A single woman has told how she was accused of being 'too pretty' by a man after failing to find love on a dating website.
I took the test and scored 67 out of 100 QI points, and according to the site that makes me “an intriguing, colorful character.” (I’d like to think that 100 out of 100 QI points makes you Zoeey Deschanel.)
