20 Questions to a Better Relationship

eXpressive: 7/10
Practical: 4/10
Physical: 5/10
Giver: 6/10

You are a XSYG--Expressive Sentimental Physical Giver. This makes you a Sex Bomb.

You are sexy sex sex sex! The sexness! You are the sexiest, hottest and most charismatic of all types. You are a captivating speaker and a great dinner date -- relaxed, self-effacing, charming and generous. Your type probably has origins in something sad -- trying to keep the peace in a tough family situation, or an early heartbreak -- and you'll probably want to address and resolve that at some point, but in your relationships that heartache is pure gold!

You lie effortlessly -- not necessarily a bad thing. You can have problems with fidelity. You need frequent praise and validation, and in seeking it you can make decisions that aren't consistent with your general good judgment. In other words, don't cheat on your significant other just because someone is paying attention to you.

You strongly dislike conflict, and will avoid it. Like an XPYG, you give so much of yourself to your partner that you feel dismissed and unappreciated if you don't get the same in return. But you internalize your feelings more and have a hard time getting over them. You don't *want* to cheat -- you just keep finding yourself in vulnerable situations. But you'll stay with your partner in the long run from guilt and a desire to please.

Your sex life will always be hot. You are one of the rare people who can keep the fires of passion going forever -- if you find a good match. Find another XSYG and you will never need (or want) anyone else again.

Hmm, this is surprisingly accurate. The only thing that's not spot-on is the bit about fidelity. I've never had a problem staying faithful - I just don't want anyone else when I've got something good going on, and when it's not good, I don't stay around long enough to get to where I'd want to be wandering. I've been cheated on a few times, but frankly I don't care so much about monogamy and it wasn't a big deal. As long as I'm getting what I need, I don't care about extracurricular activities, as long as we can remain honest with each other.

The lying thing though... I guess I do lie well and easily. Just not that often. But I'm a pretty good bullshitter, mostly for entertainment value. And I like to think I'm helping others build critical thinking skills. Heh.

Ooo I like! :)

I'm so not a bullshitter at all. I can't lie.

You'd prefer something more like: "those idiots deserve it"?

hahaha. the long-suffering much-repressed elitist in me would actually like that quite a bit.

I suspect that you are less inclined to internalize your feelings than the description suggests. I find you to be an excellent communicator with respect to your inner states.
