16% There's no chance anyone's going to find me in a graveyard after dark.

And I'm Sunrise:

That's surprsingly accurate, to be honest. Sunrise is my favourite time of day. And sunset. I like twilight, that sense of transition.

Midnight as well. I'm starting to think that these survey results might not be very scientifically rigorous. ':-|

44%
You definitely have some gothicness going on, but you're far from being a stereotypical goth.
You enjoy certain elements of goth culture, but you're not going to be into something simply because it's goth.
It's likely that you're the type of person who totally defies labels. Good for you!
If you are into something, it's because you sincerely love it. Not because it projects a certain image.


Yeah, that's accurate. The score's down to metal crossover and being a fan of the macabre. I go to the Chiller Theatre convention twice a year, and I'm still friends with several active or retired 100% goths. If I wasn't married, I'd date a goth girl in a New York minute, even if she smokes clove cigarettes and her perfume smells like burning leaves. The song reference should be worth another 4%

Back in the day, for a chance to get laid I went to a Cure concert(w/Love&Rockets and The Pixies), but they generally suck, or so I thought at the time. In hindsight I should have told her I enjoyed the show and felt we'd connected on a spiritual level...

It is. And it is not. When it is, and when it is not, is the question or the answer, or both or neither.

It's all schoolgirl goth crap in this survey. Not one mention of the real goth groups of the 80s like The Anti-Nowhere League, or The Damned (and the special rule with The Damned is that it's pre captain Sensible's happy talk single)

4% because I had heard of the Goths historically. Been in graveyards many a time though, used to live next door to one and as kids we always used to have to go in to get the football back. the other one near the pubs, well, different story, but goth birds enjoy putting out in a graveyard.... :wink:

Well that's not strictly true is it? By the time you've dug them up they aren't really in a fit state to argue are they?

68%, although I've always been more of a punk than a goth.

Humph, Fields of the Nephilim were from Stevenage, not Sheffield.

No mention of the BatCave, Specimen or Alien Sex Fiend, however I would question the Damned and the Anti-Nowhere League, punk yes, but I certainly wouldn't put them down as a prime example of Goth.
