About This Quiz

Relationships can be like a roller coaster for some people, and main characters in novels are no exception to this, either. In fact, romance novels portray many types of characters that are realistic and relatable for all of us. Some of these characters find love many years later, while others get their hearts broken right away. But above all, romance novels can allow the reader to escape into a perfect world ... a world where you just might find the love of your life!

But not all romantic stories have a happy ending. Some characters grow apart from their true love, while others put their work or hobbies before the relationship. If anything, a romance novel can teach us all about life experiences that may happen one day. Such life experiences may change a person for the better, which could also allow them to find love later in life. Because a romance novel isn't just about love, it's about life itself. So no matter what your relationship status is right now, you have a unique story that we want to hear about. Write it all down, because there's no right or wrong way to do this. We just want to learn more about you through your storytelling skills!
