Awareness about online Dating & Consent
K.R Mangalam World School, Vaishali organised a workshop to create awareness about online dating & consent.
There are times when abuse can creep in, and dating suddenly turns dark and scary. When this happens, it is filled with jealousy, control, manipulation, humiliation, and intimidation. There are consequences of sharing personal things on online platform. We mostly think that dating abuse, means partner being physically or verbally violent. But in the age of the Internet, technology is quickly becoming the weapon of choice for some abusive partners.
There are red flags which help us to understand that online dating is going in good direction or not.
Consent can’t be defined by a simple yes or no. There are situations where you might say yes just for the sake of pleasing your partner but that shouldn’t be. Power imbalance is the root of an unhealthy relationship. Don’t do anything that you do not want to for anybody’s sake. Put yourself and your comfort above anyone else’s wants.
