Mostly A’s: You’re a Leonard Hofstadter from The Big Bang Theory. We all know the guys on Big Bang can be a little cliché at times, but Leonard is always the middle-ground voice of reason, and he manages to be his science-loving self without being a complete neurotic (love ya, Sheldon!). You embrace geek culture, but you’re not afraid to try new things or relationships.

Mostly B’s: You’re an Abed Nadir from Community! A pop culture obsessed dude who lives, breathes, and probably creates movies, you don’t discriminate: you love all forms of media equally, and you appreciate others who do the same. Some might find you quirky, but those who know you know how genuine you are.

Mostly C’s: You’re a George Michael Bluth from Arrested Development. Shy and socially awkward, you generally don’t like to rock the boat. You don’t really stand out, and you don’t really fit it, but you’re cool with that. Your quiet demeanor can both help and hurt your search for the perfect companion—which is important to you, but you have faith, as you should, that you will find ‘the one’ when you’re meant to.

Mostly D’s: You’re a Sherlock Holmes (as played by Benedict Cumberbatch). You have little time for anyone or anything that doesn’t pertain to your work or interests, and that’s just the way you want it. You love science more than most things in life, and you’re a stickler for logic and deduction. Others may not ‘get’ you, but they sure know who to go to when they need help with their homework, or a tutoring session.

Mostly E’s: You’re a Dwight Shrute from The Office, although mayhaps a little less over-the-top. While you’re not necessarily anti-social, you don’t have a core group or posse with whom you hang, but that’s because your interests are varied and a bit on the fringe. You fancy yourself a bit of a ninja, but you’re also down for a prank or two when called for.

Which one are you?
