Navigating the dating world is full of ups and downs. While dating, many people face a variety of issues including, confusion about the opposite sex, questions about how to have a healthy relationship, pain from cheating, broken-hearts, rushing into sex and the questions go on and on.

Dating is a stage of romantic relationships whereby two people meet socially with the aim of each assessing the other’s suitability as a prospective partner. It is a very important step in any person’s life as they eventually move toward marriage.

At TheHopeLine we think it is important to talk about dating because it is something that most every person thinks about and experiences at some point in their life. Dating done right is fun, respectful, and can lead to a beautiful future. However, every time we open ourselves up to love we also open ourselves up to heart ache. TheHopeLine is a safe place for you to examine dating relationships, heal broken-hearts and work toward healthy relationships. After 25 years of talking with young adults we’ve heard it all, never judged, and provided hope.
