How to set boundaries

Whether you’re casually having sex, just started dating, or are in a committed relationship, setting and respecting boundaries is essential to any and every relationship. It’s important that partners feel comfortable expressing their wants, goals, fears, and limits, and everyone’s boundaries are honored. That means everyone feels comfortable communicating their needs without fear of what another person will do in response.

If your partner tries to minimize your needs or violates the boundaries you established, then they aren’t showing you the respect and trustworthiness you deserve.
