First Person: Relate asks Hull men: Is the big game more important than your other half?
FOOTBALL and rugby fans around the country have something in common – the opportunity to witness a new awareness campaign from Relate, located in the washrooms of the gents toilets.
We are taking our message to a total of 44 sports venues to reach men, particularly younger men, to give them relationship advice and a gentle encouragement to consider our services in a way that does not preach or pry.
We realise relationships are the most personal aspect of our lives and they are also the most important.
Luckily for everyone, there is much we can do to take care of our relation- ships to keep them happy, healthy and strong.
Hull Aero Club is the place for you! For information, for bookings or to buy a flight as a special gift, phone us or see our website at www.hullaeroclub.co.uk

Valid until: Sunday, June 02 2013
When we ask, "Is the big game more important than your other half?", what we're really saying, is, does your partner realise how much you love them?
Have you told them recently?
More importantly have you shown them? There are always things you can do to improve your relationships but if you're not sure how we can give you some pointers.
Relationship advice is not always something we readily seek from friends and family, so why not take five or ten minutes out of your day to look at our microsite www.wheresyour head.org
It could be the best investment you've ever made!
When Relate asked men and women about how they felt about getting expert help for relationships the results were interesting – 53 per cent of men said they thought there was a stigma attached, compared with 44 per cent of women.
Men rated confidentiality and reassurance that the service would help them to solve relationship problems highly.
They also rated impartiality as very important.
Through our campaign we are saying to men and to their partners we understand it may be difficult to pick up the phone to ask for help, but the help you get when you call us is completely confidential and impartial – we have been doing this for 75 years and we are confident that we can help you in some way.
For anyone who spots our adverts on a visit to the boys' room, I hope they make you smile or laugh but most of all, I hope they make you think and remember Relate for when you need us.
