    Statutory Rape

    Ok, not sure if the people commenting here are more men than women, or both. I have only told 1 person this in my whole life and felt the need to comment, but here it goes. From a woman's point a view who is now 46 looking back at her 10th (14-15yrs old) grade high school life. I had a gorgeous male typing teacher (28yrs old) that I had an infatuation (love for me at the time) on. This mas was married , no kids. I was emotionally more mature than my age. When I was 23-24yrs old my best girl friend was 40yrs old and to this day we still are best of friends, she is now 63. I had been kicked out of my home with my parents and out of the school I was in, and was living with an older married sister in a different state. I am the youngest of 6. Back to my story. I began a new school in a different state. I was in love with this teacher. I pretended to have a lot emotional distress (although I had a few problems, I did everything and anything to get his attention. I made it worse than it really was)so he would pay more attention to me. He spent a lot of time talking with me and trying to help, he was so kind. I knew he was attracted to me, you know, you can just tell. Anyway, I would have easily had sex with him, since this was 30 yrs ago and my age, I didn't know of anything called statutory rape, guessing he did though. No matter what I did or said he would not go so far as to even kiss me. If this man would have decided to have sex with me, it would have been mutual. I wanted a relationship with him, he did not apparently. I knew exactly what I was doing and to this day, I still knew what I was doing. After time had passed a little, I ended up quitting school. (Btw, I am a college graduate.) If things would had turned out a little different and we did have sex, that man would have been not to blame what so ever! That is what I wanted. If we had, and he would have been caught somehow and was going to be sentenced to any amount of jail, a ruined career, marriage and so on, it would have completely devastated me and I would have done anything in my power to convince the courts or anyone one else involved it was not rape in any way or means. Would I have considered suicide? I really don't know, but if I would not have, I would still be feeling horrible to this day if he had to serve a ridiculous jail sentence. I have never posted here, but felt the need for a few of you to realize you don't know the whole story and you never will. I lived it and few have such an experience so I thought maybe a little insight from a different point of view could not hurt for such a sensitive case. People please don't say rude things to me, it's not easy telling a world of strangers something you have only told your closest, dearest friend. I can not change the past, and the past has made me who I am. I feel I'm a decent person, raised a terrific 27 yr old kid, have a awesome a career and have been with my husband for 16 yrs. Thanks for hearing me out, and please don't judge me. Just remember sometimes things are not always as they seem.
