About This Quiz

Relationships end all the time, and although it can be one of the toughest things that a human being can go through, it is a part of life, and you can either learn from it and move on or wallow in sadness wishing that things went differently.

People handle breaks up differently, and their reactions depend on the circumstances that caused the breakup as well as how the breakup went. Some of the most common reasons why couples break up include being away from each other for long periods of time, being cheated on, the lack of proper communication that leads to many arguments, and some people just lose interest over time. 

No matter the reason, breakups are very hard, and it can go one of two ways: good or bad, with the latter being more frequently reported. Whether you decide to do it via text, video call, or in person, no one wants to feel the rejection and loneliness that comes with the territory.
