Singles Quiz by Terri Trespicio
How does the single life suit you? Whether you've been in the trenches for years or about to dive back in, it's worth taking a look at how you really feel about life on your own. Take our quiz and find out if the single life might be your sweet spot.
If you scored:
36-45…You're a free spirit
There's no question -- you're quite comfy with your single self, even when you're in a relationship. You've got an upbeat attitude, strong self esteem, and a sense of control in your life. Plus, you are aware that life is what you make it. This will serve you well, regardless of relationship status. If and when you find yourself going solo, you'll be just fine.
25-35…You’re stretching your single wings
Congratulations: You're 100% normal. You may, however, find yourself buckling under coupling pressure -- which could mean making decisions for the wrong reasons (such as settling for someone just to relieve that pressure). It's okay if you would prefer to be paired, but know that being single may also give you the chance to explore and strengthen your sense of self. Don’t knock it 'til you try it.
15-24…Single scares the #@! out of you
The idea of going it alone strikes fear into your heart. The problem is that fear may keep you stuck in dead-end relationships simply because you doubt your own ability to stay afloat sans beau. If you are currently single, stop beating yourself up over it! There are millions of attractive, smart, single people living rich, fulfilling lives -- and you can be one of them, whether a relationship comes along or not. It's okay to prefer coupledom, but it's worth asking yourself what's behind those lurking fears. Because those issues may be holding you back from a fuller, happier life -- whether you're single or not.
