    Yes in high school with another kid.

    I lost. Got BEAT. Guy was half again my size. I pretty much had it coming, though. I'd been a massive asshole to him for weeks.

    We became pretty good friends after. He was a good guy.

    I got roughed up in 7th grade at the bus stop by several high school girl bullies. I was outnumbered & didn't fight back. I never regretted anything more than that. After that day, I decided I would NEVER go home feeling ashamed like that again. I made a firm decision afterwards. I decided that even if I got my ass kicked and I was bloody & bruised that I would fight back with everything I had.

    The outcome is that I got into many, many fights after that & held my own beautifully. I enjoyed it more than I should have. The adrenaline rush was awesome. I got into trouble though and eventually had to find a different means to solve my troubles with others . It is easier just to punch someone in the face who is messing with you. However it is against the law

    True, minions who will punch someone in the face for you are a much better solution.

    I have recognized and accepted my need for minions. I'm glad you gave me a little bit of the external validation I was looking for there. They seem hard to acquire though because I've been trying to get a few for quite some time now

    Just sibling stuff, I have two brothers who are 2 and 4 years younger than me. We used to rough house. I was very verbally aggressive though, especially in elementary school. I spent a lot of time in detention.

    Yes, fighting was a rite of passage.

    And my father taught me to box before I went to boarding school, and so I was able to hold my own against the bullies.

    We used to settle our differences behind the chapel, right behind the holy of holies, the altar.

    It was the profane behind the sacred.

    never, but I've always kinda wanted to. It's hard to start one if nobody wants to fight you, though. I mean, I'm not just going to punch someone, even if they deserve it. It has to be a consensual fight or at least one that they start.

    Yes.

    With my brother and friends as a child-- you know, when heated words weren't enough. This involved hair pulling, pushing and wrestling mostly. Oh, haha I bit my friend once in a fight when I was like 5!

    None in middle school.

    Twice in high school, both times in the defense of an innocent party and with other females. One was a crazy jealous girlfriend who pushed a friend of mine into a locker-- mostly a tussle before she backed off. The other was a bully that I punched in the face after failing to verbally diffuse the situation. At the time I think I was more surprised than she was. I can usually stare people down effectively enough that it never comes to blows.

    I was in an abusive relationship in my late teens, the only time I've truly had to fight a guy. I don't know if that counts as "being in a fight" though, not good either way.

    Not many actually. I am sort of prone towards physical violence, but it's tended to revolve around me breaking things or just ragging on others rather than actual physical fighting.

    I imagine that if I hadn't been brainwashed into "just ignoring bullies" (and hence withdrawing) as a kid, I would have easily become irked enough to throw punches. But that's not the way things were.

    As a young adult I did have a physical alteration with my step-father, in which I hauled off and slugged him and he then tried to literally strangle me to death on the floor. Needless to say, I left home that day. He had that punch coming to him, though. My only regret is that I didn't do worse.
