About This Quiz

Even the strangest among us deserves the opportunity to find love.

Sid Vicious had Nancy Spungen, someone who earned the nickname "Nauseating Nancy" by matching her lover's strange antics. Cleopatra and Mark Antony had their own ill-fated royal affair, a high-profile relationship between leaders of two of the world's most powerful nations. Some relationships are maintained more for mutual benefit and pragmatism than love, as is rumored to be the case for Bill and Hillary Clinton.

But even the most passionate, intense couples and lovers throughout history and popular culture have one thing in common with the rest of us: at some point, they were single. Few couples, especially in the modern era of dating apps and online matching, know early in life that they are destined to be together forever. 

Before meeting their soulmate, everyone goes through a period - sometimes a painfully long period - of being single. The questions are, how will they handle their singlehood, and are they happy being single? And during that time, what kind of person will they be? 

We've found that it's pretty easy to group most single people into a few common categories. Just answer the questions in this quiz, and we'll let you know what kind of single person you are!
