20FLIRTING ON LINE: Toward a safe and fulfilling exploration of self and others
Issue 20 | Spring 2012
by Marie-Claude Drouin
My friends really encouraged me to add a guy they met on holidays to my MSN contacts, so I did. He looks really cute in the picture; his hair is dark brown and he’s got great abs. I spoke to him a couple of times and he seems really nice. Mostly, I feel like he understands me and I can trust him. I’ve told him lots of secrets. He’s really way cool! The other day, I added a photo to my profile. I’m in my bathing suit and I’m blowing a kiss. I don’t know if HE’s seen it, but a lot of my friends have noticed it, so much that the next day at school, I was teased because of it. Some people called me “easy” and a few students even laughed at my body... I don’t know what to do anymore. A guy printed the photo and put it up on my locker. I want this to stop. Help!
