About This Quiz

We all have an animal side that comes out under certain circumstances. A corporate environment can bring out the weasel in you, while an upcoming high school reunion may have you preening like a peacock. But romantic love inspires our most animalistic behavior, perhaps because love is such a primal force. The strength of our emotions strips away the thin veneer of civilized behavior, revealing our more elemental selves. 

Which animal do you act like when you're in love? How would your ex-boyfriends or ex-girlfriends describe you? Are you cuddly like a bear or vengeful like a scorpion? Do you move through the club like a sinuous panther, stalking your preferred prey (a cute guy)? Or are you as awkward as a bull in a china shop, rarely saying the right thing and tripping over your own feet?

In this quiz, we're going to reveal which animal you act like when you're in love by asking you a series of very personal questions. If you're easily embarrassed, this is not the quiz for you! We want to know how you flirt, fight and make up, because these mating behaviors are still innately tied to humanity's untamed side. So, are you ready to go bananas? Take a walk on the wild side by playing this quiz!
