The Cosmo Misery Quiz: How Hot Dogs Can Predict The Future Of Your Relationship


With its overconfident predictions (if your man likes chili, he’ll love a deep massage) and its every-answer-is-the-right-answer optimism, the Cosmo Couple Quiz just makes life seem a little too easy.

That’s why we’ve created the Cosmo Misery Quiz, with advice more appropriate to the cold, dark world beyond the pages of Cosmo. Take a look at the hot dogs below (from Cosmo‘s actual quiz). Pick your favorite. Then tell your guy to pick his (or, if you’re a Cosmo girl, subtly manipulate him into doing so using mind games and body-language and infinitesimal body-language cues). Finally, scroll to the bottom for our analysis of your choices.

With Sauerkraut and Mustard

With Chili
Though your mixed-race relationship seems great now, the deep-seated prejudices you both unconsciously cherish will eventually drive you apart.

With the Works
