Humans are social beings and we are often involved in different types of relationships. It can be romance, friendship, family, work mates... We can have relationships in real life or on the Internet. Some of these relationships are good for us and others can seriously affect our physical, emotional or mental health.

I'll start you off with friends they are like elevators you know? They can bring you up or they can bring you down. Some morons are just elevator shafts where you just drop. You should never have people who bring you down in ur life, they are gonna be there but dont go near them.

Ohh, lets have fun with this one. Unhealthy relationship #1 (oh I've had many)

Experience(s):
First one was in roughly in 8th grade. God that was hell. I went through a couple of years of depression due to a string of unfortunate events. Some of which being my friend was raped, grandfather died a few days before Christmas, friend's friend died in a car accident due to a drunk driver ( I cannot stress this enough, don't drink and drive =( ) etc. Anyway, I vented on my best friend at the time. Bad idea. Because she did everything in her power to make me happy, which failed miserably. Know what happened then? My friend got depressed because she couldn't help her best friend. Oh the irony. That relationship was unhealthy from then on. And I have many more I may share later.

Advice:
Unhealthy relationships are everywhere. Infact, probably every relationship ever is unhealthy in at least some way. Thing is knowing your limit of how much you can take and who is dishing out the stress. Stick with people that make the hard times worthwhile. Try to get used to people that linger on the edge, and make your life better by losing the people that make your life Hell. Thats about the best advice I can think of.

I agree with wolfwood.
People who bring you down in any kind of relationship are there for their own personal gain, whatever that might be.

I had someone tell me that I was doing everything "wrong"...tried to talk me out of going to college, where I worked, who I hung out with. I eventually just had to cut them off.

unhealthy relationships are abusive mentally, physically,sexually, emotionally (take your pick)
are one-sided in that one person subjugates another.
i don't understand why the abused person won't leave when it first happens, but if it happens more than once, run and don't look back. this applies to guys too. my male cousin was killed by his crazy ex-girlfriend. he got tired of her mess and broke-up with her. she walked up to him at a barbecue and shot him point blank in the head, he died right in front of his family and friends, she conviently shot herself next. too bad she didn't die. she only got 12 years in jail.

I agree 100%. Sex is something you have to be ready for yourself, not just because your boyfriend wants it. Also, sometimes the pressure for sex is highly stessful. It's a big step, something you have to be ready for mentally, physically, and emotionally, otherwise you just can't handle the situation like your ment to.

I would consider incest(love between siblings) unhealthy. That is just sick. I came from an girls family( i dun have a dad) and i understand that sometimes siblings of different sexes fall in love. Please correct me if i'm wrong. In this case, parents should be more watchful. Otherwise, it'll lead to uncontrollable circumstances.Being promiscuos(sp?) is unhealthy. Having sex with multiple partners in any way is very sickening and in some cases they're simptoms of mental illness.

I think it can be unhealthy if you are in a relationship with someone that is controling or possessive and it can sometimes get out of hand.
I'm sorry if the topic says coco670 is the topic starter. I didn't realise I was on my sister's profile before.

if the person your dating beats you and treats you like crap and your still with them that is an unhealthy relationship.
a one sided relationship where your expected to make sacrafices and get nothing in return is unhealthy and yadda yadda. it depends on the situations and all. there are so many types of unhealthy relationships. it all depends on the people and the circumstances. why do you think your in an unhealthyrelationship?

okay heres my relationship advice. Be Freaking Greedy and do what makes you happy :D. If the person your with truly syncs up with you then it will all work out. if they dont then well it was doomed to fail at some point. Btw what i mean by be greedy is to um like dont give up something that makes you happy unless it would make you happier to give it up for the person your with....make sacrifices because you want to not because they want you to....yes relationships are about compromise but if you arent greedy to an extent then you will simply suffer in the relationship and be unhappy.
