It might happen someday that a person does sexual things to us that we don’t ask for or say ok to. Or maybe we only say ok because we’re afraid of what might happen we say no. If this happens to us, it’s never our fault – no matter what. We didn’t do anything wrong.
It might happen someday that a partner starts hurting us physically, or starts telling us we’re no good. Again, this isn’t our fault. We didn’t do anything wrong and we don’t deserve it.
If that’s happening to us now, what can we do about it? Who can help us?
If that happened to us in the past, it might still feel bad. Who can help us work through this? What if we’re interested in dating but also scared to trust someone? What can we do about that?
Let’s face it – dating can be amazing, exciting, and complicated. Where do we meet a potential partner? How do we let someone know we’re interested in them romantically? How do we figure out if they’re interested in us? When do we take a risk and when do we play it safe? How do we start dating? How do we keep a relationship going? How do we figure out if it’s working for us? How do we change a relationship if it isn’t working? How do we end a relationship if it’s not working and we can’t change it? How do we take care of ourselves if we want a partner and don’t have one? If we get dumped? Who are the right people to ask about these things?
