Prom Night

This happened fourteen years ago but I am just now realizing that I was raped. I can look back and see how it affected me but at the time I thought it was my fault. Back in high school I had a large group of friends that was composed of guys and girls, we hung out at a house down the street from the school. The guy who lived there was always alone, his mom had moved out and his dad worked all the time. We hung out there after school and started having parties there after functions at our high school and then it became every weekend. We drank and hung out. I had a boyfriend in high school, I lost my virginity to him but a few weeks before prom I found out he was cheating on me and I broke up with him and went to senior prom with the friend whose… Continue reading »

My Girlfriend of Two Years

‘m still not sure if this was rape but everyone – including my therapist – is naming it as such. I’ve also never told this story in detail and I know that this may make some people uncomfortable… But, here goes: We started dating when I was 13. A few days after we began dating, I turned 14. The first “happening” was 8 months after we began dating. I had never been sexual with anyone before, I was a virgin. She told me everything was going to be okay – and she took me into the (public) bathroom by the park in our town. She began touching me and I wasn’t sure what to do. I remember saying “okay,” and nodding to whatever she said. This happened multiple times. Some occurrences would even include a belt tying my wrists together or her choking me while touching me. She stopped touching me in February, a couple… Continue reading »

My Best Friend’s Boyfriend

My junior year of high school I had class with this guy I had never seen around school before. It turns out he transferred from another school and as time passed he began dating one of my best friends. I had a crush on him but I obviously didn’t purse it. We became friends and talked a lot in class. Eventually him and my friend broke up. And one day he text me asking if I wanted to hang out. I agreed and he came over to my house to watch a movie. He ended up pulling out a bottle of vodka. And of course I wanted him to think I was cool enough to hang out with so I was taking shots with him. We began kissing and making out. But then he started trying to take off my pants. I remember telling him no. But he kept going. He pulled his pants off… Continue reading »

Police Officer/Date Rape

I was wondering what is the point of living anymore? Where to go and what to do when the police, lawyers, and judges are protecting a rapist because his daddy knows them all? They tell you to move on, talk to somebody, blah blah blah like I have not done it all. I was raped by a police officer, a useless and ignorant drunk who barely knows how to drive or how to read. I was stupid and I did not do anything right away I thought I could get him to confess or apologize or something, but instead he tells me to go a head and report him, he will not be touched. He was absolutely right. I was charged and prosecuted for not being able to hold myself together, and because he told them that I was threatening him and of course they believed him and did not even ask or care about… Continue reading »

Well to make matters worst I hated my food and didn’t even eat. Then the place had to close within 20 mins of arrival and we didn’t want to keep them waiting. So we left early. The whole time I was texting my quote on quote best guy friend. Letting him know how bummed I was my dad didn’t make the reservations like he was supposed to at the restaurant we went to for my 8th graduation for my high school one kind of wanted to relive that… Continue reading »

From Heaven to Hell

This all started when I was in the 8th grade, I met my now ex boyfriend Matt C. who I dated for about four years leading up to my junior year in high school. I’ve know Matt since we were very little, we went to the same elementary so I had previously know him. Our relationship together started out pretty well and within a couple months the physical, emotional and mental abuse started, it was a daily thing for me to end up with bruises and scars on my legs and arms from how often he would lay hands on me. Overtime the abuse got even worse, if he was having a bad day and I made him mad he would punch me in the face so at this point having black eyes and bruises on my face was a normal thing. During these periods of time my best friend was my foundation (makeup). I… Continue reading »

My Story

I met him while attending lessons at a school. He lived directly opposite. I was 15 and he was 22. The first time I saw him, I couldn’t stop staring! He was gorgeous. We spoke briefly for 1 year and a half. One day he invited me over to watch a ‘movie’. I was now 16. I went, not thinking about anything else but a movie. I was lying on his bed watching the television while he kept staring at my face. I felt really uncomfortable so I asked him to stop. He said my face was way better to look at rather than the movie. The next thing I knew, he was on top of me kissing me deeply. I kept trying to push him off. I was so scared. When I finally did get him to come off, he kept apologizing. I felt bad so I told him it was okay. I told… Continue reading »
