Are you a Complicated Girl?
Posted on

“Filipino men like uninteresting girls because they’re intimidated by anything they don’t think they can control. Kasi if the girl is rather unique, it means they have a strong personality. From my observation, Filipino men cannot handle girls with a lot of personality. Mahilig sila sa sunod-sunuran. Think: a girl who will look pretty and occasionally give a ladylike laugh as she looks on while you and your drinking buddies have a drunken good time. Actually, better yet, she’s the one serving the drinks to you and your buddies. From what I’ve seen, Filipina girls with strong personalities are either single, married to/dating foreigners, or married to/dating Filipino men who are quite unconventional themselves.”

According to this Complicated Girl Index, I am only 79.5% complicated—shocking!!
Now take the quiz. Give yourself 1 point for each of the 100 traits listed below.
Give yourself .5 if it only half applies. If you score 75 and up, you’re complicated.
Post your scores below and tell me what I missed.

[…] 10:21AM “Kung may isang bagay na natutnan ko sa iyo ay ang pagiging totoo at ang pagiging simple. Dahil ako talagang hirap na hirap maging simple.” — Kris Aquino (I remember her declaring in Morning Girls (the one with Korina Sanchez), that she is not SIMPLE girl. She should take the Complicated Girl Index Test.) […]

I got 66%. A lot of the things in the list don’t apply to me as I haven’t lived in the Philippines for close to 10 years now but I think I am complicated. My English hubby calls me his ‘high-maintenance wife’ – buti na lang indulgent sya. Ha!

I had a Filipino bf before my English-bf-now-hubby and I asked the ex-bf why we didn’t end up together. He told me because he likes someone who ‘follows’ him (READ: sunud-sunuran!) – well, that can never be me! 😉

I am happy with who I ended up with. Buti na lang!

I agree with someone’s previous post here…this is not a standard complicated girl checklist but a Chuva-complica-list…it’s too tailor-made for you. A lot doesn’t apply to me plus more girls but I am married to a foreigner ( a couple of months older than me) and I am definitely one domineering woman but doing it  lovingly subtly, and strategically to get my way.  [Reply]dontaskmetosmile Reply:June 14th, 2011 at 8:26 PMThe more I think about it, the more I believe that it’s impossible to come up with the definitive Complicated Girl (woman?) checklist/index.

The more I think about it, the more I believe that it’s impossible to come up with the definitive Complicated Girl (woman?) checklist/index. I realized that when I came up with my own. There are just too many iterations of the complicated girl, because, well, they’re complicated. 

Which is the exact opposite of the simple girl. Their, errrrrm, simplicity, makes them easier to define.

And so here we go. My very own Complicated Girl Index: http://wp.me/pYNKN-d3 for the girl who isn’t on Ms. C’s budget. Hahaha. And doesn’t have kids and a husband, too.

so I got 40.1% for the Complicated Girl test and 32% for the Simple Girl test… making me NORMAL… oh fuck! I’m safe AND boring! but i do hope there would be a single complicated girl test with additional categories from Winnie Chan and Jude Mancuyas…if their categories would be included, i guess i’d pass the complicated girl test. (di papaawat… sorry naman). I refuse to be categorized as safe AND boring HAHA! 🙂 confused mode tuloy ako.

38.5. I scored low on the Simple Girl Index too. I guess this means I’m just right. 😀

Would you mind if make an index of my own that’s less specific to you? And more applicable to single girls, maybe? And those with, ehem, a lesser budget? Haha.

May I add the following: – “her closet is five times the size of her husband’s solitary closet”, but still can’t find anything to wear! – has a shoe shelf/ shoe closet/ stacked boxes of shoes with pictures posted on the outside – has lots of gadgets but rarely uses them, only uses her cellphone – has different colored pens for different uses – has a secret credit card – knows and gets excited at all the sales, but then hates it because of the crowd – has a perfume/ makeup kit in each of these places: at home, in… Read more »

Anoba Cecile! I took Grass’ test. I got low. I took your test. I got low din. What am I then? And I don’t think I’m a unique snowflake either, I know lots of girls like me! Maybe I should make my own quiz.

I don’t know how some factors here apply to being “complicated”, most just applies to being a normal person, not complicated necessarily. The Simple Girl index is spot on though. 🙂

I’m surprised I’m a complicated girl as I always thought I am simple. I scored 75.5. No wonder I’m single.

percentage-wise, i’m more of a complicated girl than a simple one.  i have a bit of a problem with #19 though. they say you can tell a lot about a person’s character by how they treat people they don’t have to treat well – waiters, security guards, cashiers included – especially when these people mess up. A rule of thumb that has served me well: “A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a good person.“ [Reply]Cie Cisneros Reply:June 12th, 2011 at 11:12 PMit really says a lot about you if you’re rude to… Read more »

it really says a lot about you if you’re rude to the people mentioned – you’re not complicated you’re just plain rude and not a very nice person.

Well, the item said “has no patience”. It doesn’t automatically mean you’re rude. Just because someone is raising their voice or frowning doesn’t mean they’re not a good person or they’re impolite.  You can be disappointed/angry about poor service without being rude.  I know I’ve been. This (http://dontaskmetosmile.wordpress.com/2010/08/18/i-swear-this-happened/) was my experience with a call center agent. Granted, I shouldn’t have hung up on her at the end, but other than that I think I don’t think I was rude at all even if deep inside I wanted to reach through the phone and strangle the agent na.

For the exercise part, Tracy Anderson Method, pwede?

I’m not a complicated girl either, although I’m more complicated (41%) than I am simple (12.5%). It seems to me, though, that the complicated girl needs a bigger bank account than the simple one. Haha.

Also, I think if you’re from UP, +1.

A complicated girl never settles for a PM. It always has to be MM or GM. Plus 10 points if you know the meaning of PM, MM and GM.
