i am used to having friends who make fun of each other, kidding around how one is so dark they are called negro (dark guy) and negra (dark girl), how one of our friends who is big is often teased as a pig indirectly. we do not mind these crude jokes since we are very close friends. even if i feel bad sometimes if they make fun of me, it soon fades and i don't feel bad anymore. so when i am with other friends, i have this tendency to make fun of others that i may not know when i am going overboard. so how do you really know the limit of making fun of friends? do you wait for them to tell you or do you stop yourself from making fun of them?

Well you can know how much the person might feel bad and hurt of you making fun of that particular person, because i have gone through this, i really never aprreciate people who are not that close to me and think that i have given them the authority to make fun of me and insult me. well i am a bit different i notch them down totally then so that they are not again going to make nor any other person a fool lol.. but some are not like me they wont be able to tell you how hurt they feel so dont just hurt others without knowing how comfortable they are with you. and as far as i think a healthy fun is ok but pointing on someones negative points or on things which are natural.like if they are dark its not their problem, or if fat etc.. so think properly my dear friend :) happy mylotting

oh i do not tease someone when i feel that we are not that close and if he or she might feel bad, i only tease those who tease me too, but sometimes those who tease feel bad when i tease them. kinda strange because i don't feel bad when they tease me but if they are teased, they are hurt. i am just confused sometimes because they get easily hurt but when they tease people, they also go overboard

making fun out of people feels good but if it is your close friend. But people has a different behaviour someone could get easily be mad so choose the one you are trying to fool.

there's this one friend who seems okay being teased at times and at other times he will pout and will keep silent when we tease him, that's my signal to stop teasing him
