Dating

Reasons for Dating

  • Dating provides opportunities to develop social skills, such as communicating and interacting with a person of the opposite gender.
  • It allows people to learn more about themselves.
  • Some people discover new interests, reaffirm their values, and start thinking about the type of person with whom they might like to build a future.

Dating

Infatuation and Affection

  • Sometimes when a teen is attracted to someone, an infatuation develops.
  • Although such feelings are natural, it is important not to mistake them for genuine affection.

Dating

Ways of Expressing Affection

  • Communicating with and listening to each other
  • Holding hands
  • Hugging
  • Spending quality time together

Dating

Deciding to Date

There’s no reason to let anyone pressure you into dating if you’re not ready for it. Some teens choose not to date because:

  • They’re shy around persons of the opposite gender.
  • They have other interests or time commitments.
  • Their family traditions or values don’t allow it.
slide7

Dating

Group Dating

As a way of easing into dating, many teens go out with groups of friends of both genders. Being part of a group:

  • Allows teens to develop and practice their social skills without having the pressure of focusing on only one person.
  • Takes some of the attention away from the individual, helping him or her relax.
  • Relieves the pressure of being alone with someone new.

Dating

What to Do on a Date

  • What you decide to do on a date depends on the person you are with and your common interests.
  • If you don’t know the person well, a movie might be a good choice.
  • Going out to dinner or to a school dance are also good options.
  • You might also try attending a sports event such as a baseball game.
  • When you get to know each other, you will probably find activities that both you and your date enjoy.

Dating

Sports or Athletic Activities

  • You can consider a date that includes athletic activities such as horseback riding, cycling, hiking, and bowling.

Healthful Behaviors in a Dating Relationship

  • Some teens choose to have an ongoing dating relationship with only one person.
  • This type of relationship may help you develop skills and behaviors that will someday help you mature into a thoughtful caring adult who can commit to a relationship.
  • However, remember that your teen years are a time for trying many different roles and relationships.
  • Although beginning and ending dating relationships can be difficult, such experiences help you mature emotionally.
