Some people say that dating is hell, but what if it's not? What if dating is actually many circles of hell, each one ghastly in their own way? What if (shock horror) dating could actually be rather heavenly?
The way you experience the modern dating scene will depend on whether you find a way to navigate it that is morally, culturally and emotionally in sync with you. For those people who are all about enthusiastic consent, not judging and making your own rules, today probably won't bother you too much (ghosting notwithstanding). For those who prefer more rigid rules and expectations that take the guesswork out, clear up confusion and set the bar very high for what "counts" as a relationship, then today can be a special sort of horrible. The key is to figure out exactly what works for you and then use that information as a way to identify where those people are who want to navigate dating according to the same rules. We promise you, whatever you're into, there's definitely a pool of perfectly great people who want to do things the same way as you -- and isn't that a pretty great basis for a relationship, or at least a first date?
This quiz will help you to work out where you belong, dating-wise, so that you can find out who else lives there, and then hopefully have a fulfilling and fun time with them. Good luck!
