Default ABC News Quiz on Bad Boys (Good Morning America)

Are You Dating a Really Bad Guy?
The Keith Ablow Scare Questionnaire

June 8, 2006 — - Psychiatrist Keith Ablow joined Robin Roberts this morning on "Good Morning America" to give some solid, specific advice on how women can spot a really bad guy before they date or marry him.

Answer the following questions to see whether you're dating a bad guy.

1. Does he drink to excess or use illicit drugs?
2. Has he ever been arrested?
3. Does he have very few long-term friendships?
4. Is he intensely possessive?
5. Does he say negative things about ex-girlfriends or his ex-wife?
6. Do you get the sense your feelings and boundaries don't matter much to him?
7. Does he seem too good to be true?
8. Has he been violent with you or another woman?
9. Does he insist you are sleeping with other men when you're not?
10. Have you never met any family member of his despite being involved with him for a significant period of time?
Scoring:
If you answered yes to two questions, be worried.
If you answered yes to three questions, be scared.
If you answered yes to four or more questions, be very, very scared.
If you answered yes to just one of questions #8, #9 or #10, each counts as four positive responses (very, very scary).

DISCLAIMER
No quiz, of course, completely rules out dangerous behavior in your boyfriend, husband or partner. If you're worried about him, contact your local women's crisis center.

That test is full of crap. I said yes to the first two of them. However, in the 5 years I have been with the Hubbie, I have nothing to worry about. These type of round about test make me sick. Just like these mandatory minimums and Judicial Laws that let out Murderers and rapist in 5 to 7 years but folks who have not physically harmed anyone get 10-25 or even life. SHish! They need to come up with better test than that. Like one for those screwed up laws they have.

JJspenpal,I think it's great info that you've posted!If even one woman is touched by this it could make a big difference,and I'm willing to bet there are going to be ALOT of women who are going to see some signs that they might not have ever given a second thought.Of course there's also going to be that big group of women that recognize some of the things listed and ignore it,but all in all,...good informative post!

Well, we all get to answer YES to #2, so that only leaves one more before we should 'be worried'. Way I see it, we are all such intensely strong women to stand by our men while in prison, that it takes more to ruffle our feathers than those that fret when they break a nail.

ABC is running out of stories to report about. so now they are grasping at straws. of course they are going to downgrade anything about a inmate and then sterotype them as Scary..I am so sick of the NEWS!!

What is funny is that whoever writes these stories or quizzes, would never admit if they were to go thru the same type of experience or try to justify it if they did . It seems to me if you can write about something in depth & detailed & be considereed an authority on the subject, you had to have a little expereince in it!

Ladies, I think you're being a little defensive here. That quiz is just a general screen to start some thinking. And basically, it's running down the warning signs of highly narcissistic or antisocial behavior. It's not bashing, though I think probably you can answer yes to two or three of them without being unduly panicked.
