    You always hear statistics saying that most people sexualy abused are abused by someone they knew... just wondering if that reflected true... :unsure:

    i cant answer, as my answer is yes AND no.
    2 i knew, one was my farther, one was a partners "best friend".
    1 i didnt, but i knew something was going to happen. didnt change anything. saw him the first day we were in greece, and i just knew there was something wrong with him. then me and my mum went out one night, my only night out there in the whole 3weeks we were staying in teh area, and he "found" us and wanted to bring us for a drink.. he was then offered a bad in our house for the night.
    rest is history.

    so yes i did and no i didnt.

    Yes :(

    It would have been easier if it was a complete stranger, at least I wouldn't have to see him everytime I went outside.

    Yes i sort of knew my rapist he lived in my area and i actually kind of liked him and he used that to his advantage for years i blamed myself and from time to time i still do.
    I was almost raped by knife point once when i was to trusting of a person i didnt know.I won write what happen as i dont want to trigger anyone but lets just say he got to do somethings that stuck with me.I did not know him at all.

    Another guy who molested me i knew his friend from junior high although i never really spoke to him just saw him around.However the one who did the molesting i did not know

    I didn't know mine, but the fear wasn't any less as a result. I became even more reclusive after that, scared of everyone.

    Not really, he lived in my hometown, but I didn't know him until he talked to me.

    Yes, I know the person who abused me. He was a friend of my mothers. I suspect another person of abusing me when I was even younger but it seems I have blocked out most of my childhood memories so I cant say for sure about that person but if so, yes I knew him as well (he lived with us for a while).
