About This Quiz

A long time ago a philosopher named Plato wrote about soulmates. According to the story he told, there was a time when humans were actually four-legged, four-armed monsters that rolled around like wagon wheels and Zeus was not a fan of us at all. Zeus split us in half because reasons and the result was that we're wandering the Earth with our two legs and two arms looking for the person who completes us. When you find that person, that's your soulmate, the other half of who you were always meant to be.  It's a bit of a goofy story and he didn't literally believe that it was just to illustrate a point - we all have a soulmate. There's a person out there who knows you as well as they know themselves. Someone you're just meant to fit with and who you were always meant to be with.

Whether or not you believe in soulmates doesn't really matter, so long as you believe in love. If you believe in that, and you love someone, you can really come to know that person in ways no one else ever could or will. If you're in a relationship like that, you might wonder just how well you truly know your partner. Lucky for you we're about to find out!
