I saw this survey from Blogthings on Kris' site (Random Mentality), and decided to see how they derived their assertions. So here are my results:
What Are The Keys To Your Heart?
|The Keys to Your Heart|
|You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.|
|In love, you feel the most alive when your lover is creative and never lets you feel bored.|
|You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.|
|You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.|
|Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything... no secrets.|
|Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.|
|You think of marriage pessimistically. You don't think happy marriages exist anymore.|
|In this moment, you think of love as commitment. Love only works when both people are totally devoted.|
I agree with almost all of that. Love should be free, honest, devoted... I like creativity, but I don't see it as someone else's responsibility to make sure that I'm not bored. Of course my lover should think that I'm alluring.
I'd have to agree with having a tough go when my partner is "moody" or "difficult to please." Emotional doesn't bother me - I cry at a decent number of movies.
I wouldn't say that I'm pessimistic about marriage at all. I'm not interested in a relationship at the moment, but I know plenty of people happily married. Doug and Jody, several people with whom I work, my mom and her husband... Which question was it that suggested that answer? Maybe it was because I answered "Dinosaur..."
My answers were:
1. Horse (most utilitarian)
2. Monkey (most interesting)
3. Cat (loved by most, can be just about anywhere, and they get around well)
4. Snake (where I live, I'm not bothered by sharks, lions, or crocodiles)
5. Horse (I almost answered bird, but horses seem more friendly)
6. Human (well, of course)
7. Dinosaur (how exotic!)
8. Pigeon (oh, to fly...)
