Yes, that is the way negotiations should work. But the EU seem to work on the basis of "tell us what you want, and we'll tell you why you can't have it". Which means that when the UK puts a proposal on the table the EU can choose whether to accept it, or to have the UK leave with no deal.
We (the UK) are leaving the EU by the end of January. After that we will not be negotiating as supplicants.
