About This Quiz

You've been obsessing about this guy day and night, wondering if he's going to be your first boyfriend or just a footnote in your love life. The chemistry is there, he flirts with you and you think he's amazing — but does that mean you're going to be together? It's impossible to predict the future, but this quiz is the next-best thing!

We're going to ask you all about your interactions with this guy, from how he says hi to you to which emojis he sends you. Be prepared, because we want to know everything. How does he look at you? Does he mention other cuties in your presence? When you talk IRL, do his feet point in your direction? Stuff like that might seem trivial, but it can tell you the difference between a guy who's getting up the courage to ask you out and a guy that just thinks you're attractive. 

So, are you willing to risk having your hopes destroyed to find out what's really up with him? Are you ready to discover whether this is going to be something big or something blah? If you're feeling brave, there's no better time than the present to saddle up and take this quiz!
