Some of them don't rate very highly with my sense of priorities, such as "wanting to share social lives with friends and family". So, if someone got a zero on that, it wouldn't be a bad thing.

Just as some folks are having fun taking the quiz "for fun", I'm having fun making fun of the quiz "for fun".

Frig, I rate 'low' or average, to all but one person. (of romantic interests that is.)

I`ve always had a different value system on love and expression. I`m more the ;
- pick you up when you fall,
- bail you out of crap,
- no-news-is-good-news type.

I fail quizzes quite regularly.

My current relationships both fail this quiz too, although my husband probably ranks marginally higher by default because we live together.

One thing that's not in there, which is important to me, is "laughs at the other person's jokes". I could probably come up with my own quiz but it's not very high on my current give-a-shit list.

A whole nine hours in one day? Damn. What would he say if he had to work some long hours? (Asks a man whose short weeks involve more than 52 hours working.)

Boo on Erin!!!
It got edited to conform to copyright restrictions. Not a big deal.

Controversy is OK. Also not a big deal.

Erin is OK. That is a big deal.

Did I just read that someone broke up with their partner because they failed this quiz? Please tell me that you were planning on breaking up with them anyway, and that you don't let quizzes from Cosmopolitan magazine run your life for you.

LOL, I didn't read it the same way - that she took the quiz and broke it off because he didn't pass. Oh, wow. No, I thought she meant she just recently broke up with someone, then read the quiz and realized that the things he failed in the quiz were why she broke up with him.

I think it helps you let go of those who really aren't into you, too.
