OK, so I took the personal attraction quiz at match.com I took it second, because like most men I look at the body first and only after then do I consider if she’s got a ‘great personality’.
[quote]You’re smart, insightful, and successful in your career. You also have an insatiable curiosity about life and have a lot of non-work interests and things you enjoy doing. In fact, at times you’ve had so many things going on that romance has been pushed aside or “put on the back burner.” But you’re not someone who settles; you want it all! You have a vision for the future and always are searching to find love and a sense of “balance” in your life. Because you’re an independent guy and a little shy, making deep connections with other people can be a challenge. You’re not someone who “wears his heart on his sleeve” so even those closest to you don’t always know how you feel. Still, your masculine and dependable nature will draw people who’ll invest the time to get to know you.
Finding a loving relationship is a mission for you. You have clear goals and even a timeline in mind. Falling in love is an especially magical experience. You’re suddenly free from the rules and thinking that guide your life. You usually keep your feelings and life under control. But remember, the bigger the dam, the bigger the flood when it breaks!
You face two major challenges in finding the love of your life. First, because you’re shy, you feel like you have to be someone else or “wear a mask” to go out and meet new people. Then you feel like a distant observer and women don’t get to know the real you. Second, although having a vision of what you want can be helpful, the risk is that your high standards and your rush to find the perfect woman can get in the way of loving a real-life imperfect woman.[/quote]
Yup, I guess all that is more or less true, though I’m not that shy. But these personality quizzes are like astrology readings, they’re vaguely generalized enough that they can fit almost anybody.
