About This Quiz

Relationships are easy if you've made all the mistakes already. Idealists can say that an ideal relationship should be all about codependency, but if you go down that road, as soon as either of you changes, the other will feel something is missing. Getting too needy is a quick way to become a relationship nightmare for any partner. It is also important to share interests, passions, and outlooks. 

If politics are your jam, you had better be with someone who sees eye to eye with you, or at least someone with an open mind. If you love fantasy movies, you had better be with a fellow geek or someone patient and understanding of your odd love of orcs. If you are a gym rat, your partner had better love kale, or at least not mind that your average dinner doesn't involve alfredo sauce and a bottle of wine.

Do you know how to throw your partner the perfect party? Can you get on with their families and their friends? There are so many variables in a relationship that sorting out how it all comes together would take a lengthy survey and an elaborate system to analyze all that date. The good news is that you are in luck because this quiz is exactly that.
