New And Confused


Recommended Posts

my names amanda, i just joined and im unsure if i should be here or not. i wont go into any detail of my experience, but what happened to me was date/acquaintance rape (from my understanding). so i wondered if theres anyone out there who had sex or a relationship with their rapist and if they'd share their experience or speak with me.

Hi Amanda,

This isn't usual, you should be able to post everywhere now. It's not you, honestly!!! It must be a glitch in the system. I will get a moderator in touch with you to fix it.

Welcome to AS!!!

Hi,

Ya, it was an ex-bf who I hadn't seen or been with in years (known him for 20!) who decided to ask me over for coffee and a lstening ear ONLY, who then drugged and then raped me 2 weeks ago....so, I guess that is a known-person assault type of thing... And I hear you on confusion. I am also new here and trying to find my way around....find ANYONE who may know how I am feeling/not feeling/or whatever this all is!!! I want to know when the shaking will stop....

;-)

From what I have read seems like a very nice group of people here though. :-) And so I am grateful for that.

I am trying to get used to being a "survivor" and not a "victim" or "idiot who put myself in a really bad situation".... not quite there yet...
