What Your Score Says About You
You scored between 8 and 11
You like a soulful brother–someone sensual like Maxwell, with passion in his eyes like Terrence Howard.
You scored between 12 and 19
Just like you, your guy needs be able to walk into a room and demand attention. You’re looking to be in a power couple so you’ll need a guy with LL Cool J‘s swag and Lance Gross‘s sense of style.
You scored between 20 and 27
You crave adventure and get bored with the norm. It’s no wonder you go after multi-cultural men that can give you a new cultural experience like Adam Rodriguez and Jesse Williams.
You scored between 28 and 35
A man can be creative, well-travelled and all that, but if he can’t scoop you up and throw you over his shoulder, you’re not feeling him. You need a guy like Reggie Bush or David McIntosh to put his big arms around you.
You scored between 36 and 40
You have distinguished taste and crave the finer things in life like sexy, sophisticated on and off screen heartthrobs Idris Elba and Denzel Washington.
