I am new here. I am an incest survivor, attempted rape, and rape survivor. I am here tonite because I put myself in an unsafe place. I am angry at myself. I was talking to a man on a chat on a personals.
It was after 1:00 AM and he wanted to meet me and I'm saying why don't we meet another day, it's late, etc.. Anyway, he came to my apt- met him outside & he says why don't we watch a movie?
Why did I agree? All he wanted was sex and did not force me but I didn't say no.
It was all about him and it wasn't even good for me.
I just felt horrible & stupid since there is a large part of me that protects myself.
I am lucky that this guy didn't hurt me.
I have done a lot of work on myself and have felt the best in my life. I found Jesus and don;t feel so alone.

Take gentle care.
