Setting better boundaries?

How does one who’s an empath by nature go about setting better boundaries in general, in relationships, when meeting people etc.?

I’ve been practicing this lately, and some of the questions I’ll consciously ask myself:

When dating & in relationships – if I was dating myself, is this something I would be okay with doing to myself? If the answer is no, that person had crossed my boundaries. That’s a nice reminder not to be overly compassionate or keep giving someone the benefit of the doubt.

In general – how much time am I dedicating to helping this person, and is it worth it?

In general – Am I overlooking any needs right now by spending time with this person, and can I be doing something that would benefit me instead?
