Now, let's consider a situation that many teens face after they have been dating for a long time: whether or not they are ready to have sex.
- Are you aware of your options and the consequences of being sexually active?
- Are you balancing all aspects of your life in your decision, including your present desires and future goals?
- Then, make a conscious choice.
You have a choice about the kind of relationships you want to have with a boyfriend or girlfriend. Remember, if you are pressured or forced to have sex or perform sexual acts against your will, you are a victim of dating violence.
Also, just letting it happen can have consequences, too. For those of you not thinking about sexuality, please don't tune out now. Someday, you'll face these choices.
