Defination of dating

Many parents set a dating age for their kids according to their culture, views and beliefs.

Abuse can affect all types of relationships, not just long-term or committed relationships. Dating abuse and relationship issues can be hard topics to discuss, but in our experience, getting support can be really helpful. Here at loveisrespect, we have trained peer advocates who are friendly, non-judgmental and available 24/7.

Even if your relationship is casual or you’ve only hooked up once, you can still experience abuse. You can chat with one of our advocates at any time of the day just by clicking the chat button, text us by sending “loveis” (capitalization does not matter) to 22522 or call us at 1-866-331-9474. So feel free to contact us anytime and know that we’ll keep our conversations completely confidential.

Dating someone your family doesn’t like can be really hard.

It may cause conflict that makes you feel like you can’t be honest or even near the people you love.

Remember the rules for a healthy relationship apply to hook-ups, too.

There’s no singular right answer to this question, because everyone is different!

Even if you are “hooking up,” your partner should not be disrespectful or controlling.

You should be able to communicate your feelings without being afraid of negative consequences or abuse.

Having a child together could feel like more than just dating, or you might have chosen not to be together anymore; there is no one way that relationships must work.

Another possibility is that you and your partner are married.

Consider why your family doesn’t like your partner or why your partner doesn’t like them.
