How to end dating violence
Date rape drugs are often slipped into people’s drinks, so be careful when consuming alcohol, especially in public places.
Don’t accept an open drink from someone you don’t know, and control the amount of alcohol you consume.
You may be hesitant to do so if you’re not prepared with a cell phone or spare change and money to call a cab.
Violence against women has been happening for a long time, but we can work together to prevent it in the future.
Dating violence is emotional, physical or mental abuse within the bounds of a romantic or potential relationship, according to the National Center for Victims of Crime.
Sometimes, good relationships turn sour, but no one deserves to be in a relationship where they are the victim of violence.
To avoid these kinds of situations, avoid pairing off with just one person on a first date.
Double or group date with people you know in order to avoid being alone with someone you don’t know.
