The fact is that while things may seem very black and white on paper, in reality human relationships are far more complex – and it’s all too easy to forget the bad parts of a relationship.Human nature is to see the past through rose-tinted glasses.Nine times out of ten there’s a very good reason why a relationship ended, and therefore a very good reason why it shouldn’t be rekindled.Yet most people have a tale, or know someone who has a tale, of a disastrous reunion with an ex.
by Tina Hotton Mahony Prevalence of police-reported dating violence Victims of dating violence most likely to be female Differences in rates of dating violence between the sexes decline with age Increase in police-reported rates of dating violence Common assault most likely offence in dating violence Similar proportion of male and female victims of dating violence sustained injuries More than 4 in 10 incidents of dating violence occur in the victim's home Dating violence involving female victims more likely to lead to charges Homicides perpetrated in dating relationships Summary Methodology Detailed data tables References Notes According to results of the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (NLSCY), approximately 71% of youth in Canada report being in a dating relationship by the age of 15.Among those that have engaged in a dating relationship, 55% had their first dating relationship by the age of 12.Although dating violence occurs at any stage of life, most of the Canadian research published to date has focused on high school, college or university students (Wekerle , 2009)(Straus, 2004)(De Keseredy & Kelly, 1993).We spent two hours in a retail store taking about decorating her room and she wants me to come over during the weekend to help her paint, etc. I know I need to play it cool, but if I like her should I torture myself more by hanging out with her?I want to ask her if I have a shot but that might turn her off again. Thanks, Anonymous Dear KF, Oh the classic “Come here, but wait that’s too close!I just met her today for coffee/tea and we spent 4 hours together (3rd meet up). I think we connected on a level that we should’ve been connecting with all along. To take the stress and pressure of dating out, I told her that I’d be ok as friends.All she does is smile and then she made a comment that “since the pressure is off, it makes everything a bit more intriguing.” My question is: I don’t want to mess things up. I just turned 30 and am looking for something serious, she is too (She’ll be 29 next month).While No Name-Calling Week does have some laudable goals, such as “eliminating harmful name-calling,” unfortunately, the event also emphasizes the usual homosexuality indoctrination that has made GLSEN infamous.If you’ve discovered that your child’s school is celebrating GLSEN’s No Name-Calling Week, here are some things you might want to be aware of …Estimates of physical and sexual coercion among college students are even higher, ranging from 20% to 30% (Wekerle , 2009).This report examines the prevalence and characteristics of incidents of police-reported dating violence in Canada.In mid to late January, kids in public schools across the land participate in an event sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).The event—No Name-Calling Week—is aimed primarily at elementary and middle school kids.In my eyes she’s my dream girl: classic beauty, sophisticated, brilliant and beautiful.
