About This Quiz

We are all wired differently, and we all have different fears. A lot of people in this world crave commitment. They look at the opportunity to love and to be loved as a wonderful thing. They know, or at least they hope, that in their golden years they will have someone by their side and will spend a lifetime feeling safe and secure. Commitment is their friend.

Then you have the other side of the coin, people who are afraid of commitment. Instead of looking at a lifetime of security with one particular person as a good thing, they look at it as a form of jail. They fear that their creativity and freedom will be stifled, that they will miss out on traveling the world, doing what they want to do, and maybe even finding other romantic partners all because they decided to commit to something. 

We've developed a quiz that will let you know just how afraid of commitment you are. If you happen to be engaged, living with someone or married and it comes out you aren't all that into commitment, we suggest you don't share this with your partner. So go ahead and take this quiz. We promise it doesn't take too long. You don't owe us anything, don't worry.
