Are You “Interesting” Enough to Date? Take This Quiz to Find Out.

Pin it

kill me.

There’s a new dating site which makes members take a “QI” test to see if you are “quirky-interesting” enough to “date.” The site allows you to “collect funky badges” and use “Instagram-like effects” (lol) on your profile to maximize your — are we going to say quirk, again? Alright — your quirk.

In other words, it’s the Manic Pixie Dream Dating Site.

It’s also fairly elitist, and seems to be tailor-made for, not only people who not only have hobbies, but a seemingly endless amount of time and resources with which to pursue them. How many  books have you read, how many languages do you speak, how many different kinds of sports do you play are among the hilariously self-satisfying quiz questions. 

Still, a quiz is a quiz, and if your competitive nature drives you to take 5 minutes out of your work day in order to ascertain exactly how this grating site feels about your “quirk intelligence,” then check out the (leading) questions below.

1. How many times have you traveled outside of your own country in the last 6 months?
