Patrick in his Weekender, asks us to take a dating quiz. This was my result.

2. Adventurousness - 75%
3. Independence - 71.4%

2. Negative Reputation - 77.8%
3. Appearance - 66.7%
4. Arrogance - 62.5%
5. Closed-Mindedness - 54.5%

Dating Strengths Explained
Flirtiness - Flirting is a good way to break the ice, and you are a pro at it. Being flirtatious will open up many dating opportunities.
Adventurousness - You are willing to try new things and be spontaneous. You want to get out there and really live, and you will attract people with a similar love of life.
Independence - Your strong sense of independence comes in handy while dating. You are not held back or tied down; you are free to pursue your interests.
Confidence - You are sure of yourself and confident of your abilities. Displays of confidence go a long way when attracting a date.
Optimism - People are drawn to your positive outlook. Your optimism attracts others to you.
Dating Weaknesses Explained
Selfishness - You think too much of yourself and your needs. You must learn to put your partner first and tend to her needs.
Negative Reputation - Your reputation may be working against you. Sometimes this is impossible to control, but try to counter-act it by presenting yourself in positive ways.
Appearance - Devoting a greater effort at making good first impressions is a must. Try to be fit and develop a style if you want to catch a woman's attention.
Arrogance - You are a bit full of yourself. You need to practice a little humility now and then, as arrogance can be a turn-off.
Closed-Mindedness - You are very fixed in your world-view, but if you open up a little you will see that people can hold different beliefs and still get along well.

He asks were there any surprises.  Only that I was considered Closed-Minded.  I thought I was open to new ideas and adventures...but others may not consider me so.

Patrick also asks if we would date anyone based on email experience only.  I would have to say..yes.  I have and it resulted in a very pleasant romance.  It is only too bad that the lady lived 2000 miles away and it was so hard to get together.

Well, this is interesting.  It's a bunch of HTML code, but when I go to add a comment I can see what's SUPPOSED to be there.

Weird.

I'm surprised at the closed-mindedness too! I find you are one of the least closed-minded people I have ever communicated with! Makes me think there is a flaw with this test!  Thanks for sharing.  And I have to agree that sometimes the online dating thing is very difficult because of the distance!

A flaw in the test? On the internet? How could that be? This test is uncannily accurate. For example, for me it said:

My top trait - LIBERAL. Politics matters to you, and you aren't afraid to share your left-leaning views. You would never be caught voting for a conservative candidate.

My top match trait - CONSERVATIVE. Forget liberals, you need a conservative match. Political discussions interest you, and a conservative will offer the viewpoint you need.

Clearly this test is not flawed. It must be you.
