To have a healthy dating relationship, whether casual or exclusive, both partners need to know each other’s limits.
But if one dating partner is checking up on the other too often, it could be a warning sign that they’re trying to control them.
Be aware of excessive calling or texting, demanding to share passwords, or reading your incoming text messages without permission.
Nonetheless, both partners should talk about what they want their digital relationship to look like.
For example, what’s okay to say online to the other?
Both of you should be free to hang out with family and friends, and do things you want to do, without having to get permission to do so.
