Recommended Posts

I think that covers everything. If it doesn’t, please let me know and I’ll add it!

 And the categories could probably be “yes”, “yes, but ask first”, “yes, but with certain restrictions”, “no”, “maybe; ask first”. 

I think it is a fairly good idea to have a list of specifics to outline exactly what is comfortable for you in any sort of close relationship. You would obviously have to have a specific person in mind when filling it out, but I hope it is useful in some way, even if it is to just give you ideas about your own limits

You could use it for a Want, Will, Won't list. Which dosn't require a specific person in mind. As well as different versions for different people.
