“But Are We Compatible?”


I know how much you’ve enjoyed me turning my blog into a promotional tool. Unfortunately, this is the last day of the bidding, so next week I will back writing about the usual important issues that I normally blog about.

Many people have emailed me saying that they’d love to give money to V-Day, since it is such a worthy cause, but they are on the fence about going on a date with me. So many of you have been burned by going on bad dates with men who were completely WRONG for you. How can I assure you that our date with be fun? Who wants to BID good money to go on a crappy date? If only there was a way to SCIENTIFICALLY learn if you and I were compatible for this charity date.

Now, there is!

Thanks to the kind hearts of those at E-Harmoni, I have been licensed to use their official 5-point compatibility quiz. Take the quiz, then compare it to my answers. If we are compatible, you owe it YOURSELF to bid on me! Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet your soulmate!


Question 1: Do you enjoy eating food? Yes or No?

Question 2: Do you consider breathing a “necessity?” Yes or No?

Question 3: Would you rather make love on the beach or be tortured by Jack Bauer from the television show “24?”

Question 4: Does the sun set in the West? Yes or No.

Question 5: Which birthday gift would you prefer: A new widescreen TV or a piece of celery?

Neil’s answers: Yes, Yes, love on the beach, Yes, widescreen TV.

Thanks, E-Harmoni!

So, are we compatible? If at least 4 of your answers are the same as mine — you know what you must do!


  1. Mariana

    oh no, it looks like I fail the compatibility test!!! I’m crying…

  2. Rhea

    I think this competition is rigged!

  3. Cover Your Mouth

    I don’t know. Jack Bauer’s hot, so it depends what they mean by “torture”.

  4. Two Roads

    Considering there are only 3 questions you can answer yes to everyone is going to fail your compatibility test. Hey, I’m good with numbers and I want you to find someone who is compatible with you. Please revise the scoring system to give yourself better odds of finding that special woman! 🙂

  5. The Cynical Girl

    Does my bid have to include airfare?

  6. tiff

    I’m with the cynical girl….

    Also – I totally passed this quiz.

  7. Neil

    Thanks Two Roads. Fixed it.

  8. Yasamin

    ya know, i have no idea who you are… but after reading this post i’ve come to the conclusion that people just don’t do things to be kind anymore. I mean It’s for charity for pity’s sake!

    regardless of getting the date or not, it’s for a much worthy cause and that is what should be spuring the bidding. not the actual prize.


  9. better safe than sorry

    omg, it’s like we were made for each other!!!

  10. Neil

    Well, Yasamin, you do make one good point. I haven’t written enough about V-day. You can read more about it HERE.

    I look forward to going on the charity date with you, Yasamin!

  11. Miss Syl

    1. Yes
    2. Yes
    3. Yes
    4. No. The sun rises and sets on Neil Kramer.
    5. widescreen TV

    Damn. Looks like I only got 3 out of 5.

  12. momentary academic

    I would have bid on you, Neil. Here’s hoping that you have a wonderful date!

  13. ms. sizzle

    …and we could have been so happy. alas, my love of celery and disdain for sand in delicate places means we are not meant to be.

  14. Neil

    Thanks everyone who participated in the bidding. I can’t wait to see who won me! Remember to read up more about V-Day.

  15. tamarika

    Now remember your promise? If I pay extra, Sophia gets to come on the date too. And, you know. Just put *me* in the back seat!

  16. V-Grrrl

    Tamarika, he can’t bring Sophia on the date because he only uses 2 for 1 coupons. But hey, maybe you could set Sophia up with your husband!

    P.S. I think it’s MIGHTY INTERESTING that the guy drawing the highest bids at the auction is MARRIED. This says a lot about what women want.

  17. BA

    It’s not East? And am I really expected to resist the celery???


  18. Tatyana

    Tried and true, V-GRRL, tried and true…

  19. tamarika

    I don’t know. I don’t know if I want to share them. My husband has to find his own party! I’ve worked hard for this!

    Am not sure if it’s what wom”en” want as much as what wom”an” want … : )

    Time will tell …

  20. cruisin-mom

    enough shameless plugs Neil, you are lightyears ahead of all the boys.

  21. Yasamin

    lol i’ve read all about it. i just think its such a trip when people immediately forget what its all about and get sucked into what they win. maybe that’s just me though. i think i’m livin in the wrong world.

    and it wasn’t me who won you. i bid on my pal px as a kindness to him and to battered women everywhere which he lives clear across the world from me in which you live actually closer. but i didnt do it for him to take me out (my boyfriend would shit a brick) i did it because i know what it feels like to be hit by a man.

    boy i’ll tell ya, if it wasn’t for organizations like this, i’d still have bruises.

  22. Churlita


    That is too funny. Did Sophia pass the compatability test, or is she hot for Jack Bauer and celery too?

  23. notcarrie

    Yasamin- You outbid me;) But you’re right…it’s for a great cause.

    Thanks again, Neil!
