•	Those who admit to engaging in traditional dating violence also report engaging in electronic forms of dating violence (r=.77)
•	Victims of dating violence (r=.51) and specifically electronic  forms of dating violence (r=.64) are significantly more likely to also  be victims of cyberbullying
•	Youth who are cyberbullied are 3.6 times as likely to experience electronic teen dating violence
