This Facebook post is real life. I do research on sexual assault and violence and have interviewed many victims. It happens way more than any one person knows.
The scariest part is that it IS best friends, best friend’s siblings, long term dating situations, childhood friends… anyone. The illusion that only strangers or people you met at a party or on the internet are the only danger is just that, an illusion.
All I can say is trust your gut, listen to your instincts, and don’t be alone with someone if you get even the slightest creepy vibe. And of course, hats off to these awesome ladies who did something!
