Five warning signs of dating violence

Many victims first encounter sexual violence before their 18th birthday.Findings from the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey show that sexual violence is common in both male and female youth, and usually is committed by someone the victim knows.In situations of dating violence, one partner tries to exert power and control over the other partner through physical abuse or sexual assault.

Part of this may be because of the way teenagers see themselves and because of their newness to dating.

This may be done by sending excessive texts or messages, social media stalking, demanding to know account passwords, or dictating who a partner is able to communicate with on social media.

Some abusers may pressure their partner to engage in sexting activity and use the pictures as blackmail to force their partner to do something they would not normally do, something they do not want to do, or as a way to keep their partner from breaking up with them.
