Changing Changingly

In 2004 I was The Window Shopper. My takeaways from that result include “Likely to carry on an romance from afar.” and also “You take love as opportunities come, which can lead to a high-anxiety, but high-flying romantic life.”

In order to understand this result, we need to first look at where I was in life when the test was taken. I’d just celebrated my first “divorce-aversary”, had an 8-month old nursling, and was generally in the throes of PPD. Afraid to leave the house (with or without children), anxious about EVERYTHING, and significantly overweight (in that “You need blood pressure medication and a diuretic for that bloat” kind of way). Finding a partner of ANY type was completely and totally beyond me, and I was OK with that.

The next time I took that test was in 2006, and I was The Priss. “people are often intimidated by you” and choosier than most about your partners. A supportive relationship is what you’re really after.

Obviously coming out of the fog, reasserting my personality, and getting ready to relaunch myself. Researching school, looking for work, somethingANYTHING.

Ten years later, there have been a LOT of changes. I am now THE STILETTO

Edgy. Physical. Devastating. You are The Stiletto, of all types, the most likely to be a dominatrix and the least likely to apologize.

Sex is your object, and you have a LOT of it. Doubtless, you’ve figured out how easy it is for a dominant, assertive woman to have as many and whichever partners as she chooses. You’re in control, you know what you want, and you get it, right there. It’s highly likely you have a nice body, and it’s even more likely we’re getting all turned on right now writing this.

You’re generally careful with your actions and words, but your test answers indicate you’ve hurt some people, drawn some blood. This means one of two things. Either you’re calculating, and pain is just part of your game plan, or hurting the occasional girl is just the unfortunate, but natural, byproduct of your liberated sexual existence.

Our tendency is to believe the latter: you’re willing to engage women on a basic sexual level, and clearly they’re attracted to you. It’s understandable that a few might get overly attached, and sometimes harshness is the only way for you to escape: you’ve got to cut your way out. After all, it’s not emotional bondage you’re looking for right now.

Mmhmm.
