Let's take a non-judgmental look at our minds, our perspectives.
Let's behave like our 13 year old selves when we were on Livejournal, or...god forbid...the great Xanga.
This survey doesn't end with "You are a ______!" and there are no traps; I'm just curious how you, the AltTRP crowd, will answer, individually. No wrong answers; don't even be RP with this. (Not yet, anyway.)
I wrote this out of curiosity and to glean some self-perspective by seeing how others answer.
If you want something more substantive as to what prompted me, I guess I'm interested in how TRP is very "Be your own guy, you don't need an LTR," but, how by alienating yourself in that way, it can also cause one to look down at any kind of LTR, seeing it as a male defeat, instead of something else it could be, like mirroring, self-discovery through an other, etc. But this quiz is very open-ended and who knows what side of the rainbow you'll come out of after doing it.
Don't worry about sounding corny, basic, a chump, That Guy, or even blue pill. Feel free to say things like "I just haven't met the right person" and other things that TRP analysis would point and say "bruh, let me tell you what's really happening" and call you out on. Speak from the heart and we can be analytical after.......or not! Call yourself out after if it makes you feel better.
This is the silly-putty of our subconscious, elicited with a narcissist-y fun tween style quiz; we can see where we're at by looking at our answers without judgment. Again, I didn't think of what you really are after each question; I just wrote them.
Masculinity is king, but it's a diary slumber party tonight, grrlz.
Answers like this are no fun: 1b 2a 3c
Answers like this are better: (copy the whole thing into a comment box and delete as needed. type too.)

3. If your relationship style could be different, would you have it be different? perhaps in a certain way?
a) yes, I'm not happy with how it is. you, see _____. (e.g., I want more sex, I want to be a master with guys, I want my LTRs to last longer, I want my boyfriend to respect me, I want to be someone's bitch instead of the man, I wanna be the man instead of the girl in the exchange/relationship, I want to move on and not be the one moved on from)
b) I could technically change, I have the option, but I wouldn't be feeling it by switching it up. I'm fine the way situations turn up with different guys I see. I mean, I could __, but, _.
