I have a few times and hated every second of it, I am not a fighter by nature but will kick ass if backed into a corner or protecting a loved one!!

Nope. I don't like physical violence in any form. I avoided it as a kid, and I certainly am not going to start fighting as an adult. Words can always solve problems.

In college I was in a fight at a house party where I didn't know anyone there. I had just walked in off the street, It was fun.

Yep. I'm not really into fighting, but there's always someone who wants a fight. Which is why I wear steel toe boots ...

Maybe a shouting match, but never a physical fight.

Such an odd question

Yes. From 9th to 12th grade, when I moved to where we live now, it was a VERY frequent occurrence. It was a "survival" thing, and I toughened up REALLY quickly. But I live in Baltimore, so I guess that says it all right there :/

One time. I rarely go to bars, but it was my anniversary, and my husband and I went to see some friends at a Halloween shindig at a bar/pool hall close to a theatre where I used to work. Two random guys got into a shoving match, and fell on top of me on their way to the ground. However, the fall didn't end the fight. I was up at the bar to get a drink, and away from the people I was with, so I didn't have anyone to stop my temper or my instinct to immediately resolve a situation like that. So, I got up swinging to get out from underneath them, and dragged one guy off from the other so they would just walk away.

I was lucky, they were shorties, and so drunk they didn't really understand I was there, and very luckily, didn't understand I was something else to hit. I didn't get hurt, and the guys figured out quickly what happened, and were quick to apologize to me, and they peacefully let themselves be escorted out by my husband and his equally huge friend.

I am not one to start fights. But I have a temper that can potentially end in one. Especially in physical defense of another. I study martial arts, but I study a form based on peaceful redirection of energy. However, I also study a nasty guerrilla technique.

I enjoy physical contact, and "fighting" in a controlled environment full of people with love behind their fists is play to me. I was that way as a kid, too. I'll giggle my head off while pinned in a painful wrist lock, or wiping blood off my nose. I do have a serious belief in being capable of physically defending yourself and your loved ones, or even being able to protect a complete stranger in danger.

But it would be a serious risk to myself if I were to just willy nilly go start fights, and part of my training is an understanding that I do not put myself in dangerous or unpredictable situations like that. I understand that preparedness and premeditation are two different things.

When I was a really young teen, my boyfriend, and 3 other friends were walking down the street & there was this group of adults (one older man & two older women, probably around early-mid 40's), and these 3 are clearly drunk & wabbling a canoe over their heads in the driveway. So, my punk ass boyfriend back then makes a funny remark. The guy starts being really rude with him in return. I say something to the guy & the two women came running over in a flash & started trying to pummel on me. The way my fists were flying around, fighting two drunk women well over twice my age at once. I didn't stop and the last thing I remember is my bf picking me up over his shoulder while I threw punches through the air & kicked & screamed the rest of the way down the street, because well, I defend myself to the death.

There have been a few others I won't mention. I don't enjoy, start or seek out fights (nasty stuff), but lordy lordy, I defend myself against every attack or threat.

I have been in numbers of fights as a teenager. I went to a school that was very preppy and those people never seem to stop saying this person said this and that person said that. I can't tell you how many issues I had over time. I would even have people I had no clue even existed trying to pick fights with me because someone said I said this. Well, if I had something to say to you, I would have said it. It's was awful for me though. I think I had a grand total of at least 10 fist fights. Couple were against boys too. I don't go looking for fights, but I will finish the fight.

Fights are a lot of the reason I don't want to go out into public and drink. The last thing I need to do is get arrested. And trouble never ceases to come my way. I'm better off just staying home.

Haven't been in any physical fights since I was a kid. I'm pretty good at vocally setting my foot down and then getting the hell out of Dodge. Has worked well so far. If I did get in a fight, it could be awkward as I'm a bit on the small side.

Haven't been in any physical fights, ever. But, in 4th grade a girl slapped me in the face and told me that white people started AIDS. I just sat there in shock.

I never had to, my twin brother was always the more physically aggressive one, maybe that's why I went on to become a doctor, and he went into the service. He ended up becoming a doctor too, after the service, guess twins will be twins after all.

Not a nice thing to have happen to you, but you got a chuckle out of me from your post. Thanks.

I was involved in a few fights when I was younger, living at home. I'm just glad to be out of there. I'm not a violent person and am just happy I don't have to be anymore.

My partner has actually gotten into a bar fight once. Some guy shoved his friend and he was defending his friend. The bouncers broke it up.
