I agree completely. Even my parents don’t believe me. I’m very shocked and angry but the important thing is is that I’m fine.
I’m so sorry…. That’s terrible. It really sucks when no one cares, right? No one deserves to be harassed like this. Thank you for your comfort, it makes me feel better when I have someone to relate to
This is making me feel a lot better… I was starting to think no one cared. Thank you so much, I’m glad someone understands
I was chased by a man on the street
Today I went over to my aunt and cousin’s apartment in the city to hang out because she got a new puppy. It was around dinner time and my aunt was cooking chili dogs, but didn’t have any buns. She is pretty much fine with whatever her daughter (my cousin) does so she offered we walk to the grocery store and pick up some. As soon as I stepped out with my cousin I realized it probably wasn’t the best idea to be out so late, it was dark, and really warm so there were a lot of people roaming around. I started telling my cousin I didn’t feel too safe, and she told me we were fine. A little later we noticed a young man walking behind us. I didn’t have my contacts on and it was dark, so I couldn’t see much. He had darker skin, a hoodie, and his hands in his pockets. Even if he was just walking the same path we were, I couldn’t help but to feel a little scared. We didn’t start running until he picked up his pace. Now the part that pissed me off the most was my cousin. Before we left the apartment she put on these little shorts and high socks, which is fine. We could have walked out naked, and no one would have the right to follow or rape us or whatever, but knowing people in the world, they don’t all have that same mind set. I’m not saying she shouldn’t have worn those shorts, because I was wearing shorts too. What I didn’t like was the fact that she had her mom’s car keys dangling in her hand and her iphone out, because she wanted people to think she was older (she actually told me this). But get this, as the guy starts picking up his pace, she starts laughing. LAUGHING. Here we are, running down a dark alley being followed by a weirdo and she has the nerve to laugh. Obnoxiously and loudly, I might add. My cousin has always been like this, she’ll laugh off any negative cat calls or compliments by people she doesn’t have an interest in, flirtatiously. She loves the attention. We turn at the end of a street near a hotel, running, and the guy is running after us as well. I remember thinking, “is this real?” I would have never guessed this could have actually happened to me. We crossed the road and he did as well. This guy was definitely following us. I must admit I’m really glad my cousin was there because my heart was pounding, my eyes were watering, and i was so scared and unaware of my surroundings that I didn’t even notice the nearby hotel. We ran in, and I told the guy at the counter about the whole thing. He asked if we called the police, yaddah yaddah. We sat down in the lounge and I asked my cousin if she could call her mom. She did, but she lied to her. She told her we were still walking to the grocery store. Pissed even more, I called my aunt myself and told her everything. Her reaction surprised me, she doubted he was following us. With tears in my eyes, I asked if she could come pick us up and walk us home. My aunt as well was laughing at how much I was “overreacting”. The rest of the night, I was a little distant, but minutes after the event, my cousin starts taking selfies and everyone moves on like nothing happened at all.
