I said no... - April 26th 2010, 03:57 AM

I have been assualted, hate the R word, like 5 years ago. I am married now too. I was with a friend of mine the other day and he was tickling me and was a little inappropriate. I said no quite a bit and even pulled away from him. I like the attention honestly, but knew it was wrong. Later the guy apologized and made the comment, you said no a lot, I should have stopped. I justified it as being ok though and I am really struggling with this. Why did I do that? I cannot even explain this.

It was unwanted physical contact, you had every right to do what you did. You've had experience with people who completely disregarded your personal boundaries and you're more responsive to people not respecting them now. What you did was completely understandable and, in my eyes, very awesome. You laid down your boundaries when you felt it was inappropriate and stuck to your feelings. Way to go.

It's perfectly okay that you said no. As Bethany said, it was unwanted contact, and you had every right to tell him to stop.Next time, try saying 'stop', I've learned that stop works better when guys are just messing around than no does. But I am so proud of you for standing up for yourself.
