About This Quiz

Many couples out there come together because of different factors. Some couples say that they are compatible in many ways, be it in their likes and dislikes, their hobbies and habits, or their culinary and pop culture sensitivities. For other couples, the "opposites attract" adage works well, for they want to thrive in a relationship that has a lot of diversity happening between them. Be it a difference of age, social status, even nationality and other such categories, these couples are very cool with this kind of tandem, societal standards and norms be damned. 

And then, there are also those couples who like the "us against the world" kind of approach, where their tandem is somewhat overly dramatic or maybe too comic to be true. And often, these couples are aware of what the people around them say about their partnership.

So many couples, so many kinds, eh? But these "types" are actually great plots for movies, don't you think? Each of these premises is actually a kind of film template already, so it's no wonder that real-life couples seem to identify themselves with the situations of cinematic couples that they watch on the big screen.

How about you? Are you and your significant other somewhat like the movie couples out there, especially those from '70s flicks? Well, take this fun quiz and see for yourself!

If you could fly, would you take your significant other to different romantic cities in the world?
Of course! No need for an airplane or visa! Cool!
Well, I can always fly, business class at that, so yeah, I’ll take my significant other anywhere my dad’s credit card could afford.
My car can fly! So yeah, I’ll give my sweetie a ride!
Maybe, to see different cemeteries and stuff like that.

Would you go out to a snowy park and goof off there with your sweetie during the winter season?
Well, my partner sorta lives in a Fortress of Solitude up in the North Pole, I think, so that’s not a fun option anymore.
Yes! We love doing that. Simple joys, you know.
Um, only if my fellow toughie or snobbish pals won’t see us doing that mushy stuff…
Well, we could steal a truck and a plant maybe, as a goof off activity, but not during winter.

Do you and your partner belong to different social cliques?
More like planetary quirks, but hey, I don’t mind.
Well, we belonged to different colleges, so that’s about it.
Yup, but I didn’t know at the beginning.
More like different age groups, I think.

Do you and your sweetheart have a huge age gap, like decades apart?
No, just electrons and neurons and protons apart, I think… but it’s cool.
Nope
Nah, we’re both in the same year level.
Very! I think we’re more than 50 years apart!

The first time you met, did you immediately tell your partner your real name?
No! I like keeping it in suspense at first.
Of course. That’s very important to establish a connection.
Yeah! But just our nicknames, so it’s more cool.
Yep

Do you folks spend time just cuddling on the couch and reading books?
Maybe cuddling for a bit and reading the newspaper issue we helped put out… until our editor calls us!
Yes! It's our favorite hobby, but also because we got a lot of college readings to finish.
Nah, we’d rather drive around and hang out where the others hang out.
We spend time talking more.

Do you and your partner love movie musicals, and singing along to them?
Not really an option, since we’re both busy with our line of work.
Well, one of us studied classical music in college, so I guess that’s a yes.
Definitely! We got chills for it, and they’re multiplying!
That’s too positively bubbly, no.

Is it OK that your partner seems to be obsessed with death and dying?
We don’t have that issue as a couple. We’re all about saving the world!
Not obsessed, but more like hiding it from me!
Nah, we’re more concerned of our reputation with our friends or circles.
Very much so. That’s our common bond actually.

Do you like it when your partner saves you from danger, or you save your partner from danger?
Of course! We’re both allergic to death and dying, so that’s great!
It’s an idealistic premise, but it’s okay.
Sure, but we keep those kinds of things a secret from our friends who might judge us…
It depends. Does it involve dying? We’ll think about it…

Did you and your partner meet in a case of “love at first sight?"
More like “Where did you come from” at first sight! Hard to see when you’re falling off a building!
Oh yes, definitely! It was just… so pure.
Well, maybe crush at first sight is the right term for us, then everything flowed from there…
Not really, we met out of morbid curiosity.

Did you and your partner meet during the summer holiday break?
No, we didn’t. We met during a regular workday.

Yup! Ah, those summer nights…
Nah. I think it was a different season.

We haven't arrived at a mutual decision about that, yet. Let me think about it.

Will you still go out with your partner if you discovered that he/she is a superhero?
Of course! That’s such a dreamy dream date!
Oh, that’s a stretch, but yeah, my partner is a hero in many ways.

That’s just kid stuff. We’re beyond kid stuff.

Do you and your partner belong to different class statuses, like one is upper class while the other is middle class?
More like earth status, like one is from here and the other is from out there…

That’s not really our concern. Social cliques is more like it.
I think we’re both upper class, in a way. Not an issue.

What would you do if your partner suddenly “disowns” you for discovering that you’re in a different clique?
My partner is very understanding in that situation. That will never happen. We hate cliques!

Ugh, the nerve! I'll confront my partner later!

I’d prefer it if my partner had a morbid sense of humor.

Did any of your parents disagree with your partnership?
No parents to seek permission from here.
Oh, yes. They wanted to disinherit me if I went on seeing my love!

Will you do anything to win over your sweetheart, even crossing social cliques for him or her?

Definitely! Do as the Romans do, they say…
We’re just chill, no drama like that.

Very much so. It’s a great lesson for both of us.

Are you cool if your partner has x-ray vision?
Fine, as long as the partner doesn’t use it for naughty reasons, you know what I mean.
No, that’s stuff for the kids.
Whoa, that would be awesome! But also, a point of trouble! Let me think about it.
That would be nice. It’s useful to see through coffins!

We’re just chill. We don’t have such issues.

Will you date someone who hands you a dating questionnaire to answer beforehand?
Of course not! But we can have a Q&A type of conversation first, like journalists.
Such a silly proposition. Not for us.
Sounds so childish. Nope!
My parents did that to me once. It’s just hilarious, really. And downright silly.

Is it okay with you if your partner has super hearing abilities?
For sure! It should be put to good use, though.
One of us is a music virtuoso, the other a law aficionado. Those are our real abilities.
I prefer it if my partner has dancing and singing abilities.
Might be useful to eavesdrop people in a funeral.

Are you okay if your sweetie is obsessed with cars?
My sweetie is obsessed more with suspicious space crafts that land on earth, and the beings inside of it.

Outwit ain’t the word here… maybe we’re just faster than a speeding bullet.

We try to avoid encounters as much as we could.
We’re quite the expert on this one, a bit…

If you discovered your partner’s one weakness, what will you do?
Encase it in a lead box and hide it away.
Well, if it’s a terminal illness, I think I’ll hide that fact from my partner at first…
Not sure. Cry, maybe? Or there are worse things we could do…
Weakness? We are all weak. The whole of humanity is weak!

If you discover that your partner has a terminal illness, what would you do?
Not an issue here. My partner has nerves of steel.
It’ll crush me! But I’ll put up a front to make my partner feel that everything is fine. Then I’ll tell my partner of the illness later on.
Well, we’re hopelessly devoted to each other, so we’ll probably work through it.
I guess that’s better than killing yourself. But I’m not sure. Let me think about it.
