Teen Dating Violence Resources
Let’s face it - Dating Relationships are just hard. There’s so much drama involved – don’t act like you don’t know what we’re talking about here. Arguments, jealousy, accusations, insecurity, the thrill and excitement. It can be really confusing. What looks like love might just be abusive (excessive jealousy/ possessiveness /over-attentiveness). And you might end up giving up things about yourself that you wish, later, you hadn’t.
We ALL love to be loved – Just make sure that’s actually what you’re getting. Take a look at the links below for additional input on what to look for and how to stay safe!
