you because if they can't have you, no one will. Then maybe A, but will it turn you into a stalker and get you thrown in jail?

I'll go B as my final answer, but always be looking over my shoulder. :) Looking forward to Friday.
