Now, when we think about respect, we’re not referring to chivalry, like opening the door for your girlfriend. Respect can come in many forms.

Respect also means that no one is calling the shots in your relationship, or, put differently, both of you do. It means you don’t allow your partner to have power over you. It means you don’t criticize them or impose your own view on them.
