About This Quiz

It is a scientific fact that cuddling is very good for you. This is not something we made up; it is something that has been exhaustively investigated using MRI machines and blood tests and the full arsenal of Science with a big S. Cuddling reduces stress hormones like cortisol and lowers your heart rate and your blood pressure, reducing your chances of stroke and heart attack. It increases "happy hormones" like oxytocin and dopamine, which improve your sense of wellbeing and fortify your immune system. It also boosts love hormones like vasopressin and estrogen, that bond a couple together and make you less like to stray from your relationship.

Still, not all cuddling suits everyone exactly the same way. The wrong sort of cuddle will only stress you out, and that's hardly conducive to the health and relationship benefits enumerated above. You have to find a way to cuddle that works for you; otherwise, it'll just become one more thing on your to-do list, and then it will be onerous at best.

That's why it is imperative to identify your personal cuddle style. Do you like to initiate the cuddle, or have your boo do it? When do you need cuddles, where, and for how long? Let's find out!
