Love Island 2018 was fueled with drama, budding friendships, a lot of re-coupling and loyalty…? Hmmm, well either way it consumed our every thought, Whatsapp message, conversation and meme we tagged our mates in. Oh yes, it was a big one. In fact, you probably found yourself gossiping about Dani, Megan, Wes and Laura like they were your next door neighbours. And the best news is, Love Island 2019 is almost here!
But as you sat each day and watched religiously between the hours of 9pm to 10pm, did you ever wonder which Love Island cast member was most like you? Perhaps you found a connection with an islander that every other member of the nation seemed to disagree with, because you are secretly two peas in a pod. Don’t pretend you didn’t, because we all did!
If you’re still not sure where you would fit in the villa, we’re here to tell you which Love Islander best matches your personality and who might be your ‘type on paper’.
Happy to move from partner to partner, settling down is not the player’s style. Why stick with just one person when there are so many out there, right? In the age of Tinder and Bumble what does monogamy even mean anyway. This indecisive character is content playing the field and sliding into everyone’s DMs.
Are you a player?
Does the thought of settling down bore you? If you always find yourself sneaking out in the morning or texting multiple people at once, you certainly fit the bill. Players like you always have one eye on the door to see if someone better will walk through it – and you’ve no hesitations moving on if they do.
Your love Islander match: Megan Barton Hanson and Adam Collard
You know what they say, don’t hate the player, hate the game, right? Your perfect match is commitment-phob Megan Barton Hanson who had her fair share of the Love Island lads, and Adam Collard who wasn’t afraid to make his move when someone better came along.
Always in the middle of every argument, drama or DMC going, the peacock loves being centre of attention. If a relationship isn’t loud and public, fuelled by jealous rage, huge rows and an over the top apology, then they don’t want to know. The peacock is at their best when all eyes are on them, which of course they usually are because they’re making a scene.
Are you a peacock?
Do you love being the centre of attention? If you can always be found strutting about, getting involved in drama whether it’s yours or not, you my friend are like the peacock, putting on a big display to attract attention and make sure everyone is looking at you (though sometimes for the wrong reasons).
Your love Islander match: Georgia Steel
Dead set on everyone knowing how ‘loyal’ she was, Georgia wasn’t afraid to get involved in the drama and bitching of the house, and if you dare question her motives – well, she was just being loyal, OK!
The joker can remove any negative vibes from the room and cheer you up instantly. A hilarious prankster they love nothing more than making their friends and family smile. A little bit less confident in themselves, they use humour to make you fall in love with them, which you will because they are hilarious. The most important thing to the joker is finding someone they can have a laugh with, whether that’s a friend or partner.
Are you a joker?
If you’re always cracking jokes, playing pranks and constantly being told how funny you are then you’re the joker of the group. If people can’t help but smile when you’re around it’s because your funny personality and positive vibes are infectious.
Your love Islander match: Jack Finch
Less confident than the rest of the lads, Jack seemed a little coy at first. But his funny nature, banter and jokes were enough to secure him the lovely Dani for the entire season.
The genuine one will drop anything to help their friends or family, but will also call them out if necessary. A genuinely caring soul they just want happiness and to spread positivity to those around them. Plus they try to avoid drama where possible and don’t like to make a big scene. They’re just happy being them and they accept everyone else for who they are.
Are you genuine?
If you’re not one for getting bogged down in gossip or drama and you’re much happier when everyone is just relaxed and having a good time, then your personality match could be a genuine one. You prefer people to be themselves and you’re always there to lend a hand when someone needs you.
Your love Islander match: Dani Dyer
Coupled with Jack from the start, the pair made a genuine connection. Dani was not interested in the bitching, backstabbing and re-coupling, but she was there to comfort her house mates when they needed a shoulder to cry on.
Into all things peace, love and harmony, the hippy just wants everyone to get along and find world peace. Not afraid to whip out a guitar and start a sing along, or share their views on the planet and human rights, they can sometimes be referred to as the ‘hippy dippy kind’. They mean well of course, even if you don’t always agree with what they’re saying.
Are you a hippy?
Are you the first to share your opinion, especially when it comes to being vegan, animal rights or plastic waste? Then you might be considered the hippy of the group. But don’t take this as a bad thing, there’s nothing wrong with being passionate about the world around you.
Your love Islander match: Eyal Booker
Despite not wanting to come across as a preacher (or even be seen to use the word preacher too often), Eyal wasn’t afraid to share his opinion, especially when he felt passionately about something.
So which Love Islander are you and your friends?
