Quiz - Is My Relationship Healthy?
- Question 1
My boyfriend/girlfriend gets jealous if I want to spend time with my friends instead of hanging out with him/her.
True - This is not a good sign. It's normal to want to spend time with your partner, but it's unreasonable for your boyfriend or girlfriend to expect you to spend all of your free time only with them.
False - Good. An important part of a healthy relationship is having your own friends and interests. It's great to spend time with your boyfriend or girlfriend, but it's good to spend time with other friends and family, too.
- Question 2
My boyfriend/girlfriend always wants to know every step I take; where I go, who I’m with and what I’m doing.
True - This could be a sign that your relationship is unhealthy. When your partner wants to control everything you do, that should be a red flag that something is not right.
False - Good. Your boyfriend or girlfriend does not have the right to control every aspect of your life.
- Question 3
If I don’t answer my cell phone or respond immediately to text messages from my boyfriend/girlfriend, he/she gets really angry and won’t stop trying to contact me.
True - This is the behavior of a controlling partner and could be a sign that your relationship is unhealthy.
False - Good. In a healthy relationship, you shouldn’t be expected to drop everything and respond to your partner whenever they want.
- Question 4
When I get into arguments with my boyfriend/girlfriend, we are able to reasonably talk things out and come to a decision that we can both live with.
True - Good. Being able to talk through things is an important part of a healthy relationship.
False - This could be a sign that your relationship is unhealthy. It’s normal to argue with your partner from time to time, but if you can’t negotiate or compromise, that is not a good sign.
- Question 5
Sometimes my boyfriend/girlfriend pressures me to have sex even if I don’t want to; and I feel bad or guilty if I don’t.
True - Being pressured into sex is never OK. Sometimes in relationships, one person wants to have sex and the other person doesn’t. That’s normal. The key is respecting your partner’s decisions. Being pressured to have sex is a sign that your relationship is unhealthy.
False - Good. In healthy relationships, partners are never pushed to do things they don’t want to do sexually, no matter what!
