Your phone and social networks are all digital extensions of who you are. When someone you're with pressures or disrespects you in those places, that's not cool.

Pic pressure? Yikes! What can you say if someone asks you for a revealing pic? What if it's someone you really like and trust? Post your suggestions! 

"My boyfriend likes it when I send private pics of myself to him over Snapchat. I’ve never sent a nude one, but he always tells me how much he likes the pics where I try to look sexy. When I told my friend about this, she totally flipped out saying that he could screen capture my photos and show them to other people. I don’t think he would ever do this but my friend’s reaction made me start to worry that he might or that I could get into trouble. Should I stop?"

Happy Talk it Out Tuesday everyone! Check out today's question...have you ever dealt with bullying or harassment via text? What did you do about it?

"I recently broke up with my boyfriend because he kept pressuring me to go all the way when I didn’t want to. Now he keeps sending me texts calling me “fat” and “ugly” and other terrible things. His texts are really upsetting me but I am afraid to text him back because I think it might make the situation worse. Maybe if I ignore him he will stop texting me?"

It's Talk it Out Tuesday...time to talk about some Privacy Problems! Has this ever happened to you? 

"My girlfriend and I have been dating for 6 months, and she told me the other day that if I really loved her I’d let her have my Facebook password. It’s not that I think it’s a big deal to give it to her, but I just don’t see the point of her having it. Is she asking for it because she doesn’t trust me?"

That’s Not Cool Tip: Everyone has the right to decide for themselves what is okay, or not okay, in their relationships. No matter how long you and your girlfriend have been dating or how you feel about each other, you have the right to have your space respected online and in person. Just because you want to keep your password private does not mean you don’t care about your girlfriend or are not trustworthy. We encourage you to make decisions that keep you happy, safe, and comfortable and to communicate your feelings with your girlfriend. When you tell someone “No,” they should respect that. If you continue feeling controlled or pressured by your girlfriend, talk to someone you trust like a friend, parent, teacher, or school counselor. You can also check out our Callout Cards for more ideas on how to tell someone “No” or to ask for space.

When does affection become suffocating? What about when it's someone you really like? Where do you draw your line? 

"My girlfriend is ALWAYS texting me. She won't leave me alone for more than two minutes. She's always asking me what I'm doing, who I'm talking to, what I'm talking to them about, and demands to know everything I do. Then, when we hang out together, she's sweet and kind. She holds my hand and tells me she loves me. I love her too, but I feel like she’s suffocating me. What can I do?"
