I have to admit, I do lots of what Hannibal would refer to as “psychic driving” within my writing. This means that offer my audiences contextual opinion(s) from my own repertoire and then let you decide, via subtle suggestion, which bits you agree with. But trust me, I work hard to paint that picture.
So, guess what… I’m going to offer you the chance to find your own answers, and therefore personal truth in this piece of writing. This weeks article isn’t a list (iloveyoulistsforver) or a verbose essay (words are still life). Nope, it’s a quiz, so guess who decides the outcome… YOU.
Said quiz has been designed to help you decide whether you’re partner is more of a pet than your equal counterpart in your adult relationship…
Here’s how it works: For each point you agree with record the numerical value. At the end of the quiz add up all your answers and see where you fit in the pet vs partner scale. If you need a definition of pet, this one will do.
Looks like you have a pretty *normal, equally balanced relationship complete with shared decisions, grocery lists and domesticity.
Okay, so you make a few more of the decisions because your partner is a little laid back, not as opinionated as you, or it’s just easier that way. Seems legit but make sure you’re not capping their life experiences by strongly suggesting what they do, when and who with.
You have a pet, not a partner.
