Relationship Readiness Quiz

To assess your readiness for a committed relationship rate yourself in each of the following ten areas.  Try to be objective and honest with yourself.  We recommend asking close friends and family members for their opinions as well.

RATING SCALE: Rate Each Item On a Scale From 0 to 10

8-10: GOOD - This area of my life is strong and would be an asset to my next relationship

5-7: OK - This area needs work, but most likely would not sabotage my next relationship

0-4: NEEDS WORK - This area could interfere with the success of my next relationship

I KNOW WHAT I WANT - I have a clear vision for my life and relationship. I can envision my perfect life in rich detail that feels strong, very real, and keeps me motivated.

I AM READY & AVAILABLE FOR COMMITMENT - I have no emotional or legal baggage from a previous relationship. My schedule, commitments and lifestyle allow my availability to build a new relationship.
I AM SATISFIED WITH MY WORK/CAREER - My work is fulfilling, supports my lifestyle, and does not interfere with my availability for a new relationship.
