About This Quiz

We all have those special physical attributes that just make us swoon. For example, so you love a dashing smile or are you more of a foot person? Do dimples give you goosebumps or do you just love playing with someone's earlobes? While we all love those interesting and unique features on a partner, the fact is that not all those features are dominant traits, but you may be surprised which ones are and which of those dominant traits you seek out in a significant partner. 

What you look for in a partner has a little to do with your own family, your lifestyle, and of course that twisted double helix we like to call DNA. So, are you attracted to dimples because everyone in your family has them? Or, are you attracted to dimples because they are unique to you? Did you even know that dimples are a dominant trait? We bet you didn't.

From dominant traits like brown eyes and dark hair to an immunity to poison ivy (yep, that's a dominant trait), we look at your life, desires, tastes, and personality to answer the question you've always been curious about, "Which dominant trait do I most desire in a partner?" So, sit back, flick your earlobe, bat your eyes, or play with your dimples and see where this quiz will take you!
