Venus above, child!

I have all of this in my relationship (with a man). I know other women who do as well. I based some of it on my work with victims of domestic abuse (as in — what is the opposite of what abusive men do/how abusive relationships look). The list is the minimum standards I expect from my relationships. I’m not interested in settling for anything less. Any one who reads it is free to make their own choices about what they will and won’t accept from their relationships.
