Hello dear brother, Men are having big risks when it comes to living. Chances are they have to choose between career and love,which cause more men to take relationship for granted,unless they met a girl who's willing to take much responsibilities(emotionally and socially). Becoz,men thinks that being successful(career/business)and having more wealth makes them look a better man than others(men). So,in this case,they tend to risk their relationship(love/marriage)in exchange of success. I only had one say about woman,aside from taking the risks of choosing their men(ahurrmmm). The greatest risks a woman endures and no man can match is...giving birth. Have a nice day brother

I don't want to sound sexist but men seem to be the bigger risk takers. They seem to have to prove their bravery more by doing stupid dangerous things. Where as women are smarter then that and don't need to prove themselves, and when they see danger they stay away. Men have to be extremists, where as women are just content with being.

i think the other way...girls r at bigger risk as compared to men..as men hav nothing to lose..girls r weak physically so they can be easily overpowered by any hooligan but not incase of man they will fight till the end..in case of career ..also girls hav to make balance between there family career they hav to take care of there kids..so girls r more at risk...

I think that a woman dared to take risks,because she was strong,but in a family man is forced out,he felt it was his responsibility,he is no alternative. But no matter how good they are like.

I think men. :) Men are more confident that they can survive on streets, and women are averse to the idea. :) But, given the last few ruppees/dollars, the woman would be more inclined to gamble by taking a lottery that will open the the following day, going so far as starving herself and her family. So the extent of financial security defines her tendencies.

Hi vijayanths, there is a saying out here "neenda munage walla ki chali emiti". It means the person who is completely inside the water from head to toe, cannot feel the cold. Therefore, women use the same logic. If not today, tomorrow things are going to get worse, so I might as well take a risk and hope that god comes to my rescue. And more often than not, god does. :)

Hello vijayanths Man himself is a moving risk and everything he does he is taking a risk in one way or there other.We men we are really trying in life with all things we say or do we are alway calm and patient and we alway wait for it and take discussion when its time.All men take more risk.

hola vijayanths it depends in the situation. for me it can be both. it can be men and women. yeah your correct and other lotters men? men can take more risk in business in the future to support the needs of his family in the future. men should be take a risk for knowing such activites in household that woman cant do. men take risk in his future family because need to play the role or big role to guide better his family although women do. why women? because women take risk for giving birth to thier future child or children. women take good care of the kids when still there are still small that men cant do it but only the women. why both? its simply because if the men cant do it or not available then that time of the women to help. risk are just part of the challenges in life of the people in the whole world needs to face and resolve it so that we can struggle every seconds every minute every hour and everyday in our life because if theres no risk in our life there will be no right and wrong. like other lotters im a risk taker also and i always failed still trying to cope up.

both are courageous in their own aspects but women dont want to reveal it in public.men are mostly into risky stuff starting from their business to their life and want to take the risky line to the fullest and some would be successful and some others fail though but i havent seen women taking risk in their life as men do but they gather a lot of courage to elope with their lovers and i think it would be really hard for them to leave their parents.gud day.

You are right. Mostly men take chances in business activities, going abroad for work etc. Though women also take certain risks in selecting a life partner, the same is done by men too. Women also go abroad for work or studies, they also take up business activities. But at least some women are house wives and do not have these problems.

Yes, as Indians we feel that way Buchi, thanks for the nice discussion.

I think both men and women take equal risks. Men may take risks in choosing a woman,too. I think it depends on where a person's life leads to.

Dear friend, I could see that majority of men take risk. As it is seen in the present world marriage itself is a risk for men. There are lots of family issues coming up and a women can sue a man for large amount of money and his property. May be just a word from women could make a man's life miserable. Moreover women could be dependents to men, but majority of men are not depend they have to get their own income to upheld a family. Majority of defense people are men. The most risk affected works are done majority of men.

Yes, dear shamrack, I do feel the same, thanks for the nice discussion.

Well, in Indian society both men and women are taking great risks by choosing a partner through arranged marriage whom they have never met before. All they do is choose a partner based on their educational qualifications, salary and looks and dowry. That's a big risk on both the male and female. Apart from that, even women do take great risks on developing faith in a man who they think would make them feel secure for the rest of their life, which in turn grows in their minds as a greater insecurity. And a man also does the same, in trusting a woman. Well, Indian society is more male dominated, so men work more compared to women, even though things are changing, women can't go out in a field dominated with men and run around independently like them, winning contracts, and deals, because everything is male dominated. Give women the ideal respect and independence and liberty, surely they would take greater and more intelligent risks compared to men. The man woman comparison is too complicated, there will never be an ideal and perfect solution. :)

You have given a clear picture of Indian society and culture cobradene. Yes you are very right that both men and women take risks in arranged marriages.(my elder brother saw his wife only on the day of wedding)

I think it is a bit genetic.I have inherited this particular gene of' high risk 'quality from my father.[He was a brilliant lawyer who would dare take up any challenging case].It is there in me.My husband also takes risks but he would be slightly more systematic and cautious.As far as taking risks in business goes , it is advisable for the person who is not the prime bread winner to take this risk.In our community it is the accepted criteria for the man to be the "prime " Bread winner isn't it?Regarding choosing lifepartners I would say it is equal on both sides.Women are intuitively better at it and would make less mistakes if they make their own choice[this system cannot hold good in our arranged marriage syatem].Men may flip if they choose their women in their young age[ in the infatuation stage].

It is true you inherited that risk taking quality from your dad and doing intra day stock trading now(may be you are not doing intra day, just a guess) So, women can be more successful in love? I do know women can understand man's every move easily, but at the same time they are always over confident that their men are in real love with them and hence meet with lots of disappointment in the end. May be lack of world exposure a reason for this.thanks for the nice discussion.

i think that men likes more risks than women.men have this natural character to like risk,whatever the results are,but women is not like men,they often pay attention to result,not the process,women often select safe way to assure the success of result,not gain.

Hi vijay well risks both men and women take in different aspects, what is more risky to a man might not be so for a women and what they risk might not be so much of concern to us, the fact is both take risks, but i would say if someone is lazy, lazy with handling their own primary responsibilities then they for sure are putting themselves at risk...
• India

Yes both take risks in their fields as you rightly pointed out Voldrox, thanks for the nice discussion.

Hi vijayanaths, I think both takes risk at same level.Men takes risk in business and at work. Whereas women takes risk at home and maintaing home is not that easy matter. I think u know that right? But both has to take risk in their childres matters as it will effect their future.

hey vijay.. dont underestimate women.. i think both men and women take their own risks in life.. they might not be comparable with each other but then i think they are equally challenging in their own way.. its not easy to be a woman.. i can tell by my mom and my sister.. they take risks themselves.. and also its not easy to be a man as well.. i guess there is no easy way out to everything.. god puts obstacles in our life in order for us to learn and make the right decisions.. taking a risk means doing something that no one dare to do or at least doing something that you think might change your own life.. well its not that bad.. after its all said and done, we learn from these risks and obstacles we've encountered..

Hello vijayanths this is checkmail and me too think that most of the time womens do take more risk than mens do.Actually its the literacy level of an situation that avoids taking risk, most of the womens lack it.Most of the mens avoid taking risks knowing the outcome of the activity, and never dare to do it.But womens seems to be more developing in nature, so try to take more and more risks.But if the womens were as literate as mens do, in protective sense than both might be taking equal risks.Anyways its better to keep away from risks in our life, always prefer that mush as much is avail to us.Happy Mylotting.

I think both of the genders do take risks at an equal rate. Both genders are taking risk at times that are different and that depends on the individual themselves as well.Some would dare to take the risk while some would not.

It really depends. Man as I know is the one who take risk, as they will became a father and head of the family in the future. but as I observed in my family, my mother is more of than the risk taker than of my father. Me I am a risk taker and I always fail. The advantage is I learned. Some of my guy friends do not take risk because they don't want too. Yes i guess so, that woman take risk in choosing her man. Some woman too take risk when it comes to their business. It really depends of what they want in life.

I would say if the person is married, then the risk is equal. Both will consider the risk of the family when engaging to life's toughest decision. Both will risk the family if they decided to get divorced. Both will risk the family if one decided to work away from home. I think its not a matter of gender, but its a matter of making the right decision for every risk we all may come to deal with.

Yes, Fulltank, after both tale some risks together, true, thanks for the nice discussion.
