monday morning survey: romantic symptoms questionnaire


Love can make us feel like we're on top of the world. You know that euphoria that you feel for the one you love; it can be amazingly exciting, extremely trying, and wonderfully complex all at the same time. It's a world-wind of emotions. Researchers have created a wide variety of surveys that try to capture these feelings. Below is one of these such surveys that is aimed at measuring the amount of romantic symptoms you have about your relationship.
