Tagged, again

I don't like personal tags much, but have been tagged by a friend and have not been able to shake off blogging ennui, so here goes. I'm not tagging anyone else, but please feel free to take the tag forward if you want it.

The Rules: People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by them. People who have been tagged must tag at least 6 people to do this quiz and those who are tagged cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by and cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by. Get it? Now spread the love.

If your lover betrayed you, what will your reaction be?
No idea. Probably nothing but a whole bunch of tears.

If you could have a dream come true, what would it be?
Peaceful surroundings, plenty (of food and water and time, if nothing else), pen-paper, laptop, a room of my own, and a positively lovely, very liberal man who doesn't complain and thinks that this is his dream come true, too.

What would do with a billion dollars?
Invest. Buy a house, set some aside to take care of food bills for the rest of my life. Build my mother a room in our ancestral village. Maybe even try a little organic farming. Put the rest into scholarships for students and artists.

Will you fall in love with your best friend?
Best friends are usually women, so, I seriously doubt it. If said best friend is a man, and isn't already attached, will tell him. Even if it means risking the friendship.

Which is more blessed: loving someone or being loved by someone?
Being loved is blessed. Loving can be sheer hell.

How long do you intend to wait for someone you love?
Depends on whether he's asking you to wait, wants you to wait. And what exactly I'm waiting for.

If the person you secretly like is attached, what will you do?
Nothing. Try and stay in touch, be a friend. Sort of.

If you could root for one social cause, what would it be?
RTI. The right to information is something basic which can be used to tackle a lot of other ills.

What takes you down the fastest?
Kindness. Humour. Confidence. (Oh, alright, good looks too).

Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?
Don't see more than a month ahead. Try not to.

What’s your fear?
Stopping to believe in anything, not even myself or my own work.

What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
Bluesprite is steady, emotionally honest, insightful and somebody I can relate to very easily.

Would you rather be single and rich or married and poor?
Married, poor and in love with someone who loved me, preferably, but if love is not an option, then single and rich.

If you fall in love with two people simultaneously who will you pick?
Not likely. But if it does, then whoever is less aggressive, more committed and has fewer stereotypical expectations from me as a woman.

Would you give all in a relationship?

Would you forgive and forget someone no matter how horrible a thing he has done?
I very rarely forget.

Do you prefer being single or in a relationship?
Prefer being single to being in a bad relationship or one that I don't really want. Relationships are too much hard work so they better be worth the trouble.
