3. Instruction or Delivery
Teenage Relationships
Your relationship during this stage is pretty much different from what you had when you were still a child, when you focused on play activities and
had few close friends. During your teenage years, you form friendships and start to develop intimate relationships with members of the opposite sex.
Intimate or close relationships are characterized by self-disclosure and your capacity to trust others.
Friendship
Friendship is a form of relationship between two or more people. It means being with others and not just thinking about yourself.
Types of Friendship
1. Acquaintances – which are a type of friendship whom you join only once in a while or occasionally such as fellow members of a choir or school
organizations.
2. Companions – which are a type of friendship where you share same interests through regular interactions such as team mates in a basketball team.
3. Intimates or best friends – which are a type of friendship where you give and receive opinions and support. You find ways to regularly communicate
with your best friend through text messages, telephone calls, or social media.
4. Clique – is usually composed of smaller members (four to six members) and is exclusive to peers who share the same interests. Members of a
clique may have the same interests in clothes and hobbies such as watching movies, playing basketball, and swimming.
5. Crowd – On the other hand, a larger peer group, composed of 10-20 members.
Real friends are hard to find. They encourage you to do your best, provide support, and help you live your life to the fullest.

Ways on How Attraction to Someone is Expressed


When you talk about your crush with your friends, you sometimes feel very much excited. All these feelings of excitement about a crush are
normally experienced at your age. Being attracted to someone is different from attraction, although loving another person begins with liking or being
attracted. People engaged in romantic relationships experience a special type of feeling called love.

Expressions of Love and Commitment


Love is a choice. You express your love for another person not because you are forced to do so, but because you have decided to share
yourself with another person. Thus, when the relationship fails and you felt rejected or hurt, you put the blame not just on your partner but on your
shortcomings in the relationship as well.
Love also involves trust and commitment. You should have confidence such that even if you do not see each other, your partner remains
faithful to you. As a form of commitment, love entails being loyal to your partner; you are there to support and care for him or her during good and bad
times.
Love is a process of helping each other grow and develop to the best that they can be in the relationship.
