About This Quiz

Relationships aren't easy ... or are they? The truth is, when you and your SO have shared interests, it's a lot more likely that you two will stay together. That's because having the same hobbies, passionately held opinions and tastes acts as "glue" for your relationship, ensuring that you always have something to talk about or do together. Physical attraction is great, and possessing similar hopes for the future is good too, but we believe that couples who hate the same TV shows have what it actually takes to make it over the long haul.

If you agree with our theory, you're going to love this quiz! We've come up with a series of questions about your relationship, each one designed to diagnose what brings you and your SO together. Whether you're the kind of people who never miss an art opening or that couple who paint their faces for game day, this quiz can figure it out. All you have to do is answer each question honestly, telling us the truth about your habits instead of what you wish they were. The more truthful you are, the more accurate your results will be.

Our quiz supercomputer is standing by, ready to guess why you're in love. Want to put it to the test? Let's get quizzing!
