OMG!! A Guy Tried To Pick ME Up Today!! - August 17th 2010, 06:38 AM

I was walking to a meeting that I have every Monday with my youth empowering group. On the way, I saw a guy in a siler car do some head nod acknowledgement thing so I thought that he wanted me to do it back so, I did. Then he decided to turn around and try to call me over. So, I said "Yeah?" And he said some language I didn't understand and gestured for me to get in his car. So, I said "I have somewhere to be right now sorry." He said "Ok" looking disapointed and left after a little while. But the whole time I was walking (I haden't gotten where I had to be yet) I was thinking 'what would have happened if I went with him?'


Everthing I see seems to be a lie. And everything you see in me you think is the truth. But, really all you see is what I'm masking the real me with. You never see me cry. Because I'll never let you. And you'll never see me die because I feel like I already have in a way.

good job glad u dealt with it maturely and made a smart decision


The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.
It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.
How much you can take, and keep moving forward.
PM me if you need to talk about ANYTHING.

Hey Alisha,
I think it was a really good idea not to get into the car with him. Who knows where he would have taken you or what would have happened.
We're all proud of you (:


When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.

this happened to me too and it was pretty scary. if they had gotten out of the car i wouldnt have been able to go anywhere and it really tought me a lesson. good for you that you were able to think on your feet and keep yourself away from trouble

How is the neighborhood?

Are there a lot of prostitutes around that area? He could have assumed since you are a female walking in that area, you are a prostitute and by head nodding back it was sort of a confirmation type thing and he gestured you back into the car.

Good thing of you to not follow the man into the vehicle! That was smart of you to do.

Kick him in the nuts next time. Actually, avoiding him was a good idea too.
