Would You Pass This Woman’s Pen-And-Paper Dating Test? 

In this, our glorious future, many single people opt for a dating test run by algorithms to find their perfect match: Answer a few questions about yourself, set your own parameters for your ideal mate, and let the internet do the work for you.

For Minnesota State University student Taylor Sele, the old-fashioned way is working out just fine. Or, about as fine as online dating does. She’s created her own analog version of Tinder. Instead of swiping a screen, potential suitors flip through her paper questionnaire.

The questions range from pretty fair compatibility concerns, such as “Do you smoke?” and “If you had to work on solving one big world problem for the rest of your life, what would it be?” to the totally arbitrary: “What’s your favorite TV show?” or “What’s your favorite ice cream?” Apparently, vanilla is a dealbreaker.

The grill session gets more serious as the questionnaire continues, with topics including gay marriage, abortion, politics, who you voted for, and what your biggest regrets are. She hands these quizzes out around campus and posts them to social media.

“If they don’t like dogs or choose the wrong ice cream – vanilla is a potential deal breaker,” she said, according to the Mirror. “Quite a few guys thought it was weird and a lot of them thought I was crazy.”

Whether she’ll find her soulmate at the end of this experiment is unclear. She’s been on half a dozen dates so far, and is still searching. Time to make another trip to the Kinkos for more quizzes.
