What qualities should I look for in a good relationship
In a good relationship the other person:

  • Wants you to share equally in making decisions and in responsibilities that concern what you do together.
  • Wants you to have the freedom to give your opinion and decide what you think is best for you.
  • Feels safe to admit and share fears and insecurities with you and helps you feel safe to do the same.
  • Accepts that no means no.
  • Respects your physical space. Doesn’t get in your face to talk.
  • Doesn’t disrespect other people or family members or call them names.
  • Respects the right to have different opinions and feelings, different friends and activities.
  • Is not jealous of others.
  • Supports your goals.
  • Doesn’t feel that it is necessary to give material things as a sign of affection.
