The Affection Quiz

Snuggle up and see if you match your mate

You may think you are getting enough or you may feel like you aren’t getting any. Whatever your situation...giving and getting affection plays a big part in building a successful relationship. But, in many cases one person may feel like enough ISN’T enough.

Dr. Pepper Schwartz asked men and women what they do to express their feelings and gives a breakdown of how each gender faired, why it’s important to step it up, and how to avoid possible relationship pitfalls.

Here's a preview question: "When my partner and I walk down the street, we almost always or almost never hold hands."

Pepper's point, as you'll see when you take the quiz, is that men and women sometimes have different expectations when it comes to affection and intimacy, and a frank discussion will almost always lead to a better relationship.
