  • Description:
    Dating violence is a type of intimate partner violence. It occurs between two people in a close relationship. There are three common types of dating violence: Physical-This occurs when a partner is pinched, hit, shoved, or kicked; Emotional-This means threatening a partner or harming his or her sense of self-worth. Examples include name calling, teasing, threats, bullying, or keeping him/her away from friends and family; Sexual-This is forcing a partner to engage in a sex act when he or she does not or cannot consent. Unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime. Dating violence often starts with teasing and name calling. These behaviors are often thought to be a “"normal" part of a relationship. But these behaviors can lead to more serious violence like physical assault and rape.
