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?
