Do you have any enemies?

I suppose so. I mean, they say there's no love without hate and thus, that means there's no friends without enemies. And let me tell you, I have some terrific friends.

Jaden, 21
Brampton, Ontario  CANADA

Yes :( :( :( Although I dont think of them as enemies, they are just people who hate my guts, and good reason, and I feel crappy thinking about them, and If i ever ran into them again i'd run off crying. I don't hate them, they hate me, and I hate myself for the reasons they hate me.

Talia, 23
, CT   USA

I'm probably my own worst enemy.

Jill, 60

Everybody does, and, as proud as I am to be a freak, I am still relatively normal in that sense. Certainly, I have more enemies than friends...

Mick, 30
, IL   USA

If I do, and I'm sure I do, I don't know who they are.

Reba, 51
, MD   USA

Not since the days in the sorority!!

Susan, 32
, IL   USA

There are people out there that I am sure are not too fond of me, and there are cer tainly people out there that I am not too fond of, but to call them enemies is a bit dramatic. That word makes it sounds like I am going to battle them to the death next time I see them, hehe.

Maggie, 20
, IL   USA

Well, there are people I disagree with very strongly, but I wouldn't call them enemies. They are more like "confused adversaries." I can't blame them for being misinformed.

Eric, 18
Beverly Hills

Only person that I can think of is my fiance's ex-wife. She really hates me. Other than that, no one.

Cathy, 26
, ND   USA

yes 2. both males. 1 is my biological father (a.k.a. sperm donor) and 2 is my sister's ex fiance

Anjel, 19

None that have come forward.

Alias Irrelevante

*heh* Just one that I can think of.

Karen, 21

No, not really. I dislike some people, but I don't consider them enemies.

Kevin M.

I don't think so. My ex-husband was for a while, but he died some years ago.

Jane, 60
West Linn
, OR   USA

None that I know of. There are people who dislike me, but I wouldn't classify them as enemies.

Laura, 36
, MA    USA

I hope not, but I think there's one parent of a student that would lop my head off given a chance and the proper tools!

Tracy, 24
Ocean City

nah, life is too short for enemies and grudges.. if i can't stand someone, i cut him/her out of my life and move on, or else i have minimal contact and keep it civil

Katie2, 18

Absolutely. This used to bother me when I was younger. Not so anymore. To each his own I guess. I will say that I have far fewer now than I did when I was younger. It's easier to avoid those we don't get along with now. I think it's healthy to live through making an enemy...and it's the best way to realize true friendship when it comes along.

I don't know. . . . .I know I used to know people who really found my irritating, and even evil. . .I don't know if I could honestly call them "enemies". . . The idea seems fascinating to me though. . ..When I play a serious game of chess, the other player is, in a sense, within the context of that game, my "enemy". . .If I was to be part of an American armed forces unit that was fighting Iraq or Serbia, then those people I'd be killing would be my "enemy", although I usually try to understand and embrace as many cultures as I can to increase my awareness and world view, rather than dismiss it as backwards and proceed to destroy its people. . . One of the two central recreational passions in my life is the sport of hockey, and I love the sheer brutality of it, without apologies, mostly because, once the game is over almost all of these players honestly admire and embrace the skills and tenancity of the "enemy" that they were just pummelling the shit out of an hour before. . .They can sit next to them at a bar and have a hearty respectful loving male-bonding time. . .Hockey players are generally among the coolest people you'll ever meet. . .so, again, I don't know. . . I hope not. . .I'm not trying to make any enemies, and hating people usually is a profound waste of energy and time. . .Can you have intense friendships or love affairs if you can't feel the hate that having a real enemy implies to me?. . Once again, I just don't know. . .

I wouldn't say enemies, but there are a probably about a dozen folks who don't really speak to me and more and I'm sure it is probably because I've blown them off or made it clear I was dissappointed in them.

Felicia, 35
, MA   USA

Bruno is really paranoid about having all those enemies, if you ask me...most people are completely indifferent to you....

Mick, 30
, IL   USA

probably, but I can't think of any off the top of my head. (knowing the people around here, they probably are my enemies and just don't tell me to my face)

Angela, 16
, SC   USA

only Satan & his followers

Melodi, 19
, OH   USA

I recently completed a website design for a friend, and I have several school projects to finish.

Shanna, 15
Cardiff  ENGLAND

Not that I am aware of.

Janet, 42

Mainly just myself.
