Internet communication is the simplest means of communicating in the contemporary societies which led to widespread usage of Internet as a dating platform. However, Internet communication carries the risk of cyber violence which highly resembles gender based violence in face-to-face situations. The goal of this research was to determine how much gender based cyber violence is happening on online dating sites. The results have shown men tend to carry out online sexual violence towards women. But despite male violence during internet communication, women claim to feel safer online than during face-to-face communication. The reason may be inability of conducting physical violence as the only mitigating circumstance of cyber violence.
