We've all experienced love. We've loved and been loved by parents, brothers, sisters, friends, even pets. But romantic love is different. It's an intense, new feeling unlike any of these other ways of loving.
What is love? How much do you care about one another? What do you love about the other person?
By Stephanie Kirby. Reviewer Whitney White, MS. There is a lot of debate and stigma that surrounds teen love.
Teenage love is something that packs enough innocent charm to make even the coldest hearts go warm. It is love in its most pure, immaculate and pristine form since it is the first time ever in life that the heart has blossomed to love. As adults, we perceive love as something more complex than it is, but not during the teenage years when it is just a simple sensation of caring for someone whole-heartedly. While many may argue that teenage love is ignorant, but hey, ignorance is bliss, right!
While romantic relationship concerns are a major reason for adolescent help-seeking from counselling services, we have a limited understanding of what types of relationship issues are most strongly related to mental health issues and suicide risk. This paper used records of counselling sessions with adolescents 10—18 years seeking help from a national youth counselling service for a romantic relationship concern to: i explore what types and stage pre, during, post of romantic concerns adolescents seek help for; ii how they are associated with mental health problems, self-harm and suicide risk; and iii whether these associations differ by age and gender. In line with developmental-contextual theory, results suggest that concerns about the initiation of relationships are common in early adolescence, while concerns about maintaining and repairing relationships increase with age.
