The current longitudinal study examined aggressive media involvement as risk factors for dating aggression focusing both on extensive use across multiple media types and persistent use over three waves of data. At three times points, measured one year apart, 484 Canadian adolescents (238 boys, 246 girls; mean age of 15.06 years at Time 1) with romantic partners completed measures of extensive and persistent media use, dating attitudes, and dating aggression. Two models were tested, a cumulative risk model and a mediational model. The results provided support for the cumulative effects of extensive aggressive media involvement and partial support for persistent usage, especially at high levels of extensiveness. The results also identified aggression-tolerant attitudes as an important mediator linking the longitudinal pathway between aggressive media use and dating aggression. Overall, our findings highlight the role that media aggression plays in shaping young people's attitudes and behaviour in their dating relationships
