Should I Take A Romantic Orientation Test & Quiz?

Questioning your romantic orientation is extremely normal. With so many options and labels, it can be difficult to figure out.

You might assume taking a romantic orientation test or quiz will help you in your process of figuring out yourself.

Nevertheless, we DON’T recommend taking a romantic orientation test or quiz you find on the internet, as they often are NOT backed by facts, research, or give any genuine and clear indications.

Instead of taking a romantic orientation test or quiz, we at ANZPath, highly recommend using Pride Counseling for professional gender therapy to get you more clarity.

A licensed therapist knows how to help you based on experience and education.
