Non-Negotiables - Creating A List For Healthy Dating
Today's episode we are discussing our non-negotiable items in a relationship.  Non-negotiables are the things you will not negotiate on. They follow your values and principles and define not only what you will and won't accept from others, but also what you will and won't accept from yourself. This list is going to be a tool to use for dating, so I can weed out the time-wasters quickly.  What are your non-negotiables?  Get the Jill Scott vs Erykah Badu Playlist on Apple Music here  Support the podcast by donating https://anchor.fm/hereforit/support Visit my blog for more weekly content. www.elainemichelle.com #relationships  #dating #relationshipgoals #datingadvice #singlemom
