About This Quiz

The Greek philosopher Plato wrote about the concept of soulmates in "The Symposium" and the story was quite bizarre.  In this tale, humans were originally not separated by gender.  We were kind of a monstrous species that had two heads, four arms and four legs and, as a result of all those ridiculous appendages, we used to cartwheel around all over the place.  The gods feared these cartwheeling beasts, and so Zeus cut them in two, to keep them in check.  The resulting humans, now split into two separate sexes, were miserable as they longed to find their other half and only achieved any kind of real happiness again once they did so.  And that, essentially, is your soulmate.  it is the literal other half of yourself. At least in that story, which of course was meant to be a little bit preposterous. 

Your soulmate likely was never torn away from you by a Greek god, but you know that when you find the right person, it does feel like you're truly complete.  But how do you truly know if it's the right one?  Well, that takes time, but we can help!  Answer some questions and we'll tell you the initials of your soulmate. What are you waiting for? Cartwheel into the quiz and see!
