About This Quiz
Can the state of your love life determine whether or not you're an ethical person? In other words, does being single mean that you're more irresponsible than a taken person, or does dating tons of cuties at once mean that you're cruel or dishonest?
Whether we admit it or not, most people make assumptions about what other people's dating statuses mean about their morality. They think coupled-up people are good and people with secret relationships are bad. They see unhappily single people as being nice and sympathetic and happily single people as somehow being wicked, just because they like to date around.
But are these stereotypes actually true? We think not ... and we want to put this theory to the test! In this quiz, we're going to give you a bunch of hypothetical situations to respond to, each one involving a moral dilemma. Answer them honestly and we'll guess whether you're in a stable relationship, perpetually single, mired in an "it's complicated" situation or gleefully single. We bet that the results will be more accurate than you'd imagine. Want to see if we can figure out the REAL nature of your love life? Stop sliding into that zaddy's DMs and take this quiz!
Let's say you're at a dinner party at someone else's house. Would you take the last slice of pizza?
Yeah. I mean, why waste food?
I'd just stare at it longingly until someone else told me to take it.
I'd say, "Anybody want this?", and if no one admitted it, I'd scarf the darn thing!
Do you feel obligated to let older people tell you long stories, even if they're boring?
Yes. You gotta respect your elders.
I'd listen while sending lots of mean tweets about how bored I was.
I'd allow a painfully bored expression to settle on my face so that the older person would be forced to shut up out of politeness.
I'd interrupt the story with a question about some interesting aspect of it.
Imagine your partner is rude and self-centered, always putting down your friends and projects. In your mind, would that justify cheating on them?
No. Maybe they're just going through a rough patch?
I wouldn't actually cheat, but I might have an emotional affair. You know, by accident.
Um, I would break up with them immediately.
How much Netflix is too much Netflix?
Too much Netflix is more than seven hours in one sitting.
Too much Netflix is more than three hours in one sitting.

Volunteer for an hour at a community garden
Donate $100 to a nonprofit
Run in my company's charity 5k
Can I say I'm going to run the 5k, then cancel at the last minute?
Upon seeing someone annoying ringing your doorbell, have you ever hidden behind your couch?
Let's say you work with your best friend. She often shirks her responsibilities while expecting you to cover for her. What do you do?

I'd lecture her on why her behavior isn't fair to others in the office.

Yes, but you should have a conversation where you try to change their mind first.
You're in a band. A record-company executive approaches and tells you he's willing to sign you if you leave the band and go solo. What do you do?

I'd say no, but I'd secretly resent my band for dragging me down.
I'd ask him why and make a decision based on that.

One day, by accident, you find out that your ex-bf or ex-gf lied about their financial status to get an important scholarship. How do you handle it?

As a flirtation tactic, is it okay to wait three hours to text someone back, or is that manipulative?

It's kinda rude if you do it on purpose, but it's okay if you do it by accident (which I do all the time.)
What would you do if your sibling asked you to be their pregnancy surrogate?
I'd automatically say no.

It depends. Is this the only way they can have a child?

I'd write down the brand and size so I could save up for a pair of my own.
Let's say your mother has a dairy allergy. Would you feel comfortable scarfing ice cream in front of her?

Well, what if you keep the purse for a long time?
Probably not, unless it was made by a poor young artist.
Would you adopt a very ugly dog if you were told that no one else would take her home?

You go to a birthday party. You and your partner are the only people there. How long do you feel obligated to stay?
