For many teens and young adults, dating can be as confusing and emotionally tumultuous as it is exciting.

This book answers young readers' most pressing questions about how to create and maintain physically and emotionally healthy relationships, as well as offering guidance on navigating such common issues as conflict resolution and jealousy.

Although many adolescents are interested in dating, entering into the world of romantic relationships can spark a number of difficult questions. How do you know when you’re ready to date? How do you establish boundaries, build trust, and communicate effectively? Are conflict and jealousy normal, and how do you deal with them? What are the warning signs that a relationship is toxic or abusive? How do you handle a breakup and the sometimes messy aftermath of a relationship?

Books in Greenwood’s Q&A Health Guides series follow a reader-friendly question-and-answer format that anticipates readers’ needs and concerns. Prevalent myths and misconceptions are identified and dispelled, and a collection of case studies illustrates key concepts and issues through relatable stories and insightful recommendations. Each book also includes a section on health literacy, equipping teens and young adults with practical tools and strategies for finding, evaluating, and using credible sources of health information both on and off the internet—important skills that contribute to a lifetime of healthy decision-making.
