Can I get unemployment if I quit?

I have been at my job for 2 years and about 8 months ago I got a new boss, we started seeing each other. I was a manager and while dating him I recieved 2 raises and amazing evuals. After a few arguements outside of work we slowly started to cut things off. A few weeks after a huge arguement at a night club I recieved my first write up at work by him, about a week later I was demoted (for having a bad attitude) I have gone out a few times with him since the demotion, after the dates I recieved new job privlages (like doing interviews for cash) then however I found out he was sexually harassing (via text) a good friend of mine and employee (she quit) now I hate even going to work. He does not even talk to me anymore but does make smug comments that I don't respond to. Can I collect unemployment if I quit? is there anything else I should do?

Maybe. The issue is whether you quit "for good cause attributible to the employer." You should file and explain why it was that you felt like you were forced to quit
