Good relationships are based on respect, trust and communication.
Most people have more than one romantic relationship during their life. Going out with different people helps you find out who you are compatible with and what you want from a relationship.
It’s fine not to be in a relationship too. Lots of people are single and many are single by choice.
If you do choose to be in a relationship with someone, it should be a positive experience. It won’t be perfect every day and some days you will want your own space, or you may argue, but overall it should be fun and help you feel good about yourself.
If you’re in a relationship, you don’t need to stop seeing other important people in your life like friends and family. It’s important to have a balance.[clear-line]
