Discover the social skills required for successful dating experiences and avoid unhealthy relationships that can bring you down. Teens from grades 7 to 12 who are dating now, have ever dated, have never dated, or hope to date in the future learn how to create and maintain positive relationships, building on friendship skills gained from Friend Me! by the same authors. Written in a clever "top 10 tips" format, the authors recount actual teen dating stories and explain the skills used or needed in the scenarios. From these examples teens learn to differentiate compliments from flattery, gifts from bribes, generosity from possessiveness, and encouragement from control. There is discussion for using social media, such as Facebook and texting, that can enhance or destroy relationships. All the stories will help teens stop and think about their own experiences and what they should expect for successful dating. 120 pgs.
