Dating Survey

A friend pointed me towards a dating strength and weakness survey which was surprisingly comprehensive in terms of questions. The results are telling...

Dating StrengthsDating Weaknesses
1. Intelligence - 71.4%
2. Generosity - 60%
3. Independence - 57.1%
4. Optimism - 57.1%
5. Sense of Humor - 57.1%
1. Appearance - 77.8%
2. Arrogance - 62.5%
3. Insecurity - 61.5%
4. Shyness - 50%


Dating Strengths Explained
Intelligence - Your sharp intellect is a valuable asset. Use your intelligence wisely; avoid condescension. Quiet, confident intelligence is very attractive.
Generosity - You are a giving person by nature. Others will see this quality in you and recognize your kind nature. Take care not to let others take advantage of you.
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.
Optimism - People are drawn to your positive outlook. Your optimism attracts others to you.
Sense of Humor - Girls are attracted to people with a good sense of humor. Be sure to put yours on display!

Dating Weaknesses Explained
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 girl'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.
Insecurity - Your insecurity makes you doubt yourself, but you must learn to love and trust yourself if you want to succeed in dating.
Shyness - You know all too well the limits shyness places on you. Putting yourself out there in social situations may be difficult, but essential to your dating success.

I guess I agree with most of this stuff... except, why do I have insecurity and arrogance listed as a dating weakness. Aren't those mutually exclusive? That being said, this is all reasonably good advice, if only I could find a girl worth expending the energy.

I'm quite sure that the point of dating is to determine whether a given girl is worth the effort...

I'm quite sure that the point of dating is to find someone who is just as fucked up as you so you don't have to spend the rest of your life explaining why you wear Superman ungaroos.
