Spreading the Word About Healthy Relationships
We were so excited to share our new, media and health-relationship focused curriculum at the all-expenses paid Start Talking Institutes. They took place in Chicago on November 2-3, 2013 and Dallas on November 16-17, 2013. Thanks to Health Care Service Corporation and its Blue Shield and Blue Cross Plans of Illinois, Oklahoma, New Mexixo and Texas and all of our wonderful attendees for committing themselves to making a difference!

Jealousy in relationships is one of the most common issues we hear about at loveisrespect. Whether you’ve just started to date someone or have been going strong for a long time, jealousy is a feeling that comes up in most relationships.
What determines if your relationship behaviors are healthy, unhealthy, or abusive is how you deal with your jealous feelings. Since there are so many different ways to go about confronting your own jealousy, we want to break down some of the myths and help you learn to always handle jealousy in a healthy way.
