This may be a time in your life when you are meeting new people, or getting closer to people you have met before. Sometimes this can be a time to be alone as well –a time for exploring the person you would like to be in a relationship.
Relationships can be fun and fabulous when things are great – but you’ve heard the songs about broken hearts – sometimes they can be hard and painful as well. It’s unlikely that you are going to meet the person of your dreams by the time you leave care…..so that means it’s likely there will be relationships and break ups for you down the track.
Some relationships can be healthy and still a bit tricky from time to time – it’s about different personal boundaries and working out what is going to be OK for you. However some relationships can be unhealthy – and can end up crossing the line into a pattern of controlling behaviours that can be scary. If you are feeling afraid in a relationship, or worried that your behaviour is scaring someone else, this could mean you are in an unhealthy relationship.
For more information to see if your relationship is healthy or unhealthy, go to The Line – take the test or watch the videos. There are also phone supports listed if you need someone to talk things over.
Not sure if you want to be with boys or girls? Or just have some questions and not sure what to do about it?
