Mostly A’s: Acts of Service
If your boo is willing to go to Jefe’s for your first date, they have delivered the ultimate act of service. You value when your partner shows that they care about you, especially in the form of completed psets or warm tea from Brain Break.
Mostly B’s: Quality Time
If you chose mostly B’s, there’s nothing that makes you feel better than quality time with the people you love. You don’t mind waiting in line forever at Shake Shack if it means spending more time with your boo. And studying in Lamont isn’t (as much of) a chore when they’re with you<3
Mostly C’s: Words of Affirmation
“[insert name] has endorsed your skill on LinkedIn” means even more than “I love you.” Mostly C’s mean you cherish that your partner tells you how much they care about you, whether that means shouting over the noise in Tatte or telling you, “yeah, you do look good in your fake Canada Goose.”
Mostly D’s: Physical Touch
If you chose mostly D’s, cuddles are the way to your heart. You don’t mind crowded places like Zinneken’s, where you have the excuse to snuggle up to your boo. And an extracurricular where you show care through physical contact is right up your alley.
Mostly E’s: Receiving Gifts
If you chose mostly E’s, you’re high maintenance… and what about it? Thoughtful gifts are the easiest way to find (buy) the way into your heart. Everyone wins — you (with your new gift) and your boo (because they’ve got you)!
