About This Quiz

Let's be real for a sec: The dating world is an exhausting game to play. You could get your heart broken at any point and you've got all these different "types" to sort through on dating apps. For instance, there's the party animal type who doesn't know where the off switch is on their stereo. Or, there's the comedian who tells one too many jokes on romantic dates. There's also the overly ambitious guy who is determined to be the next Apple CEO and the guy who just isn't ready to settle down yet. But which type are you? Well, let's make things nice and simple in this dating "type" quiz!
We're going to break all of these types down into two categories: nice guys and bad boys. These are the classic stereotypes in the dating world, and they couldn't be more different from each other. The nice guys are often portrayed as charming and sweet people who are chivalrous with their manners. But on the other hand, bad boys have a confident attitude that screams "I do what I want in this world." Both of these types have their pros and cons, but we're about to figure out which one you are with some fun personality questions!
