Dear I Think I Am In A Bad Relationship,

TeenhealthFX cannot tell you what to do or how to feel, but we can help point out key characteristics of a healthy vs unhealthy (bad) relationship. Being called names and having someone be mean to you regardless of them being your boyfriend or even a friend are characteristics of an unhealthy relationship. A healthy relationship is one that consists of mutual respect, open and honest communication, and understanding.

In addition, you mention that your boyfriend gets mad at you for using TikTok and other apps. This is another characteristic of an unhealthy relationship. Having mutual trust and the ability to be an individual help a person stay true to who they are. Since your boyfriend gets mad, it could be his insecurity and lack of trust in you that is causing an issue. TeenHealthFX suggests it would be a good idea to talk to your boyfriend about how you feel in an open and honest conversation and go from there.

Good luck!
