Everyone loves a Boston girl. This is the story of one Boston girl's adventures in the city, in blogging, and in getting through those crazy 20-something years.

I'm a writer by trade. And by passion. I'm a lover of food, friends, and all things Boston. I listen to music pretty much 24/7 and idolize Martha Stewart. I love my job(s), my life, and this city. Follow me on Twitter! @Susie

little miss priss.

Peter told us to take this quiz so I did. And since I have nothing to blog about, I’m going to tell you to take it. It was kind of long and annoying, but the questions were easy to answer and interesting so I trucked on. The quiz results told me my dating persona and now I realize why I am probably completely screwed when it comes to dating. My dating persona is…The Priss. Wow. And it’s probably true. How boring do I sound? Mature. Responsible. Artistocratic. Excuse me. The Priss. Right, excuse me while I go and get just a little bit more bored by myself. Yawn. I guess my mom was right in calling me “little miss priss;” I still hate it when she says that. But at least I’m smart and unfake…and “excellent at redirecting internal negative energy.” Still, priss is not a pretty word to me.

Not to mention, they tell me to consider dating The Manchild. Um, first of all that just sounds scary. Second of all, I clicked on his profile and they basically tell The Manchild to stop dating because he sucks at life. And wait, I think I’ve already dated a few of those so I’m all set, thank you very much.

Granted, I’m not really taking this test too seriously since it’s from OKCupid. Which actually looks like an entertaining website. Minus the fact that it’s sketchy as hell.

But take it. And if you’re a Manchild, then by all means.

I really need to clean my room tomorrow. I can’t concentrate in clutter. And I’ve got clutter everywhere. Oh, and as far as I could tell, they didn’t shut the water off at all today. Good thing I got up after getting 4 hours of sleep so I could shower and use some water for the day. That was fun. So now I must sleep.

    Cleaning your room? That’s a little prissy. ;)

    But, I like this whole doing what Peter says thing.

    “The Manchild?” That does sound creepy…. Also, I know those quizzes hardly an authority, but whatever – they’re great for when you’re bored. I think I’ll take this dating personality one, just to see.

  3. ToKissTheCook Says:

    This is what I love about us. We run parallel in ways that are a little creepo sometimes.

    Upcoming post from TKTC is about how my friend Caroline and I signed up for CrazyBlindDate.com last night. Which is powered by….OkCupid. A site I had never heard of until last night.

    Hysterical.

  4. Jenn Says:

    I’m the Maid of Honor. It makes me seem like I’m dying to get married, which I’m not.

  5. ToKissTheCook Says:

    Oh look, two comments on one post. It’s magic!

    Can we talk about this? I am “The Window Shopper” which is really quite accurate. Problem…the last line of my summary is:
    Though you’re drawn to them, avoid artists at all costs.

    Another one for the “I Could Not Make This Shit Up” files.

  6. So@24 Says:

    You totally dont give off the priss vibe. I don’t get that quiz.

  7. Sara Says:

    i just took that quiz… it sucked.

  8. Renee Says:

    I shamefully have an account on the shady OKCupid… but it’s ancient.

  9. Therapeutic Ramblings Says:

    I got, “The Player” one. :( I think it doesn’t like me….but that’s okay. I’m a changed man!

  10. Samantha Says:

    Run far away from anyone described as a Manchild!

  11. Samantha Says:

    I did the test. I am “The Sonnet.”

  12. Michelle & the City Says:

    i was the battleaxe. i mean come on. this test can’t be accurate! ;)

  13. t.b.f.love. Says:

    Haha, like Jenn, I am the Maid of Honor. And should therefore consider the Gentleman. Not sure how much I agree… but I guess part of it’s true.

  14. Larissa Says:

    The Manchild sounds like an awful character. Don’t give in!

  15. Damsel in Digress Says:

    i took this quiz too! and a couple lines made me laugh (like the one that redirected you to match.com if you had stds) … and i found out i am a ghengis kunt. massive points for creativity on the name, i suppose.

    have a happy weekend!

  16. emrlds Says:

    honestly, kind of scared of the results of that one.
    and a sidenote – i’m on craigslist apartment/roommate hunting in coolidge corner. convince me it’s a good idea. =)

  17. Julie Q Says:

    oh no! I got the “Sudden Departure” title.. aka i’m a serial monogamist.. Dr. Phil- what does that mean if i’m married? hahaha and you weren’t kidding thats a long ass quiz :)

  18. Phantom Hater Says:

    I’m “The Vapor Trail(Random Brutal Love Master)”

    I really didn’t think I was that much of a douchebag, but I guess these tests never lie. :)

  19. Trish Ryan Says:

    Run, girl, run! Do not date the Manchild!

  20. Katelin Says:

    Manchild? That just sounds so weird.

  21. Stacey Says:

    Haha, I was “The Peach.” And don’t worry – I don’t think you’re a priss. Since I’ve known you solely via blogging & only for a few months, you can totally take that compliment to the bank. ;)
