If you can't be who you truly are with your significant other, it's time to think hard about what you are doing in a situation like this..why. While it's true that our partners aren't responsible for our happiness, they should certainly make our days a little brighter!
Someone who is dating the right person consistently enjoys the relationship and feels a general sense of happiness (arguments aside! If you find yourself unhappy most of the time -- and especially when you are with them -- then this may be a sign that this isn't the best person for you.

Notice what "dating" seems to mean to your child and then talk about it.
