Con: For every 100 or so of these, only about 1 is ever reports that there has been a sharp increase in cases of rape linking to dating apps, and it's obviously very worrying.
According to statistics from the National Crime Agency (NCA), there were 184 allegations of rape following a first-meeting with someone from a dating app in 2014; the amount reported in 2009, which was 33.
Whatever the reason, the bottom line is that the statistics are heading in the wrong direction.This includes any behaviors that intimidate, manipulate, humiliate, isolate, frighten, terrorize, coerce, threaten, blame, hurt, injure, or wound someone. The media’s portrayal of stalking can be very different from reality.Relationship abuse can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, religion, or gender. Over 85% of stalking victims are stalked by someone they know.And this doesn't include rapes which will have gone unreported, which we all know is a very common thing when it comes to sexual assault.It must be acknowledged that obviously the soaring popularity of these dating apps in the past few years will have had a direct correlation with the increase of such statistics, but that doesn't really serve as any kind of excuse.
