My friends and I were piled on my dorm bed, staring at the phone and willing it to ring.
The fall formal dance was just a week away and I was hoping a boy I liked would ask me to go with him.
Teens often think some behaviors, like teasing and name-calling, are a “normal” part of a relationship.
However, these behaviors can become abusive and develop into more serious forms of violence.

Sure, teens still meet in the same ways that kids always have, but the low social risks associated with flirting online have made that option more acceptable to some than trying to talk face to face in a crowded school hallway.
At least that’s what teens said in a recent story about online romance in the student newspaper at my daughters’ suburban Maryland high school.
Some parents may feel comfortable allowing a mature, responsible seventeen- or eighteen-year-old to go out on individual dates.There was no way I could leave the room: What if he called and I wasn’t there to answer the phone? Dorm rooms didn’t come with answering machines and the development of voice mail was light years away.My budding romance depended on whether I heard the shrill ring of an old-fashioned land-line phone. The social lives of today’s teens don’t revolve around waiting for their phones to ring.According to that story, “students initiate relationships online to meet new people, avoid stressful in-person meetings and hide their dating lives from their parents.” That’s certainly the case for some kids, according to my 17-year-old.Unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime.
