This Personality Test Reveals Your Secret Pet Peeves When Falling In Love
Buzz, Love

Is it them ... or are you just being grumpy?

Falling in love can play tricks on our psychology, much in the way optical illusions do. Because of this, a personality test can be the best way to get straight to the bottom of issues we face in dating and relationships, such as when our secret pet peeves may be getting in the way of finding true happiness with a soulmate.

Let's face it, while falling in love is one of life's greatest pleasures, being in love and staying in love is a whole other kettle of fish.

Sure, being in a loving, long-term relationship is something central to the lives of many, but being in one doesn't mean that everything will be rainbows and kittens forever, you know?

There's something about being in a relationship that irks most every single person out there, whether they are willing to admit it or not. Love is divine, but it's something shared between two or more people, and when two or more people are involved in anything, there are bound to be some bumps in the road.

When you know going into a relationship what sort of things drive you totally loco, it can actually help you keep your relationship alive and kicking.

Believe it or not, figuring out what's mostly like to annoy you in love doesn't make you focus even more on that trait, Rather, it makes it easier for you to separate your own particular quirks from any sort of relationship red flags you should pay attention to. That lowers the stakes, giving you time to figure out whether the love you share is worth suffering through some minor annoyances every so often.

Maybe you already know what you can't stand when you're falling in love, or perhaps you still aren't quite sure. That's where this personality test comes in! This optical illusion based quiz is designed to help you quickly figure out what irritates you so you can determine if it's really you or them who needs to be dealt with.

All you need to do is look at the picture below and make a mental note of the image you see first.

Once you've done that, scroll down to find out what this personality test reveals about your secret pet peeves when you're falling in love.

It's that simple, and it could totally save your next relationship.

If you saw...

1. William Shakespeare's face

If the first thing you saw when you looked at this image was Shakespeare's face, your secret pet peeve in love and relationships is being "forced" to talk when you're not in the mood.

Sure, you love a good conversation as much as the next person, but you don't like feeling forced to talk when you aren't in the mood for idle chatter.

Take heart! While compromise is part of every relationship, you should never be dating or in love with someone who makes you change things about yourself that make you feel uncomfortable. Chances are, if quiet is something you need in a relationship, that's probably something your partner more than understands. And if they don't, having a conversation with them about your needs never hurt anyone. Just FYI.

 

2. The man astride a creature

If the first thing you saw when you looked at this image was the man astride a creature, your secret pet peeve in love and relationships is feeling "forced" to tame your singleton ways.

While nothing speaks to your heart in quite the way falling in love does, it's always hard for you because you feel like you have to hang up your proverbial single hat. You think that being in love means giving up your love of a night on a town.

The truth is that it doesn't have to be that way at all! Chances are the person you've fallen in love with loves your partying ways. Being in love doesn't have to mean you give anything up, it just means you have to be ready, willing, and able to allow the person to love join you in the party!

3. The stars

If the first thing you saw when you looked at this image was the stars, your secret pet peeve in love and relationships is having to change your routine for someone else.

You adhere to your routine to keep you feeling happy and safe, and the idea of having to alter it in any way to accommodate another individual is unthinkable to you, no matter how much you may love them.

While compromise is central to every relationship, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn that when you truly come to love someone, you won't mind making space for them in your life. Besides, making space for another person doesn't mean you have to give up what keeps you centered, either!

 

4. The houses

If the first thing you saw when you looked at this image was the houses, your secret pet peeve in love and relationships is learning to live with another person.

You are a creature of quirks and habits and the idea of letting someone into your inner world is scary to you. What if there are fights?

So, what if there are? Fights and disagreements are necessary on the path to intimacy. Just because your habits don't align with your partner's that doesn't mean it's anything other than a minor annoyance. Cut yourself and your partner some slack when it comes to learning to live together. The bumps you'll face are necessary hurdles, not indicators that your relationship is doomed.
