September, 2004

Meeting someone you've met on the net has significant risks.  Even when you think they love you, you may find you have regrets, because what it's really been about for them is sex, not love. Others have been more abruptly raped just by meeting someone in a public place.  Some have been drugged and end up in a porn film.  Boys have been lured by the pretense of meeting a girl, only to find themselves raped by a group of men.

If you don't think it can happen to you, you need to listen to the stories of other teens who felt and thought like you.  Katie Tarbox writes about her experience in Katie.com.
