Hey all, Are you the one who's teasing your friends everytime??? Or do you support them?? For me, i infact, the entire group would definetly not leave a chance to tease any of my frnd if he's made a mistake or acted foolishly!!! its great fun! But actually i feel teasing helps the other person if he really takes it in a good sense! cos he will neva repeat the mistake again! But yeah, when it comes to me, i get a bit temperedbut again i feel its just human to be that ways...thogh i try and always learn from my mistakes!. What do you do??Tease or Please??? GIve your take???

Who says you can't please when you tease? I am quite a teaser and I have much fun teasing those around me. But those with me will know there is no malice in it. I just tease for the fun of it and they know I do support them when they need me.

Pleasingly teasing? They always accept and absolve them? That's great.Will you always bear with such teasing if some one treat you that way?

I take my time to tease people... but only when I know they can take it and when I really don't mean any harm by it. There is never any malicious intent behind any of it. And I usually only tease playfully with the people who I really care about... If I know something might offend or hurt a friend, then I won't even go there. I think that a lot of teasing should be somewhat pleasing.

teasing friends :)). you made me remember all the teasing fun we friends had during colleges and still have when we meet. the amusing part was if i teased the other used to tease back more funnily without feeling bad a little. many teasing spells to but on the whole we still remain best friends and support each other even today.

One of my really good friend sometimes hangs out with me and my best friend. He never really teases my best friend but he always teases me with stuff like your spoiled, you're mean and he aways laughs because he knows I get mad when he says those kind of stuff. I'm very sober kind of guy and always on walk in straight line. Last time I really became aggressive and told him that ,"Teasing's funny, but sometimes you take it overboard." If he make sfun of me any more, I will say,"Why did I ever think you were my real friend? If he bugs me anymore, will just ignore him & act like I didn't hear him.

Teasing is not often as good as those who use them want it to be.Teasing most of the time touches on some truths which had rather not be said! I know of a boy who had abnormally large ears at school, every time his colleagues wanted to tease him, they would ask such questions as, "which animal has the largest ears in the world?" the chorus of answers would be "an elephant" and all would burst into laughter while looking at the direction of this boy with excess ear lobes and pinna! He would feel terribly teased and embarrassed! This makes teasing very hurtful to feelings. No, I dont like teasing!

Hi Karvin, In regards to my friends I prefer to please them and support them in whatever they are doing, but I do tease some of my friends and they get a laugh out of it at the end, it all depends when you tease someone on what exactly you are teasing them about I think.

i've been teased all the time by my friends during highschool. but i think i handled them perfectly well. now that i'm in college, i don't see the need to please or even tease other people. it's better not to get others depend on you too much or hate you.

Around my house and home, teasing is a sign of affection. It is much better to be teased for other wise we don't like you or don't think you are worth the trouble and ignore you. We use teasing to point out minor mistakes and laugh about them together and then they don't happen again. And as long as you keep things good natured you can really sharpen your wits teasing back and forth.

teasing is bad, I support the person who is getting teased for his work, but if he has made mistake or wrong. By supporting him itself I ll make him to realize his mistake. I don't like teasing its bad habbit.

Hmm. You cant be angry when others tease you, if you are doing the same to others! Anyway, what i think is, teasing would not help a person to correct himself. Even though it is hillarious, you mustnt tease a person. You have to help him to get out of the situation and after he is settled, you can tease all you want. This is what i do. I remind the fellow of the situation a number of times and tease. But i make it sure that he is also in good shape to take my tease in good sense.
