What’s never okay online

When relationships happen online, it can be harder to know what is healthy and what isn’t.

Healthy online relationships require the same key ingredients as healthy offline relationships:

  • Respect

  • Honesty

  • Communication

  • Trust

  • Consent

These are some examples of behaviours that may occur in online relationships that are never okay.

To note - These are just some examples of abusive online relationship behaviours. If there are other things happening in your online relationship that make you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, then it’s important to take note of how you’re feeling and seek support.

We should never excuse abusive behaviour, even if we care about the other person or they say they care about us. Being violent, controlling, possessive, manipulative or angry is not a way of showing care, love and respect both online and offline.

Do you think you might be in an unhealthy online relationship?

If you recognise any of these behaviours happening in your own online relationship, it’s important to know that it’s not your fault, and that lots of support is out there to help you know what to do next. It can help to talk to an adult you trust, or get in touch with a support service here:
