It's normal that people get jealous, when it's about love. But what I want to know is how much do you envy in everyday life these situations:

1. Ppl who look better than you do/ have a better shaped body?

2. Ppl in school/uni that have better marks than you do?

3. Ppl who drive a cooler car than you do?

4. Ppl who live in a nicer house than you do?

5. Ppl who are in love, while you are single?

couldn't care less what kind of car someone else drives, or where they live.

Actually I don't envy anyone judging by those questions.

1. I'm gay, and if I see a cute guy, why would I be envious of him? :hearts:

2. I suppose I had this envy in highschool because it was more competitive. I always wanted to be #1 in English and I wasn't. I was #3 out about of 130 students. (We had ranks because the way Australian highschools work we have assessments that lead up to the final exam.) Although I did get #1 on several essays. ;) At uni, it's different, too many people and you have other priorities like work.

3. I don't drive.

4. My ideal house would something like an English cottage or a well-built house in a middle of a farm. That's not really a priority for me now. I'm in Sydney, and I'm happy with the house I live in.

5. I'm single, but I'm not envious of couples. It's not a priority for me now, and I'm in no rush.

I couldn't care less how nice my house is compared to others, and I don't drive... so that cancels out two of the options ;) My marks would be top notch if I applied myself, so I don't envy others there... I assume I can do just as well as them, and only have myself to prove that to... I like being single, so that crosses off number 5 ;)

Which leaves number 1. I would be lying if I said I never envied people who look "better" than I do. But as long as it's healthy envy and not obsession, it's okay ;)

Sam, to your #1 answer: not even if the guy has a sixpack and you don't?

For me it's only #1 a yes. :o

No. I don't really want a six-pack. If I want it, I'll try and get it, there's no use been envious of others. ;)

1. There are lots of people who look better than me, but I don't mind because I look good enough and I'm happy with what I have.

2. I've always had the potential to do extremely well in school, so if someone gets higher grades, I know they are not necessarily smarter, just more diligent. Even without killing myself I manage just fine --- so I don't care to envy.

3. Sometimes. But then I know I will soon earn my own.

4. Not really.

5. Bastards.

None really I suppose if I did have to pick one it would be #1, I mean who doesn't get jealous of someone of their sex looking way better?

I couldn't care less about #5 love is yicky. I can't drive and I was never into cars, if it works I'll drive it don't care what it looks like. And I don't own my own house so I don't really care about that. I've always done well in school it's one of the things I pride myself on so I'm not jealous of anyone there.

1. Ppl who look better than you do/ have a better shaped body? No cos i am fit and know if i want some more muscle or whatever i can work at it...but i am contented as i am.

2. Ppl in school/uni that have better marks than you do? Not in Uni i just get decent results and cruise! :) im not competitive like i was at high school where i competed with the same people from years 7-12. I had a small year and topped four of six subjects but still came 2nd overall...

3. Ppl who drive a cooler car than you do? I dont care for material things.

4. Ppl who live in a nicer house than you do? Same as 3,

5. Ppl who are in love, while you are single? Yes, but i know i wont have the time for a proper relationship at this stage of my life having to work, go to uni and have a social life at the same time!

I used to envy people in relationships but it doesn't really bother me at this moment in my life.

As for people who are healthy, weathy and wise, well I always say two out of three ain't bad and anyway I like taking the bus to work - it's ecological ;)

2. Not really, sometimes, but I'm generally happy with what marks i get.
3. I dont care about cars at all, in fact i dont own a car.
4. I'd like a nicer house but i dont envy those who do.
5. Yes.

1. Ppl who look better than you do/ have a better shaped body?

-- Well, it would be nice to have a nice body (I think Beyoncé Knowles has the body from Heaven but after hearing about what she has for lunch... :eek: Noooo!! ;) ). No, I don't envy those who look better than me (there are too many people for that... :o ;) )/have a better shaped body at all. Maybe when I was younger and I used to read those magazines a lot and it was image image but really not any more... I think I'm better at this age :)

2. Ppl in school/uni that have better marks than you do?

-- I wish I had worked harder and really made more of myself but I don't feel envy towards anyone here at all - good for them!! I'm still not really the 'student' - I'll tell myself I'll be a mature mature MATURE student one day... *cough* :)

3. Ppl who drive a cooler car than you do?

-- I don't drive...

4. Ppl who live in a nicer house than you do?

-- No, not at all (You have to look after it? Like, clean it? *slump* ;) )

5. Ppl who are in love, while you are single?

-- I think it would be nice to be in love... But again, it is a question of waiting for the right person... I think that couples are nice and it would be nice to have that!! But if it is meant to happen then... *waves hand* :)

It has taken me a long time to like me and respect my own accomplishments, my body and my life. I don't envy others because I have finally reached a point of satisfaction with being me!

i think the only thing i am envious about in some of my friends is the amount of freedom and free time they have. i think it would be nice. other than that, i'm more than content.

It's normal that people get jealous, when it's about love. But what I want to know is how much do you envy in everyday life these situations:

1. Ppl who look better than you do/ have a better shaped body?

Yeah I do. I'm a size 14 and it would be ncie to be a size 10 or even a size 8 someday. :o

2. Ppl in school/uni that have better marks than you do?

Nah I didnt envy them cuz I know I coulda got good grades if I wasnt so effin lazy. :o

3. Ppl who drive a cooler car than you do?

A ride is a ride. We all gettin to same place so it don't matter what u drive to get there. :cool:

4. Ppl who live in a nicer house than you do?

It would be nice and yeah I'm envious but I'm happy and thankful that I aint homeless. :)

5. Ppl who are in love, while you are single?

Dayum that hurt boo! :mad: I don't hate on anybody that gotta man or woman but I hope my turn is comin up soon. My sista's freind tryin to get me to sign up with match.com but I don't know bout that y'all. :o

1. Ppl who look better than you do/ have a better shaped body?

Sometimes, but Im more in awe of them rather then jelous.

2. Ppl in school/uni that have better marks than you do?

No, I've wasent always the smartest kid when I was young, and was taught to do my best regradless of how others did. Now I have never failed an exam, and am always pleased with my results regardless of how others do.

3. Ppl who drive a cooler car than you do?

My car is cheep, but its great, and I love it, and if I had the money to buy a porche, I probably would still drive around in my Corse :lol:

4. Ppl who live in a nicer house than you do?

No, sometimes I wish I had a house like they do, but I never get jelous, cos only you can have the right house for you. Also I love watching CRIBS!

5. Ppl who are in love, while you are single?

Yes this is probably the only one I am guilty of! I hate it! I always feel such a gooseberry.

Well I'm only jelous of people who can watch lot of tennis live :fiery:

About look, maybe I could go to a gym to be fitter, but I'm too lazy ..... Marks, not at all, with passing exams I'm happy, don't have driving license, I like my home and I'm fine being single at the moment, i have bad moments when I'd love to have someone at my side though :o
