Here are the 4 questions of the Deadbeat Boyfriend Test, scored on a scale of 0-10, ten being the highest rating:
1. How often does he give you backrubs? Rate on frequency and quality.
Backrub is a general idea. The idea is that he likes to serve you and make you feel great.
2. How often does he cook for you? Rate on frequency and quality.
If he’s really not the cooking type (which is most guys), taking you out to dinner is an acceptable substitute – he can get a max score of 7 on that.
3. How satisfied are you with the sex?
4. How often does he tell you he loves you or otherwise lavish you with praise?
Until we have more scientific guidelines, here’s what I suggest:
Score of 34-40: A keeper! Good job. Now make him feel like the man he’s always wanted to be, and he’ll never leave you.
Score of 29-33: Ok, so this guy has potential but needs some brushing up. Maybe he’s gotten too caught up in work, or maybe he just needs some encouragement from you. Give him some hints and see if he rises to the occasion.
Score of 25-28: This is borderline. Neglect has already become a habit here, and unless he really steps up and starts making you a priority in his life, not an option, you need to dump his ass in a week.
Score less than 25: Dump him. This is not a decision that needs to be delayed or regretted. Why? Because you deserve better, that’s why. It’s not about him – it’s about you. And my job is to make sure you’re happy and fulfilled.
