Once upon a time in the mid-90s, one of our favorite teen magazines sponsored a write-your-own quiz contest. The lucky winners would actually have their quiz printed in the magazine. Since we spent a good portion of our teenage years taking magazine quizzes, we decided to create a quiz with another one of our friends (hi, Merisa!). Even though we spent an entire French class period working on it, our quiz did not win the contest. But fortunately for you, our faithful readers (all nine of you!), I saved a copy! Now you finally can learn whether or not you are "crushing on him too much". It's a serious problem, people. Take the quiz and seek help if necessary.

24-30: Overly-Obsessed Olivia: Woah there, chica. You're spending way too much time crushing on this stud. It's great to have a crush, but you're in way too deep. Take a step back and smell the roses.
17-23: Normal Nelly: Sure you like the guy, but you realize that there is more to life than just him. Congrats! You're a goddess in the relationship realm.
10-16: Do you even like this guy? Or is he just an excuse to fit in with your gal pals and their crushes? You need to decide for yourself whether or not this is real and take action!
So, how'd you do?
