As the present society, the loving relationships among teenagers are in a constant change. With so many changes, they become insecure at the moment of choose an affective relationship. Thirty-eight teenagers, male and female, of city of Aracaju, State of Sergipe (Brazil), were investigated, and the objective was to verify what kind of relation most attracts these young people nowadays and the reasons why they choose it. The outcomes have showed that teenagers would rather keep a quick and non-steady relationship so they can go dating later. Thus this non-steady relationship is the beginning for the date. The look has also a great value among the youth and this could be an interesting subject for further researches.
