    Come up with a theory for why it was subpar and test that theory. Repeat if necessary.
    Pass it off as a fluke and move on.

Can We Guess If You’re In A Relationship With A Scientist?

You got: Yes!

You are dating a hardcore scientist — probably a physicist or chemist. Not only are they wildly smart and informative, but they are precise almost to a fault in their professional life. Just as importantly, they are damn precise the bedroom, too.

Yes!

You got: Probably!

You are likely dating a scientist. Probably not a physicist or astronomer or anything like that. More likely than not you are dating a geologist, or — if you are lucky — a biologist of some kind. Whatever they are, they are not afraid to get down and dirty with you in bed and they can keep you fascinated for hours the rest of the time, too.

Probably!

You got: Kinda!

It sounds like you are dating an engineer — a person who is wildly smart and who utilizes scientific principles on the regular. Your bae is more likely to build you something crazy impressive or solve a nagging problem than they are likely to ponder the ultimate truth in life. You aren't too concerned with that ultimate truth when dealing with the well-oiled machine that is your partner is in the sack, though.

Kinda!

You got: Nope!

Doesn’t sound like your bae is a scientist. That’s fine, though, what your relationship may lack in precision and rigor it more than makes up for in spontaneity, creativity, and happily unsettled arguments. Your sex life may be unpredictable, but that’s probably why it’s so hot, anyway.

Nope!
