|Is it weird to have a boyfreind in first year|
Hi there, welcome to Ask Alex,
It’s absolutely not weird to have a boyfriend or girlfriend in your first year of secondary school. It’s a time when you’re starting to explore your feelings, interests, and relationships, and it’s completely normal to develop connections with others. It can be an exciting and valuable experience to learn about friendship and dating during this period of your life.
If you ever feel unsure or need someone to talk to about your relationship or any other concerns, there is support available. Remember, it’s important to talk openly with your parents or trusted adults about your relationships as well. They can offer guidance and support to help you navigate this exciting and sometimes challenging part of growing up. So, don’t hesitate to seek support and guidance from the people who care about you.
B4udecide (b4udecide.ie/) is another valuable organisation that provides support and resources for young people when it comes to relationships. They aim to help individuals make informed decisions about their relationships, emphasizing consent, healthy boundaries, and respectful communication. It’s essential for young people to have access to various support services to ensure they have a range of resources to turn to when they need guidance or assistance with their relationships.
If you ever find yourself in a situation where you have questions or concerns about your relationship or if you simply need someone to talk to, don’t hesitate to reach out to Childline. We are here 24/7, and waiting for you to get in touch. We provide a confidential, non-judgemental support service for young people 18 years and under. Our freephone number is 1800 66 66 66 or you can reach us by Live Chat at our website childline.ie.
Remember that seeking support and information is a sign of maturity, and it’s a positive step towards making healthy choices in your relationships.
Take care of yourself,
