I was raped by my ex-partner. It happened multiple times over the space of a weekend. It’s taken six years for me to be able to say that without guilt or doubt.

Shortly after I left the relationship, he began dating another girl. I have never met her, but I could tell from her Facebook profile she was shy and unsure of herself. That’s his type. He picks girls like us and makes us feel lucky he even looked twice at us.
