What Country Song is Your Love Life?
Just the other day, I was having a conversation with a couple of friends about how our respective love lives were going. One's in a serious relationship, one just moved to a new city, so is not much of anywhere at the moment, and me... well, I'm in and out of dating, but there hasn't been much in the way of a relationship for a while. But I was having a hard time figuring how to exactly describe it. Then this quiz showed up!
Gotta love internet quizzes. They ask a handful of vague, basic question, then sum up the entire essence of your being from an even smaller handful of preselected results. So I decided, "What the heck, might as well?" I hit the 'Let's Play' button and set out on a journey of generic self-discovery. Hashtag spoiler alert, I got Jake Owen's The One That Got Away. I made Sam take it, too. She got Dan + Shay's Show You Off.
First question... the obvious one. "Are You In a Relationship?" Well, no not at present. But there are three options for no, depending on the severity of the no. I'll go with the best fit option, "No, I'm a little shy." It's a little accurate, and more accurate than the others. On to the next one.
"You catch your significant other with someone else, what do you do?" Now, one of the options is "Assume the best, and talk about it later in private." Here's the thing, the "with someone else" isn't clearly defined. Are they just eating lunch? I eat lunch with married co-workers all the time. So obviously there's nothing to that. But are they WITH someone? Like caught red-handed? I think if they're going to even ask that question, that's what they're driving at. So that leaves me with "End it and plot revenge" or "Cry and send a break-up text." Neither are really me. I don't plot revenge. I just execute revenge when the opportunity knocks. Cry and text isn't me either. Yeah, I'll be sad and mopey, and I'd definitely end it.
Blah blah blah, more questions later, I'm not going to make you sit through this point-by-point with my answers. But yeah, I got to the end and had Jake Owen as the best song that described my love life.
If I got to pick my song? If someone just asked me, "Hey, what song best describes your love life and/or past relationships?" I'd probably go with one of two Billy Currington songs. Last year's hit It Don't Hurt Like It Used To, or, since most ended in relatively uncomplicated manners, this one
