Yes, that is correct, I am no longer searching for love! Please pass this information on to anyone particularly charming whom you may know who likes the strong independent types such as myself.
In fact, I have decided to become a Quirkyalone:
Quirkyalone noun/adj.I feel this is a beautiful goal and I would also like to emphasize the bit in parentheses.
A person who has the capacity to enjoy single life (but is not opposed to being in a relationship) and generally prefers to be alone rather than dating for the sake of being in a couple.
To prove to my potential mates who value independence that I am an excellent catch, I have taken the Quirkyalone quiz! Here are my answers:
|1. Do you like walking (alone) at night?|
| Yes, I am fascinated by the interactions between strangers that play out before me.|
In fact, I do like to walk alone and look at the moon and the way the snow/rain glitters.
I think of walking alone in utilitarian terms: It's a matter of getting from point A to point B.
Long walks alone at night do not appeal to me. They seem dangerous and/or boring.
O, I pick the option involving glitter!!!!
2. Has anyone ever called you quirky?
| Yes, people often do.|
Once or twice.
Many times. I have also been called charming, handsome, romantic, and trustworthy.
|3. Which do you have more of, numerically speaking?|
| Past boy/girlfriends.|
This is hard because I feel that the entire world is my amigos and my potential future boyfriends or girlfriends. Since time is truly relative, this means the entire world is also my past boy/girlfriends! You can see from this answer that I am also a philosopher and deep thinker, which I feel makes me more attractive than just having a pretty face and large genitalia.
|4. Did you go to your senior prom?|
| Yes. I went in with a date.|
Yes. I went alone/with friends.
No. No prom for me.
I love proms. I did not have one of my own (alas my basement is not large enough to hold a prom) but I have been to other people's, and generally I wear taffeta to prom, with sparkles and some perfume that smells like gardenias.
|5. How often do you pursue extracurricular activities outside of work?|
| I write, draw, organize, throw pottery, sing, or cycle a few times a week.|
I take classes every so often.
Not so much these days.
I am unsure as to whether "extracurricular activities" is a sexual reference.
|6. What kind of movie would you most like to see?|
| Romantic comedy.|
Indie movie about a fucked-up family.
O, I would pick #1 and #3! I loved all of the gore and action in Watchmen but I truly feel the film would have been improved with more romantic comedy. Why could they not give Rorschach a love interest????
|7. What is your chosen family?|
All of the above.
|8. Would you rather be lonely alone or lonely together?|
| Lonely alone.|
Neither?!?!? What a silly question.
|9. Would you rather have a predictable vibrator or an inconsistent partner? (If you are a man, assume you are a woman.)|
| Vibrators are a woman's best friend. Vibrator, please.|
Inconsistent partner. I prefer the human touch - even if he or she is not that dextrous.
O, an ambidextrous person please.
|10. Have you ever gone to a movie alone?|
No, but I would try.
A few times.
More than a few times.
More than a few times, but I rarely leave alone!!
|11. What is the longest you have gone without a "significant other"?|
| 1 - 3 months|
4 - 8 months
8 months - 2 years
Two years plus
I would prefer not to answer this because the answer is somewhat embarrassing.
|12. When you go to a bar to meet somebody, whom are you looking for?|
| A nice person to talk to.|
Your next boy/girl friend.
A certain feeling of possibility.
I was going to say #1 but truth be told, I am going through a bit of a bad boy faze. So perhaps #3, if the "certain feeling of possibility" means "a certain feeling of possibly ending up on a motorcycle smoking cigarettes and listening to a badass band such as Sabbath".
|13. On the way to work, you spot a perfect JCrew couple holding hands. What do you feel?|
It must be so easy for you.
O, how wonderful!! When I see couples holding hands I do a little dance in thanks to the universe for making love available to each and every one of us. Also sometimes if they are holding hands particularly tightly, I like to play Red Rover! I yell RED ROVER RED ROVER LET SHIMMERSHINE COME OVER and then I run at them as fast as I can! The couple looks so startled and surprised, tee hee hee, but it is almost always a pleasurable surprise!
As you can see, I am both quirky and alone, so if you know someone else who is also like this, please tell them to give me a telephone call!
