Dating, Romantic Relationships and Encounters

There are many types of relationships that we form with people throughout our lifetime.

We can develop friendships, dating relationships, brief intimate encounters or experiences, and more committed and long-term romantic relationships.

Regardless of the type of relationship you form with others, there are some important things to consider.

Things to consider:
  • Be safe and choose partners who respect you  and whom you respect.
  • Find a balance that works for you of time for yourself, your friends and family, and the things you enjoy.
  • Communicate your expectations, needs and boundaries with your partners.
  • Remember that you are not the only person in the relationship, so listening to and respecting your partners and friends is essential.
  • If a relationship is not working out for you, consider safe and healthy options to deal with ending it.
