Flirting Quiz

Discover Your Flirting Style — If You Have One

I just stumbled upon an academic inquiry into the age-old subject of flirting by the University of Kansas. I love taking surveys, so naturally I clicked away. It's based on the five types of flirts we already know: physical, traditional, polite, sincere, and playful. But the results — while probably correct — don't really sugarcoat things. Clearly, they were not written by a polite flirt!

Above are the results for your TrèsSugar editors, and if you cannot tell by my bitterness the bottom results are mine and the top are Annie's. Yes, according to this survey I am a flirting disaster. Not only do my results say you are not "competent in expressing sexual interest to potential partners," but also "When flirting, it is not very likely that you are: successful." Well, you know, nobody's ever called me a flirt, so maybe it's not that far off.

Now we're wondering how Très readers stack up as a whole, so go take the survey and tell us your results below.

"You are very unlikely to seek out important and meaningful romantic relationships" because I'm untraditional?! Whaaaat?

I've always been a big flirt. 90-100% physical, 10% traditional and polite, 80% sincere and playful. It's so true.

Physical: 90-100%; Traditional: 10-20%; Polite: 20-30%; Sincere: 60-70%; Playful: 90-100%...I'd say it's pretty accurate!

Apparently, I'm somewhat likely to be physical, traditional, polite and sincere. Not playful. I always though I was playful when I'm flirting! Hum....

Apparenly I'm not physical, sincere, or playful. I'm polite and traditional, who knew?

Very physical, not at all traditional, not very polite, not at all sincere, somewhat playful... well I was hoping for a little more polite and sincere but this is closer to the truth...

I am a very, very playful flirt. Flirting is fun! This said I was not at all traditional, but somewhat sincere, very polite, and somewhat physical. I thought this was actually pretty accurate.

Don’t worry about it Colleen – I scored not at all ‘polite’ and highest on ‘sincere.’ According to this survey, I’m “very unlikely to use proper manners, non-sexual communication and less forward behavior during courtship.” I’m “not at all choosy” and unlikely to having meaningful romantic relationships. (I think I'm Santana on Glee according to this survey) I’ve been teased about my manners all my life – one guy admitted he knew he could count on my being too much of a lady to cause a scene when I should have (of course, this survey didn’t have a ‘pushover’ category); one niece wrote a short story for school based on me: as a very polite killer of the ill-mannered. My relationship average is 11 years, I don’t date much in between, and I remain on good terms with exes. I thought the statements were too concrete, and I stuck to the middle for most answers.
