About This Quiz

Being in love is one of the greatest things in the world, as anyone who has experienced it can tell you. However, the caveat here is that being in love is only lovely if you love someone who deserves your love, and who loves you back in a way that is specifically meaningful and supportive to you. Love is not a generic thing: it's a set of actions and words and feelings that shape a relationship between two people, hopefully to their mutual happiness and fulfillment.

That means it's very important to find the right sort of partner for you, so that you don't have to miss out on all the upsides of love or waste time on the wrong person. After all, prospective partners are going to be screening for what they're seeking as well, and that means that you can end up being seduced by someone who's absolutely wrong for you if you haven't put up a few good boundaries of your own ahead of time.

That's why we've put together this quiz, to help you figure out who's right for you, so that you can save time when the wrong person crosses your path - and then enjoy the right one when they come along!
