Is Love or Sex More Important to You?

In the sexy new film Love and Other Drugs starring Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal, Maggie and Jamie have rockin’ please-don’t-call-me-tomorrow sex lives. If you’re like them, you may have no intentions of getting involved with anyone. Or, maybe you’re at the opposite end of the spectrum, ready, willing, and looking for a long-lasting commitment. When it comes to love and sex, which is more important to you? Let’s see where you fall.

LOVE

Crush Whore. He’s like your boyfriend except you’ve never gone on a date or, er, spoken to him. Still, you gab to your friends non-stop about every move he’s made in the last minute. She’s the girl of your dreams and you’ll do anything you can to see her, sure that she’ll fall for you if you say just the right thing. You may have never had an entire conversation but you’re sure she’s the love of your life.

SEX

Chase Whore. The less they like you, the more exciting. Power play, challenge and adrenalin is the name of this game. He’s got you so confused you’re sure you’re special. She’s so hard to figure out, you get to distract yourself from your own life. For you, the hottest moment is when you know they’re yours for the night but just before closing the deal.



LOVE

Open Book. You can’t wait to share what life was like for you in junior high to what you like in bed. And your sweetheart wants to do the same. You’re in love and too much information isn’t nearly enough.

SEX

Closed Book. The last thing you want to do is have some dude you’re hot for knowing anything about you besides how to get you off. Or you’re the dude and the girl you’ve spent the night with is trying to pry into your morning routine and your psyche. For you, lust is a momentary thing and any information is too much information.


LOVE

Serial Mater. Can’t remember the last time you had sex? That’s because you haven’t met someone to fall for. Maybe you’ve had a one- nighter or slept with someone just so you can say you did during your dry spell, but you’re looking for someone who will rock your world, a.k.a. “the One”. You’re a long-termer when it comes to relationships, really giving each one a shot, even if they’re nice but lame. Still, you can’t deny your bumper sticker: “Settling is for losers.”

SEX

Serial Dater. You are never without a prospect. Whether it’s a relationship or a one night thing, sex is only a text away. You don’t know what you’re looking for relationship- wise and your standards aren’t unrealistic. On one hand you don’t want to get into something where you’ll be trapped. On the other, you could because the option of cheating is open to you if you need it. It’s more like “sexploring” to you.

LOVE

Public. You want to introduce them to your friends, your family, anyone who can give a handshake. You put up a nauseating photo together as your facebook photo. You want them with you at parties, restaurants, sidewalks. And you don’t care what anyone thinks.

SEX

Private. Okay, so who you’re hooking up with may not be in your league. In fact, the one place you’d feel comfortable with them outdoors is on a deserted island. For now, it’s your place or theirs and the title of “friends” or “anonymous”.


LOVE

Long Term. Who doesn’t want to think about the future? Whether it’s pure fantasy or true love, the only place you want to be right now is fantasizing about the next call, the next rendezvous, the next fifty years.

SEX

Short Term. Who wants to think about the future? Whether it’s because you think relationships are too much work or because you’re having too much fun, it’s about the here and now and the hottie across the bar. Or, perhaps you’re a user. You need a favor and are willing to get naked to get it.


LOVE

Losing Yourself. People are saying you’re different and even you can tell you’re not like you. Good version: You’re with the right person; inspired by the object of your affection, stepping up like never before.
You’re losing yourself in it in the most satisfied of ways. Not so good version: You’re with the wrong person, losing yourself in it in the most insecure way, jealous, and smothering. Go with version one.

SEX

Finding Yourself. Your decisions are becoming irrational. You can’t wait to hear from that one you’re having all the great sex with. This isn’t what you signed up for. Deny it all you want but it’s much more and you know it. Whether you like it or not this one was different and challenged you in just the right way. The great sex lead you to something unexpected like, say, love. How could you let that happen?! Well, sometimes the person you least expected becomes the one person you need the most.
