Whether you’re casually hooking up or have been going out for a while now, setting boundaries is an important part of any relationship.To have the healthiest relationship, both partners should know each other’s wants, goals, fears and limits.You should feel comfortable honestly communicating your needs to your partner without being afraid of what they might do in response.If your partner tells you that your needs are stupid, gets angry with you or goes against what you’re comfortable with, then your partner is not showing you the respect you deserve.
There may be some negotiating and compromising as you figure out an agreement that works for both of you.
But if your partner asks you to do something that just doesn’t feel right, or they try to control you in some way, that’s when you get to say that this isn’t healthy for you.
This digital dating agreement can be changed as you continue with your relationship.
Just because you felt comfortable with something at the beginning of a relationship doesn’t mean that you have to stick with that forever.
You can communicate with your partner if things change.
