Perverts - August 27th 2009, 07:21 PM

I think this is the correct forum, here goes...

Basically, I seem to attract perverts. I know most girls will have some experience of perviness at some point in their lives, but it happens to me almost every day. Sometimes it's just me being followed which I can deal with because I can run away when I turn corners. Other times guys (particularly older men) come up to me and act pervy e.g. ask weird questions, try to find out personal information, even attempt to flirt in some cases. I just try to act normally and make some excuse or other to get away. It's not like I lead them on or anything. I don't wear any makeup and I never wear revealing clothing (as you can tell by my picture I don't look particularly sexy or inviting). I haven't been attacked or anything but I am beginning to think that I might. I like to go for walks by myself so I suppose I am in that sense vulnerable, but I never go anywhere dodgey. Can anyone give me some advice on what to do in these situations and how I can avoid them?

Hey I'm having a sort of similar situation myself which I posted in the bullying section. I think it is maybe because you're on your own a lot - I live in london and I definitely get perved on a lot more on my own! I guess it just makes you look more vulnerable. Maybe dress up a tiny bit (not like heels or anything, but maybe a little make-up) so you look like you're on your way to something? Have an air of someone who's in a rush or is going somewhere - it will make you look much less vulnerable and it will make you less approachable. Also an oldie but a goodie, stick to busier places or next to roads hope I helped x

Thanks for the help guys. My problem is that I go on walks to relax and get away from it all, so walking in groups or pretending to be in a hurry isn't really something that I want to do.

Yeah, I attracted a lot of attention from cruising gays when I was in high school, so I can begin to understand. I must been awfully cute. I would have given anything to be left alone. It's a major creep out.

You say you walk think and be alone. That may be part of the problem, you look like you're not going anywhere. I have to say it, because it shouldn't be so, but don't wear clothing that reveals your figure and walk like you're going somewhere, don't just amble along. See if you can find a large T-shirt that says, "I don't want to talk to you". I saw one of those in a shop recently.


What just happened?
