Online dating dangers nzx

Internet predators are adults who post as teenagers on the Internet and gain the trust of teens they have contact with.

According to the Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in three teens will experience some form of physical dating violence in their lives.

This violence could include anything from shoving to hitting to more serious violence, such as strangulation and murder.

This violence is likely to be a secret, since neither the victim or the abuser want to admit there is a problem.

Strong indicators of physical violence in teen relationships are jealousy, possessiveness and angry behavior from the teen's partner.
