Intimate and Romantic Relationships

A Romantic Relationship is a strong connection you have with another person. It is more than being friends or even best friends. Some people call it being "in love".

When you are in a romantic relationship, you typically:

  • Want to be around the other person a lot.
  • You think they are attractive, or cute.
  • You feel happy and excited when you think about them or are around them.

When a romantic relationship grows into an intimate relationship, it sometimes means that people share intimate things, such as emotions and feelings.  It could also mean that they do things that are sexual with each other.
