About This Quiz

The start of a relationship is always the most exciting part. Fiery romances and butterflies are the best, but how do you know if you are ready to take the next step? Committing to a relationship is a serious thing for everyone involved. You are signing up to meet the family, spend tons of your free time with their friends and do the things they love to do, even if you hate them. But if it's right, those "chores" feel like blessings when you get to spend all your time with that girl or guy you're falling for. 

But there's more to consider than the initial rainbows and butterflies. From cooking for them to spending all your extra cash on gifts for them, it is hard work making someone else happy. There will be fights and disagreements about major life decisions. There will be stress and communication problems that seem impossible to work through. All of the sudden, that perfect boyfriend or girlfriend doesn't seem so perfect anymore, and you begin to wonder if they were right for you all along. However, when it's worth it, being in a relationship is one of the most rewarding, life-changing parts of life. So let's figure this out together, shall we? How ready are you to DTR?
