Unsafe - August 26th 2009, 01:04 AM

First of all, I'm not sure where this goes really. Feel free to move it.

Alright. I live in a great neighborhood. People are friendly and normally I feel so safe. They wave, say hi. I live close to a few dollar stores and such. I walk up there all the time. The people say hi. Ask me how my day was and stuff like that.

Not even half an hour ago, I was walking to one of these stores when a guy in a car slows down and asks me where Theodore Street was. I turned around and pointed to it. When I turned back around, his pants were down and he was playing with his dick as he says,"Wanna ride?" I hurriedly said no and went into the store when I then called my mom and asked her to pick me up. She didn't ask why. Me and my parents have a no ask policy. When I feel uncomfortable, I can call them for a ride and they don't ask why. I told her that some guy asked me for a ride and I felt unsafe.

It's not like he raped me or anything, but I have a feeling that now I'm gonna be afraid to walk around my neighborhood. Even just to go to the store to get gum or something. I may sound dumb for something like this but how do I get over this fear. I really want to be able to take walks in my neighborhood because I do it everyday.

Please help?

Love, SpiderHan03

I'm sorry to hear that happened to you, it doesn't sound very nice especially when you said your in a nice neighbour, there is always one who seems to ruin things. Do you remember what the guy looked like? If you are really worried you could report it to the police and they could do something about it which could make you feel a bit safer to know that they are on the look out. I wouldn't let it get to you too much though because as you said it's a nice neighbour and it could be just a few bad people within and you just happened to have a run in with one of them. Don't let it stop you going out, if you do just be careful and keep an eye out, stay in areas where more people are or where you know you can get to safety just to be on the safe side. I'm here if you want to talk also x

I would start by going out with people. Going for walks with friends in your neighbourhood will help you to see there is nothing to be scared of and hopefully eventually youll get back to being able to walk around alone.

Living in a nice neighboorhood, i could see how something like that could get to you. Some sickos out there have nothing better to do than to go around harassing people like that. Take your time in getting over it. as said previously, take a couple walks with your mom or dad, maybe some friends and youll be alright. Chances are, if its a nice neighboorhood, it doesnt happen often and that guy was probably on some kind of drug, and it won't be long before he tries it with the wrong kid who happens to hand his liscence plate number over to the cops.

Be Strong and Good Luck
