Have you ever wondered whether you are in a relationship with a toxic person?
You know that love is supposed to feel wonderful, but this hasn’t been your experience so far.
Perhaps your relationship brought you more anxiety than joy, yet you can’t free yourself from it. You can’t change it, and you can’t walk away.
While no online assessment can give you a definite answer, the test below is designed to help you analyze the situation.
It is designed to help you spot potential red flags so that you can take steps to protect yourself from harm.

Remember: No online quiz is 100 percent accurate, but you may want to discuss it with someone who can objectively evaluate your relationship and give you professional advice, such as a therapist or counselor.
In some cases, online cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a good way to deal with anxiety brought on by relationship troubles, but if your case is severe, working with a therapist face-to-face is a way to go.
