If You Scored Mostly 1s

The man of your dreams looks something like Ben Barry (Matthew McConaughey) from How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. You have a sparkling personality and make friends easily, but sometimes, this makes you feel like no one takes your work seriously. When you’re having a bad day, though, persistent guys like Ben stick around through whatever emotion you’re feeling. You want a guy who won’t let you run away – from your potential or your relationship.

If You Scored Mostly 2s

You love a workplace romance almost as much as you love Andrew Paxton from The Proposal. You like the idea of getting to know someone slowly over time after working together. You’re a go-getter in most areas of your life, but you haven’t found the right time for romance yet. Sure, you can be a bit of a perfectionist when you’re stressed, but guys like Andrew balance out your type-A tendencies.

If You Scored Mostly 3s

The secret’s out: You like unconventional guys like Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger) in 10 Things I Hate About You. You don’t cave into social pressure easily, and you have a clear idea of the things you do and don’t like. You like that Patrick lives his life on the wild side because your life is never going to be boring. 

If You Scored Mostly 4s

There might be trouble along the way, but you’re destined for Anyone But You’s Ben (Glen Powell). When you feel something for a guy, it’s incredibly strong – even if you don’t know what that feeling is at first. You often figure out how you feel and what you want to do in life through a battle of wills with other people. When push comes to shove, though, you’re secretly a hopeless romantic and waiting for a man to make the grand gesture that will win your heart.

If You Scored Mostly 5s

You’re a homebody who has always wanted a big family, and luckily, so does Jack (Bill Pullman) in While You Were Sleeping. You’ve got an old-fashioned taste in movies and music, and you love a man who works with his hands. You’re a little shy, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have big dreams. You’re ready to travel the world and are waiting for the Jack in your life who wants to give the world to you.
