You are 100 percent entitled to autonomy and privacy.
When one partner is constantly initiating sex and the other isn't in the mood very often, you're in for a world of crushed egos, hurt feelings, emotional pressure, and resentment from both sides.
Does your new bae refuse to stop tickling you when you tell them to knock it off?
important that you and your partner have a similar libido or, at the very least, a plan to handle any differences.
What if one partner's vision of an ideal sex life is getting it on nearly every night, while the other is content with having sex just a few times a month?
Do they continue to touch you in seemingly innocent ways (like hugs, shoulder rubs or even repeatedly poking you in the arm like a sibling) when you ask for personal space?
This might be a sign they don't respect your right to your own body and could try to push those boundaries to much more dangerous limits in the future.
They're either on the rebound, practicing a particularly toxic version of serial monogamy, or a malignant narcissist. Anyone who wants you all to themselves is likely someone worth running far, far away from before they sink their claws in any deeper.
Research has shown that among married couples, rolling eyes at each can be a common predictor of divorce, and why wouldn't it be?
what if they think it's fine to carry on intense emotional texts and conversations with someone else as long as they never physically cheat?
Heck, maybe one of you wants an open relationship and the other will never be okay with that idea.
Some people simply don't like splashing their personal life onto social media or even talking much about their feelings with friends, but that's different from flat-out hiding your partnership, which is about as glaringly red as a flag can get!
