Mostly A’s: The bad boy
Celebrity boyfriends: Steven Tyler, Pete Doherty, Keanu Reeves
Gotta love ’em: Lord love a bad boy! Who can resist the ultimate male fixer-upper? Sure, he’s usually disheveled in dress and stumbling down the stairs but he’s just trying to live his dream. Unfortunately, he doesn’t give a crap about yours. His addictive personality doesn’t extend to his love life, where he’s as experimental with ladies as he is with substances. There is no white picket fence future with this one. Enjoy the wild ride, and know when to get off (Kate, can you hear me?!).
Mostly B’s: The boy next door
Celebrity boyfriends: Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Gosling, Patrick Dempsey
Gotta love ’em: This Mom-friendly boy is everything you’d expect: he’s thoughtful, sweet and primed for domestication. That means no bells, whistles or spontaneous surprises, but still very reliable. If you want someone who has seriously considered being a stay-at-home dad and looks forward to the two of you growing old together, pick up one of these today. Caution: no sudden or forward movements please, you don’t’ want to scare him away.
Mostly C’s: The mysterious intellectual male
Celebrity boyfriends: Clive Owen, Heath Ledger, Daniel Craig
Gotta love ’em: Dry wit? Check. Brooding? Check. Incessant discussion of all things worldly? Check. Sounds like you’ve all the markings of the mysterious intellectual male on your hands. You may never know what the heck he’s talking about, but who cares? When it comes to relations, guys enjoy the thrill of the chase while us gals enjoy the thrill of conquering of his mind. Plus,
the more questions you ask the better, because these ones love to teach.
He may not know who Lauren, Heidi and Whitney are, but his intense passion for Third World politics indicates intense passion in other areas, if you know what we mean.
Mostly D’s: The Ladies Man
Celebrity boyfriends: George Clooney, Jude Law, Justin Timberlake
Gotta love ’em: Who doesn’t love a smooth talker with twinkling eyes and a naughty sense of humor? His list of conquests may read like the numbers on a lottery ticket, but this guy has a winning combination of attractive qualities. He’s well dressed, well groomed and particularly gifted at making you feel like a million bucks. Unfortunately, he’s always looking to increase his wealth of women, the roving eye of the ladies man is always on the move for the next notch in his designer belt. Expect extravagant gifts, just don’t expect to be his one and only and you won’t get hurt.
Mostly E’s: The funny guy
Celebrity boyfriends: Jack Black, Vince Vaughn, Andy Samberg
Gotta love ’em: Knock, knock, who’s there? It’s the funny guy! Always up for a good time, he knows how to make the best of any situation. He’s the perfect date for awkward formal affairs like staff parties, weddings and funerals because he’s at ease in a sea of strangers and everyone ends up loving him. His down faults may be a lack of motivation or attention to details (like your birthday), but we’re willing to overlook that because he makes us laugh, he means well and he makes us laugh.
