If you are a teen, dating can be more important than any other aspect of life. You never tire of discussing it, reading about it, agonizing over it. "The Comlete Idiot's Guide to Dating for Teens" gives help to the dating teenager. It explains how to ask for a date, and how to accept or reject one graciously. If you are already dating, it discusses how to keep a relationship going or how to end it, how to know if going steady is right for you, and how to deal with your date's family and friends.

You pick up the phone. Your heart begins to pound and your palms to sweat. You put the phone down. Deep breath. You pick up the phone again, and dial that number. Breathe, breathe, gasp...
Sure, dating can be fun. But it can also be nerve-racking, especially that first call, first kiss, or first breakup! No need to feel like a complete idiot, though. With this valuable guide to dating, from the popular Complete Idiot's Guide series, teens will learn everything from conversation skills to dealing with rejection to making decisions about sex. Author Susan Rabens's upbeat yet sensitive tone makes these sometimes confusing topics a lot more approachable. Four sections ("The Playing Field," "The Dating Game," "Training for the Dating Game: Your Behavior Is You," and "Advanced Plays: Love and Sex") are divided into chapters, which in turn are broken down into subchapters. Sidebars with sporty titles (Time Out, Penalty Flag, Record Book, and Instant Replay) provide extra information, anecdotes, statistics, tips, and cautions for the teen dater. Readers can either browse or read the book from cover to cover. The emphasis is on confidence and having a sense of humor, but the guide is thorough in its coverage of anything and everything related to teens and dating, including some more serious issues--pregnancy, STDs, and birth control. Readers will be reassured by the embarrassing and the empowering real-life stories scattered throughout, and by Rabens's mantra: "Dating is relating, and relating is fun."
