Our analysis of longitudinal data from the Toledo Adolescent Relationships Study showed that the number of adolescent dating and sexual partners does not uniformly influence indicators of young adult well-being, which is at odds with a risk framework. Relationship churning and sexual nonexclusivity during adolescence were associated with lower relationship quality during young adulthood.
Sexual nonexclusivity during adolescence influenced self-reports of depressive symptoms and lower self-esteem among young adults. Future research should develop more nuanced conceptualizations of adolescent dating and sexual relationships and integrate adolescent dating and sexual experiences into research on early adult well-being. As such, researchers coming from different scholarly traditions tend to focus on either adolescent dating or involvement in sexual activity, but often do not consider the convergence, or lack thereof, in these concepts.
Building on prior research, we move beyond these dichotomies by empirically exploring those dating and sexual relationships that overlap and those that do not.

5 Things Everyone Needs to Know About Sex and Dating, According to a Relationships Therapist
At one time or another, we’ve all been involved in a purely sexual relationship. Whether it’s a friends-with-benefits-style connection or a random, onetime hookup with no strings attached , there are all sorts of ways we enjoy strictly physical connections with other people. But is it actually possible for these fleeting run-ins—ones based solely on the foundation of casual sex and little else—to turn into more serious connections worthy of marathon phone sessions, bae status, and gasp eventual declarations of love?
