Unhappy I think I was raped - September 27th 2009, 11:48 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of rape or abuse, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I'm a 16 year old guy, and my ex boyfriend came to town a few months ago and said he wanted to hang out with me. I missed him, so I agreed, and my parents said he could spend the night. He's 20.

Right before I went to sleep, I said I was thirsty, and he said, "You can drink some of my water," and gave me his water bottle. After I started drinking, he said, "Just finish the whole thing if you want," so I did.

That's the last thing I remember, except I remember waking up in the middle of the night for the shortest moment, and I have a vivid image stuck in my head of him on my penis, but I think I went back to sleep almost instantly.

It's been bothering me for months, and that one image keeps replaying in my head. He hasn't spoken to me since he left town the next day, and I don't know if I should report it or just try to forget about it.

I think he used GHB in the water because it's odorless and clear.

If you think thats what happened,then i think defintely you should tell someone about it.


Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Under UK law anyway that's not rape it's sexual assualt. However that doesn't make it any less serious. I think that before you report this you should get it clear in your mind whether he actually did this, remember there is a massive stigma around rape/sexuall assualt and you should be very careful before accusing anyone of it especially if you're not 100% sure it happened yourself.

If you're planning on bringing criminal charges then I'm not sure how successful you would be months after the event but maybe simply accusing them and getting it out in the open would give you a type of closure. It all depends on what you want to get out of this really.

I agree with Lil aswell. If you think that is what happened, it would be really important that you tell someone about it.
Please do if it's worrying you so badly.

Hi there,

It is so great that you decided to reach out for help here. You are so very brave and strong for admitting what you believe happened; I know this must have been very hard on you. So, good job. <3

If this is still bothering you, it is extremely important that you talk to someone about how you are feeling. Don't let this consume you; get it out. Talk about it with someone you trust; a family member, a close friend, a teacher, a religious leader. Anyone who you feel comfortable with is an option. Try to remember that this is not your fault, therefor no one should judge you for it. If they do, perhaps they do not deserve your trust.

If you do decide to take this to the police, it is important that you try and get a vivid idea of every detail of that night. Sexual assault is extremely hard to prove, especially when date rape drugs are involved. However, I do think that it may be helpful to seek some sort of help, even if it does not involve legal action.

I really hope you can get this all straightened out. This must be so difficult for you, and I'm so sorry that you have had to suffer like this. If you'd ever like to talk, about anything, I'm here.

Take care.

in a long time,
I can say that I wanna try.
I feel helpless for the most part,
but I'm learning to open my eyes.
And the sad truth of the matter is,
I'll never get over it,
but I'm gonna try
to get better and overcome each moment
in my own way"
