Dating does not occur in a vacuum; as a result, you and your date can feel pressure from all sides. If you are feeling pressure in your dating relationship, it's important to analyze where the pressure is coming from. If it's coming from the person you're dating, this could be a red flag (something you should watch carefully. Pressure to date from family or friends is another source and should be carefully managed. Dating should be enjoyable, not something that you feel pressured to do. If you are feeling pressure, look at where it is coming from and then decide what you want to do, not what others want for you.
