Chat With Us

The live chat (IM-style) on loveisrespect.org is one way to contact a peer advocate. You get the same one-on-one, real-time, confidential information from a trained peer advocate as you do if you contact loveisrespect.org by text and phone.

Remember, the chat is:

  • A confidential, one-on-one chat session with a peer advocate.
  • NOT a public chat room.
  • An internal messaging system used specifically for young adults who need to contact a peer advocate -- it is NOT a general chat messenger such as MSN Messenger, AIM, Yahoo Live Chat, Gchat or iChat.
  • Available by clicking on the "Live Chat ON" chevron to the right -- you do NOT have to download anything to use it.

We receive a variety of questions from teens and 20-somethings all over the country. Feel free to chat about anything you would like relating to healthy relationships and dating abuse. You could ask for advice for yourself or for a friend in need. For example, we’re often asked:

  • “So, what should I do?”
  • “Is this abuse?”
  • “Will he ever change?”
  • “How can I get her to stop?”

No relationship question is off limits, too crazy or embarrassing. We are here to help. Chat with a peer advocate right now.
