What type of marine creature is your boyfriend?

As they say, there are plenty of fish in the sea. The question is, did you get the right catch? This Valentine’s Day, we run through a few of the possible types that might have bitten your bait – in a manner of speaking, of course.

Pointing five ways all at once, he is not exactly good with directions. And like most men (so this is not a unique trait), he simply refuses to ask.

He does not have a nasty bone in his body, and you can often see through him (so who says all men are hard to read?). Oh, and the way he moves! So gentle. So hypnotic. You may well be tempted to reach out and touch those dangly bits… Big mistake, girlfriend.




Land or water – he cannot decide. He wants the best of both worlds. Two words: commitment issues.




This one enjoys hanging out with his pod – or posse – a little too much, poking their noses into every nook and cranny, popping their heads out of the water to whistle at birds. On good days, his behaviour strikes you as playful. On not so good days, you wish him a little less flippant.




He has two arms but it can sometimes feel like eight (especially when you’re alone together). Apparently he has a knack for betting on soccer matches.



In possession of sleek good looks and one hell of a sporting grin, he is always on the move and on the make, as ready to give chase as to sink his teeth into any opportunity that swims by. It is easy to get caught up in the feeding frenzy.

Not only does he insist on living inside a shell, he gets snappy at anyone who tries to come close. And do not expect him to share anything with you either – he is a little shellfish.



Fossil records suggest the nautilus has not evolved much during the last 500 million years. So what makes you think dating him a few months is enough to change him?

It’s all tongue in cheek of course. Here’s wishing you and your partner, a Happy Valentine’s Day!
