Dear Poll: Will You Try Anything Once?

When it comes to food, some of us are picky eaters while others are willing to try anything once. I often wonder if the same sentiment holds true in our personal lives as well. Though I’m a woman who believes you shouldn’t knock something until you’ve given it a go, I’m also not willing to try anything just for the sake of trying it. Quail eggs, skydiving, and dating extreme-sports enthusiasts really aren’t my things, and I don’t need to try them all to know that. Or maybe I’m actually being close minded. I guess I’m not a try-anything-once kind of gal but what about you? Will you try anything once?

I've gone hardcore white water rafting and I loved it. I think I'd bungee jump before I ever consider sky diving.

there are some limitations, but i'm usually game for something at least, once.

you know quail eggs tast the same as chicken eggs? smaller bird = smaller egg. you should give it a try Dear. Anyway I will try anything once unless I know I will not like it. For example: If DearSugar does not like chicken eggs she should not try quail eggs. : )

Groovy, I didn't know that about the [+]! :) Btw, about the daredevil stuff, I crewed with people on a hot air balloon and went up once, the views were beautiful and while crewing we got to go all over the place. We'd be there to help unfold the envelope and fill it, then follow on the ground, literally watching the balloon because it goes whichever way the wind blows. A balloon festival is really cool because of the size and the colors of the envelopes, and the sounds they make when being filled with hot air . I totally recommend going if they have one in your area. They usually only go up at dawn and dusk, when the wind is minimal.

off the wall comment here- i pretty new to this site and next to everyone's name there is a little (+) what does that mean?

i would have to say...i am picky about the things i will try. I always sway toward the safe side. Food- i will try lots of NORMAL stuff. But i won't risk my life for a thrill-too much to live for.

Yeah, sure-lol, you are absolutely not a hick allour...yeehaaaa! Let's ride us a bull, then have some sliced beer-battered bulls nuts at the Beer and Testicle Festival, lakeside! There isn't enough beer in the world...I'd rather eat horse poop or eggshells! (This is a very strange inside family joke). Oohoo man, I just got the major hebegeebees! However I'm kidding you, I do believe that some folks find them tasty. Just not this folk, nonononononono! ;)

well, you know what I meant! Anyway, you dont just pop a full testicle in your mouth, when I had them they were sliced, battered and deep fried, we have an anual Beer and Testicle Festival down at the lake...i sound like a total hick right now, but im not!

Allour, cows don't have testicles! lmao! I've heard they were quite good, but I would not, could not eat bulls balls. No thank you!!! ; )

oh i didn't even realize food was an option in all this too. then yeah i'm def a some things im game for other things i'll pass. i dont think i'd ever want to eat brains...or like..roaches.
lilwildone1202 lilwildone1202 9 years
ive already been bungee jumping, next i wanna sky dive. i also would do white water rafting, parasailing... but i dont think i'd repel down a mountain. i'm wayyy to much of a clutz to try that ;-)

I picked the third option. I love to try new things and I definitely want to go skydiving. But when it comes to food I stick with what I know I like. I am not an adventurous person in the food area!

No! Only when it comes to food! Otherwise, I have a lot of fears.

I love trying anything and everything! I went skydiving with my grandpa on his 70th birthday a few summers ago! Was a blast!

It depends for me. Food wise I am up for almost anything but sky diving really doesn't appeal to me. I have bungeed and I rock climb.

I'm not a 'try anything' kind of girl either, Dear. I have my things that I will and won't try, and I can categorize them pretty quickly.

I chose the 3rd option.... sometimes I'm a chicken, sometimes I'm super adventurous. It really depends on what it is! The thought of skydiving scares me, but if someone is good at convincing, I might give it a try. ;)

i'd definitely try anything once. but i choose the thrid option because of the food issue. there are definitely foods i will not try because i know i will not like them. i'm a picky eater. but as for doing something, i'll always try something once. or twice as bellaressa said. allourregrets, for me part of the thrill of trying something like skydiving is the rush i get FROM my fear of it :)
CoMMember13630786602261 CoMMember13630786602261 9 years
You know what is suprisingly good. cow testicles. I know, you all just probably puked in your mouths a little, but you should try it!
CoMMember13630786602261 CoMMember13630786602261 9 years
iamangie-duck is not very good. You arent missing much. ;) I am somewhat adventurous when it comes to food, Im not a picky eater at all, and finding something new that I like is just as thrilling as skydiving (for me anyway)
iamangiepooh iamangiepooh 9 years
I'm pretty open to trying new things/adventurous, but there are certain foods I just cannot get myself to try. To name a few: duck, frog legs, and eel. :/

I love heights once you get over the initial fear. I love to see senior citzens at the theme parks riding. I want to be just like them when I grow up.
