Internet relationships

  • The Net

    Internet relationships happen on the internet and many people meet this way. Some people make really good mates, some find girl/boyfriends and some get married or become partners and have families. Sometimes it’s easier to meet people online who like the same music, movies and things that you do.

    Be wary! People can portray themselves as anyone they want. Don’t be persuaded into giving personal details, photos or contact details to anyone you don’t really know. Remember, behind that hot profile picture may be a cyber troll.

  • Internet Safety

    Meeting people online is in some ways similar to meeting people in real life. Online relationships can be different and a lot more risky. Trust your gut cause things aren’t always what they seem, if something about them doesn’t add up drop all contact.

    When you share things online you may be sharing with other people you don’t know or trust.  Once a message, photo or video has been shared, you won’t be able to control where it goes.
