1. Which of these are you most often guilty of in a relationship:
a. jealousy – I am not sure any of these are really me, but this is the most likely. Worrying about what went before and whether the other person was better at something than me. As if it is important.
b. not apologizing
c. not keeping your word
d. guilt trips
2. Which of the following behaviors would annoy you most in a partner.
a. fishing for compliments by verbalizing self-doubt – My ex did and does this all of the time. Mind you he did b and d too.
b. passive-aggressive behavior
c. usually forgets important dates i.e., birthday, anniversary
d. making you feel guilty when spending time with friends
3. Consider you are looking for a mate, rank these traits in order of importance, with 1 being most important, and 7 being least important.
___ Kindness 2
___ Honesty 1
___ Ambitious 7
___ Confidence 5
___ Reliable 3
___ Assertive 6
___ Sense of Humor 4
4. Score! You exchanged numbers with a hottie. Now you: (pick one)
a. Wait for a week, see if that person calls you first. Strange as it seems, I have never been in this situation and don’t expect to be. Hoping not to play the dating game again.
b. Call the next day if not sooner.
c. Call and text incessantly. Let them know they’ve made an impression.
d. You’d never call. What if you get rejected?
5. How did you handle your last relationship break up?
a. You’ve never been in a relationship before. The timing’s never been right.
b. You went out and got drunk every night, until you forgot everything.
c. You went out on a massive amount of date, even with people you knew you had no interest, making sure to date a new face every night.
d. You felt bad and cried, but bounced back in a couple of days.
None of the above. I played around online and found myself the right man.
Bonus: Would you take a holiday all by yourself, at the ‘spur of the moment’? Why or Why not? Where would you go? I did, I went off to Florence for a long weekend on my own. Things were difficult at home and I wanted to get away. The two men who might have come with me (not together) chose not to. It made me realise that there is no need to wait around for someone to do what you want and need. Just get on and do it yourself. Now I have no need of a holiday alone, but I am not frightened of it.
