Healthy Relationships

It’s good to be able to recognise the differences between healthy and unhealthy romantic relationships. People in healthy relationships would be able to answer “yes” to the following questions:

  • Are they a similar age to you?
  • Do you spend time together and spend time with your own friends too?
  • Do you feel safe with each other?
  • Are you proud to be with each other?
  • Can you solve arguments without being mean and apologise to each other if you have done something wrong?
  • Do you decide what to do together?
  • Do you treat each other with respect?
  • Do you trust each other?
  • Do you support each other’s ambitions and plans like getting a job or going to college?
  • Do you encourage each other’s interests – like sports or music or drama?
  • Do you respect each other’s opinions?
  • Do you give each other privacy? (diaries and text messages are private)
  • Do close friends and family know about the relationship and can you discuss your relationships with your close family and friends?
  • Do you allow each other “space” when you need it?
