Have you ever actually been in a physical fight in your life?

When I consider what my own school years and teenage years were like I am actually suprised when I come across so many people that have never actually been in a physical fight before! I don't know how the heck they managed to go so long in their lives and avoid confrontations like this. I haven't had a physical confrontation for a very, very long time thankfully but it was pretty common when I was a teenager to either be in a punch up with someone or to see others go at it! It was either at school or on a sporting field somewhere and seemed to just be par for the course. So what about you? Have you managed to get through life so far "fight free" or have you had to pretty much face the odd scrap as part of growing up also?

No, never James. I was one of those cutest little girl who would dare do that. Not even with her sisters. I think girls are pretty much not into physical fighting but every other boy I come across has had this once in a life time. That goes to show the instinctive difference between the two genders. having said this, a blow or punch so to speak, could be similar to a girl's killer spats in form of verbal arrows. I still remember the dialogue from Pretty Woman, where Julia Roberts says that boys are taught how to punch right from there high schools.....I think it's a complete guy thing. A guy who hasn't experienced this is not a guy at all.

My life has been totally physical 'fight free'. Does that make me a lesser human, James?

I would hope so mimpi! lol. I just can't picture you in a physical fight at all! But I bet you could be pretty adept with your words though! Yes, some would definitely agree that it's a guy thing that we all should experience at least once in our lives but amazingly there is a huge number of guys that have never had to! This is of course a good thing but I still found it odd and was very surprised that this was the case. Thanks for responding to the discussion and don't you ever break that passive streak!

Thankfully James Never. The one or two occasions which may have led to one, i was protected and someone else always came to protect me. Not that i am a coward, but it's something i detest. In fact do remember getting my clothes a little bloodied a few years ago while trying to seperate two friends having a fight. Seeing the bloodied shirt,some of my other friends got further agitated and complicated the whole fight into a street brawl. I think here it has mostly been words are louder than action. But having said this would not hesitate if pushed against the wall or to protect near and dear ones.

Lucky you alok! It's not something I particularly enjoyed either but sometimes there was no choice but to fight. I also used to do my fair share of running away as well but you can only run for so long before having to face up to certain people to end things once and for all! I too have seen some pretty scary situations like the one you have shared so if I can reduce arguments to words alone then this is obviously the preferred option. Thanks for responding and I hope that you never have to change your peaceful streak!

was involved in a few fights when younger and easily hyped up. now tone down and come to think of it, it was childish to fight for the sake of fighting and just over a staring incident. those days, we were young and immature. haha. now, busy earning money, where got time to get into fight. am i right.

haha at last i can spit these things out to people who don't know me ..coz u know what..i really can't forget the last physical fight i had last month..actually it was long time ago before i got envolved in such fights..i'm 26 years old & i forgot how to be aggressive , i hope.. so there was a day a friend of mine called me to hang out a little..when i saw a baseball stick in his hands i realized there will be something wrong going on soon..so he told me come on buddy we got a fight , some guy messed with my girl & i have to teach him a lesson so are u up for this ?? i was like "sure okay where is he?" minutes later other friends gathered & we were like ten! anyway..the guy we went for acted like a nice young lady when he realized the reason for our VISIT to his work place.. & i wanna be honest..i'm the kind of guys he just can't keep on being bully to someone who isn't up for it..so i was the most mercifull one among them all (my friends i mean) .. CONCLUSION : i got the baseball hit on my head mistakenly by one of my friends during the fight & some guy out of no where gave me a bunch like a boxer champ (damn i feel dizzy when i remember this) & guess what..i was the only one who got TOUCHED in this fight ,reminding again u guys that i was the ONLY one to be not willing to hurt the girl-stalker after all..weird world..i should have shown more violence maybe that would have kept the baseball stick away from my head !

From school age, right up until my middle 20s I was always in a fight, it just seemed to be the way of my life. Trouble followed me around like a bad smell. At school I was always in a fight with other girls, and then when I was older it seemed to be even worse. Thankfully now though, I no longer have that problem!

i have had this problem too when i was in elementary school. I remembered that time i accidentally poured water onto a girl's shirt, ends up after the last class session, she has called up bunch of guys to wait me outside the school canteen. I was so scared that i ran out of the school, to a house outside the school, then ran all the way to my mum's car when she reached the school compound. I was chased by a guy holding sticks in his hands. Scary experience i would say! Everything went okay the next day, when i asked my mum to escort me to the school compound. No more fighting but a clean talk, i didnt get beaten. teehee!! Lucky me for having the best mom on earth. This fight is maybe due to the immaturity of our thoughts as we were only like 9 years old at that particular time. Thanks God it doesn't happen now when im in university, life's great ever since. The enemies has eventually became my friends. I feel silly thinking over it, but it is really a true experience that horrified my whole life.

Hi meltigloo and welcome to mylot! By the way, if you post your response as a new reply rather than under someone else's then you will be paid for it! I don't think you earn for putting it in this spot instead! I think that we all tend to be less than wise when we are younger and end up acting before thinking with no real concern for the consequences. As we get older we of course become wiser and seek alternatives to violence wherever possible and with a much clearer head and a conscience! Your experiences certainly sound like they were quite frightening for you! You made it through it all at least and hopefully will never have to face situations like this ever again. Thanks for your comments.

I very nearly got in a fight wth another girl over a boy but I walked away from it. I was at a dance with a boy. The date had been arranged by my mother and his grandfather who worked together. His grandfather had said to my mother that his grandson was going out with the wrong sort of girl and he would like him to meet some nice girls for a change. I only went out with him because I liked his grandfather. A gir came up to me at the dance and started shouting at me saying that he was hers and she would fight me for him. I just said she could have him and walked way. His grand father was very upset when he heard what had happened and was not happy with him for getting me into that situation but I was not really worried about it. I do not like seeing people fight. There is enough trouble in the world without individuals fighting over silly things. I am 59 now so I sould think I will get through life without fighting.

Funnily enough many of the fights I remember seeing eneded up happening because of a disagreement over some other guy or girl! That was a very calm and mature way to deal with the situation and just walk away like you did. These days I too would just try to do the same! And yes, you are very right in saying that there is enough trouble in this world already. If only we could individually express a more calm nature towards each other overall then collectively the world would be far more peaceful. Thanks for responding to the discussion wanderer.

I'm glad that you didn't fight. I always thought it was stupid for people to fight over a guy or a girl. I mean, do you see that person fighting for you? I always believed if that person was worth it then they wouldn't give you a reason to fight. And you're right, there is enough trouble in the world. People fight over the most ridiculous things.

Once again, very, very true! As far as I am concerned, if you end up in a situation where you have to fight to get a guy or girl then the girl/guy involved is NOT the one for you in the first place and obviously has no loyalty to you so why bother? A bigger person with self pride would just walk away.....

Besides the ones with my sister when we growing up...I remember one when I was 10 and at school (I think that's the only time I had a physical fight). I'm not really sure what strted it....it was something to do with our grades on a test....but this girl in my class tripped me as I was walking to my seat with my lunch...and my lunch fell on the floor. I was VERY hungry and really mad at the girl...so, I gave her a punch...and of course, she gave me one back. Well, to make the story short, we ended up fighting the whole lunch hour and most of the other girls in class wer involved with a few of them trying to pull us apart and getting punched in the process. It beame quite famous and one of the girls made a poster of it ('The Great Fight' starring Sandhya and Ambily....directed by 'The Devil'....blah blah) and put it out for all to see. It seems silly and funny now....and we all laugh over it....and it made us famous at school.

I don't mean to be sexist here but women fighting was always a funny situation to witness when I was in school. And any girls that DID end up having a brawl pretty much eneded up with the same level of infamy that you received because it was a rare occurence! I am sure that at the time it was quite a scary situation on many levels but at least you can look back on it now and find the humour in it. Thanks for responding and I hope that that was the first and last scrap you ever have to think about!

lol..I was at all all-girls school. I wouldn't have even considered glaring at another girl if I was at a co-ed. My cousins had always warned me about how boys did find it funny when girls had a physical fight (I'd also heard them talk about such incidents at their school). That was the only scrap I had and I'm sure I won't have another one (lol...after all these years of maturing I hope I have enough self-control to avoid a physical fight even when I am provoked)

lol.... We always knew when there was a girl-on-girl fight happening or about to start because there would always be at least on person running around the school yard screaming "Cat fight! Cat fight! Cat fight!" This is what we referred to them as because of all the scratching and screaming! lol. Well I too have far n more self control these days so like you I have matured a lot on this front thankfully.

I haven't had a fight for going on 30 years, but in my late 20s to early thrities I got involved in several. I never started one, but I also wouldn't take a backward step if someone got aggressive, and I was an argumentative little bugger (gee, I don't think I've changed much in that respect lol), and if they took it to the next step, I'd oblige by knocking them down. Never did lose one, but I ended up with broken bones in both hands and a nasty scar under my hair on the back of my head from an ashtray. The fight started, all my friends grabbed me to stop me hitting him again, and he got up, grabbed an ashtray, and started banging away at my head. They let me go then, and I finished him off lol. My last fight ended up with the other fellow in hospital with serious concussion, at which point I decided I should modify my response, and since then I have managed to avoid any further physical confrontations.

The only physical fight I have ever been in took place when I was about six years old. I was upset at my friend because I thought my Mom liked her better. We started wrestling and pulling each others hair. We yanked on my Holly Hobby doll and ripped one of her arms off. We started laughing and decided to play with Barbies. LOL - it's a pretty funny memory for me.

During my elementary and high school days in the 1980s and 1990s, I had been through many physical fights, as well as being bullied and harassed. Now, I am known as the person who is very vulnerable, because I have been in an incident which made a turning point from being safe to unsafe. I feel that physical fight does not solve problems, it just makes matters worse.

I agree with you that fighting can make matters worse. Especially if it triggers off revenge cycles between people that keep on coming at each other over and over again because they just never seem to be able to leave each other alone. I hope that whatever you faced will always be a thing of the past now Peppersquirrel and thanks for the response too.

You bring up a interesting question. I think it probably has to do with the fact that some people are just more agressive and confrontational than others. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Luckily I have never been in a physical fight with anyone and I can only remember seeing one physical fight and I was at a very safe distance. Now unfortunately I could go nose to nose with the best with my mouth! LOL It's more of a man thing anyway. A lot of times men fight to make a statement or claim something but women..... they go for the juglar! Have good day!

I think the schools we may have attended or the areas we have grown up in play a major part as well. For many it is a matter of necessity to be able to hold their own physically yet for others, fighting ins something they only see in movies or hear about in rumours etc! I am someone that can get nasty with my words too and I always have to try to be calm in this sense. At least it is a change from the physical reactions I used to respond with in my youth though! I agree with you too that some women can have acid tongues and can really smack someone's ego out of the park if they choose to! Thanks for responding fasttalker.

Mine encounter was bit unusual, i fought with my office mate. We were of one department, same cubicle just ahead of me in work level. Everybody from office especially the ladies scared and get nervous once he raise voice. One time, half hour before our off, he actually asked favor to do something before i go home. I suggested to do it next day anyway other requirements are incomplete and it will still come out useless. But he insist and became harsh, said something touched my ego. A very personal word that triggers me. I stay calmed, to avoid trouble i did his request. At sharp 5 o'clock, exactly im done, swiftly keep the documents inside my drawer. And said "goodbye, i wont render overtime today". So i hurriedly went out from the building and wait for vehicle at the gate house. Few minutes after, he come to the gate guard and order me to go back to office and finish his request. This time, i kept lowered down my nerves but gnashing my teeth. When i entered the office, what met my eyes was this supervisor sitting at the lobby with ladies office mates, chatting and laughing, ordering me again. I went right to the drawer and get the documents and come closer to him, i tear off pieces the papers in front of him, throw off into his face, seized his shirts collar and pressed him against the wall. I told him "you ought to know me, your being UP top guy wont work for me. He never said anything but stayed in his position and look very pale. That very morning, everybody from the office sold to what i did, they said it was a breakthrough. My direct boss called me up, i was ready for any consequence but He said Paul admitted that he bad mouthed me before i got terribly angry. From that on, thus engineers with excessive proud from UP, Ateneo and other top universities turn humble , cool and gentle. I could say i was on the right track because the HR didnt comment neither send memo. Just recently, we meet in the mall, we shake hands and he reminds me our quarrel. We laughed together with his wife.

Wow! Well this was certainly an interesting event lil! It sounds like you were very lucky though to not have this escalate into something more seeing as it happened at your place of work. I too went ballistic at my workplace once after I had just left High School but the outcome was not as positive as this one unfortunately. I ended up resigning over it actually and I was lucky it wasn't taken further. I think it's great too that the two of you can now shake hands and laugh over the incident. It would have been terrible if it had caused an ongoing battle! Thanks for responding and for sharing your story.

Remembering this makes me smile. I was a freshman and a tomboy, but since i was a new student, there were sophomore boys (yes, boys) who were obviously checking the new girls out. It was lunch break and they went to our classroom and shamelessly approached us. They were fresh, so i told them to leave. They would not. So i kicked a chair, they ran, then came back to tease us... i punched one guy after i grabbed him by his shirt. His cousin came to me and pinned me on the corridor wall. I struggled, tried to bite his arms but could not. He was strong. He got me so scared when he muttered something about me being just a girl and should be careful...From then on, i sort of mellowed and stopped being a tomboy. It was the third and last physical fight i had with a boy. BTW, i met that guy 14 years after high school graduation and he became one of the best boyfriend I've had (that's the reason for my smile). His name was Grant.

Scraps with my brothers and sister aside, I cannot think of any physical fights. My younger sister was the scrapper. You know how the older sibling usually takes up for the younger ones? Nope, not me....I mean I would but, no to the point of getting into a physical fight. But, my sister was always getting into fights, and it didn't matter if it was boys or girls. I remember one time, in jr. high, we were walking home from school. There were a couple of very tough girls following us. They just kept taunting us. My sister kept getting madder and madder. I just kept walking, trying not to hear what they were saying, not really caring. All of a sudden, my sister dropped her books on the ground, spun around and charged the girls. The girl she attacked was quite a bit bigger than her, but she's not very big, anyway. They were rolling around on the ground, pulling hair, poking each other in the eyes, trying to make two nostrils one, etc. My sister got the upper hand, ended sitting on top of the girl, grabbed a huge hoop earring the girl was wearing, and dared her to move. My sister put a bit more pressure on her grip of the earring, until the girl gave up. Needless to say, we weren't picked on any more that year. Shoot, I never wanted to get in a fight with her after that. She was scarey!*LOL*

I can't even begin to number the amount of scraps and outright brawls I have been into over the years. Of course, being in prison added to the number somewhat; so did being an opinionated drunk several times. I know there are people out there that have never been in an actual fight; my guess is they do their best to avoid confrontation of any kind. Myself, if I have something to say, I say it,and to hell with anyone that doesn't like it. Ya wanna take it outside and finish the discussion?

I used to have the same attitude myself myklj and would instantly push for a confrontation if a situation didn't go the way I wanted it to. But I think I have mellowed a LOT over the years and I am far calmer these days. From a different perspective that I am sure you can relate to yourself; after realizing for the first time that you can get hit and still survive without too much discomfort then your whole perception changes. Sometimes you have no choice but to fight and to lose the fear of getting hurt is a major step in having a greater chance of walking away afterwards! I am not someone who would seek a fight at all anymore if I can help it but I am secure in my own knowledge that if I HAD to then I can at least take care of myself to a point. OK, we're done with all the verbal BS so meet me behind the mylot building in ten minutes. My thanks to you this time around for responding may as well be a whuppin' myklj!

Yes, with my sister. I lost. Well I think because she's my older sister, I chose not to fight back and I just protected the part of my body being injured. She pulled my hair and sat on top of me and started banging my head on the cold tiled of the house. This happened twice. I had 4-5 bumps on my head and had a lot of falling hair the 2 days. We just laugh about it now. My sister and I are very close. Those fights happened because I was still on my rebellion phase and she was always hot headed. No whenever we fight, we just stay quiet and not talk to each other. Before the day ends we're laughing as if nothing happened. Fights happen, may it be physical or verbal, and it happens because of conflict. But its normal and we can't stop it from happening. These are challenges that we should face and we should manage to get through.

Having a husband hit his wife is not good at all though so I hope this doesn't happen ever again. Thanks for responding to the discussion.

I did if before when i was still young around 8 to 11 years old. I and my brother usually fight in pity things physically even if am a girl i always fight back for i am his elder. I was so immature that time and i get angry easily. Now i can laugh at it when i recall those things. I am glad that it didnt happen again decades ago. We are close friend now and we have common friends too . We still have some pity arguement but it does not lead to physical fight anymore for he so big for me.lol. I think we are mature already an we can handle now our differences. And sometimes we play computer games together and infact he is the one who intruduce mylot site. I am happy i have a brother like him for he is always there to help me when i need help especially about computers for he is an expert.

Can you imagine your poor Brother having to explain to his friends how his Sister kicked his backside Margarit! It is good though that you have both put this all behind you now and become such good friends. We all seem to mellow out a bit as we age! Thanks for responding and good luck beating him at computer games now instead of just plain beating him like before! lol.

I cant beat my brother now not because he so big and strong but because we are good friends already.lol, And i hate fighting for i am done with it. Even in computer games i still cant beat him for he is an expert, thats why i decided to be his allies to bit the enemies but sadly because of me we lose the game. Too bad for him. lol

I think that this is one of the positive aspects of us getting older debby! At least we mellow in regards to fighting and aggression.
