If you are going to participate in online dating, it is important to learn to do it safely.
With the horror stories on the news these days it’s advisable to always note that even if you believe you won’t be targeted online, it CAN happen. Don’t presume that it WON’T happen to you.
When speaking to your youth beneficiaries about online dating, remind them that it is very easy to download an image off of a social media profile and create a fake account with a made-up name, age and identity. Teach your beneficiaries that they must not presume the person they are speaking to is real and is who they say they are as this can put their lives in immediate danger!
