Everyone's relationship is different, and some people have their own preferences and needs when it comes to dating someone else. However, there are certain types of behaviors that are not okay no matter who you're with, and there are a number of things a partner should never ask you to do. Usually, this involves something that will affect you beyond just in the relationship, and although they might seem obvious, these demands are actually pretty common and be more difficult to spot when they're happening in the moment. Knowing where you can draw the line can help prevent an unhealthy relationship from continuing on without boundaries.
"It’s important to have boundaries in any and all of your relationships," says therapist and relationship expert Jane Reardon, founder of RxBreakup App, over email. "Having clear boundaries helps you retain a clear sense of yourself, knowing what works for you and what doesn’t and being willing to say it out loud, so everyone can get on the same page with how you’re feeling. With fuzzy or invisible boundaries, you might find yourself agreeing to do things you really don’t want to do, making someone else happy at your own expense"
Here are seven things it's not okay for your partner to ask you to do.
