About This Quiz

Being single is not a bad thing! You get the whole bed to yourself, you can do what you want when you feel like it, and you never have to worry about sharing your chocolate. We think we can figure out exactly how long you've been single by the way you answer our questions about your lifestyle and your experiences in the dating world. But ... you'll have to 'fess up and be honest for us to get it right. 

Sometimes, we do our best learning about ourselves when we're single. And sometimes, the loneliness is enough to drive you insane. The way we cope with being a party of one varies depending on how long we've been single. When you answer these questions, we'll be able to figure out what stage of singledom you're currently in. Then, we'll know if you've been single long enough for you to forget dating etiquette or if you're still trying to forget your ex. 

We don't have as much relationship experience as Cupid, but we have enough to guess how long you've been on your own. Will we get it perfectly right, or will we need to brush up on the art of being a free agent? Scroll down to your questions, and let us know how we did!
