What Does Your Score Mean?


35 Or Less

You’re Standing in Your Own Way

You want to meet the man who’s right for you, but you’re unwittingly fending him off because you’re afraid of disappointment. You deserve to have a man who adores you and wants to make you happy, so help him get close to you by receiving graciously, making yourself available, practicing better self-care and getting rid of the ex-boyfriends who are still cluttering up your dating space. Yes, you’ve had a broken heart or two, but you can leave your ivory tower and still protect yourself. You’ll never get the relationship you crave any other way.


36 To 60

Are You Comfortable on that Fence?

You don’t like to feel vulnerable, but you’re not completely zipped up in armor either. If you’re unattached, men notice you and flirt with you, and that’s when you really get nervous. The man who’s right for you will either need a good pair of running shoes if he’s going to catch you, or you could practice standing still. Consider accepting dates liberally and think of them as practice for the dating season.

If you’re in a relationship, you may be sending out mixed messages that make him wonder if you’ll stick around. Make a point to receive gifts and compliments graciously, expressing your desires and listening to your intuition. Relax when you’re tempted to take charge, and you’ll stay out of trouble. Surrendering really will help you find the relationship you always dreamed you would have.


61 and Up

It Won’t Be Long

You have an attractive, feminine style that men recognize and respond to immediately. Either you’re already in a relationship with a great guy, or you’ll meet him by the time you finish reading this paragraph. You’re willing to risk your heart, but you’re putting the odds in your favor by setting your limits and letting him take the lead. There’s nothing to stop you from having a passionate, intimate romance.
