Should you dump someone for failing a dating quiz?

Posted by Ria, 06 Feb 08

There are those of us that put so much value on online quizzes – personality, compatibility. Well one lady did one dating quiz on her boyfriend and Ooops! Followed the question: 'My boyfriend failed a dating quiz. Should I dump him?'

Clearly, to have asked this question, the lady actually has so much faith in the quiz that she is willing to seek a second opinion about it.

Question is, should we even trust things that are written mainly for entertainment purposes? Should one let a simple dating quiz prey upon one’s natural insecurities?

    Wow! to let a random quiz tell you how to live your lif is crazy! You are supposed to go by your head and your heart. What if the person who wrote the quiz has been divorced 3 times or has never been married?

    I would suggest that she dumps her brain! looooool what ever happen to eyes, ears, brain, feelings? sheesh, if she is asking such question she should know that there is something wrong. if everything is right, trust me, God might come down and tell you he is wrong man for you and you still feel he is right for you loooooool.

    it all depends, if you are comfortable with his little quirks then wait and see what happens, but if you have this 6th sense feeling that something isnt right, then it isnt and dumping him may be the smart thing to do. listen to your heart/intuition, it wont lead you astray

    It's like you have a certain standard or criteria in finding who you are compatable w/ and if none of those criteria are lining up w/ him,then you should move on

    I think they can be fun, but must be taken with a grain of salt. The only person who can evaluate your relationship is YOU. Here's a link to a good e-book that has helped me evaluat my relationships ON MY OWN: www.1000questions4couples.com

    Okay, here's the deal. I have provided a number of quizzes for Web sites on subjects which I have only a passing knowledge about. I'd have to consider the source before I was willing to let an online quiz make a decision for me about who I'm going to date and especially about whether to dump someone with whom I am enjoying a dating relationship. Of course I AM on a dating site looking for love, so maybe you should reconsider my source.

    Regarding the quiz: Getting wrong or unexpected answers can be very telling. Definitely worth communicating unless they're are both completely secure in the relationship & realize that differences often attract people to one another. For further info, please contact me & I'll will tell you all about the 29 dimensions of compatability!

    I love taking quizzes because I'm an inquisitive type of person. While I do believe that most quizzes are for entertainment purposes only, I still think that you can learn a lot about someone based on how they answer, and the questions asked. The main point is, it can make room for communication that might not otherwise be there. To dump someone based soley on the fact that they failed a quiz, seems a little extreme, unless of course you were already having second doubts and used this to validate your point.

    Failing a dating quiz should NOT be a reason to break-up but it IS a reason to start communicating. Every couple should probably take the quiz and then they would know where they lack some communication. If you want to break-up over test results maybe you should go back and look at their SAT's and their ACT's.

    The most important thing in a relationship is communication. If you don't have that then everything else is worthless. If you are leaving your relationship up to some quiz test then you need to first really look in the mirror and wonder what is it that you really want.

    Would depend on how many times you have dated him... I give most two to three dates before I give up. But, if I have to keep the conversation up...see ya! No communucation skills...well, that is a must for me. Southern smiles and world peace, Sharon

    If you have natural insecurities AND he failed the quiz, well, then what choice do you have: dump him! I always place all faith & instructions in life upon quizzes that others have made up. Now if the next boyfriend passes the quiz but is mean, selfish, & does not make you happy, then you must try hard to keep him because he passed the quiz. Why should we bother to use our brain when there are quizzes to help us? We can then concentrate on important stuff like worrying about Britney Spears & Lindsay Lohan.
