Abstract: Dating and relationships are common among adolescents as they begin to form the foundations upon which they will build future relationships. Although many adolescents seem to follow a pattern of dating and going steady, these relationships do not necessarily follow along an unproblematic course (McDonald & McKinney, 1994). For example, recent research has indicated a rise in dating violence among teens (Cochran, 1994; Kyle, 1991; Sculli, 1992). Not surprisingly, a survey of adolescents found that dating was ranked as one of several major worries that they face (Kaufman, Brown, Graves, Henderson, & Revolinski, 1993).
