PROGRESS STATUS:
 
1.  You get home from work at the end of a long week. You feel like going to the movies, but you're still waiting for your partner to come home. When your partner arrives, she/he excitedly announces that she/he has big plans for the evening with a friend from school. Basically, your significant other will be ditching you for the night. How would you react?
 
I'd tell him/her off.
 
I'd get angry and vow to make my own plans next time so that she/he is stuck home alone.
 
I'd feel disappointed about it and signal it in a subtle way, but I wouldn't say anything.
 
I'd feel momentarily disappointed, but I'd still wish him/her a good time.
 
I'd perfectly fine with it.
 
I'd fully appreciate the fact that I get to spend some time alone.
 
2.  Your partner comes home quite obviously in a bad mood. She/he isn't being rude with you, but you can see that there is something on his/her mind. She/he doesn't volunteer any explanation and is definitely lost in his/her thoughts. When you said goodbye that morning, everything seemed fine. What would you do?
 
I'd ask point blank, "What the hell is eating you up?"
 
I'd assume that something I have done is the culprit and start giving him/her a guilt-trip.
 
I'd assume that something I have done is the culprit, withdraw to a different room and worry about the future of our relationship.
 
I'd carefully and calmly ask if anything is bothering him/her.
 
In a light and humorous tone, I'd ask why she/he is acting so strangely.
 
I'd say nothing and leave the house so she/he can think.
 
I'd say nothing, but stick around in case she/he wants to talk.
 
I'd say nothing and go to another room, but leave the door open.
 
I'd wait a while to see if the mood passes, then ask what's wrong.
 
I wouldn't dare ask what is wrong. It's none of my business unless she/he wants to make it my business.
 
3.  You and your partner are at a party. Both of you are equally acquainted with the hosts and the other people attending, so although you aren't the best of pals with any of the guests, you have conversed with them on a few occasions. During the socializing, what would you most likely do?
 
I'd stay glued to my partner's side, conversing with the same people he/she is.
 
I'd be away from my partner, mingling with the other guests.
 
I'd stay near my partner, but involved in different conversations.
 
I spend some time by my partner's side, and some time mingling.
 
I let my partner drift or stick by me - as she/he wishes.
 
4.  Have you ever gone through your partner's journal, diary, or personal letters?
 
Yes - I've read it/them from A to Z.
 
Yes - I've read some of it/them.
 
I know where she/he keeps them but I haven't read any.
