We at Fun Loving Couples think love and relationships are very important. Here is a fun love test…give it a try! Hint, some answers may be in our blog – Do You Know how Valentine’s Day Became the Day of Love?
Couples – everywhere you look, you see couples. Ever since Eve gave Adam a taste of the apple, seems like the name of the game is to find someone to share your life with.
Why is it that some relationships seem to be a match made in heaven while others hit the first stumbling block and fizzle out? Is that because that relationship just wasn’t meant to be? Maybe they just didn’t fit well together.
No matter what, seems like just about everyone looks for romance and love. It’s too bad there’s not a definitive test to find out whether your potential mate is really the one.
Well, here’s a test to learn a little about some customs surrounding love in different parts of the world. It won’t help you determine whether your potential mate is really the right one for you, but it’s a bit of fun. Answers are at the end.
