Have you ever felt like you were the only one putting all the time, effort, money and emotional investment into trying to make a relationship work? If you are head over heels in love with a person and are giving the relationship 100% and your partner is giving it 0%, you shouldn’t need me to tell you that you are in a one sided relationship. But love is often blind, so if you are not sure I invite you to take this simple test to open your eyes to the fact that the relationships will not last.
Of course you may have gone into the relationship thinking it may work. Some people will lead you on to that point until they get what they want and then dump you. Some people are just so consumed with self-interest that they have no space in their existence for another.
When something is missing in your life, it usually turns out to be someone, so the main thing to do is to realize quickly that your love is not being reciprocated and move on before you get hurt.

SCORE KEY: (To get the most accurate result, the partner/date should also take the quiz and BOTH scores matched together.)
Mostly A’s – You are certainly in a great relationship – at least from your perception. If he/she also agrees with you, what a match you both make!!
Mostly B’s – This relationship has some potential but it would need BOTH of you to get it going. There’s not enough effort being made to sustain it.
Mostly C’s – This is not a relationship and won’t get off the ground as you are the only one who seems to be really attracted to the other person. They would need to show you much more, and to take your needs into account before anything can happen. There is hardly any mutual chemistry here. This is one person fancying another without much in return. You can certainly do better for yourself!
