It All Makes Sense Now

You Don't Have a Boyfriend Because You Are Too Shy
When a guy gets to know you, he finds a great catch.
Problem is... you're too shy for most guys to get to know.
From meeting someone to dating, you usually have your guard up.
And while you're just holding back, it makes you seem like you've got something to hide.
And here I thought it was because I am a huge pain in the ass.

Why Don't You Have a Boyfriend?

Pfft. I'm too forward. Screw that.

Neil said...

If you're TOO SHY, I might as well just jump off the roof right now.

Brookelina said...

Lushy - maybe you could give me forward lessons.

Neil - I think shy was the wrong word to use there - it's more like cautious...guarded...suspicious... hesitant to trust. Shy has never been a word used to describe me.

jiggs said...

Why can't it be both because you're too shy AND because you're a pain in the ass. ZING!

Sorry. i couldn't help myself.

jiggs said...

I took the test too and it turns out I'm too shy to find a boyfriend

Wendy said...

Apparently I am too shy as well. Maybe we should start a club.

Bill said...

It told me I was too shy as well. I thought it might say I was too straight but, no, too shy.

What's with all those tests anyway? They're only for girls. "Are you a Good Girl or a Bad Girl?" Well, a bad girl I guess - I ain't got a vagina so I'm not very good at being a girl.

"Do you ruin relationships?" ... "What perfume are you?" ... These really aren't boy questions.

A boy question might be something like, "If you were on a quail shoot and accidently shot someone, who would it be?"

yournamehere said...

Yeah, I don't have a boyfriend because I don't fancy an ass-rogering. Just like you wouldn't expect a gay man to like "eating at the Y".

You're shy, Brooke? You hide it well. Of course, I'm shy in real life, and who'd know it from reading my blog?

MoDigli said...

SHY? Brooke?! The girl who flips off cops and gets chased by hookers? I don't think so! :)

Brookelina said...

Jiggs - and you're a pain in the ass too. Zing!!!

Wendy - I wonder if there is another answer to this test.

Bill - I fell off my chair when I read about Cheney. It just doesn't get any better than that. As for the tests, stop your bitching. For a guy you sure sound like a chick.

Todd - shy and Brooke. That is the first time those two words have ever been in the same sentence together. Trust me.

MoMo - thank you! You are the only one who understands me! Shy is not the word to describe me, even if the rest of that analysis is true. I'm not shy, I'm tragically fucked up!

Dan said...

So where is the one for the quiz for "why you don't have a girlfriend?" It would serve as a ready answer for all those that wonder.

Bill said...

Imagine havng dinner over at Cheney's place?

"What's for dinner?"

"Quail."

"You sure? Tastes like a 78-year old lawyer."

"Sure I'm sure. Shot it myself!"

Sysm said...

I'm less surprised by the combination of "Brooke" and "shy" than I am with "ass" and "roger".

Coining new sexual euphemisms is this group's greatest strength.

Consider the gauntlet thrown.

Neil said...

You're not shy like distrustful, either. Look at all the crazy stalkers you let write on your blog every day, like myself.

Cincysundevil said...

Ahem ... how many times have I offered to be your boyfriend? I try to wow you with my exploits about how I like to cook and I will develop the washboard stomach just for you!

Apostle Chip said...

I am too busy for a boyfriend.

Fuck.

Egan said...

Who the hell created those questions? If you're shy, then I am gay. Oh shit, there I go again.

Jill said...

Go look at the naked man booty on Much Ado About Nuthin'. She's on my blogroll.

Flounder said...

It told me that I don't have a boyfriend because I'm not gay.

your anti-hero said...

I'm too straight to have a boyfriend.

joanne said...

That test says I don't have a boyfriend because I am too picky. That might be true, but I don't even get asked out to begin with!?!! So I am just as monumentally fucked up as you are!!

ChickyBabe said...

I'm too shy as well. And I thought that was because I was a silhouette in the sand!

sandra said...

Hmm. After learning that I am apparently "too busy" for a boyfriend, I took another quiz -- which told me that I am "an attainable challenge". Learning so much...!

Knitty Kitty said...

is there are quiz for "why the frick do you have a boyfriend!?!?" cause sometimes I'm not sure why he stays with me.

piddleville said...

Since everyone seems to be too shy, perhaps there is a sales skills course we all could take? Then we could all become offensive, have shallow interests and attract people!

Why is it the more disagreeable you are the more attractive you are?

Bill said...

Bloody computers, bloody Internet, bloody Bogger ... suddenly it's changed my name from Bill to Piddleville. Arrggghhh!!!!

Super Mongo said...

A man can deal with a 'pain in the ass', if not, men and women would hardly speak. As long as there are up-sides to the downs we can take an awful lot!

Tumbleweed said...

Well, that was a sucky test! It said I had no problem getting guys but I was too picky. What the hell? I guess I better lower my standards, but they still have to be clean and brush their teeth, I am not budging on that one!! I think we would make a good team Brooke. I am bold so I could reel them in with the "see my pretty friend over there, she is shy" and then you could win them over!

miss kendra said...

i'm too forward to have a boyfriend.

someone ought to tell him.

none - ya said...

I don't have a boyfriend, apparently, b/c I'm too forward.

No doubt that you've got game
Just a little too much game for some guys
Maybe it's just that some men like a challenge
Or they think they're not challenging enough for you!

That fucking blows, but I won't worry about it too much until I start buying cats.

at the Lake said...

Valentine's Day sucks. Wish there was a heart candy that said that.

thephoenixnyc said...

I do not have a boyfriend because, well, I am not gay.

Übermilf said...

According to that quiz, I don't have a boyfriend because I'm "too busy."

It's true!

Egan said...

Funny side note Ubie - my buddies and I joke about the term "busy" as code for having homosexual tendancies. I read your comment and chuckled to myself quite a bit.

Übermilf said...

Sigh. Can't a woman be focused on her own cupcakes? Must it always be about the S-E-X?

Brookelina said...

Dan - don't kill the messenger. Go to the site and complain!

Bill - I didn't read anything past "Imagine having dinner at Cheney's place." I'd rather be strapped to an anthill naked.

Sysm - well, I'm waiting! Where are euphemisms?

Neil - oh no, I am extremely mistrustful when it comes to men. I never believe a word they say, including the blog boys. But they do entertain.

Cincy - bring it on baby!

Chip - well at least you can bang your apostle buddies.

Egan - I don't even have to answer that one.

Jill - your blogroll is so confusing! And did you really list me as a southerner? I may have to kill you.

Flounder - it told me that I'm shy, so there you have it.

Anti - I can't wait to see you come screaming out of the closet.

Brookelina said...

Joanne - join the monumentally fucked up club!
MFU forever!

Chicky - I still don't think that the creators of this test understand what the word shy means.

Sandra - oh I want to see that one!

Knitty - because you are fabulous, that's why.

Bill - so people that aren't shy are offensive and shallow? Well yeah, that pretty much describes me.

Mongo - I'm only going to say this once, "Mongo only pawn... in game of life." Thank you.

Weed - that's pretty much how my best friend and I worked our way through Europe. She would lure them with her cleavage, and then I would dazzle them with my witty repartee.

Kendra - we so need to hang out.

Mack - I think for you this quiz came out exactly right. As for the cats, that is exactly why I won't get any. Bad enough I'm 40 and a single schoolteacher. If I get any cats I may as well throw all my condoms in the garbage.

Lake - it sucks. It blows. If I wasn't a teacher I would probably take the day off tomorrow and hide in bed until it was over.

Phoenix - so why don't you have a girlfriend then?

Ubie - yes, with your husband and children!!!

Egan - you're so gay.

Ubie - I love your cupcakes.

at the Lake said...

we had a snow day so all the lil kiddies stayed home

Egan said...

Cupcakes = boobies

Calzone said...

Yeah you are so totally shy and all that

Brookelina said...

Lake - screw you and your snow day.

Egan - I like boobies too.

Calzone - but the rest is true.

at the Lake said...

not to rub it in but tomorrow is a half day for teachers here..
"professional development" (i.e. hiding under covers)

Think Frustrated said...

I don't have a boyfriend because I'm not gay. I don't need some quiz to tell me that. (don't I?)

captain_howdy_girl said...

You Don't Have a Boyfriend Because You are Too Picky
You have no problem attracting guys - and even dating a little
It's just around second or third date time where you start to see faults
If a guy isn't near perfect, you're not into him.
It's good to have standards - but yours rule almost everyone out.

I hate it when they say it like it's a bad thing...
