All relationships have their ups and downs, but sometimes, we feel like something else might be going on. When things feel off, we clash with our partners, or our days are filled with endless bickering, we might be struck by the thought that we’re in a toxic relationship. 

What is a toxic relationship?

There’s no definitive line between a relationship that is toxic and one that isn’t, which is why it’s often so hard to tell. But if things are consistently unpleasant, you feel drained, your boundaries are constantly crossed, and the bad times outweigh the good ones, your relationship might have crossed the line into toxic territory.

How do I know if I’m in a toxic relationship?

This questionnaire will help you look at your relationship and see whether it might be filling your cup or draining it completely. While we can also have toxic relationships with friends, family, and coworkers, the language in this questionnaire is geared toward romantic relationships.

Disclaimer: This questionnaire is not a diagnostic tool. If you believe that you or your partner may need additional support, please speak with a mental health professional.
