Quiz: Are You in a One-Sided Relationship?

one sided relationship 400

It’s a miracle that any of us ever fall in love to begin with. You both have to be head over heels at the exact same time—without moving too fast or too slow. But if you’re in a one-sided relationship, which is when one person is more invested than the other, a romance can begin to unravel. Is your partnership rock solid, or is there a major unbalance that could cause you to crash and burn? Take the quiz to find out.


It’s The Holidays And You’ve Spent Weeks Searching For An Amazing Gift You Know Your Partner Will Adore. They Give You…

A book that admittedly looks pretty good…but it’s still in the Amazon box. 

“Wait, we were exchanging gifts?”

A 15-question scavenger hunt, with a gift card to your favorite restaurant at the end.

A massive diamond necklace you know they can’t afford. 


You’ve Had A Long Day At Work, And So Has Your S.o. You Come Home To Find Them…

In their underwear, eating yesterday’s leftovers. And they didn’t save any for you.

Preparing an overly elaborate three-course dinner. The table is set—with candles.

Whipping up a pot of spaghetti with the sauce you both love. 

M.I.A. (They went out with their friends and forgot to text.)

Your Parents Are Coming To Visit Next Weekend. Your Partner’s Response:

“I told my friends I’d watch the game with them. Is it OK if I come to breakfast with you and your parents, then leave early?” 

“Ugh, weren’t they just here?” 

“I know, I talked to your dad on the phone this morning! I’m so excited.” 

“Great, have fun. I’ll see you next weekend when they’re gone.”
