True Love Character Test: An Essential Aid to Finding Real LoveTHOMAS LICKONA
This activity will help you look more objectively at the character of someone you feel romantically attracted to.
A truly loving relationship, one based on mutual respect and caring, requires good character. This test will help you look objectively at the character of a person you're romantically attracted to or involved with — and decide whether it is wise to pursue this relationship. Even one character problem in an important area may be a sign that a relationship isn't healthy and may bring unhappiness.
