Failing the relationship test


As I’ve been talking with friends over the last month, several people have told me about a particular thing that people1 do:  They ask their partner for something expecting the partner to give a particular answer (usually “no”) as a test.

A few stereotypical examples:

“Honey, do you think that person over there is attractive?”
“Would you ever like to date other people?”
“Do you ever think about your exes?”

I’m just putting this out there:

If you create “tests” for someone you’re in a relationship with, you are the one who has failed, not them.

Proceed accordingly.

And if you haven’t already, see if you can contribute anything to
