Love life

First crushes, first kisses, first times… Figuring it all out can be rather confusing. From who to talk with, to what to expect, we’re here to help one another.

Is there anything more confusing than relationships? Do they like you, how much, should you ask them out, how, what will your mates think, what will theirs think? *sighs* It can be exhausting – especially if it’s your first serious relationship. In this video, young people share their first relationship tips so have watch and be safe in the knowledge that everyone panics about these things. You will find a way through!

It’s really hard to tell if someone likes you. I mean, there’s no possible way of knowing right?? Actually there is…. talk to them! It might sound completely crazy but you never know until you try. Maybe you like someone and you wanna know if they like you back… the best thing to do there is – you guessed it! – talk to them! You haven’t got to get all romantic or anything, just spend some time with them and learn wheher you can vibe together. If things progress, that’s great (and SO SCARY) but chill – make sure you’re relaxed and try not to overthink everything. Don’t worry about kissing – you’re first kiss is pretty much guaranteed to be awkward – everyone’s is! If you’re giong any further it gets more serious. Make sure you both feel super comfortable and no-one feels any pressure to have sex. Don’t get pressured into anything you don’t want to do! Take a step back and talk to friends, siblings or – call us crazy – maybe even parents or teachers if you’re really worried. They might just have some good advice because, believe it or not, they will have been through this before!

So don’t panic! Just take your time, make sure it feels right and talk to someone if you’re unsure. Relationships are confusing, yes, but should also be fun!
