Not exactly the dandy i'm looking for, but close. Someone like Des Esseintes, or maybe a Robert Ross (the canadian from Wilde's circle, not that movie star...sheesh) would be comfortable.

But, alas, i'm afraid a Gandalf Geisha was in order on this quiz... Hmm, I think he would bore me too much. Something along the lines of too much talk on too much of the same thing. Similar interests are not always the best thing... I like inviting an enemy to lunch, it's quite fun.

You're a GANDALF GEISHA!


Although once when I was making a list of the male literary characters I'm most fond of, I did realize that three out of the five were 13-18 years older than their wives!

Apparently, "I ADORE my ARAGORN!" I ain't complaining! (Even though it said that I should avoid men who shower all the time. )

Very fun quiz, Lush! I could waste countless hours with this thing.

More than two years later...

I used to Rock for Rosie (and I didn't really agree), but now I'm a Gandalf Geisha.

I think this is much more like it, except for the smoke thing. And I'm not worried about the hair-brushing - I have my own crazy hair to let him brush.

(Sorry, I can't help pulling an HI on this thread. That's a really neat quiz Lushie made.)

It has been really fun reading through this thread again and re-living the frustrations of old.

I had happily forgotten about the "Everybody Loves Eowyn Movement" that one encountered constantly back then, maybe I should take the test again and get the rigt result.(Galadriel)

I got Aragorn. Don't really know how well the description fits, except for the first sentence which is too true: "You're a totally intense individual."

Honestly though I don't think I could stand Aragorn very long. I would find him boring and he would find me silly and annoying.

I'm still a Gandalf Geisha. I don't know what's wrong with me... I guess Aganzir is allowed to laugh at me, seeing that she's one of those friends I mentioned when posting on this thread waaaaay back in 2005:

OMG

People still remember this quiz?! Ahh, the magic of the Internet.

I think I'll make another one this week. It won't be about dating, but it will be about... something.

P.S. It's been over three years, and I just re-took the quiz, not really remembering which answers lead to which characters (I remember the general outline of how I did it, but not the details).

I still got Legolas. And you know, my man has always been a total show-off. Particularly with a guitar. So it fits, oddly enough.

Btw, I've noticed that I used the word "totally" a lot while making this quiz. I might stay away from that on latter quizzes, but I make no promises. "Totally" is totally my thing.
