Online dating, also called internet dating, means to find a boyfriend, girlfriend or sex partner on the internet. There are several websites where people upload information about themselves, and read information about others. Some chat with each other on the net, and others arrange to meet by email. However, on websites like these there is always the risk that people pretend to be someone they are not. A lot of children and youths have been sexually abused when they met adults who pretended to be the victim’s age.
