About This Quiz

If you scroll back through history, you'll find that the first couple existed right after the second human existed. We have an innate need to pair up — it's biology. The thing that separates us from the animals is that we don't do it strictly for biological reasons. We have that added advantage of being discerning. We look for people who match up with us, who bring out the best in us and who, in turn, offer us the things we really value in someone else. For one person, that may be totally physical. For another, it could be totally intellectual. Some need emotional support. Some people just want a rich partner. Most people have a type that they're into — maybe even a few types. But when it comes to that guy you want, you can't help but sometimes wonder if you really are his type or not.

Lucky for you, there are lots of ways to piece together where you fit into the puzzle of this guy's life. Are you exactly what he wants? Maybe you're what he needs when he doesn't even know it. Maybe you're a complete about-face from his type. It can get confusing, but we're here to help! Take the quiz and see if you're truly his type.
