Adolescent dating relationships

Relationships can support sexual development, an important part of growing to adulthood.Most adolescents believe that sex should occur within the context of a romantic relationship, and while not all relationships are sexual, most sexually active youth are monogamous.

When relationships are characterized by intimacy and good communication, youth are happier with themselves.Romantic relationships have much to teach adolescents about communication, emotion, empathy, identity, and (for some couples) sex.While these lessons can often provide a valuable foundation for long-term relationships in adulthood, they are also important contributors to growth, resilience, and happiness in the teen years.Most of a child's friends are likely to be of the same gender.Puberty launches intense interest in romantic relationships.
