Even though we won't notice around here for several days, it's the first day of summer.  Stop laughing, I'm serious!  A popular thing to do is go out and get ice cream (seriously, stop laughing it will warm up and stop raining, I think).  The type of ice cream your dates chooses may say something about your compatibility as this cheat sheet shows.


If the scoop is vanilla…

Vanillas are anything but, well, vanilla! These people are colorful risk-takers who set very high goals for themselves. This also impacts their romantic mindset: They much prefer relationships where they feel like they’re building a future together.

Most compatible with: Rocky-road revelers

Vanilla lovers are anything but, well, vanilla!

If the scoop is strawberry…

Strawberry pickers tend to be followers more than leaders and are happy working behind the scenes. They rarely fall head-over-heels in a flash, but once committed to a relationship, they’re in it for keeps.

Most compatible with: Other strawberry fans as well as people who prefer rocky road, vanilla or mint chocolate chip.

Double chocolate-chunk choosers like to be the life of the party and can’t stand being alone. They can require a lot of attention (read: needy) but give as much as they take, which makes for an intensely romantic relationship.

Most compatible with: Butter-pecan pickers

If the scoop is butter pecan…
