Dating on the Net

1. Males far outnumber females in teen chat rooms. What are the reasons for this? Also, the articles states how girls have a tendency to adopt a new physical personae and are more outgoing and aggressive on the internet. Do you think that boys also do the same?

2. Do you think it is possible that some (not all) girls have wrongful intentions when it comes to chat rooms and that they could either directly or indirectly be using it for harm? For example, what do you think about the situation described by Elizabeth on pp 165-166 that created a potentially embarrassing situation for the boys who believed they were having cybersex with noone actually on the receiving end? The article states that, "...the boys were objectified as the story became a shared experience of female triumph among the girlfriends."
