For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with magazines. It started with Barbie magazine (yes, that Barbie) pretty much as soon as I could read, then I moved on Sabrina The Teenage Witch Magazine, then Total Girl, then Smash Hits… you get the idea. But the ones that held my attention for the longest were definitely Dolly and Girlfriend. I know I’m not alone in saying those mags are probably what got me through my teen years without any major breakdowns. I loved the posters (Chad Michael Murray, anyone?) the advice pages and the fashion spreads that told me how to best style my stretchy Supre belt with my pinstripe 3/4 shorts. But most of all, I loved the quizzes. Those glossy pages filled with multi-choice questions allowed me to do the level of soul-searching usually reserved for divorcees in the throes of a mid-life crisis.
But I feel like quizzes get quite a bad rap in 2017. We tend to associate them with certain pop culture websites that publish bizarre ones like “Take This Quiz To Find Out Which Flavour Of Ice cream Your Cat Likes Most!!” But if you ask me, quizzes can actually be a great way to get a better understanding of what makes you tick and gauge how you’re feeling about a certain situation.
This month we’ve been focusing on ‘connections’ and how you can strengthen your bond with your boo for a super happy and healthy relationship. So, we thought there was no better time to put together a quiz that will help you check whether your relationship is on the right track. Obviously, you shouldn’t rely on a quiz to tell you whether to break up or stay together. But it may help give you some clarity and insight into your current situation. And hey, if you’re not happy with the results you could always have one of these awkward but necessary conversations to get things moving in the right direction again.
