How did you score?
You're exuberant. You're hopeful. You can recite the lines to The Princess Bride by heart. You're a Romance Junkie. In a world full of booty texts and random hookups, you long for someone to send you a love letter. Sometimes you think you were born in the wrong decade, but don't despair. Your Wesley may have been momentarily sidelined, but his princely pecs will come for you in the end. So keep your hopes high. It's what you do best.
As a fiercely independent woman, you know you don't need to wait by your phone in order to have a good time. You're charismatic. You're calculating. You leave a trail of broken-hearts in your wake. You are Love's CEO. By treating your romantic encounters like business transactions, you keep disappointment in check, but you miss out on the spontaneous bursts of passion you crave. So don't be afraid to invest in someone and wear your heart on your sleeve. It won't clash with your Armani.
So you've managed to stay in touch with everyone you've ever slept with. The Rules? What Rules? You make your own because you're a Stage 5 Clinger. When you're not blogging your relationships in real time, you are crying to anyone who will listen how he never called back. It's not that he's not into you, it's just that no one can ever be into you that much. So go home, resist the urge to speed-dial, and take a long bath.
