If you’re here on Smart Dating Over 60, you probably intend to find a good, loving partner as the result of your dating efforts. Or perhaps you already started dating and are in the early stages of a new relationship.
How do you know if you’re in (or getting into) a healthy relationship?
Well, aside from your friends offering well-meaning advice, (probably not the most reliable method,) you can indeed gauge whether you’re in a healthy relationship.
One way is to listen to your gut. Your intuition almost always knows the truth about a person or situation. Yet I know I always had a hard time listening to it. It took a lot of therapy to finally get to the root of that problem.
Another way is to answer a few questions about the emotional health of your relationship.
Am I in a Healthy Relationship?
We put together an interactive quiz called Am I in a Healthy Relationship, that will help you judge the quality of your relationship.
The questions are short Yes/No questions. The entire quiz should take you no more than 3 minutes or so. We’ll give you an instant score and short report on the status of your current relationship. Just click on the “Take the Quiz and Find Out” button above.
These quiz questions and scoring are based on a relationship questionnaire by LoveIsRespect.org, a resource for empowering youth (and others) to prevent and end abusive dating relationships.
They are a project of the National Domestic Violence Hotline. Free and confidential phone, live chat, and texting services are available.
Of course, this quiz doesn’t constitute professional advice. If you have relationship problems, you should seek the help of a professional, licensed therapist or counselor.
