Hi and thank you for writing to JA
You do not say how old you are or how long you have been in this relationship and both would matter in my response. Overall I would say never allow anyone to name call you. It is childish and indicates that your boyfriend is probably not a good bet over the long haul.
Let me know if you wish to provide more information so I can better help you on this.
Thank you for your response. I guess I should have included more information..
I'm 41 and he is 37, we were fighting and I called him a jerk. Actually, I think this negative interaction carried over from the previous night when I said something that made him mad. (but we didn't argue)
I've never allowed or stayed in a realtionship where I have been called curse word names. We all get mad, but some restraint should be shown towards the other person.
