Wanna Know Wednesday: The Future……Up 4 Discussion…..

From JSin.….

How many of you have seen the TV show FlashFoward?  I saw it for the first time not too long ago.  The focus and premise of the show is quite interesting.  After an inexplicable event occurs everyone in the world gets a glimpse of their future.

After watching a few episodes of the show it got me thinking: Would I want to get a glimpse of my future?  If so, how far into the future?  And why would I want to know at all?

All at once I had a ton of questions and very few answers.  Being the inquisitive person that I am I couldn’t resist asking others what they would want to do and why?

Some people I asked said they wouldn’t want a glimpse at their future.  Others were excited about seeing their future.  Me personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing a glimpse of my future.  It’d be interesting to see what types of twists and turns my life would take.

Today I pose the same question to you.  Feel free to submit your answer in the poll below and further explain your choice in a comment.

Thanks and have a very blessed day!

Wanna Known Wednesday: Men, Women & Video Games……For Up 4 Discussion….

From JSin.….


It’s Wednesday; and as usual we have a great discussion for you.  The discussion this week is focused on three things: Men, Women & Video Games.

Video Games

It’s no secret that video games have become a large form of entertainment in the U.S.  In 2009 alone video game sales accounted for more that $25 BILLION!  With the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 & Wii on the market gamers have a lot of variety when it comes down to finding a video game or system that they enjoy most.  For those of you who play video games you will most likely be aware of how popular multiplayer and co-op games have become.  In today’s society, the most fun is to be had by playing video games with others.  Whether they be friends, family, strangers or even a spouse or partner.


Face it, second to sports (and women, of course, ;) ) men love their video games.  There is so much fun to be had sitting in front of that big screen TV with a controller in hand.  One minute he can be shooting hoops, then racing his dream car or simply blowing the competition away with the biggest gun he can get his player’s hands on.  Whatever he desires to do there is likely to be a game on the market that will allow him to do it.  As fun as video games may be not every man plays or even enjoys them, but there is a large number of men who do.


When it comes to women and video games they typically fit into one of three categories:

  1. They HATE video games
  2. They LOVE video games; or
  3. They don’t hate or love video games but they do enjoy playing that one game they really like every now and then

Sounds simple, right?

Wanna Know Wednesday: Choices…..From Up 4 Discussion…..

From JSin.….

Hey everyone,

First I would like to apologize for neglecting my readers this past week.  There’s no excuse.

There will be new discussions being posted at the end of this week and next week.  Also, I will be explaining the details of the U4D Giveawaythat will begin next week.

As you know today is Wednesday and we have a really interestingWanna Know Wednesday question for you.  On the surface the question may seem simple and even easy to answer, but it shouldn’t be taken too lightly.  The question is all about choices…and in this case choices that are permanent and life altering.  Of course the question is hypothetical, but it should spark up a thought provoking discussion and allow you to assess how important love and sex are to you.

Please answer the poll question below and, if you like, explain the reasoning behind your answer in the comments.  Enjoy!

More and a poll……

Wanna Know Wednesday: Privacy…Invasion or Privilege?…from Up 4 Discussion…..

From JSin…….

Hey readers!

It’s Wednesday and we have a great Wanna Know Wednesdaydiscussion for you this week.

Have you ever been in a relationship and had your partner ask you if they could look through your phone?…or check your texts?..or your e-mails?…or what about have the password to your facebook account?

Or better yet have you ever caught a partner going through or attempting to go through your phone or computer?

If you answered yes to any of those questions this discussion is perfect for you to share your experiences!

If you hadn’t guessed already, this week we would like to discuss PRIVACY in a relationship.  Is it a privilege to be in a relationship where you have privacy and don’t have to worry about your partner going through your stuff unless you give them permission to?  Or is it aninvasion of privacy when your partner goes through your stuff, with or without permission?

Personally, I believe that if my partner has a desire to go through my phone or computer it is because they don’t fully trust me.  More likely than not I don’t have anything to hide so I wouldn’t mind letting her check my phone all she wants.  She isn’t going to find anything……

More……....and a video and polls…..

Wanna Know Wednesday: Sacrifice…from Up 4 Discussion…..

From JSin….


This Wednesday we would like to focus on sacrifice.  In particular, we are interesting in knowing what characteristics would you be willing to sacrifice in a life-long partner.  You may be inclined to pick your answer quickly, but we would caution against that.  Give it some thought before selecting your answer.  If you prefer, answer these questions as well to assist you in selecting your answer:

Why am I willing to sacrifice that characteristic?

Why do I value other characteristics more than the characteristic I’m willing to sacrifice?

Would I expect or want my life-long partner to sacrifice the same characteristic?

Which characteristic would I never be willing to sacrifice?

After you’ve given it some thought feel free to select your answer and cast it in the poll below.  We hope that you enjoy this topic and we also hope that it allows you to learn something about yourself in the process.

By the way, thank you Mr. TramueL for providing this week’s Wanna Know Wednesday topic…….

There’s More……..

Wanna Know Wednesday 3.3.10……. from Up 4 Discussion……

From JSin…..

Hey everyone it’s Wednesday!

This week we’re going to be doing something a little different. Today’s Wanna Know Wednesday is going to actually lead into an upcoming discussion that will be up no later than Friday.

The topic is focused on the infamous Friends with Benefits!!!

If I had to guess, I would say that most of you are aware of what Friends with Benefits are. If you are not familiar with the term then you will definitely want to stop back by later this week to read the discussion on the subject. The discussion will explain the term and it should also enlighten you.

Before we jump right into the poll question I would just like to ask you to spread the word about Up 4 Discussion. If you enjoy the posts here on the blog tell your friends, family & e-buddies about Up4Dsn. It would be great if we could reach more people and have them be a part of our discussions as well. This isn’t a plea, just a suggestion.

Thank you in advance for stopping by & for spreading the word about Up 4 Discussion!

Wanna Know Wednesday 2.17.10….from Up 4 Discussion…..

From JSIn…..

It’s Wanna Know Wednesday!

This week we are going to do things a little bit differently.  Instead of posting a poll, we will be relying heavily on reader participation this week.  In essence, this weeks Wanna Know Wednesday is going to be very engaging and entertaining (which is what we desire) or it’s going to lack substance due to a lack of reader participation.

Now we understand that everyone who stops by isn’t going to comment and honestly that’s fine.  But for the sake of making this new style a success if you are willing, please comment and share with us.

With that out of the way lets turn our focus towards today’s topic.  This week we wanna know all about the WORST date(s) you have ever been on.

It could be traditional dates, blind dates, double dates…whatever!  If you have a crazy, traumatic or entertaining date experience please share!

Thank YOU in advance for you participation!
