... Sink or sail in love?

We've all had our ups and downs when it comes to love. Let's see how you'd tackle these situations. Would you rather sink or sail?
1. A Valentine's Day banquet is being hosted at your school as a part of the extra-curricular activities schedule. Failure to attend will result in a three-day suspension, unless there is an immediate emergency. You have been chosen to go with a boy with extreme obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) - he has to meticulously clean everywhere he goes and everything he sees. Would you rather go with him, despite his OCD, or take the three-day suspension?
Go to the banquet - 30%
Take the three-day suspension - 70%
K. Henningham, 18: "I can't afford to mess up my transcript because of my pride. If that boy wants to clean the walls, let him!"
R. Campbell, 17: "Knowing me, I can't walk into that banquet with someone who is gonna clean everything I walk on. It's annoying."
2. Every day you get into an argument with the school's bully. He's never had anything good to say to you from you've started the school, and you've already cast him off your list of friends. Suddenly, the day before Valentine's Day, he pulls at you in the middle of school, or during lunch, and, with tears in his eyes, confesses his love for you. Would you rather go with him or embarrass him in front of everyone.
Accept - 20%
Embarrass him - 80%
S. CLarke, 17: "I ain't letting him be my valentine! No way is that gonna happen after treating me rudely."
D. White, 16: "I'm soft-hearted and I don't like embarrassing people or myself. Therefore, I would probably accept him and get it over with."
3. You had been with a guy right throughout high school. Suddenly, in your last year, he begins to make plans to get married to you quickly. This desire of his has driven him over the edge and he prepares a grand dinner with his parents on Valentine's Day and proposes to you that very night. Would you rather decline his proposal, saying that you are not ready, or accept it as it will make him happy.
Decline - 60%
Accept - 40%
T. Chambers, 19: "No way would I agree to get married so early. I can't see myself doing such."
M. Wade, 18: "If we're going to be together either way, what's the point of denying it?"
