Of those who have met a partner online, the majority met on social media sites, and the bulk of them met on Facebook.
While most teen romantic relationships do not start online, technology is a major vehicle for flirting and expressing interest in a potential partner.
One-quarter (24%) of teen “daters” or roughly 8% of all teens have dated or hooked up with someone they first met online.And though I am happy to share what we do as a family and why, I am well-aware that plenty of readers will take a different approach than we have. So I won’t be writing this in a “Do this” and “Don’t do that” format. If he plans on being physically involved with a girl, is your son clear on all of the things related to sexual involvement?Instead, I will do two things: First, I will share some of the dating-related issues that I suggest you discuss before your son starts dating. STD’s, pregnancy, and the long-term effects of being intimate with another person.And this is where my series will shift from being straight forward to a little…sticky. Does he understand the effect that drugs and alcohol can have on him and how he would behave around the opposite sex if he is under the influence?You see, today’s post enters the zone of personal morals and family convictions. (This topic of course will be covered in a future post, but as far as it affects dating I wanted to include it here.) 6.
