Children who are bullied tend to have more psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations or delusions when they reach their teenage years. The risk is greater if the bullying is Chronic or severe (6 ).

Research has shown victims of bullying in middle and high school can impact a child's sexual behavior a graduate student in biological sciences at Binghamton University in New York said "Females who were victimized during middle and high school had sex at earlier ages than their peers and had more sexual partners, while males that were routinely victimized through high school showed just the opposite," and also said "They had reduced sexual activity--that is, they had sex at later ages than their peers and they had fewer sexual partners." (7 ).

Bullies also have problems with future relationships. People who had bullied are reported to be less emotionally supportive and less equitable. They also have shown more acts physical and social aggression toward their dating partners. Students who were involved bulling were less likely to show high levels of school adjustment or bonding(8 ).
