Everyone deserves to be in a healthy, positive, fulfilling relationship. Here’s how that can look. You should always feel safe. Your relationship should be a place of security. You should always feel supported. Your partner should take an interest in your success. You should always feel valued. Your partner should care about your opinion and perspective. And you should feel as though your presence in the relationship is meaningful. You should be able to mutually resolve conflicts. All relationships call for compromise, but compromises should come equally from both partners. Arguments happen to everyone, but they should be rare, not the rule. You should have lives together and apart. You should have mutual friends, but also separate friends. Mutual interests and also separate interests.
