A healthy dating relationship
So someone who has lived around violent or disrespectful behavior may not have learned how to treat others with kindness and respect or how to expect the same treatment.
Qualities like kindness and respect are absolute requirements for a healthy relationship.
Some people live in homes with parents who fight a lot or abuse each other — emotionally, verbally, or physically.
Meanwhile, even though you might feel bad or feel for someone who's been mistreated, you need to take care of yourself — it's not healthy to stay in a relationship that involves abusive behavior of any kind.
If you find yourself saying that more than once, it’s a red flag that the relationship may not be healthy.
If you can talk to your partner about anything—the good and the bad—this is a sign of a healthy relationship.
In a healthy relationship, you don’t have to test the other person’s loyalty, because you just know it’s there.
Sometimes people say “we all make mistakes” and “nobody’s perfect” to make excuses for disloyalty.
