Me, Myself, and I

This book is about the relationships in your life and how to make and keep them healthy. But before you start thinking about how you relate to others, it makes sense first to understand your relationship with yourself. The way you feel about yourself affects nearly every choice you make. This includes your behavior, your attitude, and your goals, as well as the people you choose to hang out with and get close to. So what kind of relationship do you have with yourself? How well do you even know yourself? What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? Are you aware of your own feelings and how to express them in healthy ways? Are you comfortable in new situations? When dealing with people you dont agree with, do you stand up for yourself and your beliefs? Not sure of all the answers yet? Thats okay. Lifes for learning, and learning about you is an excellent place to start. The better you know yourself and 3 whats right for you, the easier it is to make wise choices. And wise choices are

By now, youre responsible enough to leave the house alone, meet friends, and go places with them, and being independent like this is pretty cool (after all, it wasnt so long ago that you couldnt go anywhere without adult L you love supervision).

What most teens really need are opportunities to develop healthy friendships with girls and guys. If you think friends arent as important as boyfriends/girlfriends, youre wrong! Friendships, in the long run, are often more meaningful and lasting than romantic relationships. Youre probably more relaxed, open, and trusting with your friends, because you know and understand each other well, and the bond between you is strong. Romantic relationships, on the other hand, may be based more on physical attraction than common interests. Sometimes its hard for young people in such relationships to build trust. Whats all this leading up to? If you have a boyfriend/girlfriend, be sure to still make time for

Sex and Unhealthy Romantic Relationships


When youre a teen, your body experiences hormone surges, physical changes, and an awakening of sexual feelings. Combine those changes and emotions with exposure to explicit song lyrics and sensual images on TV, in movies, and in magazines, add a dose of peer pressure from friends who may push you to become sexually active, and you may be wondering, Should I be . having sex? Is it right or wrong? Whats right for me? What will happen if I have sex?

Sex is a complicated issuefor adults as well as teens. This is because being sexually active involves deep emotional feelings and potentially life-changing physical risks. Sex also changes relationships and not always for the better (despite what the media images portray). Before you get too intimate, consider how sex might affect your feelings about yourself and your boyfriend/girlfriend and what the physical consequences might be.

Regardless of sexual activity, romances during the teen years are often short lived. For this reason, its important to recognize the warning signs of a relationship thats in trouble. When its clear that you and your boyfriend/girlfriend want different things, you need to know how to say good-bye respectfully and move on with your life.

Sexual activity can be classified in a number of ways. It can refer to act which involve one person, such as masturbation, or two people, such as sexual intercourse, oral sex or mutual masturbation. If there are more than two participate in the sex act it may be referred to as group sex.

Have a baby before you ready to. Regret having sex at such as early age. Get and STD and does not go away and if you get STD you have to get the medicine the rest of your life. If a family member find out there will be lots of troubles. End up pregnant with more than one baby at a time. If you stop seeing the person you have sex with, you have a chance of later having to get tested for and STD or several.

Before having sex with your partner let you partner know to use condoms and why you feels its important well before the heat of the moment. Drinking and taking drugs may affect your ability to make safe decisions. If you are in longterm relationship and want to have sex

Sexuality is a complex aspect of our personality and 'self'. Our sexuality is defined by sexual thoughts, desires and experiences. In many ways sexuality is the force that empowers us to express and display strong, emotional feelings for another person and is a natural stimulus for the procreation of our species. The 'thing' that attracts one person to another may not always be sexual - it could be sense of humor, personality, 'likeability', compatibility, or

Before doing anything, ask and answer the following questions How do you think sex will change this relationship? How might it change the way you feel about your boyfriend? How might it change how he feels about you? Do you completely trust your boyfriend and his feelings for you? Does he completely trust you and your feelings for him? Are you willing to risk pregnancy and/or getting a sexually transmitted disease? How will you feel about yourself if you become sexually active? If you have sex, how will you feel if the relationship ends (which it probably will eventually, because most teen relationships do)? What expectations will your boyfriend have after you do it? (Will he expect to

Age limits The law that applies in Victoria depends on your age. A person can be charged with a sexual offence if they perform a sexual act that breaks these age limits, even if you agree to it. Under 12 years old If you are under 12, a person can't have sex with you or touch you sexually or perform a sexual act in front of you, even if you agree. Twelve to 15 years old If you are 12 to 15, a person cant have sex with you, touch you sexually or perform a sexual act in front of you if they are more than two years older than you, even if you agree. However, it is not an offence if the person honestly believed that there was less than a two-year age difference between you. This is exactly two years. For example, if a person is 17 and has sex with someone who is 15, it is not a crime. But if the person was 18, it is a crime unless the person believed the person was 16. Sixteen to 17 years old A person, who is caring for you or supervising you, like a teacher, youth

What is sex therapy, and what happens in a sex therapy session? What is the definition of sex addiction -- and what does it entail? Is having cyber sex considered unhealthy -- and does it constitute cheating on a spouse, even if you never meet your cyber sex or phone sex partner?
