Round 2 had 62 participants! Amazing! I am having a lot of fun with these and I hope everyone else is! I love getting peoples replies!

A few things I want to add after doing this twice:

Make sure that you are BCC'ing your partners, rather than just putting everyones email address out there.

If possible, write a little bit with your answer, rather than just choosing A or B. For example:

Would you rather be poor and work at a job you love or be rich and work at a job you hate? - I would rather be rich at a job I hate. I would have a bad 40 hours a week, but an awesome time after!

I don't mean that you have to do it for all, but for at least a few would be nice :)

For the first swap, I did 5 partners. Last time, I went to 10 because there were 62 swappers (and I LOVE reading other peoples replies!). So, I am not sure how many to do. I don't want people to get annoyed if I pick to many. Is 10 a good number? If you have an opinion about it, let me know!

If you have any questions, PM me!

Here are my questions to you! :)

Would you rather, give up all alcohol for the next 30 days or have to butcher your own meat for the next 90 days?

Would you rather have a boring repetitive job that paid $90,000/year or an engaging job that you really enjoy but it pays $45,000/year?

Would you rather have $50,000 free and clear or $150,000 that is illegal?

Would you rather have the details of your romantic life be made into a hit sit-com or have every one you meet know your personal finances?

Would you rather have a photographic memory or gain an extra 40 IQ points?

Would you rather stay in a luxury hotel free of charge for one year have a chauffeur driven limousine free of charge for one year?

Would you rather have two tickets to this year's super bowl or two seasons tickets to the NFL team of your choice?

Would you rather have your first child when you are 19 years old or when you are 45 years old?

Would you rather have a photographic memory or be able to forget anything you wanted?

Would you rather be unable to see for one day or unable to use your phone for one month?

Would you rather be able to fly or turn invisible?

Would you rather go 30 days without refined sugar or 90 days without caffeine?

Would you rather be a highly paid professional athlete or serve as the president of a prestigious university?

Would you rather have a home with a great living room or a great back yard?

Would you rather spend one month living without using any money or spend 3 months in a wheelchair?

Would you rather have an ordinary home in an extraordinary location or an extraordinary home in an ordinary location?

Would you rather be able to lie without being caught or always be able to tell when someone is lying?

Would you rather be able to eat anything and any quantity of food with no negative health effects, or be refreshed and well rested after only three hours of sleep?

Would you rather have an extra hour every day or have $40 given to you free and clear every day?

The following question is listed twice: Would you rather have the details of your romantic life be made into a hit sit-com or have every one you meet know your personal finances?

I like these questions much better than those I saw on a previous swap, so I'm seriously considering joining this one.

Lorenmarie77 04/ 1/2013 #

@swan thanks! and hope you join, its fun!

mortuaary 04/ 2/2013 #

I think 10 is a good number, probably 'cause I like to read other people replies too! Well, I'll join anyway :*

pinkxpressions 04/ 5/2013 #

I had so much fun with Would You Rather #2 so I'm joining again! :)

Jbrooks351 04/ 5/2013 #

already filled mine out!!!

Amberraex0 04/ 8/2013 #

I do like reading people's answers, but I archive my swaps after I've rated everyone and have been rated by everyone. Having 10 people made that a little confusing lol

artpo0p 04/ 9/2013 #

I'm excited! when do i get partners?!

Lorenmarie77 04/ 9/2013 #

partners go out on April 13!

mortuaary 04/ 9/2013 #

Can't wait to swap! I'm having so much fun doing these swaps, good job @Lorenmarie77

David21 04/10/2013 #

I will join sounds really fun. A note to whoever i get partnered with bear with me as i have never done something like this before but i will give it 100% :D

junemoon 04/10/2013 #

I like reading a lot of other people's answers but I get annoyed when people don't rate or when a questionnaire goes into somebody's spam and they don't get it. I think 5 is a good number. Email seems easier than snail mail but it can be irritating.

skydancer 04/11/2013 #

Like Amberraex0, I archive after rating and being rated. Ten has made it confusing - I'm still waiting for 2 to rate. It took me awhile to determine who, though. I'd be more comfortable with 7, but 10 would be the most I'd want. I also appreciate some comments with selections as well. Makes it much more interesting. Thanks for doing this swap.

ladydy5 04/11/2013 #

There are several listed about the same idea. Rich or Poor, hated job or like the job, that kind of stuff.

Swan 04/13/2013 #

@skydancer I keep a little notebook with all swaps. I put the names of those I send to on one side, the names of those I receive from on the other side and the name of the swap in the middle. Then I can cross out those who I've received from and rated and those who have rated me. When all ratings are done and I have received all, I can cross out the whole swap. That way it's very easy to see who's still missing. Instead of a notebook, you could do it all online, of course.

YankeeUnicorn 04/13/2013 #

I just sent mine to my partners emails:) Be sure to check your junk/spam boxes if you don't see it:) Thanks so much! Happy Swapping!

David21 04/13/2013 #

I also sent mine. I will check my spam folder to look for straggling emails.

LittleMsGG 04/13/2013 #

I just sent mine too, and found one in the spam box.

Swan 04/14/2013 #

I sent mine, so if you haven't gotten it, please look in your spam folder first and then contact me if you can't find it there, either.

I received six so far, three of them landed in spam (including David21's).

David21 04/15/2013 #

Cheers @Swan

Please check your spam for mine then if you have me so no1 gets left out!


David21 04/15/2013 #

David21 04/18/2013 #

Good swap disapointed that i only received 5 ratings when i sent the email to 10 people but atleast i got 5 at the end of it

catchmedreaming 04/20/2013 #

Other then SatisHuman, I have not gotten any emails from the above list :( If your one of my parenters would you please re-send the message, maybe it was never sent? I dont want to send out bad raitings in case this was a real mistake *this is my first swap so I want to make sure its the best for EVERYONE :)!!!

SatisHuman 04/23/2013 #

Several of my partners' emails ended up in my spam folder and I have a feeling the same thing might have happened to mine. Please let me know if you haven't received my email and I will resend.
