About This Quiz
The start of a relationship is always the most exciting part. Fiery romances and butterflies are the best, but how do you know if you are ready to take the next step? Committing to a relationship is a serious thing for everyone involved. You are signing up to meet the family, spend tons of your free time with their friends and do the things they love to do, even if you hate them. But if it's right, those "chores" feel like blessings when you get to spend all your time with that girl or guy you're falling for.
But there's more to consider than the initial rainbows and butterflies. From cooking for them to spending all your extra cash on gifts for them, it is hard work making someone else happy. There will be fights and disagreements about major life decisions. There will be stress and communication problems that seem impossible to work through. All of the sudden, that perfect boyfriend or girlfriend doesn't seem so perfect anymore, and you begin to wonder if they were right for you all along. However, when it's worth it, being in a relationship is one of the most rewarding, life-changing parts of life. So let's figure this out together, shall we? How ready are you to DTR?

A few times, and they all went really well.
Yes, but I'm not sure they're the right one yet.
No, I've just been crushing on them.
Have you met the person's friends?
All of them, and I love them!
Does their roommate count?
Have you met their family yet?
Yes! I feel like I'm part of the family already.
Yes, some of them. They were really nice.

Yes, once or twice. It went well.
Not yet, but I've been wanting to introduce them.
Nope. I have some concerns about them meeting.
Have you been to a concert or sporting event together?
Yes! It was so fun. We're already planning the next outing.
We went to one together, and it was a blast.
We've talked about an upcoming event and have even looked at tickets, but nothing is set in stone.
No, we don't really have the same interests.
Do you two text every single morning?
I wake up to a text from them each day.
Most days unless one of us is really busy
Not always, but if we're awake at the same time I'll send one.
Usually we don't text until later in the day.
Have you pet or house sat for this person?
Yes! I'm always there anyway, so it wasn't much different.
One time I did, for a couple of days.
I haven't, but they haven't really needed me to.
No, I'm not sure I would even want to.
Have you left a toothbrush at their place?

Have you cooked them dinner?
We cook together all the time!
We only go out to dinner.
Have you binge-watched a Netflix series together?

Do you daydream about them?
All the time. I can't stop thinking about them.

Does your best friend approve?
Yes, they get along pretty well.
