Finding your way through a new relationship at any age is difficult, but when you are young and have not had much experience, it can be even more difficult to know what's ok and what's not ok. 

We all want to find 'the one' but not everyone is the right one.  The LoveRespect website from Women's Aid has been designed with the help of young people who have experienced domestic abuse within their own relationships.  Real stories and examples of behaviour that is not ok help to make sense of things that you might be questioning about your own relationship.  It also has advice on what to do about it for yourself or for a friend you might be worried about. 

If you ever feel you are in immediate danger from your boyfriend or girlfriend, always call the police on 999.
