Different terms for dating
That’s why it’s important to recognize the warning signs!Whether you call it “dating” or something else, all partners should agree on a definition and the same ground rules for the relationship.We use the gender-neutral term “partners” to refer to people in an intimate relationship, but you might use a different word (and that’s okay)!
To maintain a healthy relationship, you need to be able to forgive your partner for their past mistakes. Try to remember: being with a person you cannot forgive is not going to do either of you any good.At loveisrespect, we get all kinds of questions about dating. If you have questions of your own or need more information, you can always chat with a trained peer advocate!
