Should I Break Up with Him Quiz

The decision to break up with somebody you care about can be life-changing. The trouble is, you never really know if it’s for better or for worse until AFTER it happens! This leads many to second-guess whether they really want to end the relationship or if they should just hold out a little while longer and wait until things improve.

How do you know if you’re going to regret losing him? Is there a way you can know for sure if the two of you are doomed? Might the relationship be saved with just an attitude adjustment?

We’ve got the answers right here! We’re going to try a relationship test that will show you how you actually feel about yourself and your partner, and what, if anything, you’re actually waiting for.

Now add up your total score.

The fewer points you have, (8 being the lowest, 40 being the highest) the more likely it is you are chronically miserable in the relationship. Your relationship is a dysfunctional one, one that you can never seem to repair, no matter how hard you try. You may lose your mind trying to fix something that is irreparably broken.

If you have a low score (about 16) then it’s possible you are either in an abusive relationship or you are suffering from low self-esteem that your partner is contributing to, knowingly or unknowingly. It’s very important that you break these unhealthy patterns if you want a future together.

If you have an even score (about 24) then realize that much of your relationship lately is characterized by stress. Stress is not the reason to leave a relationship. What determines if you stay together is how hard you want to try to reduce that stress. You really need to sit down and discuss these issues with your partner.

If you have a fairly high score (about 32) then understand that while you may be generally unsatisfied, you don’t despise your partner; you don’t fear your partner. You do love your partner but lose yourself in fantasies. While you may be happier as single woman for a while, there is also a very good chance you may regret losing this partner later on. This may happen after you realize that all relationships are only as enjoyable as the effort we put into them. Try talking things out with a partner and seeing where you can make adjustments.

Lastly, if you have a high score of nearly 40, understand that while you have some aspects to improve in your relationship you are about averagely happy – about as much as any other couple out there! Every couple experiences financial hardship, sexual frustration, family drama and heated arguments. Every couple fantasizes about being single and independently sexually adventurous. But based on your answers, you have a lot to cherish in this relationship and deep down, you know that. Maybe it’s time to spice things up and focus on pleasing each other rather than calling it quits.
