Our results show that homosexual men and women reported higher levels of cyberbullying victimization relative to heterosexual women.
The groups did not differ in cyberbullying offending.
This is particularly an issue for heterosexual men as heterosexual women get approximately six times more contacts than do men.
I conducted one of the first controlled studies to look at self-presentation (how people make a good impression) in online dating and my study revealed different results than described above.
These findings highlight the differential associations between the two facets of pathological narcissism and cyberbullying victimization and offending among homosexual men and women, and lend empirical support to the high risk for cyberbullying victimization of homosexual men with pathological narcissistic vulnerability traits who are actively participating in the online dating sphere.
