Do you live an uncomplicated life or is your life a soap opera? Are there dramas and events in your life that make you think - this would make an amazing tv series!! Or do you plod along in life - wake up, do the household chores, go to work, come home, watch telly and go to sleep - just to do it all again the next day? How would you like your life to be?

I lead a pretty uncomplicated life, but don't really think of myself as just plodding along...I'm living the life I've always wanted to live. Drama is fun to watch on a soap opera, but it can be quite painful to experience it in real life. Even though people in real life may not fake their own deaths, assume new identities, or lie about the paternity of their children quite so often as on the soaps, that doesn't mean the stresses of their everyday dramas doesn't make them want to do some crazy stuff. I'll leave the drama to others and just enjoy my life!

I do try to keep my life as drama-free as possible, as drama usually involves conflict and uncertainty, which adds stress to my life, and i do not handle stress well. This does not mean i lead a boring life. I still enjoy going out and doing things, having fun with friends and having a little excitement now and then, just not in the form od soap-opera type drama.

Im a bit of both really. Sometimes my life seems like it would make a perfect soap opera! Like really, i could watch a soap opera on tv and relate story lines to my life. But other times, my life seems very simple and boring and not a lot going on. So i think it would depend a lot on what was happening at the time you ask... Right at the moment, Hmmm.... Slight soap opera. Like one of those story lines that isnt too interesting. Not anything big hehe, but still something going on!

You're right, it does depend on what is happening at the time..for example, now my life has settled down but a couple of years ago it was a complete turmoil (probably at the time I left a long-term relationship and my ex couldn't handle it!)..thanks for responding!
