The Hopeful Romantic (7-10 points)
You know that even though love can result in disappointment and a broken heart there is always hope. You anticipate the prospect of loving and be loved again. In the words of Martin “You go girl!”

On The Verge of Giving Up...But Not Quite There (4-6 points)
You want to believe in love and all the beauty it has to offer but heartbreak and the examples around you dictate otherwise. You try not to be a pessimist but sometimes you just can’t help it. Get it together of you’ll end up in the next category.

It’s a Wrap (0-3 points)
All the things that happened in your love life have left you rife with hopelessness. How can you believe in love when you’ve experienced all the pain & turmoil it can bring? You can’t, so you don’t. Please do the work necessary to reverse this way of thinking; it will only stop you from having the love you really want.

I only scored a 7, not as high as I would've liked. Which puts me in the Hopeful Romantic category. The questions that got me in trouble are #1. I am too shy to ask someone out for coffee upon our first meeting. If he asked that would be different. On #4 I would def find myself getting angry and fast forwarding, I get really passionate about stuff :-) And for #5 I answered "b-open to the idea" because though I am looking forward to love I am also a bit apprehensive about it. I look forward to seeing your scores as well!

I got an 8, so we are in the same category. I got 0 points on makes me nervous and afraid. so while the rest as "all good" I clearly still have some things to work on. I'd HATE to push a good man away or not let a good relationship flourish. Thanks Day! Always enlightening!

@J As a female I couldn't answer most of the questions either maybe that's why I am single lol but please believe some men (yes even REAL ones) get more into their feelings than some women.
