Here’s a new booklet for young men – aged around 14 to 20 —- that talks about sex, relationships, power and respect.
It’s called Sex, Love and Other Stuff.
It has been specifically developed from what young men told us they wanted to know — stuff like, what a ‘relationship’ is, how to talk to girls, and about sex.
There’s quite a bit of info about how to give and get respect, how to communicate with a partner or someone you’re interested in. And there’s a checklist to suss out how respectful a relationship is.
Sex, Love and Other Stuff includes information on:
- What respect is and what it looks like in a relationship?
- What different sorts of relationships look like?
- What girls want in a relationship?
- How to check if someone wants to have sex
- Statistics on young people, sex and relationships (like ‘How many are having sex or in relationships?’)
- How to help a friend who has experienced violence
- How to talk to your girlfriend/boyfriend or to a girl you like
Are you thinking about giving online dating a try? Its becoming a lot less taboo these days, and has become a very common way for partners to initially meet. According to the New York Times, up to 35% of relationships start online in 2018, with millenials naturally leading the pack.
We recommend the following dating sites and apps as places to find real and meaningful relationships (notice that apps like Tinder and Bumble won't be added, as they tend to be more of "hook-up" type of apps, and that is not something we condone)
OkCupid - A great dating site with a strong emphasis on alternative lifestyles and the LGBTQ community.
Match.com - One of the oldest and well known dating websites still holds a lot of value even in 2018 as a great way to find a partner online.
Findmate - A newer entry to the online dating field, focused on starting meaningful relationships with people from all over the world.
Best of luck in your online dating endeavors, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
