Everyone knows that dipping your toe in the dating pond can be a little intimidating without first seeking some expert advice! And that's exactly what Terri Couwenhoven delivers in this book written expressly for teens and adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities. "Boyfriends & Girlfriends" explains the dos and don'ts of dating and validates their normal, age-appropriate desire for companionship and romance. The book covers the biggest questions and smallest concerns of every would-be dater, including: Who is an appropriate dating partner and who is not. How to read signals and judge whether the interest is mutual. How to ask someone out on a date. How to turn down a date. How to handle rejection. What sexual feelings are. How to work through problems in a relationship. What to do when a relationship is not working. Written and illustrated for a hi/lo reader, this book is perfect for anyone who is already in a relationship, ready to start one, or still only dreaming about it. The guide is also an informative read for parents, counsellors, and other support providers.
