Dating someone your family doesn’t like can be really hard.
It may cause conflict that makes you feel like you can’t be honest or even near the people you love.
At loveisrespect, we get all kinds of questions about dating. If you have questions of your own or need more information, you can always chat with a trained peer advocate!
“Dating” means different things to different people, particularly across generations.
Consider why your family doesn’t like your partner or why your partner doesn’t like them.
Remember that feeling isolated and no one else liking your partner can be warning signs of an unhealthy or abusive relationship.
Even if you are “hooking up,” your partner should not be disrespectful or controlling.
