Being in a relationship with someone should be a caring and loving experience, and even though every couple goes through rough patches, there's a difference between what's healthy and what's not. Unhealthy relationships consist of physical, verbal and/or emotional abuse, all of which are unacceptable.
Some of the things you shouldn't put up with include being yelled at, shoved, controlled, ignored, or made to feel afraid of your partner. This goes for guys and girls -- both sexes can be victims of dating abuse.
Your relationship should be based on love and respect. If you're unsure about your situation and are looking for more information or support, online resources like LoveIsRespect.org and ChooseRespect.org are available to help to people in need.
