Sometimes it takes trial and error to learn what works in dating or which partners offer you safety and love.
As a general rule, if your relationship does not feel right, it probably isn’t.
In healthy relationships, there is no abuse, violence, lying or manipulation.
It is important to think about what brings you happiness and make time for your interests, hobbies, goals and values.
For instance, if you love to dance and your partner enjoys being on the debate team, your relationship will be stronger if you both invest time in your separate interests.
A healthy partner will respect your boundaries, adore you for who you are and not try to change you.
