If you chose mostly As…
You’re an extreme commitment-phobe: Unfortunately, this is not a good thing. You push anyone that comes close to your emotions. This might be because of your past relationships or the ones around you. You panic when things are getting too “serious”, and are afraid of getting your heart broken. However, you need to allow people into your life. Some people will disappoint you, but you cannot continue to shelter yourself. After all, it’s a new year, and with that comes new opportunities.
If you chose mostly Bs…
You’re a balanced acrobat: When you start new relationships, you are careful but not hesitant. You give something a try at least once, and are always looking for new opportunities. You realize that not every relationship is perfect but are willing to make things work. You don’t rush into anything but believe that taking it slow is the best way to get to know someone. Continue on this path because it has allowed you to meet interesting and fun people.
If you chose mostly Cs…
You are a stage-five clinger: When you have significant other, you are obsessed with them way too much. You always jump the gun, and perhaps have scared a few prospective partners with your “marriage” talk and scrapbooking. You have no life of your own and you revolve around the life of your partner. Although you’re needy, you believe in true love, and that one day you will meet the “one”. Just be a little less clingy, and maybe people will stick around.
