Not to be mean, but sometimes people can seem way too desperate to be in a relationship. Don’t get me wrong – there is nothing wrong with wanting a relationship, looking for one, and telling people that that’s what you want. You should know what you want and go after it. But there’s a difference between looking for a relationship and feeling like you absolutely need one. If it’s all you can think about, if it makes you upset when you shouldn’t be, if people have told you that you need to chill… uh, maybe you do. You should never feel like you need to be in a relationship in order to survive. How do you know if you’re being too desperate, or if you’re actually being reasonable when it comes to wanting a bae? It can be stressful and weird, but it’s okay, we’ve designed this quiz to help you out.
There’s an annoying stereotype out there about girls and relationships that assumes that every chick who admits she wants something serious is a crazy, desperate loser. It’s an unfair assumption that is definitely not always true. And while we don’t want to play into that, it’s true that some people actually are trying a little too hard – and of course, that goes for dudes as well! Acting like you’ll do anything to meet a long-term bae has crappy consequences. It can lower your standards, leading you to settle for less than you deserve. Having that attitude can also come off as clingy and needy, which can end up pushing people away. Trust me: you don’t want to be in this situation. If you’re worried you might be, take this quiz to find out if you’re too desperate for a relationship.
