Romance Jr.: So Teens Know What's Right About Romance
Romance Jr. is designed specifically for those between the ages of 10 and 20 (give or take a few years).
The Romance Junior mission is to provide informative information to teens and tweens regarding their romantic life,
and all that implies for teenagers. RC believes in romance in its purest form, which is to say that romance is
much more than sex and hormones, but an all encompassing experience between two people that involves both your
heart (feelings) and your head( thoughts), wherein the body may be only one of many tools to express those
feelings and thoughts. Sexuality is not the focus of these pages, but as with our pages for adults,
only one of several components that comprise ‘romance’ in true form.
The romance you experience in your teenage years are memories that you will hold your entire life
(just ask any adult when their first kiss was or who their first relationship was with-trust us).
As you read through these pages, define romance for yourself; read our definitions . of romance,
