Create strategies and possible dialogue (min. 1 per topic) for communicating in the following situations:
Saying no to sexual involvement
Discussing whether or not to become sexually active
Talking with a partner about using protection
Discussing with a friend or parent your concerns about an STD
Informing a partner about your STD diagnosis
**Answer these questions - How might these strategies or dialogues be different depending on the person with whom you are communicating? (e.g., platonic friend, romantic partner, health care professional, parent)**
Help. It's the last part I don't get. I don't know how I would answer that question. I've been mulling over this for an hour. Can someone either explain how I would answer this question or tell me how to start it or maybe give an example.
Thank you very much. Your help is appreciated.

If the person with whom you are speaking is a friend, one of your peer groups or younger, you would be using very informal speech. If this person were older, a parent, neighbor, etc. the tone would be much more formal.
Does that help?

If you've been diagnosed with an STD, you have a moral (and maybe legal?) obligation to tell your sexual partner. The best way to do it is to be open and honest.
