Is He/She the One? Take the E101 Quiz and Find Out!

posted by on March 6 at 13:23 PM


Being a total girl—I love you, Erica, my sister!—my absolute favorite new mag is Engagement 101. I wrote about this slick new publication last week—it’s just packed with tons of great advice for engaged couples!—and mentioned, in passing, E101’s are-you-ready-to-pop-the-question quiz on page 26. Now you can take the quiz yourself by clicking here.

Just an honest question... Do you guys care at all about copyright infringement? I'm not sure you would want people posting full page scans of your articles on their websites, especially if they did it under the guise of selling advertisements.

Why is "he doesn't seem to like kids" in the "Run away and don't look back..." category? That's a big plus in my book. Then again, maybe I'm not exactly in Engagement 101's target demographic.

Hey, SWEET! You rescued me from the most dire of predicaments I posted about in the last bridal rag post, namely never being able to know, without the quiz on page 26, whether (s)he was the The One. Savage, my savior!

There is no way that guy on the cover is straight. Just no way at all. He could however be an evangelical pastor...

I like how this quiz assumes potential married couples don't already live together. ("He comes over to your place during the day....","If he wants to come over..."). That's so quaint and old timey!

Uh, it's not THAT slick. Some of those typefaces are newsletter-quality. And dressing these folks in all black and white is a nightmare for cover-tease readibility.

It kinda looks like one of those free real estate listings pamphlets you can pick up at the door at QFC.

I do want to pick this up, however, to see what the proposal-industry experts have to say.

This could have been written by your average 13-year-old girl (and that's probably part of their target audience.) I particularly like the typo under 3-b: He "let's you yell".

That rag is making me throw up into the back of my throat. If I don't close the quiz tab, vomit will shortly projectile spray out of my nose.

It's hard to believe that the quiz isn't an ad for some new pill dreamt up by big pharma.
