I am a Sonnet

I'll admit it - I'm on OKCupid. I heard from one of my twitter friends that it's not bad. Plus, it's free, and eHarmony hasn't been doing me any favors lately. What I love about OKCupid, though, are all of the random tests and quizzes you can take. For instance, the Dating Persona quiz. I wanted to know what sort of a dating personality the quiz thought I had. I'll tell you, I am completely honest when I take these things. To a fault. (I also occasionally read my horoscope, though I don't take my Gemini status as seriously as some Scorpios I know, who ascribe their every relationship move and personality quirk to their star-sign. Ahem.)

You can take the test here, if you like. Definitely check out my results below - don't I sound like a lovely and date-able Poetess?. I was very surprised to find I'm a sonnet, especially since I answered all of the dirty questions honestly *grin* I was not surprised to find that I was told to always avoid The 5-Night Stand (DBSM), The False Messiah (DBLM), The Hornivore (RBSM), and The Last Man on Earth (RBSD), but I thought it was interesting that my direct opposite (according to the test) is Genghis Khunt, Random Brutal Sex Master. Not sure that's a title I'd covet anyway.

The Sonnet

Deliberate Gentle Love Dreamer

The Sonnet

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.

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.

This is where I rant about not believing in these damn tests and being a more whole person than is represented by 45 multiple choices on a web page, blah blah.
That being said, my emotional and psychological complexity actually seemed to come through fairly accurately in their complete analysis.

My results are in:

The Hornivore
Random Brutal Sex Master (RBSM)
The Hornivore

Don't ever marry, you're The Hornivore. Roaming, sexual, subhuman.

The Hornivores (you) are some of the most screwed up and naughty beings in the Universe. And their numbers are growing, mostly due to skipped or misused contraception. You care not. There's one thing you want, one sole need.

Half manly, half bestial, you act on instinct, and animal charisma smoothes the way. It's unlikely you're driven by much other than your own selfish, orgasmic requirements. Your appearance and personality have evolved for the hunt. Ass beckons, you oblige.

For the record, you can happily bang all personality types, however your match percentages might be low with the kinder, more sensible people of the world, purely because they all wish to avoid you. Good luck to them.

"One day, the villagers came with torches to the house. In the smoldering ashes, stray dogs looked for cooked flesh."

Your exact male opposite:

The Slow Dancer

Deliberate Gentle Love Dreamer

Always avoid: The Sonnet (DGLD)

Consider: Half-Cocked (RBSD), Genghis Khunt (RBSM)

Well, that just goes to show how broken the test is. You should always avoid the Sonnet? Think how empty your life would have been without me *wink* You're not subhuman, though I won't argue against the analysis that ass offers itself to you ;)
