Some teens may not want to discuss romantic topics with parents. Find close friends or adults who you feel comfortable talking with about romantic relationships.
Relationships during your teen years can be hard. If you are in a relationship in which you feel uncomfortable, it is important to think about whether the relationship is healthy or not. A relationship is unhealthy if the other person demands constant attention or tries to limit your contact with others outside of the relationship. A very unhealthy relationship can lead to violence, depression, self-harm, or suicide.
