    Well, I am normally a person who dresses modestly but my friend invited me to go with her to a party(first party ever) and well...I decided to dress a lil um provocatively and there was this guy I met there and he seemed nice and he asked if I wanted to go somewhere more quiet because the noise was giving me a headache so we went up into this room on the secind floor of the house and thats when it happened...rape...I said no though.I dont know what to do I fel like its my own fault for dressing the way I did and for going into the room with him alone.

    It's common for rape victims to feel it was their fault, that they should've been able to stop it. Well, however you look at it... forcing sex on someone who is telling you 'no' is wrong. It is NOT your fault hun. :hug: He knew what he was doing... I'm really sorry it happened to you. Have you told anyone? Maybe a close friend or relative.

    I'm so very sorry this happened to you! It is absolutely positively not your fault! It's a myth that perpetrators tell women, in order to validate their abuse, that it's the victim's fault because of how she dressed, or what she did, or what she said, or whatever. It is never the victim's fault, no matter what! And it certainly isn't yours! I really suggest you talk to someone, and get some therapy, and perhaps turn this asshole in somewhere, if you can handle doing so. At the very minimum, please get some help from therapy or some support. Again, I am so sorry this has happened to you. You're not alone. :hug:

    Well it certainly is NOT your fault angel. You MUST go see a doctor ASAP.
    Pregnancy should be only one of the issues you must be concerned about - I am sure your GP will advise better.

    It was NOT your fault. You told him no and he still chose to cross the line. You mustn't think that it was your fault.

    I have heard many men say things like "well, look how she's dressed, she must be asking for it". BULLSHIT!

    It's not your fault! Please go to the authorities and report this guy so that he doesn't continue to do it.

    Please contact your psychologist again and tell her it's an emergency and see if you can get an appointment. I'm so sorry this happened to you.
