Fight

My boyfriend and I got into a fight over the word retaliate. He was being an asshole and told me he would be nice if I would retaliate (the act of being nice)likewise. I told him he meant reciprocate because retaliate has a negative connotation. He is adamant about using retaliate and additionally says he speaks english better than I do.

So linguaphiles would you use retaliate or reciprocate?
