First of all hi, I always felt the need to share my story. when i was 17 i was dating this really nice guy (at least i thought he was nice at the time.) A few months before my 18th birthday we were in my car having a nice conversation and then everything went wrong he pulled down my pants and raped me. im not going to go into to much detail because i have blocked most of it out. i just remember that it happened twice now it is almost 6 months later and i cannot be alone in a room with just men, even though i know that these men wont hurt me. anyone can get raped it doesn’t matter who you are. i didn’t think it was going to happen to me but it did.
