This campaign consists primarily of "social media" and electronic distribution of the components.The intent of the campaign is to get teens thinking that some of the behaviors they may be experiencing or inflicting (possessiveness, jealousy) are not signs of love.There’s so much drama involved – don’t act like you don’t know what we’re talking about here.Arguments, jealousy, accusations, insecurity, the thrill and excitement. What looks like love might just be abusive (excessive jealousy/ possessiveness /over-attentiveness).And you might end up giving up things about yourself that you wish, later, you hadn’t.We ALL love to be loved – Just make sure that’s actually what you’re getting.There is a common misconception that aggression is stable over time.

The research has mainly focused on Caucasian youth, and there are yet no studies which focus specifically on IPV in adolescent same-sex romantic relationships.
Intimate partner violence (IPV) in adolescents is an important realm of study as, in addition to the usual negative effects of abuse, this violence occurs at a critical period in the social and mental development of a person.
