If majority of your answers are A-

You have a rosy picture of romance. Fresh and innocent like that of a teenager. You still believe in sweet simple dreams of blissful togetherness, with no troubles, no hurdles, no responsibilities. But my dear, though life is not a dream. The real world is harsher and far bitterer than you imagine. So first set your priorities. If your priority is your love then, be prepared for the fight ahead too, for life is one big war. Less with the world, more with your own insecurities and doubts. Good luck. You need to win a secure place for yourself first than make a secure nest for both of you.

If majority of your answers are B-

Well , you are one intense lover. What an amazing confidence of your own feelings. You must be either well settled in your life or completely crazy about her. If you are well settled , then yes please go ahead and win him/ her and I am sure you will. If you are still on your way to stability, then I just have to say that your behavior borders on the obsessive. Though I feel overwhelmed at the intensity of your love, I would however caution you to go slightly slow as you might be misunderstood or your actions misinterpreted. You cannot promise the earth if you don’t have a piece of it for yourself. Right? Other wise you are the perfect lover.

If the majority of your answers are- C

You are the new generation. You believe the world is out there waiting to be explored. And you are right in your own way. Life is short and every moment is to be cherished with joy , every moment experienced. But in your quest for living life fully, just don’t overlook love and miss out the most beautiful feeling in the world. True love is hard to find. So don’t shut your eyes to it. Let it enter and colour your life.

If the majority of your answers are D-

You are a totally traditional person with rich traditional values. I am not sure how to grade you but, you are neither obnoxious as you may seem nor a chauvinist as people say. You just have been brought up in tradition. That’s all and there is nothing wrong in it. In fact it is good in many ways. But I just want to mention one small thing. Too much of a cultured , trained thoughts kill the spontaneity. Everything becomes controlled and manipulated. I hope you get my point. Love is a spontaneous feeling and so at times (not always)you have to let your heart rule your mind.

If the majority of your answers are E-

Well what can I say? You are a self made person. You have built your own rules. Your own world. This is a democracy and as long as you are within the boundaries of law, there is nothing wrong in how you think. It is true, somewhere you lost the urge to be in love- maybe a bitter experience, may be life. But you have become a mean machine as they say. Nothing bad with that, except one day- one unexpected day- you ill miss love in your life. Hope it won’t be too late then. Break the chains that bind your heart. Let it loose and try to feel. Life is beautiful at times, if you give it a chance. Trust me!
