The only thing scarier than falling in love is the idea of having to spend your entire life alone.

We all know that it won't come to that. We know that our person is out there somewhere, we've just got to wade through the morass of terrible partners to find them.

However, sometimes it's not just other people standing between us and a lasting love that will stand the test of time — sometimes it's ourselves.

And as this free personality test will reveal, your behaviors might be responsible for your loneliness.

Nobody out there is perfect, and sometimes our flaws, foibles, and fears can stand in our own way, particularly when it comes to finding love.

While we all know that, what we don't always know is what exactly is going on with us that's keeping us from a relationship.

It's difficult to be totally objective about yourself, isn't it? Especially when you don't quite believe what a personality quiz or personality test is telling you.
