    Default What is fun-loving? Are you fun-loving?

    Well, I'm Brazillian and I'm not familiar with the expression "fun-loving". So what does it mean? Or what do you think it means?

    It seems to mean that a fun-loving person is a person who loves having fun. So is there someone who doesn't love having fun?

    Anyway, do you consider yourself a fun-loving person? (Whatever does it mean...)

    I think a fun-loving person just indulges in their love of having fun more often than not.

    Everyone loves having fun, but I guess having fun is not always appropriate. Perhaps fun-loving people's love of fun outweighs their sense of propriety?

    But then we gotta get into the nature of fun. Because some people find things fun that others would rather eat glass than do.

    Really, it's just a bad expression. Pretty ambiguous. I think it's generally synonymous with "lighthearted" and "carefree."

    It probably is context specific.

    I like fun and frivolity but I dont like drugs, drunkenness or the bad choices a lot of people I know chalk up to "fun".

    whether or not you credit psychoanalysis itself, the fact remains that we all must, to the greatest extent possible, understand one another's minds as our own; the very survival of humanity has always depended on it. - Open Culture

    you know? sometimes you sound positively victorian... I occasionally want to find you a woodcutting of the evils of the drinking class

    Work is the curse of the drinking classes.

    And coincidentally, I don't drink!

    Ideally, we'd work to enable us to do whatever the hell we want to do in our not-work lives. Also, ideally we'd make our work into something that doesn't feel like work.

    I'm personally bad at 'indulging' and lean more heavily on the 'gotta be responsible and hard-working' side

    Hang out with some SPs- they will show you fun-loving!
