Love is Respect is an online resource for older teens and young adults.
Its primary focus is on intimate partner relationships with emphasis on “being on the same page” with one’s partner regarding definitions, boundaries and consent, “an ongoing mutual agreement between partners about what they want to experience.”
Love is Respect website tabs are:
- About dating
- Healthy Relationships

You might consider informing your students in Grades 11 and 12 of this non-curricular resource.
Love is Respect was launched in 2007 by the National Domestic Violence Hotline and National Dating Abuse Helpline to become the “first 24-hour resource for teens experiencing dating violence and relationship abuse.”
In 2011, Break the Cycle became another partner of Love is Respect, and 24-hour text services in addition to our phone and live chat services were launched.
