How often do you swear: Not often, but sometimes - (sometimes its every other day, sometimes its daily :P)
What is the reason you swear: To fit in (for jokes between friends) or when I'm genuinely annoyed
How often do you swear in the company of the opposite sex: I feel like I live in an area where swearing is very common so I swear equally around males and females because nobody really takes offence
Opinion of swearing: It's great stress relief, it can be fun and its becoming more and more important in modern language

How often do you swear? Daily.
What is the reason for you to swear? Anger, humour, as an intensifier.
How often do you swear in the company of opposite /same sex? I make no distinction based on gender, as far as I'm aware.
Do many of your female or male swear? Can you grammar better, please?
What's your opinion in swearing in general? It's ****ing fantastic. It shouldn't necessarily be considered a taboo, either.

How often do you swear? Multiple times an hour
What is the reason for you to swear? Shocked, annoyed, laughing at something funny. It's become a habit so much so that I don't really rate it different to any other word
How often do you swear in the company of opposite/same sex? I probably swear slightly less in front of other girls, but not by that much
Do many of your female or male swear? I think I swear more than most my mates, majority of them swear in moderation and usually for emphasis
What's your opinion in swearing in general? It's just a word, shouldn't be seen as that big a deal - especially if just used off handedly or around kids (although they're probably going to learn it one day)
What category do you put yourself into when swearing? The pink one

How often do you swear? Not a lot. Here and then. Usually under my breath most days only occasionally in public. Try not to swear in front of my family unless im angry. ( I only said the word b*tch in front of them. Don't think I said any others to them)

Reason: Not really any reason. I won't just start swearing for no reason. If the word comes up then I will usually say it. Say it more when im playing online games. Anger I guess, if im quoting something/ someone or like above emphasis.

How often do you swear in the company of opposite/ same sex? Doesn't really matter on the sex. I would say theres no difference. And occasionally depends on the situation

Do many of your female or male swear? I guess. Not a lot. Just occasionally. Depends who it is though. Some swear more then others. A few rarely swears. Most of the time it is just for amusement nothing serious.

Opinion- I dont mind. Although I don't like it when people swear in front of little kids or swear to excessively (Eg: Franklin from GTA, you dont need to swear every sentence.) and tries to do it as an insult or swears a lot to seem "cool" or "hard." I know not many people swears a lot for this reason but theres a few.

Category using the image- Can't see the image, I will edit it if I can.

How often do you swear? Rarely
What is the reason for you to swear? Making myself seem like I really care about an issue
How often do you swear in the company of opposite /same sex? Equally as often for both
Do many of your female or male swear? Most only rarely, in the same situations as I do. Most less than me.
What's your opinion in swearing in general? There's nothing intrinsically wrong with it, but it looses its desired effect if somebody swears too often. If used inappropriately it makes them look like an uncultured moron.

How often do you swear? Many times a day.

What is the reason for you to swear? Now, just because it's natural to do so, as if it's a normal part of my vocabulary. Before swearing regularly, it would usually be done in anger/annoyance at something.

How often do you swear in the company of opposite /same sex? Same amount for both opposite and same sex.

Do many of your female or male swear? Majority do swear occasionally, one hates it!

What's your opinion in swearing in general? Swear words are words, if you don't like it, then don't swear, otherwise, don't ****ing complain when I swear!

How often do you swear? Daily I'd say. Probably a few times a day.
What is the reason for you to swear? Usually for emphasis, whether that is emphasis of my anger or frustration, or how "effing" amazing something is. Basically it's to exaggerate my point.
How often do you swear in the company of opposite /same sex? The same as anyone else really.
Do many of your female or male swear? I assume you mean female/male friends, and yes they do.
What's your opinion in swearing in general? I think it's fine. It's only a word, and if you're not using it to offend someone, and just as an expression or something to help you to express your current feelings,, I honestly don't mind. The only time I have a problem with it is if someone is using it as a tool to offend or insult someone. But if someone swears because they've stubbed their toe, then I'm like "whatever"
