Date Rape – Facts and Signs of Date Rape

Circumstances can bring out the worst in people, even in the men we trust. And at times, these very circumstances lead to a date rape. A date rape may be sensitive to discuss, but these date rape facts are something all girls have to be wary of.

Understanding date rape and date rape facts

It’s fun to go out on a date with a guy, especially if you really like him or have had a small crush on him since forever.

You feel fuzzy and warm when he holds your hand or kisses your neck.

But at times, the guy might just start pushing his luck a bit too far.

It might feel really weird to go on but you don’t want to offend him by stopping him. And even if you do stop him, he might just persist or plead and force himself onto you.

You feel helpless, especially if you’re under the influence of alcohol.

At times, you might feel dizzy and an uneasy sense of physical urge may overpower you, though you hate it.

Unfortunate circumstances like these can create miserable situations where you can get molested sexually, and worse, at times, get raped.

Date rape is a devastating crime for every victim. But it’s also a known fact that most of the times rape is committed by people you know, rather than strangers on the street.

Date rape facts

Date rape is a sexual attack by someone you know, and it is more common than you think. Women are most at risk from new partners, former partners, and men they date occasionally.

Date rape is not an isolated case, but is usually hushed up because you know the person already, and don’t know how to handle it. He may be a friend or a past lover, with whom you came out to spend time and catch up on things.

A date rape story

Sheryl, a student, once had a narrow escape with a date rape. “I had a very good friend of mine, with whom I used to hang out all the time. We used to occasionally go to his farm an hour away from the city, and have a drink or two,” she says.

“One day, when we were at the farm, he asked me to kiss him. I burst out laughing and told him to shut up. He pestered me for a long time, and finally I told him that I would kiss him just once, and we would forget all about it. I gave him a peck on his lips and then backed away. But he just grabbed me and began running his hands all over my body. I felt so violated, but I didn’t know what I could do. I mean this guy was supposed to be someone I trusted a lot. I pushed him, and ran away from there. He called me up later in the evening and apologized saying it was his drink that made him act that way. I slammed the phone down, and never spoke to him after that. The worst part was that I couldn’t mention this incident to anyone else.”

Date rape at parties

Another thing to watch out when you’re at a party is your drink. There are several date rape drugs that can easily be picked up over the counter if you know the pharmacist, and these drugs can render a person unconscious and also induce short term memory loss, which gets worse when mixed with alcohol.

The victim usually would get up feeling very tired and sore, but would have no memory of any physical harassment or rape.

Date rape can be experienced by anyone, at any time. It’s always better to be cautious than sorry. Click here to continue reading about what to do if you get raped on a date.
