Saved by the Bell

Tell us about a time when you managed to extract yourself from a sticky situation at the very last minute.

_____________________________________

Another one of my scary situations. I had a 22 year old boyfriend and I was 16. My parents hated it, but figured if they forbade it I would just be more determined. He was also pushing for sex and I always said NO!

One day he took me to a party. I had a couple of drinks, but he was seriously drunk. He tried to rape me in the car. I kicked and punched and eventually got out of there with the only thing missing was my bra. I grabbed the rest that he did manage to get off.

Found another ride and got home to find my parents waiting at the front door. Let’s just say he became the ex-boyfriend.

      You should worry. I learned the hard way most of my life. I am very naive and I don’t think I will get hurt and look where it has gotten me all of my life. One terrible situation after another. Even as an adult I still get myself in trouble. I got mixed up with a con man. I wrote a 3 part story on that. It is in this blog and the other one under Con Man in search if you want to read it. Just another one of those things that happen to me. People always tell me to write a book. I can’t figure out how to do that with my story, but I can write it up in pieces on here.

    I had a boyfriend who was 4 years older than me while in my teens. We met when I was 14 and started dating when I was 15. We went together until I was 21 and were engaged the last three years. But he was very sweet, didn’t drink except occasionally and didn’t push for sex so I was lucky. We eventually broke up because I had gone to college and didn’t want to get married at that time and he did. I recognize now that I was very lucky to have had such a sweet guy cause it could have been a disaster.:)
