About This Quiz

Is being single no fun, or is it one of the most rewarding ways to live your life? The answer depends on your perspective. Some people become their best selves when they're single, taking up jogging, learning a new language and socializing every day of the week. Others retreat to the couch with a pint of Ben & Jerry's, weeping for what they lost when their last relationship ended. 

Sensitive single people often take the conclusion of their relationships as an opportunity to re-examine their choices, stepping back and asking themselves whether the lives they've built are in tune with their truest values. But for adventurous single people, being untethered to another person simply means getting to date all the people on whom they've been harboring crushes ... and there's nothing wrong with that, either!

So, what kind of single person are you? If you're curious whether you're coming across as desperate and depressed or freewheeling and fun, this is the quiz for you. We're going to ask you a series of personal questions about your singledom which will reveal whether you see being alone as a calamity or a cool opportunity. Along the way, we'll also want to learn more about your personality type, taste in partners and dating pet peeves. Ready to get real? It's time to play this quiz!
