When it comes to healthy relationships and attitudes, there are some clear examples of what’s crossing and what’s respecting the line...
|Crossing the line...||
|Respecting the line...|
|"I feel like if I don’t have sex with him, he’ll dump me and find someone else."||"I love that he says, ‘Whenever you're ready – we don't have to do anything you're not into'. It's the sexiest thing he could ever say!"|
|"She gets pissed off when I go do other stuff or see other mates, and starts accusing me of flirting and cheating."||“We've got our own interests - like he's into sport but I'm really into my music - I like that he's different to me, it gives us even more to talk about. "|
|"Everything started out great… but then he started accusing me of cheating on him and I’d start feeling like I’d done something wrong – even though I hadn’t."||"He's fine with me hanging out with other people, and he knows it's up to me who I'm friends with, because we both know it's him I'm really into."|
|"He jokingly called me a ho, because it turned out I'd slept with more people than him."||"We've got better things to talk about than who we've been with before. And anyway, he's one of the good guys - he'd never use disrespectful language towards me."|
|"He keeps asking me to send him naked pics and even tries to take photos of me when I've got nothing on."||"We've shown each other sexy pics of each other on our phones, but usually we just send flirty texts - it's way more sexy ...and leaves more to the imagination!"|
|"She's holding out on me because she thinks it'll keep me interested. It's what girls do. I just tell her she can only play that game for so long before I'm outta here..."||"Everybody's got their reasons, and those reasons are important to them. I don't want to have sex with someone who's not into it."|
|"He's kind of jealous - I think he's just really into her. But lately it's been kind of awkward. He's been going off at her while we're standing there, telling her she's stupid and dresses like a slut."||"Sometimes they argue and it gets kind of heated, but we always check in with them separately and make sure they're doing all right. We make sure they know we're there for them."|
|"Sometimes I get so angry with her but when I yell at her she just says even more stupid stuff."||"I don't always understand or agree with her opinions, but I'd rather be talking to her and hearing what she has to say than having a fight."|
|"When he told me he wanted to break up, I said I was going to commit suicide because I couldn't live without him."||"I asked him ‘What do you want to do?' and if everything was alright, because I don't think you can pressure someone into changing their mind."|
