About This Quiz

If you can decide to take this quiz, why can't you decide to ask them out? Them refers to that special someone who popped in your brain at their mention. Whether it be forbidden love, a high school crush or a simple Tinder match, dating can be difficult. Half of all singles prefer finding partners via online dating, a realm that we're STILL working the kinks out of. Some of these websites and apps have upgrades that can change your location, remove your age or show you only the people that have already shown interest in you. When you subtract the coincidence from dating, it creates an avenue for more intentional relationships. Your feelings may be in the right place, but are theirs?

Many people still meet the old-fashioned way, too. Perhaps they live in your apartment complex, they sit in the pew next to yours or you've gone to school together for years. How do you know when it's the right time to risk it all? 

We've put together a quiz that will show you what the next best move might be in a potential relationship. The stars may or may not align for you today, but there's only one way to find out!
