Anyone here ever put up a "personal ad" on an Internet "dating service"? They generally have a long information form for you to fill out which asks what your political affiliations are, what your favorite color is, favorite food, and lots of other stuff, then they use the answers to come up with a "compatibility score" between you and prospective partners.
If you were to write such a quiz, what questions would you ask?
Some of my questions:
1) Do you make your bed in the morning?
a) Of course! I can't stand to look at an empty bed.
b) Usually, but I'm not fanatic about it.
c) Smeg no! I'm just going to have to get back in it again tonight and mess it up.
2) Do you talk on the phone and drive?
a) No! I hate that! Ban the use of mobile phones while driving!
b) I would if I had a phone.
c) It's OK if it's a "hand's free" phone.
d) Of course I do! That's time well spent! People who complain about such things are a bunch of nuts!
3) If it weren't for the possibility of sexually transmitted diseases, would you be concerned about a new partner's sexual history?
a) Yes! I want to be his/her only one, ever!
b) A little, but that's my own insecurity talking - I wouldn't burden him/her with my feelings on this matter.
c) No! In fact, I want him/her to have LOTS of past partners! (A great lover is a well practiced lover).
