About This Quiz
In a sitcom, it's super easy to figure out how to attract a guy. Give him beer and pizza and wear a lowcut top and you're golden. But that's just how sitcoms work. In the real world, believe it or not, there's more to figuring out guys than the basic caveman urges that pop culture ascribes to them. Make no mistake, those caveman urges are absolutely a part of many guys' psyches, and you can probably get a long way with beer and pizza for most guys. But there is more diversity there, and it's not as easy as magazines or blogs might make you believe it is to get to the heart of every guy. But we're not really worried about "every" guy here, are we? Just guys in general. You need to know how to work the big picture before you hone in on one specific guy, and with that in mind, you need to know if you're setting off on the wrong foot from the get-go. So why not answer a few questions for us about how you approach guys and we'll let you know if you're doing yourself a favor or making it worse. Are you attracting those guys or pushing them away? Take the quiz and see!

If your guy is out for a while with friends, how long before you call him to see how he's doing?

If I know where he is and what he's doing, why would I bother him?
