Take it off your chest...

I got raped when I was 18 and I stayed friends with that guy for another year because I always told myself that it wasn't his fault and that he didn't want to but now everytime I want to sleep with a guy something blocks in my head and I'm just not able to do it.

  • I sympathise so much with you. I was raped by my (at the time) boyfriend when I was 16 and felt like I'd owed him sex and it was somehow my fault. I stayed with him like an idiot for a while. It put me off sex entirely and even now, 5 years later, I struggle sometimes. All I can recommend is find someone you feel safe with, make sure they know what happened to you so you can work it through. When you sleep with someone you need to feel safe with them. Maybe get a therapist to help talk it through? Most importantly - which you seem to have already done - is acknowledge the fact that it was rape and it was absolutely not your fault. What he did was not okay. Not every guy will do that, though - you will find someone you can trust and love. It gets better.
