Which Cereal is Your Relationship Like?

Looking at the cereal shelves in the grocery store, there is every possible combination of flavor and nutrition. In a way, the same is true of relationships: some are sexy and fiery while others are predictable and healthy. Take these comparisons for example.

Cheerios: Cheerios, a staple cereal in the American cupboard, is nutritious, predictable, and homogenous. You might be in a Cheerios relationship if you and your partner are settled into a routine from which you rarely veer off course, yet you have the mutual respect and communication skills that make for a healthy relationship. Don't be afraid to go for the Honey Nut Cheerios or add some strawberries every once in a while to spice things up!

Lucky Charms: "They're magically delicious!" Lucky Charms mixes nutritious whole grain bites with the pop and flavor of tiny, whimsical marshmallows. You might be in a Lucky Charms relationship if your usual daily grind is punctuated by spontaneous adventures, youthful jokes, or child-like activities. Just make sure you agree upon the correct balance between whole grain and marshmallows, and give up one or the other when it matters.

Honey Bunches of Oats: Honey Bunches of Oats (my personal favorite cereal) combines crunchy flakes and oat clusters with a hint of sweetness in a way that makes for a different flavor in each bite. You might be in a Honey Bunches of Oats relationship if you keep from settling into a "normal" routine by frequently offering each other little surprises, romantic gestures, and unanticipated opportunities. Although this type of couple is probably fine with unpredictability, be sensitive to your partner's needs. Sometimes it's courteous to throw him a heads up when he was expecting a crunchy flake and is about to get thrown a nut cluster.
