If You're Single, Take This Quick Superficiality Test

Not many of us are willing to admit to being superficial. When it comes to dating, we usually feel our criteria is totally justified! However, you might be surprised to discover that you are more superficial than you previously realized.

Not many of us are willing to admit to being superficial. When it comes to dating, we usually feel our criteria is totally justified! However, you might be surprised to discover that you are more superficial than you previously realized.

Since it's difficult to be objective about these things, I've designed a quick test to determine if you are, in fact, a superficial dater.

It's in our nature to make snap judgments about people based on the limited information we have at our disposal - superficial traits. But this tendency can backfire if you're looking for love and genuine connection with another person. The reality is, it takes time to discern a person's true character and compatibility with you.

If you become too focused on certain superficial traits, you're more likely to miss out on connecting with someone who could be a great partner for you and bring a lot of joy and love into your life!

If you "fail" the test, don't worry. You have the power to change your superficial tendencies if you so choose. Acknowledging you have them in the first place is the first step.

Happy dating!
