One in three teenagers experiences emotional and/or physical abuse in a dating relationship and both are detrimental to their well-being, health and safety. In dating abuse, one partner tries to maintain power and control over the other through some kind of mistreatment. If you can answer yes to any of the questions below, please call or text Safe+Sound’s 24-hour confidential hotline at 866-685-1122 immediately and know that it is not your fault.
Setting boundaries is an important part of any relationship. Both partners should know each other’s wants and limitations. You should feel comfortable communicating your needs and concerns to your partner without ever feeling afraid. If your partner disregards your feelings, then you are not receiving the respect you deserve.
Relationships can be confusing. It’s often difficult for teens and adults to know when a behavior crosses the line from healthy to unhealthy. Use these warning signs to help you recognize unhealthy behaviors in your relationship.
Remember to trust your instincts and listen to your gut. If you’re in a situation that makes you feel uncomfortable, stay calm and remove yourself from the situation. If you are in immediate danger, call 911.
