About This Quiz

When it comes to the dating world, guys and gals are often spending time with people who aren't their type. Though you might have heard of the saying, "opposites attract," it's always important to find someone that you're at least somewhat compatible with. This is referred to as "romantic chemistry," which is the spark between two people in a relationship. Sometimes, this spark is ignited through mutual interests and in-depth conversations, but some people can simply feel this through their instincts. If you don't sense this kind of "fireworks" feeling after the first few dates, then they're probably not the ideal person for you.

So, what do we mean by "types" of people? Well, think about someone that you may have been attracted to in the past. What stood out about them? Was it their funny personality or their serious demeanor? Would you classify them as a nerd, athlete or someone who is just plain popular? These types of people will not only grab your attention, but they may be the key to making your ideal relationship an everlasting one. So if you're curious about what type of person you should be dating, then take our romantic relationship quiz right now!
