Do you swear alot in everyday life?

Asked by Frenchfry (7569points) August 28th, 2010

I don’t swear all that often . I was told not to growing up. Women do not swear. I have a kid helps curbed it as well. I swear when I mad or every so often to show disgust ,or to prove a point.. Who swears more men or women? Do you find it cool or attractive?

It depends on my surroundings and the company I’m with. At work? No. Visiting Mom and Dad? No. At a bar with friends? Sure. Fuck yeah.

@papayalily hahaha ! You crack me up. I guess so.

DominicX's avatar

Somewhat. I swear a lot around my brother and my closest friends, who reciprocate it quite a bit. :)

Fuck no
Then again I really don’t talk a lot IRL.

I used to but realized it made me sound stupid. I stopped. Also I almost swore in front of my mom.

Vortico's avatar

@Michael_Huntington I’m with you on the no talking thing. I probably swear the same as anyone else, but 25% of the words I say are profanity.

allllll the time

rebbel's avatar

Apparently i do quite much so.
Last winter when my girlfriend was here with me, in Holland, she was trying to learn my language.
You know, the basic things “Shall i massage your feet now, or after the match has finished?” “May i cook your favorite meal for you tonight?”, but soon i heard her giving examples of her new learned words to my parents that made me blush.

I try not to do it that often. For me, it seems to be related to how I’m feeling. When I’m angry or anxious, I seem to do it more often.

Piper's avatar

No. :]

When I do, it’s only if I’m really mad about something and then people at school will say “oh my God, Piper swore!” because it’s so uncommon. lol

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

I have a terrible potty mouth. You’d be shocked.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

I used to swear horribly but have made a conscious effort to curtail myself in the past few years. A man I was once in love with told mutual acquaintances that aside from my embarassing swearing then I was as close to the woman of his dreams as he’d met but couldn’t bring himself to introduce me to his family. That hurt deeply.

whothei0's avatar

not much but i have notice i swear more and more easy and often at this rate of progression when im 40 every other word will be a swear. (funny story i knew some one that every other word was a swear)

daytonamisticrip's avatar

@whothei0 Hey I think we know the same person. He can’t say a whole sentence without swearing.

daytonamisticrip's avatar

Don’t tell me his name is Jimmy. lol

jerv's avatar

I don’t censor myself much, and many of the swears I learned as a kid were those I picked up from my mother while driving, like “needle-dicked bug-fucker”. (She doesn’t swear much except when she is behind the wheel. Get her on the road though….)

Austinlad's avatar

I don’t swear much anymore—my company frowns on it—but I’ve been know to drop the F-bomb from time to time. My dad swore all the time. His favorite was—and apologies to my Christian friends on Fluther—Jeeeesus H. Christ!

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

Not at all.
Edit: except in one joke.

janbb's avatar

More that I used to of late.

shpadoinkle_sue's avatar

It comes out as a reactionary response to being startled. I have conditioned myself to say Judas Preist instead of Jesus Christ. You never know what kind of people you’re around in public and I wanted to be respectful.

LuckyGuy's avatar

Nope. I haven’t found the need.

AmWiser's avatar

Hell, Damn, Shit…I don’t really call dem cuss words. F&%#!, I’ve heard much, much worse.

CMaz's avatar

Damn fuck’in skippy.

not really

Tuesdays_Child's avatar

Nope, used to swear often and someone bet me that i couldn’t go a week without uttering a swear word, that was almost seven years ago. I hate to lose a bet.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

I’m a professional ;)

Facade's avatar

I swear all the time. I don’t say “bitch” often because I feel it’s derogatory. I also never say G**damn for obvious reasons. I ask those in my proximity not to say it either.

AmWiser's avatar

@Facade yes the “b” word is derogatory. I have a close group of girlfriends and we sometimes call ourselves the bitches
B beautiful
I intelligent
T thoughtful
C caring
H honest…..women (but its just between us).

Blackberry's avatar

Not really, and I don’t find it attractive when someone I am potentially attracted to does it excessively, it seems trashy. I say “What the fuck?!” When I’m joking around because it’s a popular meme that stuck with me.

cookieman's avatar

I agree with @py_sue – I generally only swear when startled or as a reaction to something unexpected.

Difference being I’ll exclaim things like, “Jesus Mother-Fucking Christ!”, “Mutha Fucker!”, “Fuck Me!” or “What the Fucking Hell?!”

rooeytoo's avatar

I like to save swearing for special occasions, when I am really really upset and want to make a statement, then the f word is my favorite. But as I have said before, it is being used so often and by so many from 3 years old and on that it has lost much of its impact. Rather sad.

Deja_vu's avatar

I seldom use profanity. Only when it’s completely unappropriate ;)

Cruiser's avatar

I taught @lucillelucillelucille everything she knows! ;)

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Cruiser-Fank you very much! XD

ZEPHYRA's avatar

Yes, it’s in-built, it comes out all the time!!!!!!!!!

Aster's avatar

Only if I’m upset . Never in public and never, ever until I was 42!
I intend to work on it. (-;

NaturallyMe's avatar

No i don’t. I’ve never really used real swearing as part of my everyday talking, not even during fights or anything like that. It’s just the way i grew up, and now it’s personal choice, i find nothing attractive about constant unnecessary and over-the-board swearing all the time. I’ll tolerate the occasional swearing during stressed times or whatever, but not part of everyday casual talking. I can be more liberal with my swearing on online forums though.

serafina's avatar

I rarely swear, but do on occasions let it slip if under pressure emotionally.

bippee's avatar

I’m not called potty mouthed patti for nothin! So yeah, I do curse a lot. I don’t think it’s cool. It is just the way I express myself. I tend to use fuck as more of an adjective, as in “That’s so fucking annoying.” It is a bad habit. I try not to do it in front of my daughter, but it happens.

Whitsoxdude's avatar

I swear around certain friends, but only if I’m sure nobody but them will hear, and even then I like to think my swearing is mild. The following are words that I will NEVER say and strongly discourage my friends from using:
The b word
the f word
any racial slurs
any offensive word for a homosexual
anything taking God’s name in vain.. I’m religious, gimmie a break!

Other than that, I’m pretty much clean with my speech. Thank you for asking this question though, It reminded me I need to cut back on calling adults I hardly know “asshole” behind their back.
