Teen dating violence and sexual assault is estimated to occur between lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth at about the same rate as in straight teen relationships.

(NCAVP, 2001; Dahir, 1999) However, LGBTQ youth are even less likely than heterosexual youth to tell anyone or seek help, and there are fewer resources for these teens.

Research shows that teen girls are not as likely to be as abusive as teen boys.

Teen boys are far more likely to initiate violence and teen girls are more likely to be violent in a case of self-defense.

Rape is most likely to be perpetrated by someone the victim knows, such as a friend, an acquaintance, a date, a family member, or a partner (Silverman, Raj, Mucci, and Hathaway, 2001; Warshaw, 1988; Haplem, Oslak, Young, Martin, and Kupper, 2001).

Dating abuse is a controlling pattern of negative behaviors.

Teen dating violence is as common as domestic violence in adult relationships.

A 2001 study of high school students conducted by Harvard University found that one in five teenage girls had been physically or sexually abused by a dating partner.

Teens experiencing dating violence usually tell no one. One study found that only 6% of girls and 11% of boys told anyone about the abuse that they experienced (O'Keefe and Treister, 1998).

Middle school, high school, and college age women experience a higher rate of rape than any other group.

Teen dating violence can be very dangerous - sometimes lethal.
