Quiz: What’s Your Love Type?

paper cutouts of hearts

What is love like for you?

What’s your relationship status? And has that changed at all over the past ten years? If you’re like the majority of people, it probably has… And here inlies the problem with making love quizzes on Blogthings. Everyone is in a different place relationship wise. I suppose we are all either happily attached, unhappily attached, happily detached, or unhappily detached. It’s not the easiest thing to write a quiz that spans all those states, but it’s important for me that my quizzes are as accessible to all as possible 🙂

I was pondering this conundrum when I came across an old Blogthings quiz that had originally been written for straight in our earlier days. I liked it, and I could see how it could be refitted to work for everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, or relationship status. So that’s what I did. I love refitting old quizzes and trying to make them better. For this particular quiz, I felt like the outcomes were a bit unpolished and spent some time drawing them out a bit… and that was not an easy task given that there are sixteen of them. (I also programmed the outcomes to link to each other.)

So I present the new and improved What’s Your Love Type? quiz. It’s based on the MBTI personality test, so you may find some of the questions and outcomes familiar. The twist, though, is that it tells you your personality in love – as well as who you are compatible with.

Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):

  1. What do you get on What’s Your Love Type? Is it true for you?
  2. Are you attached or detached right now? If you are detached, would you rather be attached or are you happy being single?
  3. What is the key to a happy romantic relationship?

What do you think?

    Your Love Type: The Thinker (INTP)

    In love, you are honest and serious about commitment. You try to be the best partner possible.
    For you, closeness is something you think about and desire a lot of the time. Your sweetie also tends to be your best friend.

    Overall, you are pure in your affection and feelings. You don’t let anyone astray, and you are honorable in your intentions.
    However, you tend to be suspicious and distrusting at times. You’ve been burned before, and it hurt!

    I’ve always been detached and I’m always happy being single. The key to a happy relationship is communication and forgiveness.

      I agree with you about the key to a happy relationship. BTW, I know many INTPs who are very happy detached. (I’m an INTP too!)

      How interesting! Are you normally INTP?
      I am, but apparently my love type is the complete opposite! 😉

    “Your Love Type: The Inspirer (ENFP)”
    Weird; my Myers-Briggs type was always INTP.

    “In love, you are passionate and eager to develop a strong bond. You like being in a relationship.
    For you, love should also be playful, creative, and affectionate. You love the dating and flirting phases of love.”

    Dating and flirting should be a big part in romantic relationships!

    “Overall, you are perceptive and bring out the best in your partner. You are good at giving your partner what he or she needs.
    However, you tend to hold on to bad relationships after they’ve turned bad. It’s hard for you to say goodbye.”

    It’s true that I don’t like giving up. It feels like failure, but not all relationships are meant to be.

    J, huh? These quizzes are always so judgmental, but yet I keep coming back. Maybe it’s destiny! I’ll start looking for love in courtrooms.

      OMG, I’m kind of scared to imagine who one might meet in a courtroom! Then again, jury duty is one of my biggest phobias, so maybe I’m just projecting that 😉

          Hahaha! Well, as a fellow acrophobic, I promise I’m not the one who stood too close to the ledge with you.
