Like one of the generic scenes you see in any action movie or anime where the guy saves his girlfriend but obviously IRL that wouldn't happen and you would both die.

So if you were put in a situation knowing that if you tried to help, you would both would most likely die would you still try? Or just let them die and live.(and this claims both lives not sacrificing yourself for theirs)

Yeah, I'd do so for anyone I love or care about. Not really a lot of pride in dying like that, knowing what you leave behind. But tbh I don't think I'd be able to refuse in a situation like that. As selfish as that is.

Yes I would. If i wasn't able to survive, whats the point of taking another person down with me? Just let them live..

If I knew there was *basically* no way for me to survive? I think you'll find the word "basically" changes everything ^^
Especially if you're the MC of anime with plenty of plot armor

I trust the Emperor. Because the Emperor protects!

But in our world we have no Emperor. So I'd run away and get another girlfriend. More beneficial for me since I am still alive then.

If I died it would be worse obviously.

But it depends on how you assess the situation. This is under the assumption that I'd think there is no chance to survive. In certain situations you might not think clearly/not have enough time to think ... getting yourself in danger while underestimating it or overestimating yourself.

I think it is not that uncommon that such situations occur.

If I truly loved my hypothetical boyfriend and I was sure that I could save him by giving up my life, yes, I would.

I am not sure, I would probably have to be in the situation to know. Wouldn't be an easy choice for me.

Yes, if I truly loved him with all my heart. If I'm sure he would survive from my sacrifice, then sure. Without hesitation. I know it might be selfish, knowing what you left behind, but I'd still do it.

I don't do something with the intention of dying for someone. I do it with the desire to live with them. Don't underestimate the will to live.

If he was someone so incredibly precious to me then yes. Dying together can be romantic in a totally tragic and morbid way.

Sincerely I'm too attached to my life, so I presume no, but now I can talk with my rationality because the situation is quietly, but in a dangerous situation it isn't so sure, because the instinct prevail on reason, so...I haven't idea

Well, if I really love the person, maybe I wouldn't really want to live without them? Hopeless romantic or simply stupid, I guess Haha

If I really loved the person, it means I'd like to live with them. So, probably... yeah. I would give my life to saving them since I know that there's no other way to survive and I was certain that they'd survive even after my sacrifice. There'd be no point in not saving your partner since you're gonna die anyways, so why not make the most of it? It's selfish both ways imo.

Sure I would to this also for close friends. My life is shit (not really shit, I just hate it being alive, such a time waste imo) imo, and I can give soemone the chance to continue his/her life.

My life right now means nothing to me. My goal right now is to repay my debts, settle my obligations, and eliminate all reasons I have left to live. Currently, I keep a sort of tally of my own worth versus the worth of the people around me, so I can't currently say whether I would or not, but if I decided at some point that they had more to offer society than me, I wouldn't hesitate.

When it comes to the people close to me, though I hate to admit it, I think I'd have to say no with regards to most of them, simply because their ambitions aren't strong enough to carry them to greatness, at least in my view. However, as I currently do not have a spouse, I cannot really say at this time if I would feel or behave any differently given that circumstance.

That said, given my condition, there are circumstances where I wouldn't question it whatsoever. For example, if I relapse into severe depression, there would be no doubt in my mind that dying for someone else would be preferable to living, with or without them. I spend a lot of my life in a daze anyway; I can outperform everyone I know intellectually, but I'm honestly not sure if I actually KNOW any of the things I know. Additionally, I am currently struggling with several physical conditions that make it basically impossible for me to work out or perform any sort of strenuous physical task, even to the point of standing outside in hot weather being impossible. So, in a situation where something like that would be necessary, again, I wouldn't hesitate to trade my life away.

That was my first thought when I saw the thread. If it saves someone else's life, I might as well go down and have my death not be completely meaningless.

Yea, I don't really want to live, but it's better than suicide. Also, I have obligations to my family and such. But I'd say it would be worth dying for another person, not because I care about this other person, but because it's better if the one who dies, is the one who has less to live for.

Heck no. Time will heal a broken, guilt and regret ridden heart and my life is more precious to me more than anything. If I decide to end my life, it will be for me and no one else.

In the end, only my life is real to me. And, no matter how painful it is, I still prefer it over not existing. And also, the thought that my loved ones will eventually find someone else and sooner or later I will be nothing but hazy locked up memories in the minds of people who no longer care about me because there's nothing left of me to care about is too much to bear.

That was uncalled for.

But if valuing my own life above anything makes me a "piece of shit", then I'm willing to be a "Piece of shit".

I don't think I'll love my future bf the same way or more than I love my family though, so no.

I wouldn't be able to feel any feelings except for fear in such a moment. My instincts would tell me to run for my life, and that's what I'd do. I'd only start to feel regret, worry and sorrow after escaping.

Lol hell no. I'm the main character of my own life and I won't let me story end so quickly. Honestly I feel like I might do it for a spur of the moment type thing, but thinking about it rationally it doesn't make sense. You can get another girlfriend, but you can't get another life.

Fuck no. They should be able to protect themselves. If I'm able to protect them by dying, they should be able to survive without me dying by not being stupid.
