In healthy relationships, whether it’s in a friendship or a more romantic one, both partners depend on each other equally. Codependent relationships are more one-sided. Usually the codependent gives more and sacrifices their own wants and needs to please the other person. Here are four signs that you might have codependent tendencies.

Healthy relationships allow both parties to have individual lives outside that particular relationship. That means individually having your own friends and relationships, as well as spending time doing your own thing.

Codependents give to their partners excessively and don’t get back in return in their attempts to “secure” the attachment. That means neglecting their own needs and wants.
