About This Quiz

Relationships can bring out our best and our worst qualities. It's not that we really change when we enter into a new relationship. It's that we find qualities becoming more prominent as we learn to care for each new partner. Relationships require us to take on new and exciting roles, but have you ever thought about what sort of relationship reputation you might have?

Think about, but do not dwell on, your last relationship. What would your ex have to say about you? Would he/she say that you are loving and nurturing, or would you be touted as someone who is cold and aloof? Throughout the relationship reputation quiz, we're going to ask you about the ways you behave and about the things you find yourself doing in relationships. While some scenarios might be too far from your possible reality, put yourself in that situation and tell us what you would do. Answering honestly will help us figure out what sort of relationship reputation might precede you.

It's okay to not have been the perfect partner in all of your relationships. Everyone has faults! But if you want to know how others see you in relationships, this quiz is the best thing you could ever do for yourself!
