Developmental trends in dating for boys

That's the surprising finding of new research from the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University.Overall, fewer teens are experiencing physical abuse from their dating partners, with five per cent of teens reporting dating violence in 2013, down from six per cent in 2003.However, the researchers found 5.8 per cent of boys and 4.2 per cent of girls said they had experienced dating violence in the past year.

"This has been found in studies of adolescents in other countries as well." She added that the overall decline in dating violence, while small, is encouraging.

All in all, I’m struck by the similarity of desires and concerns between girls and guys. That’s a pretty interesting look at Google trends, don’t you think?
