About This Quiz

It's lonely in the friendzone. Or is it? It all depends on your expectations. Some people are happy to have a connection with someone else, even if it's platonic. Others see friendship as a mere warm-up to more personal activities. If you've been wondering whether a certain friend is hoping to upgrade your relationship's spice level, this quiz can help you figure out what's up.

We're going to ask you about just about everything: whether you two had a spark when you met, if they confide in you about their crushes and whether your banter is salty or highly flirtatious. You'll have to get totally real with us, telling us the TRUTH about how they act around you, rather than indulging in wishful thinking. If you want to know whether you're the next BeyoncΓ© and Jay, rather than the next Rihanna and Drake, your honesty is crucial.Β 

So ... are you ready to find out if this is going somewhere? Don't linger in denial forever. If it's true love, you should be running toward it, and if it's not ... well, then you should be running toward someone else. So stop checking your phone to see if they've texted and take a big bite of this quiz!
