testHere’s a second sampling of questions from “The Questions Game,” back by popular demand. If you didn’t read Part I, here’s a quick recap of what this is all about:

I love Test For Friends, a game you can play on your phone. At first glance, it seems a dating app, but upon closer inspection, it serves as a great self-assessment tool. I game with randoms because it requires an android (I think) and barely anyone has those in my circle. It is that much fun. 

A new batch I’ve come across follows. (Ignore the off wording; it’s from Denmark). It’s multiple choice and sometimes doesn’t offer the option you would choose, but it’s still eye-opening. I’m going to make this into a cocktail party card game and you are all invited!

♦You’re supposed to choose a teammate for a game. You go with (a) best player (b) best friend

♦Have you ever pretended to be single when you were flirting, even though you weren’t?

♦With whom would you rather talk? (a) your ancestors (b) your descendents

♦You check into a hotel. What’s the first thing you notice in your room? (a) if it has Wifi (b) whether the beds are clean (c) the view from the window

♦Would you have nude photos taken for one million dollars?

♦You have an impromptu date at the cafe, but all your clothes are in the wash. What do you wear from what’s left in your closet? (a) formal wear (b) tracksuit (c) the Christmas sweater from Grandma

♦Would you rather have only male or only female colleagues? [Interesting depending on whether a male or female is answering the question and why they chose their answer]

♦Freedom or security: Which is more important to you?

♦Where does cheating start? (a) flirt (b) kiss (c) sex

♦ The bouncer won’t let one of your friends into the club. You: (a) go in anyway (b) all in or we bounce!

♦Where do you see yourself at 80 years old? (a) at the senior Olympics (b) on a porch with grandchildren (c) with a blind date [What about (d) none the the above?! I want that option]

♦A  friend is really proud of her new haircut although it’s totally ugly. What do you do? (a) pretend to like it (b) I tell her

♦Do you give or take more in relationships?

♦If you had to do it for a year, what would be worse for you (a) get up at 4am on workdays (b) live abroad on your own

♦You are a bridesmaid or groomsman and are asked to wear an outfit you don’t like. Do you still wear it out of respect for the couple?

♦Should a liar be lied to? (a) of course (b) no, honesty triumphs

♦Should men shave their armpits? [my opponent, a man, actually said YES. Too much.]

testI love this game and have tried to get peeps to play, but it requires an android and my bf is the only other person in my circle that has one. I make up for this by secretly recreating with randoms using the app. Although Test For Friends seems like it’s for dating, upon closer inspection, it serves as a great self-assessment tool.

Here’s a sampling of questions. The only frustrating part is that this program hails from Denmark, so the wording can be off. It’s multiple choice and sometimes doesn’t offer the option you would choose. For example, the first question below. Beyond the duds, though, it can be eye-opening. I’m going to make this into a cocktail party card game and you are all invited!

♦Which do you prefer more? Skirts or pants? (Confusion: Does that mean on me or you? I certainly prefer skirts, but not on a guy…although kilts do have a certain appeal.)

♦Could you show a friend your last five text messages without checking them first?

♦You’re stuck in an elevator with an extremely attractive person. What is your first reaction?: (a) delight (b) panic

♦Your best friend is in love with someone you can’t stand. What do you do? (a) try to talk her out of it (b) try to understand him

♦If you could choose a period of life for a month, which would it be? (a) child (b) teenager (c) adult…Awkward wording, but you know what they mean.

♦You think your partner cheats on you. Would you secretly read his/her text messages if s/he forgot his/her phone?

♦You have to go to the toilet urgently, but there is a a long queue. The one for the other sex, however, is free. Do you use that one? [My answer is:  Of course!]

♦Which luxury would you most likely get for your home? (a)  gym and pool (b) cinema (c) butler and chef

♦How eclectic is your group of friends?

♦When was the last time you shared a bed with someone? Options are: (a) recently (b) a while ago (c) a shut mouth catches no flies (HA!)

♦Do you smoke? (Are they referring to pot or cigarettes?) Answer choices are “yes” “no” & “only at parties”

♦Do you consider kissing cheating? (This is super complicated as a yes or no when you, a straight girl, loves to give your gay boy love a peck on the lips)

♦A friend has a new partner. Now, they only spend time together. Can you understand them? (a) of course (b) they’re exaggerating a bit

♦Does a nude photo of you exist?

If you like this, I’ll post a second installment, as there are way too many questions to list. It’s fun with friends, and if you are in the dating scene, you can figure out what guys are playboys because they always try to say the right thing rather than the real thing. Weed out the bad ones and have fun at the same time, RAD.
