The 32-type Dating Test

Daphne. "He said you could never ma a commitment to anyone, and you'd just wind up hurting me."
George: "He said that? What a nerve! How dare he say something like that!"
Daphne: "Is it true?"
George: "Of course not... I mean sure, there may have been one or two occasions in the past, when I may have reacted in an impulsive or somewhat immature manner. But those days are well behind me."

Got this little quiz from Circe.

The False Messiah
Deliberate Brutal Love Master (DBLMm)

People believe in you, and then you send them to hell. Behold, the False Messiah.

You're usually a very kind person, and conscientious, too. Socially, you're a leader, and your friends and associates look up to you. You're probably tall. In intimate relationships, you're a capable, responsive, and experienced lover. Outside the box, however, you run into trouble.

Your exact opposite:
The Pool Boy

Random Gentle Sex Dreamer
Girls fall hard for you, but you're much more ambivalent about them. The beginnings of your relationships are unusually intense, making it all the rougher on her when they end. At first, using all your accumulated tricks of the trade, you ladle on the affection. But once she's all covered in soup, you withhold the true napkins of commitment. What's that all about? We should've called you the False Waiter.

You're looking for Love. But history tells us you struggle to settle down and accept it. There's a deep streak of carnality within you. And while you'll never be a predator, you'll always fight the urge to roam free. You like to plan things out, so plan this: find someone who can indulge your selfish side, has a healthy sexual appetite, and doesn't mind uncertainty.

FLEE: The Sonnet, The Window Shopper

Geez, that's the last time I'm completely honest on some stupid love quiz. Although stilettos are hot.

One of my favorite questions was #26: Do you ever start a relationship already knowing you want out?

Who would ever do something like that....... what..... What's everyone looking at?

"Moons and Junes and ferris wheels. The dizzy dancing way you feel. As every fairy tale comes real. I've looked at love that way..."


  1. Hey False Messiah, or should I say the essence of Bone?

    Think that the song lyrics were more telling

    I'm debating posting my results :-)

  2. Yikes! That was rather rough though I am intrigued of the quiz. I just might take it. I"ve had mixed results with quizzes...some are right on and others are way off course. I sometimes wonder how these quizzes are created and how they can figure out the personality types that go with the answers.

  3. Wow, going for truth today eh J-Dizzle? ;-)
    Having never dated you, and only knowing you as a friend who hasn't had soup ladled on her, I guess I'll have to remain neutral. However, I did hear on the radio the other day that if a man isn't married by the time he's 27, there's seriously something wrong with him. Some study at some big college. I didn't pay attention to for thought, for both of us!

  4. Am still debating posting my results. Don't know if I'm ready for the world to know that I'm a slut but one that is respected in the morning--oh I just said it

    I did post-grad social science research. Studies and their results are almost always skewered

    When I was 21 the average age of women who got married was 21--now it's 27 according to most studies. Since women usually marry men their age or older, many men won't get married until well into their 30's

    Just something to think about :-)

  5. Definitely Skewed11/25/2006 11:55:00 AM

    Pia - as always - is right.
    All results are skewed. You can never eliminate all bias because there will always be a human element involved.

    And those quizes are total BS. Even if you were completely honest answering those questions today - tomorrow your answers could be completely different, dependent on your mood, your experiences that day, etc.

    Don't put too much store into what it said; but if some of it rings true, and you don't like it, work to change it.

    :) Good Luck!

  6. Yeah,I'm afraid of taking this test and seeing what dark nature it reveals about me. And I agree with you on stilettos. A peach in stilettos sounds like a sure fired way for me to get into trouble. Thanks for being honest and revealing your inner nature Bone! :)

  7. Palseeee's back, yo11/26/2006 06:33:00 PM

    I'm a Window Shopper. Why does this not surprise me. I think I just died a little inside while doing that. And by 'a little' I mean a whole fucking lot.

  8. i have done that. i'm such an idiot. i didn't even need to take the quize (but of course i will because i am such a sucker for quizzes).

  9. Pia: Yes, oh Slut Who Is Respected In The Morning, you may refer to me as False Messiah, although I prefer Looking For Love :)

    I think last I heard, the average age for males who were marrying for the first time was 28.

    Chickadee: Well, obviously, these quizzes are just for fun. They can be way off sometimes, and other times frighteningly accurate.

    Arlene: Gee, thanks. Seems like the average age keeps climbing a little higher each year. Wonder why.

    Skewed: Seems like I get a comment on every post now that says "Pia is right" or "I agree with Pia." :)

    Sage: Stilettos! Hear, hear!

    Palseeee: Window shopper? What exactly does that mean?

    Ms. Sizzle: It's good to have a nice almost anonymous place we can all own up to such things :)

    Let me know your quiz results.

  10. Nice. :) Yeah, I was supposed to stay away from guys like you...

  11. Dang that was a long quiz! :)

    Here are my results...

    The Maid of Honor
    Deliberate Gentle Love Master (DGLMf)

    Appreciated for your kindness and envied for all your experience, you are The Maid of Honor.

    Charismatic, affectionate, and terrific in relationships, you are what many guys would call a "perfect catch"--and you probably have many admirers, each wishing to capture your long-term love. You're careful, extra careful, because the last thing you want is to hurt anyone. Especially some poor boy whose only crime was liking you.

    Your exact opposite:

    Random Brutal Sex Dreamer
    We've deduced you're fully capable of a dirty fling, but you do feel that post-coital attachment after hooking up. So, conscientious person that you are, you do your best to reserve physical affection for those you you can respect yourself.

    Your biggest negative is the byproduct of your careful nature: indecision. You're just as slow rejecting someone as you are accepting them.

    ALWAYS AVOID: The False Messiah, The 5-Night Stand, The Vapor Trail, The Bachelor

    CONSIDER: The Gentleman, someone just like you.

    So I am to avoid you, my dear! :)

  12. The Sonnet
    Deliberate Gentle Love Dreamer (DGLDf)

    Romantic, hopeful, and composed. You are the Sonnet. Get it? Composed?

    Sonnets want Love and have high ideals about it. They're conscientious people, caring & careful. You yourself have deep convictions, and you devote a lot of thought to romance and what it should be. This will frighten away most potential mates, but that's okay, because you're very choosy with your affections anyway. You'd absolutely refuse to date someone dumber than you, for instance.

    Your exact opposite:
    Genghis Khunt

    Random Brutal Sex Master

    Lovers who share your idealized perspective, or who are at least willing to totally throw themselves into a relationship, will be very, very happy with you. And you with them. You're already selfless and compassionate, and with the right partner, there's no doubt you can be sensual, even adventurously so.

    You probably have lots of female friends, and they have a special soft spot for you. Babies do, too, at the tippy-top of their baby skulls.

    ALWAYS AVOID: The 5-Night Stand, The False Messiah, The Hornivore, The Last Man on Earth

    CONSIDER: The Loverboy

    Well, Bone, at least we got that out of the way now, before we entered into a passionate love affair that would just end badly. ;)

  13. Sorry I've been away. I'll take the quiz and let you know. I think I may enter WPP as Estelle Costanza. Don't be surprised.

  14. I love quizzes! And especially when I have a holiday hangover. Interesting...

    The Wild Rose (funny, I have a Rose tattoo, which is also a play by Tennessee Williams)

    Random Brutal Love Dreamer (RBLDf)

    Colorful, but unpicked. You are The Wild Rose.

    Prone to bouts of cynicism, sarcasm, and thorns, you excite a certain kind of man. Hoping to gather you up, he flirts and winks and asks you out, ultimately professing his love. Then you make him bleed. Why? Because you're the rare, independent, self-sufficient kind of woman who does want love, but not from a weakling.

    You don't seem to take yourself too seriously, and that's refreshing. You aren't uptight; you don't over-plan. Romance-wise, sex isn't a top priority--a true relationship would be preferable. For your age, you haven't had a lot of bonafide love experience, though, and this kind of gets to the core of the issue. You're very selective.

    The problem is them, not you, right? You have lofty standards that few measure up to. You're out there all right, but not to be picked up by just anyone.

    "You're never truly single as long as you have yourself."

    ALWAYS AVOID: The Bachelor

    CONSIDER: The Vapor Trail.

  15. The Gentleman
    Deliberate Gentle Love Master (DGLMm)

    Steady & mature. You are The Gentleman.

    For anyone looking for an even-keeled, considerate lover, you're their man. You're sophisticated. You know what you want both in a relationship and outside of it. You have a substantial romantic side, and you're experienced enough sexually to handle yourself in that arena, too. Your future relationships will be long-lasting; you're classic "marrying material," a prize in the eyes of many.

    It's possible that behind it all, you're a bit of a male slut. Your best friends know that in relationships you're fundamentally sex-driven. You're a safe, reliable guy, who does get laid. In a lot of ways, you're like a well-worn, comfortable pair of socks. Did you ever jack off into one of those? All the time.

    Your exact opposite:
    The Last Man on Earth

    Random Brutal Sex Dreamer
    Your ideal mate is NOT a nut-job. She is giving and loving, like you, but also experienced. Avoid the The Battleaxe at all fucking costs.

    CONSIDER: The Maid of Honor, someone just like you.

  16. Ok, I'm official now, so you have to come visit :-)

  17. Chica: OK, as long as you don't stay away from my blog. I'm really not that bad! Honest :)

    Shayna: Yes, that was quite a long quiz, Perfect Catch. I vote we all begin using our dating quiz names around here.

    Carmen: Yeah, but it would have been fun for awhile. Genghis Khunt? lol

    Estelle: Good to hear from you again. Hope all is well wherever you've been transplanted to.

    Tenacious T: Ooo, you make him bleed. Cruel! ;-) I'm just glad someone other than me got a non-perfect result.

    Big Gentleman: Hey, don't steal all my readers now :)

    Just B: You change blogs more than I change... eh, nevermind.

  18. No Comment. :-P

  19. Seeing as how I've been married "forever" I won't bother with taking the quiz. But I don't think that they really tell you anything about who you are anyway. And even if there is a tiny bit of truth in that, you can always change.

    I'm taking a poll on my blog about birthdays.

  20. Yes I've regifted, but I've never degifted! Darly says she can see why she's your EX-girlfriend. LOL!

    I've never gotten caught at regifting either. Unless they read my blog. hee hee

    Thanks for answering the birthday poll.

  21. Tiffany: A comment to say "no comment." That's interesting.

    Renee: Thanks. I think that's a healthy view of the entire thing.

    I don't think I've ever re-gifted.
