About This Quiz

Have you and your partner become one in all the wrong ways? It's time to find out!

Sometimes, when we hang around one person enough, we begin to adopt some of their behaviors. While it can be cute, especially when it comes to babies and toddlers, it's not so adorable for grown people- and even less so for couples. If you find that your relationship is one-sided, that you are sacrificing your happiness for your partner's and you're supporting their bad habits, you're in trouble! Codependency, by definition, is when a person relies on their partner on an excessive level. But how can you know for sure if you're codependent in a relationship? Well, we've made this quiz for people like you! People who are questioning whether they're losing themselves in love or what they think love is.

Will our quiz reveal that you enable the worst habits in your partner because you don't want to lose them, or will it say that you don't take crap from anyone and tell it like it is? The only way to find out for sure is if you answer our questions. That truth can hurt but it's time you find out what it is. The first step to bettering yourself is to learn whether problems, if any, exist.
