Healthy relationships are built on solid foundations. The building blocks of these foundations include:

Building a strong foundation:

  • Have conversations with your partner about boundaries and expectations.
  • Discuss what you are comfortable with and what makes you uncomfortable.
  • Be sure to ask your partner about what makes them comfortable and what makes them uncomfortable.
  • Expect that your partner will respect your boundaries.
  • Respect your partner’s boundaries.
  • Be sure to maintain a life outside of the relationship.
